YAY!!! Smals update!

Hi everyone! June has been a great stitchy month and have a lot to show you. I did a sort of experiment, at the first of june, to see if I could finish an ornament a day for a week. That was fun and I did manage to finish stitching 7 ornies in a week

On a sad note. One of my Favorite designers, Joan Elliott, was in a terrible accident. A trailer, towed by a car, came across the center line and plowed into the car Joan was in. Breaking Joan's collar bone, ribs, sternum and other body parts. Even after this horrific accident Joan told everyone she is "fine" and hope to be home from the hospital very soon. Now, I can't imagine saying "fine" after such a terrible accident. We hope that Joan's great spirit will carry her through to a speedy recovery.

My Ami soeur Michelle is busy knitting her petit animals and I love seeing these marvelous creations.

 Her superb knitted clothes are perfect in every way.

 Michelle uses DMC #8 and #12 perle cottons.
Still amazes me that Michelle uses knitting needles the size of hat pins!

Wishing everyone a happy stitchy day!

What super finishes and beautifully stitched. Sorry to hear about Joan Elliot, she too is one of my favourite designers, Hope she is well on the way to recovery.. she must be in pain, I know as I have a broken arm which I did 12 weeks ago and it is still giving me pain.
