Cube-tastic!


In my MM post, I mentioned I had a stitchy finish. Let me present my first ever cube!

Design: Love
Designer: The Stitcherhood
Fabric: 14ct pink hand-dyed (by me!) aida
Fibers: Rainbow Gallery Splendor Silk
#911 Christmas Red
Alterations: Added the border on the right side.

I want to stitch this one again and make it into a card. I think it would be a cute finish.


MORE BIRTHDAY GOODNESS!
I had not one, but TWO birthday surprises in today's mail. The last card from the CSE Birthday Floss Club arrived from Georgena:

Thank you, Georgena!


I'd already received a gift certificate from Nancy, so I was really surprised to find a "Happy Birthday!" package from her in my mailbox:

I just LOVE the ice cream card! Inside she wrote that this was Part 2 of my birthday gift. What are the little gifties, you're wondering??? Hmmm....

What a wonderful package. The bracelet is gorgeous! The photo doesn't do it justice.

Lovely cube Meari x

silentsgirl said...

Your finishes are nothing short of amazing, Meari. I love to stitch, but *loathe* finishing, and usually try to find someone else to do it for me! Those birthday gifts look good enough to eat. That blue fibre, in particular, is scrumptious.
