My WFB

Before anyone asks WFB is Wee Fat Bird (better know as a round robin). I am doing this with Terri, AnnT (aunty) and AnnP (annie). This is Winter from a set of seasonal postcards designed by Laura Gabutti Lattuada of Passione Ricamo. I have had these for a few years and got them as freebies from the PR site, however they have since been published in WOCS magazine and I do not thing they are available as freebies any longer. The fabric is Woodland Violets and the thread is DMC (apart from a few stitches in #4 braid - white/silver). I am way ahead of myself on this one as we are supposed to be stitching our own piece in May ready to send on the first weekend in June but I wanted to get it cleared up and ready so that it would not be on my mind. I have enjoyed stitching this, its quite tiny - less than 4" square, even though I think it looks larger on the picture.

Sorry Julie (lol nearly called you Jane - its all these J's confusing me), but UFO didnt get done yesterday as I wanted to finish stitching this, I will however be doing some today. sob sob I cannot do Serendipity as my threads haven't come yet though I know Jayne will rush them out to me as soon as the order arrives with her.

I am off now to order more stash in the form of the embellishments for Taj Mahal. Ohhhhhhhhhhh I am looking forward to getting started on my new rota. Alas I have a scissor fob to make first, still hopefully that will not take too long - I know the stitching wont take long its the making up Im worried about lol.

Hello Helen.

The WFB looks great, I love this pattern too. I used it for a RR a while ago and it turned out beautiful which reminds me, I haven´t put the finishing touch on mine. Great to be here for a visit again. Hope you have a great day tomorrow.

All the best,
Edda
