For the curious out there here is a link about Beltane and how some Pagans may choose to celebrate this happy occasion. Oh and just to set your minds at rest, so you aren't left with any traumatising mental images: the only times I do sky clad is in the shower or bath 'cos I don't consider getting arrested for flashing my booty at the neighbours a great way of celebrating any occasion. ;0) LMAO.
A great way of getting any day off to a good start is by receiving a stash parcel and here are some of the goodies I ordered from Thread Bear:
I completed the finishing on the Monthly Challenge piece last night - finally! Yay! I've taken a couple of pics but, as I said in my last post, I can't show them yet as the piece is off to a new home. This is the first time I've sent anything bigger than a stitched card to a fellow stitcher so I'm pretty nervous about it - all I can say is I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and just hope the recipient likes it.
The empty scroll frame (the one that had ET on it) is shouting louder and louder to me to fill it with a new project but the ditherer in me still can't decide which one it'll be. I've crossed this years L*K charts off the list because I haven't got all the threads needed and really don't want to go buying anything else now until after our holiday this month - it would be nice to take a little spending money with me. LOL There's the Papillon SAL, though that needs a floss toss on the COM Jonquil fabric before that can be started, but everything is kitted up and all set to go on LDS Rosemarkie, IC Tanglewood and Chatelaines Autumn Dusk......... those three are so different it's difficult to know which way to jump. Shout up ladies: which would you go for?
In the meantime, the perle thread for stitching the heart motif on the For Amanda SAL has arrived so I'm planning on tackling that some time today........ plus my card stash is calling, so a few cards will have to be made too.
Thanks for visiting and I hope your day is filled with Blessings and joy, whatever you are doing. :0)
