FNWF & More birthday gifts…..& photo bucket???

DSCF7438

Friday night saw me sewing this pattern holder together, this one will be for me, finally something just for me Smile I used a new thread to me called Threadworx no: 1090 which was given to me by my fabulous friend Shez in one of our swaps and I have to say it was lovely to work with now to find another project so I can use the green maybe something Christmassy?? Thanks Shez I’ll have to investigate a few more colours in this range.

I also had more birthday gifts arrive later in the week and haven’t been able to take pictures of them till now….

This lovely and thoughtful gift came from Simone, I’ve already put parlon behind the stitchery and collected the DMC threads needed and made myself a little travel kit to take with me to Tassie, lets see how much I can get done while I’m away. Thanks Simone they both brought a smile to my face Smile

These pretties came from Narelle tied up with bakers twine, I just love cottage garden threads so was thrilled when I spotted this one, another to add to my growing collection. and the fabrics are just me to a T Narelle, thankyou for my lovely birthday gift Smile

this final gift was from Michelle, isn’t the card divine! Michelle sent me some Midwinter red fabrics as well as a mini charm pack of it I nearly swooned with giddiness when I spotted this little package of yumminess!!! Then to top it of she also sent me a reel of red ribbon, now I really do need to seriously start thinking about what I’m going to be making with all these gorgeous red fabrics I’ve been sent for my birthday I have decided on a big project which is a star quilt found on the moda bake shop website but I’ve seen it done in red and white and I totally love this version of it now to think of a few small mini projects…..any ideas, suggestions or links would be greatly appreciated Smile

Now I have a question to ask, does anyone know how I can get rid of the  photo bucket image that’s suddenly appeared on my blog today???? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as it’s very annoying to look at when scrolling through my blog as I’m sure it is to you that read it Smile

I think it's related to the person/site you got your background images from - it looks like they have exceeded their limit :(

Leanne said...

Hello Barb,

Great night of stitching, always lovely to find a thread that just glides through the fabric.

Happy days.
Bev.

Hi Barb love what you made and glad you love those threads I will pick you up a couple more ,what sort of colours are you after? sorry I don't know what a photo bucket is either,is it that yellow pic about coffee.
You and Anne have a wonderful time next week and can't wait to hear about your travels,sending big hugs my lovely friend.xx

For those who don't know, 'photobucket' is basically an image sharing & storage website... are you a user of this site, Barb?

Barb the only thing I can think of is that you can go into your blog 'layout', and you should be able to find it as an 'image' down the right sidebar of the 'layout' page; then click to 'remove'. Perhaps I'm suggesting something you've already tried?
That is indeed peculiar, that something should appear on your blog without you putting it there... I hope you can get it removed asap! xx
