Birthday card for Sarah

Today is Sarah’s birthday.  She is my youngest son Jordyn’s girlfriend/fiancĂ© (my future daughter-in-law).  I created hers at the same time as I made my nephew’s because they both love the Zelda video games.  I was already creating one, why not make 2.  They are slightly different.  Sarah’s card is smaller and fits in a pre-made envelope.  Glenn’s I had to cut down a large brown envelope.

Here is the front to look like a Nintendo Switch console.

The inside of the card shows the character Link and a Tri-Force (triangle).

As usual I stamped my name on the back.

Fully Finished Gallery #5

I finished stitching Just Nan’s BlueBird Tweet back in June 2015.  I finally assembled it last month.  I was surprised that it would stand up on the wire legs.
I already showed these but they were finished last month.

Floral 2019 SAL April update #3

I finally completed the April flower block.

I also started the May flower block.  I only completed the blue butterfly.
Here is what the May block should look like when it is completed.  If you are interested you can join the Floral 2019 SAL on Lesley Teare’s blog.

Painting Warhammer Miniatures

I guess I don’t have enough hobbies, I spent yesterday helping my oldest son Jaspar paint some of his Warhammer Miniatures.  Here is what I accomplished after 6 hours of painting.  I’m a perfectionist, so everytime I used one colour and it touched the other colour I had to touch up the colours.  Thank goodness I only used 4 colours to paint the horses.  He wants to paint his whole army (a few hundred figures) by the end of the month so he can battle his brother Jordyn.

He doesn’t feel like painting today, so I’m able to play in my craft room.  I will try to finish the April flower block.  Not sure what else to work on yet.

Floral 2019 SAL April update #1

I continued to work on the April block.  I finished one flower including the backstitching and the butterfly.  I hope to work on it again tomorrow.
Here is a reminder of what the April block looks like.
