Finally......



Back of cube


Here is the birthday gift for Jenna , she is my partner in the birthday exchange club. Her birthday was this past Tuesday, but the postal service tortured me by delaying delivery of her package. I was so worried that it was lost. But, Jenna received it today and says she adores it and that makes me very happy! This is Dani the Stitching Dragon by Dragon Dreams, modified to purple as Jenna loves the color purple. I also left off the wording and added her name at the bottom. I put Jenna's initials in the hoop which is usually blank as an added touch. I finished it in a cube, as this seems to be my finish of choice at the moment. I put a lovely purple fabric on the back and sent along a few goodies that you see in the bottom photo.

Otherwise, stitching here is sporadic as I have been working a bit this past week and I have to go to work today. I am working on my full of hope pin keep and wanted to have it finished before the end of October. But, I don't think that is going to happen. Next Tuesday, I am having some oral surgery-so who knows how much stitching will go on next week. We'll see. Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend and lots of stitching.

Wowie, Jenna is very lucky to be your birthday club girl. Your cube is stunning! Love the choice of colours, but then, you have such a way with colours anyway! Cute dragon.
Good luck with your oral surgery. That doesn't sound like much fun. I hope it won't affect your lovely stitching!

You bet I love it! My favorite color (purple) and one of my favorite themes (dragon), coupled with goodies in my favorite color and from one of my favorite designers (Just Nan). A winner of a birthday package all around!

Good luck with your oral surgery. I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday.

What a creative present - I especially love her name in the hoop. You are so talented. Best of luck with the oral surgery - hope you will feel up to stitching during recovery.

Wonderful stitching AND finishing! Jenna must have been thrilled indeed...
I wish you the best with that oral surgery. Hopefully, you won't need too much paracetamol... and you'll be able to stitch...
Take care, Sharon.

Wow. Jenna must be thrilled-- a lovely dragon and a pile of stash! What's not to like?! :) You can be very proud of your finishing of choice -- it's perfect. I haven't tried a cube yet. You're inspiring me to want to do one tonite.
