A finish - Spring and other things

Back in July I went to a workshop in Loxton with Anni Downs it was a most enjoyable weekend. I finished the project, a note book cover some weeks ago and haven't posted a picture. I really enjoy Anni's projects I had her "A Christmas Story" so decided to make the "naughty & nice" wall hanging for a friend she has three children(it will drive her mad with the constant moving of names from the naughty to the nice tag). I have really enjoyed needle turn this time around.

Anni Downs projects

Spring is here early morning sun on the first flush of roses.








Some weeks back I posted how disappointed I had been with what I received from Amities VIP mail outs. I wrote to them saying much the same. I received these fabric in the post last week which is more in line with what I had expect and seen when I originally joined.

It's good to know that Amities was so responsive. Maybe they were just having a few off weeks. 8)

So glad you got some satisfaction for you trouble. I am a firm believer in letting people know if something is less than expected.
I do so love your flowers! Those Poppies remind me of a childhood garden I knew, once.

Great finishes!
I'm happy you had a better experience with Amities this time.
Your poppy photos are awesome!

Sarah said...

I am pleased to see they actually listened. Gezz they really thought they get away with it?

Good stuff with all your completed projects!

Love the 'good/naughty' wall hanging! And the roses and posies are so pretty. We have to wait another half a year to get those back in our garden.
I am glad you received new fabrics!
Have a lovely week.

Shontelle said...

Awesome new photo Leanne! Hope you're having a good week xx

Loving the waterlily photo! The reflection is just beautiful! I really love waterlilys. (I have a Lily. We always crack up when anyone says, "Would you like a drink of water Lily?" My last three kids all have names that can do such word jokes. Completely accidental and very funny the first time we ever said it and realised the joke!)

That's great that things worked out! I had that problem with a pattern... (I probably told you this!) anyway I contacted the pattern co. and they sent me a coupon for a "free" pattern!
Being as we got our first taste of
"snow" this week... ahem.... I'm rather envious of your beautiful flowers!

Teresa said...
