Cross stitching

This time I have cross stitching related pics to show.
First there was the bookmark exchange. Instead of a bookworm, I stitched some readingbugs for Mireille. I liked the colours and it was very nice to see when it was finished.
There is a new SAL going on and the theme is Lizzie Kate. I subscribed to it. 2 of the charts are already sent and stitched. Every 2 weeks we get another month. I think I'm going to stitch a tuck-pillow to display it, see what nice fabric I have in my stach.
For the monthly card exchange, in May the theme was oriental. I stitched a freebie for Jean and she was pleased with it.
The charity Regenboogkussens had the cushioncover ready. I stitched for Marit, the cushionscovers were mirrored for her and her husband, they both have a rough time and the cushions will give them support.
Some more siggies arrived, as always very welcome. I made time to make some new ones and mailed some people who agreed to swap. So more siggies are on their way.
I stitched birthdaycards, but they haven't arrived yet, this time it really is SNAIL mail! The theme for the monthly card exchange is hearts, I finished mine, it will be framed this afternoon and tomorrow it will go to its new owner. I'm stitching another piece for the Regenboogkussens, some more birthdaycards have to be made next week as they are in early July.
So cross stitching will be the theme for the next week. Then I want to stitch on my quilt top again, block 3 is almost finished now.
My grandson is healthy again, full of misschief as usual. He will be with me the whole of next week, so I will have my hands full and stitching can only be done at nappingtime.
Yesterday and today are cold and grey, not very nice to celebrate the longest day of the year, weather will improve though. At the moment the loss of my darlinghusband is weighing heavy again, I feel very lonely and lost. I know things will be better again and those little arms and wet kisses will ease the pain the coming days.

You sure been busy stitching and all your finishes looks great. I too, started the February block last night but i have to frog it all out as i made a mistake with the counting. I am not really happy with it, i wanted to throw it away but it is on the same piece as the January one.

Thinking of you. (((hugs)))
