First birthday presents:

Wine from Jami – that I bought for her – she re-gifted it back to me! Cake and flowers from Scott.

Another group I am in had a birthday exchange.  I decided to join. Gifts from them.

OK now for pics of floss tosses – help I am terrible at this!

Cottage Series –

Does this work on this blue/pinkish opalescent fabric?  I have a couple more pics of this toss.

Lizzie Kate’s new flip it:

Lambswool or?

Waterlilly Jobelan?

Are you doing the cottages all on one piece?? The blue might work for all. I am doing them on seperate pieces and have used several different colors. I would just make sure the white shows up well. I’ve had trouble seeing the white on many of my color choices. I’d do a floss toss on the flip it too and see if any colors get lost on either one.

Wow! I love the pieces that you got for your birthday! They seem to really fit you and what I know of your personality. =] I think the houses should work great on the fabric that you’ve pulled. You might need to do some floss tweaking on a couple of them, but I like your choice there. As for the Lizzie Kate… I vote for the Lambswool. I think it will make the piece much more vibrant. Again, there might be some floss tweaking, but I think I would be much happier with that fabric. Good luck, Michele! I’ll be anxiously awaiting updates now… =]

Great pressies Chele! Love the floss toss for the Cottage series. As for the Flip Its, well I like WaterLily, but I think the Lambswool would work better.

Wow, thank you ladies very much!Nancy M. – yes I am doing them all on one piece. I actually have off on Thursday and hubby doesn’t so I might actually get to start it!! I am so excited! Thanks for your suggestions. You are one of the best fabric/thread choice people I know!Nancy, Kay and Mel – the lambswool was the over all choice so that is what I will be doing it on. I am excited to have another couple of new starts coming up. Gee, am I over 70 WIP’s yet? I do not think I really want to know!! I do have a finish though so 5 done this year. After I get it framed this weekend, I will post again.
