PIF's Sent & Received!

Following on from my last post, I sent our my three PIF's early last week and then waited with baited breath for them to arrive at their new homes. One of them knew where it was going, but the other two were going on a magical mystery tour with their new home being a surprise.
Those of you who read my blog regularly may remember my sneaky post a while back asking for favourite colours etc, and it's that info that was used for my pif's lol.
Sally received the dark purple/red one, Karan received the autumn colours one and Claire received the dark pinky one. The multicoloured one in the pic I actually made for myself as I didn't want to part with any of them lol. They are all stitched with Vikki Clayton's silk, on 28ct 1 strand over 1 thread and I loved stitching them.

I included with each some floss tags and a skein of Carries Creations thread in their favourite colours, and I think from the responses that they were all pleased with their gifts.
I'm still doing my course, six weeks lessons down now, four more lessons to go, then putting together my portfolio over the summer holidays before it all has to be handed in for moderation in September. Been at my lesson today and been doing about how numeracy is taught, and my head hurts now lol. Got all my homework to do which I may start on tonight once Erin is in bed, but depends on whether my brain can handle anymore thinking by then lol.
Thanks to everyone who visits and takes the time to leave a comment, it is very much appreciated.

Beautiful floss tags.

Very crafty of you to use a question on your blog to find out about favourite colours.

They're pretty. Did you make up the design yourself?

They are all lovely Lisa. I absolutely love mine and can't wait to use it. What design did you use?

Karan said...

They are all gorgeous & I love mine, thank you so much. Even DH said how pretty it was & he doesn't usually comment. Glad the course is going well. I can sympathise though: maths always makes my brain hurt! LOL Have a good weekend Lisa. :0)
