Today is Vonna's birthday and I sent her the needle book above. She received it today and I got the nicest thank you e-mail (Thanks Vonna!) I knew she liked flowers and the color yellow so I knew I had my work cut out for me when I found this pattern.
I started my Lizzie Kate July piece yesterday. I didn't think the red border for the stamp was going to show to well on the yellow fabric so I changed the border to red.
I need your help. My DH's Aunt would like me to stitch this piece for her. She has said right off the bat that she would pay me to do this. So doing it as a gift is not a option but, it was a sweet idea for thouse of you who asked me about it or mentioned it.
I"m trying to figure how much I should charge her to do this piece. I would be paying for the chart, fabric, floss and shipping it to her in Australia. Is $50.00 US out of line? I was thinking of $40.00 but, I don't want to sell myself short or end up not getting much for my time cause what I'd need to stitch the piece and mail it would cost more then I realize.
My MIL would like me to do a piece for her too but, she's not decided on one yet but, the one she's looking at (different style - she wants Chickens for her Kitchen).
Monday was DH's birthday I took the day off to spend with him. We didn't do anything special just went out and spent the day together. I got him a small cake we had while watching tv on Monday night.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions, and thanks for all of you who stop by my blog and leave comments. I've had some new visitors lately and I've enjoyed checking out all your blogs.
By the way I still have spots open on my new PIF if your interested!
