Wishing you all a very
I collected a box from the post office this week. It was a lovely parcel for myself, Amy and baby.
Marian over at Gumbo & Grits had put together all of these wonderful goodies for us.
Amy and i opened the parcel together. She's been unwell for over a week now suffering from horrendous migraines. It's been a very stressful and worrying time and this lovely parcel really did cheer her up.
I'm really going to enjoy reading the magazines from the south and making things with the lovelies Marian sent for me and Amy was really emotional that someone else she didn't know had sent some beautiful items for her and baby.
Thank you so much Marian for your kindness xxxx
Today was the reveal of this months challenge.
We had a choice of designs from Chroniques de Frimousse. All very similar, but i chose this cutie.
You can see the others in the album here.
I wrapped my little easter basket in cellophane and had a free raffle at the stitching club on Wednesday evening and one lady went home with a choccie surprise.
Floral Fifteen by Just Nan is finally made up. I spent quite a few hours this week stitching it together. Here's a selection of pics that i took, i couldn't decided which view showed it the best LOL
As you know i'm taking part in my first Round Robin and this month i had the pleasure of stitching on Tina's (no blog).
Hillside Samplings design called Seasonal Samplings is the beautiful chart chosen by Tina. I have loved stitching my part of this one. We're due to pass them on again at the beginning of May.
Sampler Girl SAL was the only other stitching i have done this week.
Stitching over 1 is slow going and also with Wednesday being my night at the stitching club, i would maybe get more accomplished if i did mine on another night as we spend way too much time chatting and drinking tea and not enough stitching time.
This week saw the roofers in, but i must admit there were some frogs hopping about in the roof that caused me some problems with counting - all sorted now and it's growing nicely.
I hope you've all had a lovely Easter with your loved ones. Here the weather has been glorious sunshine, record temperatures for this time of the year and the driest April for over 50 years. DH is not impressed as his lovely garden and allotment is desperate for some rain. I have suggested that maybe we should do a rain dance in the garden, does anyone know the words/moves to an american indian rain dance LOL
