Weekend round up

Read, stitch, watch tv and dvds with Glenn, a little bit of housework - thats what my weekend consisted of, lol. It was more like winter here, with heavy downpours and a very cold feel to the air. We even had our fire going for the first time:)
So for a stitching round up - I was able to finish, and make up the Wildflowers needleroll.

I love this one, and had a very hard time wrapping it up in order to go in with the other birthday goodies to be posted to my friend in Sweden, lol. I guess I'll just have to stitch it again someday :)
(I can share this pic without spoiling any surprise as my friend doesn't visit here).

I also stitched two small freebies from 4 My Boys, and made some good progress on the Mermaids. I'll share pics of these a bit later in the week. Then I spent some time late Sunday afternoon sorting through small projects that I'd like to stitch in April.

My spring exchange for the SBEB is on its way today too, all the way to the other side of the world, and to country where I've never had a stitching exchange partner from before :) It will be interesting to see how many days it takes to reach its destination.

Thank you all for your comments on my recent happy dances too, they mean a great deal to me.

Katrina - I noticed you're reading "The Reading Group" - I really enjoyed that book! ... I've got the Tenko Club around here somewhere, it was pretty good too, let me know if you want to borrow it :)

Stitchie Kiwi said...

okay - I thought I'd already commented on your stitching, but I can't see it - so I must have just thought about it LOL

I love that needleroll, it is gorgeous!

Katrina...your needleroll is beautiful, I love the colours. It is a pleasure to see ST needlerolls sewn up and in full colour. I'm another needleroll lover but I'm way off your mark of 3 baskets full!

Oh, I absolutely ADORE your Wildflowers needleroll - this is definitely going on my wishlist quick smart!! I read this post days ago, but hadn't gotten around to commenting, and didn't want to 'mark as read' until I did :) I'm happy to join you on your needleroll SAL, too ... can't guarantee I'll be able to stitch on the exact same day, depending what my shifts are, but I'll certainly try :D I'll have to do a reckie and see which charts I've got ... not very many, I think, but enough to get a few stitched up :D
