Weekend Update

This has to be my first weekend post in quite some time. After the past few busy weekends its been nice to have been chilling out around home over the past few days. I've managed to catch up on all my jobs around the house and also catch up on some much needed sleep :)

In the mail yesterday was a envelope of goodies from Carol. Carol and I were both beginning to get a little worried it would never turn up :)

Carol sent some pretty fabrics, the May issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework with a definate must stitch soon Sweetheart Tree pattern in it, and which I'd read about on a BB somewhere and was thinking I'd have to wait months before it arrived in NZ, lol, and a beautifully stitched biscornu.



Just goregous huh? I'm a lucky girl, thanks again Carol.

Here's where I'm at with Sampler Game Board, so enjoying working on this each week - the little houses have a lot of stitching to them. Had I mentionned that I'm stitching this on 32ct Lambswool Jobelan? A lovely colour which really shows off the threads.

Friday afternoon I spent at my local scrapbooking shop and this is what I made, 4 mini canvases hinged together with hooks and eyes. It was a lot of fun and I have already have decided to make some more of these as gifts.
