Weekly Update

I thought it was time for another weekly update - I just don't seem to be finding time to do any blogging during the week at the moment.

A few weeks ago I went along to my monthly class at the local scrapbooking shop. This time it was cards:


I'm now half way on an Open Heart, this has been a lovely stitch so far.


And more progress on the Jillian stocking this week. As you can see, I've run out of the Concord thread so will need to order another skein. Just a note to anyone thats intending to stitch this design, you will need three skeins of the Concord colour.


Its a gorgeous day here today, which is a nice change from the terrible winds we've been having for the past week. Although its a lovely day, my DH is very sad this morning, the All Blacks rugby team have just lost to France in the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup, only by two points. It was so nerve wracking watching the last few minutes, we were both on the edge of our seats.

Love your cards. The flower looks like it is quilted. Nice progress on your stocking. I love open heart. It is such a pretty, delicate stitch.

Hello from a fellow NZer ^_^
Been lurking for a while, and decided to come out of the woodwork now.

These are all lovely designs, and I especially love the Open Heart one!

Nicki said...

At least England beat the Aussies! I'm a bit heartbroken about the ABs though :(

Lovely stitching :)

Isabelle said...

Katrina and Nicki, I'm sorry about yesterday evening... In all honesty I think the All Blacks deserved to win! Those championships are not always very representative of the levels of the teams involved.
I was thinking about you, Nicki and Kiwi Jo yesterday and thinking how unfair you must have felt that was.

An Open Heart is GORGEOUS! :)

Kath said...

Love the cards Katrina, and Jillian is coming along nicely.

Open Heart growing too. Love the cards, very pretty.

Yes, sad boy in this house too, whole nation in disbelief I think. Good on the French. And to think Aussie out too. It was fingernail biting stuff those last few minutes.

I have to say that was the only good reason to be on a 5am shift this week - I got to watch the All Blacks vs France match during work ;) Very sad with the end result, though ... Your WIP's are looking awesome, and the cards are great! :D

Christine said...

I love the cards, Katrina!! An Open Heart is looking fantastic.

Kajsa said...

Those are beautiful cards! Your wip's are so pretty too. Love the stocking.

So sorry to hear about the team, I thought they had a good chance.

Michelle said...

Oh your stocking is beautiful! That concord is a fabulous color. I hope you can get some more soon.
