Thursday already?

The days seem to be flying by this week but I guess being back into the regular routine of work during the day makes it seem more so. Its been unbearably hot here this week too so I'm hanging out for the weekend to start, makes escaping from the heat alot easier, especially when you can have a cold shower to cool off.

Some more new stash has arrived in the mail this week. First up, I took advantage of Mary Kathryn's recent free postage world wide and stocked up on a few CCN and LHN patterns. I also succumed to the new Lizzie Kate Double Flips, which I've decided to stitch for my Mum. She was absolutely wrapped with the 12 Christmas Blessings all framed up I gave her for Christmas so I think she'll really like this too.


Next up a few Mill Hill Kits I splurged on before Christmas from Sew and Sew in the UK. I just love these and was thrilled to find them available on their site when I did a search. I plan to have a mini tree this year with just my Mill Hill ornies hanging on it.


Then from a surprise from Carol, the latest Just Cross Stitch magazine - Carol, you know me too well, this issue has lots of great projects to chose from.


And finally for today, my latest progress pic of Curly Q Ewe, only the lady and a bit of the border to go now.

thanks for stopping by xx

Lovely stash, you'll have lots of beautiful projects to work on in the future. The tree with the Mill Hill ornaments will be lovely, as will the LK Double Flips.

Great progress on Curly Q, it looks wonderful. She'll be done in no time.
