Tralala progress and lots of great books

Earlier in the week I took this pic of my progress on Tralala's Jour de Cueillette. I sat up late last night to watch the final of New Zealand's Dancing with the Stars and actually got it finished so will have a completed pic to share in the next few days. It was a lovely stitch, I hope to stitch more by this designer sometime soon.




One of the local charity organisations held its annual secondhand Bookarama last Friday and Saturday, and I was able to be there when it first opened. This is the pile of books I got for just $15.00 NZ.



These will keep me going over the coming winter months don't you think?

This little Tralala design is so cute. I just love it and it's on my wish list. Nice progress.
I have a weakness for book piles, no matter if the books are new of second hand or from the liberary. I'd take yours in a second, lol. Enjoy.

The Tralala design is adorable. Can's wait to see the finished piece. And you have some great books there - our library holds sales like this two times a year. It's always a great time to stock up!
