Thanks for all the positive comments left about the fabric ornaments - I hope to see some pics pop up on your blogs over the next few months perhaps? I'd been meaning to post my version of the instructions for quite some time so thats another thing crossed off my To Do List!!
Last weekend my stitching buddies Kath and Clare came around for a stitching/chatting/snacking session :) We always have such a neat time hanging out - sharing what we've been up too, or showing off recent stash purchases, and enjoying a bite to eat together. I must have had turbo needles because by the time the ladies left I only had a few stitches left to do on Travelling Stitcher, which I then proceeded to finish the following day.
I've almost finished the needlecase part too then it will be off to the local fabric store to match up some fabric to make up the stitching case. When I purchased this pattern I decided not to go ahead and buy the premade case.
On Sunday, DH, Hannah and I spent the afternoon with DH's brother and his family, including our niece Alice, who turns 1 year old today. They had an afternoon tea party for her and we all enjoyed sitting out in the sunshine. Hannah just loved running around their large garden. She was quite worn out by the time we reached home.
I found a frame that I thought would be just right for the Tralala design I stitched earlier in the month and was able to get it framed on Saturday afternoon.
We've had some real changeable weather here so far this spring, one day it will be fine, sunny and warm, and the next it will be like the middle of winter. At the end of last week we had a real cold snap and really unheard of for this time of the year, there was snow falling about 15 minutes away from us. It made me feel like getting my knitting out but I don't have a current project on the go. So I decided to knit up the wool I'd bought from the craft show. This was so simple, cast on 30 odd stitches and then knit every row.
