Our weekend just flew by doing all the normal things around the house. Also, Saturday night DH and I went out with friends to a local fundraising event, to see a live band, which was a heap of fun. The evening had a country and western theme. I'm not really into that sort of music but we had a ball, dancing all night and having lots of laughs. My cousin Donna was also here for the weekend and as it was her birthday yesterday, it was a great start to her birthday celebrations. Needless to say, we all have a very low key day yesterday!!
Lately, I've had the urge to stitch up a few Christmas ornaments, and these three I finished earlier this month:
one of four ornaments from White Christmas by Birds of a Feather
stitched on 32ct mocha belast with suggested threads - GAST, Weeks
Ewe & Eye & Friends
32ct cream belfast & GAST Threads
32ct cream linen using suggested threads.
This is the Tralala design I'm stitching to turn into a birth sampler - sorry, not such a great photo today. I'm using a piece of hand dyed linen for this one.
My Quaker Lady has seen the light out of my stitching bag recently too and I've added a few motifs as well as started the alphabet - I had to wait on a order of thread to get back to this one.
Coming up next weekend I'm lucky enough to be going to be spend a few days at the beach with some friends - we're going to be staying a friend's family beach house for a winter crafty get together. I've already sorted out a whole lot of projects to take (stitching and knitting) and I'll definately be packing my book and a couple of magazines. I'm sure there'll be lots of great food and even a glass or two of wine - sounds just perfect to me:)
Thanks for stopping by!
