In Today's Mail

I was very excited to see a little box in our mail today, all the way from the Silver Needle. I love how they wrap up your stash ever so pretty.

And just what was in there? The newest Just Nan pattern along with all the goodies to go with it!!

I can't wait to get started on this - I've already kitted up the threads and might just get it underway this evening - it looks like its going to be a fun stitch!!

This week I have I finished another ornament for the ever-growing pile that need to be made into actual ornaments.

Lastly for today, I thought you might like to see Hannah's birthday cross stitch now in its frame, which was made for me by a friend. I went for a simple moulding in tan colour. I was really pleased with how it turned out and it looks lovely hanging on the wall in Hannah's bedroom alongside her other birthday stitched pieces.

Oh yes, before I go, for those that asked which beach I was at last weekend - I went to Pourere beach, which is only a 30 minute drive east of our town. Its a very popular beach during our summer months. I spent alot of time there as a kid and when I was at high school with my family, we used to stay there every summer for three weeks in a caravan. They were the best holidays ever. You can see some pics of Pourere Beach here.
Have a fun weekend!

Can't wait for my copy of Twilight Pearls to arrive, it looks gorgeous, but also scary at the same time. Will be looking forward to watching your progress on this one.

Adore the framed mermaids!

Lovely ornament finish and the framed sampler for Hannah turned out beautifully!

I can't wait to see your start on that Just Nan pattern. It's so, so pretty. I don't think I'd have the courage to even try that, so I'll just have to content myself with your project.

Love your LHN ornament - very pretty. And your piece for Hannah's room looks spectacular framed!!

What a pretty kit, it looks like a bit of a challenge to stitch. Love how it has been wrapped, like getting a birthday present.

Your latest ornament is lovely and the mermaids look perfect in that frame.
