Sunshine and more sunshine

This week really feels like we're holiday - our days are consisting of sleeping in, having late breakfasts, doing a few things before it gets hot, then having lunch, going for a dip in the pool, chilling out around the house, then maybe another swim, having dinner, then another swim before settling down to end the evening watching a movie or whatever takes our fancy on tv. LOL. We're just soaking up the sunshine and relaxing, guess thats what a summer holiday is all about isn't it?

For today I'm going to share my wonderful Christmas stitchey gifts I received from friends -

first up, is a lovely flat fold that Kath gave me, a Tralala design. Too cute and it was very hard to pack this away for another 12 months.

Kath also gave me this EEF chart, which I'm hoping to start stitching one day very soon.

My friend Wendy, gave me these little glass holders for my scissors. Wendy is a great fan of visiting op shops and second hand stores on her travels and many months ago now I asked her to keep an eye for some for me and lucky for me, she found these two cute ones.


From my friend Shelley at work, she gave me this set of DMC linen threads - I haven't stitched with these before so I'll have to find a suitable project for these.


Clare, another stitching pal, made me a block roll for finished stitched pieces and a Lizzie Kate chart. Very cool.


So I was very spoilt with all my great gifts :)
as always, thanks for leaving your comments - I so enjoy hearing from everyone!! Enjoy your day,
~Katrina~

I am loving your blog. Those glass holders are great for your scissors. i would never have thought of using them for that. I think I may have a nice green one in the cupboard.

What gorgeous gifts you have received.

Sounds like you're having a lovely, relaxing time off.

Kath said...

Crikey, think you better give that ornie back to me, the making up does not look as good as I would have liked. Your scissors look great in the holders. Thank goodness it's a little cooler tonight, bliss for the sleep that is for sure.

So glad to hear you are enjoying a relaxing holiday... you must be loving having a pool this summer! From what I hear, NZ is having a fantastic summer. The baby and I are coming home at the beginning of March so I'm hoping that it'll be an Indian summer so that we can enjoy lots of warm days/swims at the beach!
