A Few Finishes

Hello there

Well, my holiday week has nearly come to an end, it has flown by - I knew I should have taken next week off too, lol.

During my break I've been stitching a little thank you gift for my Aunty, who has looked after Hannah for us since she was 6 months old.  Hannah will still go there in the mornings, as I start work just after 8am,  and then again after school, and during the holidays too. She's quite happy about that as she's already missing her little daycare friends:)

I also finally finished my friend's birthday gift recently:


Flowers for You by Blackbird Designs
stitched on 36ct linen using most of the recommended threads

My next little finish was a design I couldn't resist starting when I first spotted it, a freebie from the gorgeous Snowflower Diaires Blog:


You Are So Loved 
stitched on 32ct cream linen, threads of my own choice

My mum asked if I could knit some little hats for one of her friend's baby twin grandaughters due in a few weeks, this is the lovely wool she chose and it was so soft and lovely to knit with.



Some happy mail arrived the other day too, Gail Pan's new Christmas stitchery book.


I purchased this from Sarah at Quilt Fabric Delights and she arranged for Gail to sign my book, how cool is that!


Sarah also included this cute project card from Leanne's House


Have a fun weekend!
see you soon xx
