Friday Night Stitching...

Wonderful Wendy has hosted another fab evening for us... Thanks Wendy x
My week has been very full & quite challenging, so it was really lovely to just sit for a while & do some easy cross stitching.
This heart was a little kit that my DDC was given ages ago... I had started it earlier in the week & finished it last night by stitching the purple on the heart & the green lines. Seems odd the way the lines don't frame the heart evenly, but it's what the chart shows & I didn't have the brain space to figure it out any other way! I think I'll just stitch this one onto the front of a needlebook.
 Some energy boost was required before moving on to the next project:
I assure you I didn't eat all of this... DDC & mrHS were willing partakers!
(the Cadbury Breakaway was very disappointing... all broken & messy in the wrapper before I even opened it... I should have stuck with trusty TimTams, or Caramel Crowns)

Picking up the needle again... this time, a cheery little Penguin... the Aida piece being so small, I sewed some scrap strips around the edges so I could manage it in a hoop.
 
The magazines I was buying often had a little kit, so I've kept the ones I will stitch & ditched the rest... they'll come in handy for a quick project!
 Very satisfying evening of stitching, even though it was not a lot done, it was very therapeutic.

DDY who is currently in the US... her university program is finished now... she & her bestie are going to San Francisco for a few days before heading home... Of course she's having a WOW of a time.

~ Thanks For Popping By & I Hope You Have A Wonderful Weekend ~

Such a pretty stitchery. Did you know that you can eat all those broken biscuits without any guilt as the calories have "run out". Well that is my theory.

I loved visiting California, though we didn't actually go to San Francisco! Your heart stitchery will look lovely on the front of a needle book - great idea. I'm not sure I would have know what to do with it! I would certainly have known what to do with those delicious snacks though!

Cute little heart, Anthea. Glad to hear you didn't eat all those bikkies. How annoying some were broken. Your little penguin is going to be so cute. xx
