It's been such a lovely weekend here...
Saturday was cool, cloudy & rainy... perfect for a few indoor chores... Sunday, well the sun was shining, the birds were chirpin' & it was just a stunning 24°C day♥
Thank you everyone who Commented on my post for the 'Cake & Candles Giveaway', and for your lovely Birthday wishes... unfortunately a few ladies were 'no-reply', so your names couldn't be included... sorry I can't figure out how to get the Random Number Generator image here, so I will just go ahead & publish the winning name.
You will be receiving the parcel of goodies! If you will kindly email me your postal details, I'll get it sent away to you.
Wendy is working on a stunning piece of embroidery at the moment, called A Year Of Stitches... it's a slow-growing but gorgeous piece of work... I hope you'll click on her name & go to see her amazing project.
I've received two more Fat Quarter Birthday Club mailings...
Lovely Asta... what a great fabric, & I'll be able to use those threads for sure... my EPP skills haven't yet extended to clamshells, but I'll give them a go.
Look at those cheeky pumpkin faces, from Julie... she generously sent 2 other fabrics, plus she must have sensed how many needles I've been breaking lately😉
Both cards from the ladies are so pretty - thanks again Asta & Julie.
I put the last few stitches in my piece on Friday... it's called Santa's Workshop, & is a pre-printed design from wonderful Aussie designer Natalie Bird (The Birdhouse).
Although they were the most fiddly aspect of this stitchery, I think that the two mice are just the cutest part of the whole piece!
Sorry about the colour, nighttime pics don't always play nice, do they?!
There's a bit of excitement for me this week... I'm off to RETREAT on Friday... woo hoo!
Normally we have a booking for late April, but this time it's a month earlier... just hope the weather will be kind to us & not too hot. I haven't yet decided what to work on, but I'm sure I won't be lacking projects to inspire me. Three days of sewing bliss; can't wait!
What's not to love about a gorgeous bush setting less than 45 minutes from home?!
Thank you to my new Followers for your interest in my blog; I hope you'll enjoy reading my musings.
~ Have a Great Week Ahead ~
