About Time!

I'm still happy dancing! I'm so pleased to reveal my finish of Country Cottage Designs' Gingerbread Cottage. Ta-dah!


This was stitched on 28ct Vintage Beige Lugana using DMC colours. I left out the last white border because I didn't like it. I'm chuffed to have finally finished this design, now I can get to work on all the other pieces calling my name.

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my last post. It's Easter holidays coming up and I'm hoping to have a finishing day where I finally finish up all my stitched pieces. I've got quite a pile now. We didn't have a barbecue this weekend, but we did eat wonderful enchiladas outside and it was bliss. I am very lucky that I get on with Lawrie's family so well.

In other news, I got to catch up with two of my closest friends this past weekend. I hadn't seen Georgie since Christmas and it was lovely catching up. She also passed along a Christmas present she was keeping for me from another one of our friends. I was lucky enough to receive a Smarties penguin (very yummy!) and this gorgeous Cath Kidston pin cushion!


Her name is Henrietta and I cannot wait to do lots of finishing products with her by my side :)

I hope you've all been enjoying the gorgeous spring weather. It would be nice to sit outside and stitch, but I'm too worried about getting my fabric dirty. I think I'll stick to reading outside, then cosy stitching indoors when the temperature drops.
Have a wonderful day,
