Speed Stitching

Phew! Things have got crazy again!
I'm now at home. I was suppose to be moving into a summer let at Winchester but after the terrible organisation and poor support, there was no way I was staying put. But now that I've got my job, it does mean that I will be commuting to Winchester every so often. That's not bad at all, it's good to be home with my family :)

I just realised that I haven't shared what was in my latest Birthday Stitch Surprise parcel. It was Emma's turn and I know Emma likes two things in particular. Pokemon and purple. So here's what I sent . . .

A length of purple dotty ribbon, a skien of purple Anchor thread, some purple fabric, a selection of Pokemon cards and an Eevee (Pokemon) figurine. I'm pleased to say Emma was delighted with her whole package. It feels so good to give doesn't it? :)
I know Terri is next on my list, but what with everything changing and new lately, I'm afraid it might be a bit of a wait. Please bear with me Terri, I promise to get a parcel out to you as soon as possible!

And in other news, I've still been stitching up a storm on my BAP. I've completed Lesli's favourite bit, the lovely duck pond, stitched in gorgeous blue tones. 

I've got the other side of the garden to complete, along with the stable, but I think I'm going to focus on the roof  next and get the house totally finished.

I started another new project recently. It's LHN's Schoolgirl Lessons. It's the perfect size to take outside to enjoy the glorious weather we've been having lately.
I hope it's lovely where ever you are :)
Best wishes,

Bekca your stitching is so beautiful! I really like the design and I'm enjoying watching your progress.

So glad the weather is nice where you are too. We had record high heat and now it's unusually cool. Oh well, the sun is still shining so I can't complain.

Enjoy your weekend!
