Living the Wild Life

Good morning everyone! The weather is still drizzly and dull here in Winchester, I wish I could stay in all day and do more stitching. Bit of a shame that I've got a shift at work later, but duty calls :)
But I did get a nice lot of stitching time in last night. It was Comic Relief night on BBC1, which is a big charity phone-in event for those who don't know. It's a series of short films and funny sketches, all in aid of the Comic Relief charity. I bought my Red Nose and made a donation! The programme on the night is on for over seven hours, but I only watched the first part. This is the stitching nest I made for myself :) Because this is what all students do on a Friday night right? :P


There was a whole basket of stitching goodies all vying for my attention! Lottie got a few more stitches added, but the main thing I was working on was a little Easter card for my nan. She doesn't even own a computer so I can show you a progress shot for that one :)


I don't think it will be too long at all before this one is all stitched up and in a card mount. 
The keen eyed amongst you might have spied an extra project lurking in the back of the basket there. That's for my upcoming Blogaversary, something that I plan on celebrating this year. Stay tuned!



There may have been a few other goodies for my night in with my stitching, mainly that little box of chocs that I got in the reduced section for only 99p! ($1.50) It was a real treat to spend a good amount of time stitching and indulging. I do spend most of the week (and the majority of the weekend!) rushing around here, there and everywhere. It was a simple joy to take some time out for me :)

Hope you all had a stitch-filled Friday night too, have a lovely weekend.

I wish I had a nice basket full of stitching (and chocolate!) goodies.

The card is going to look very cute, I think. :)
