I have a week off work and I am making the most of my time! I have a list of things to do like you wouldn't believe!!!Unfortunately though, Ive found new things to add to that list and it seems to be growing, instead of shrinking!!!
I have started Wendy's Christmas stitch along... "Lets Start Christmas SAL" (you can see all about it HERE)
I've finished the first block and it was so much fun... Can't wait for the next one!
I have also finished Natalie Birds :"Sunshiny Day Bag". I love this pattern! Love the stitchery! Very happy with the way it turned out. I have changed the position of the handles as it wasn't sitting quite right so far apart. This also made them a bit longer and easier to put over my shoulder.
I also added a pocket inside and a key ring holder. I'm thrilled to bits with the fabrics as I love wearing black, white and red. This is going to go with so many things!
This is the back. I bought the fabrics when I was on my last retreat at Warwick and actually completed the stitchery on retreat as well. It's a great feeling putting it all together and having a finish.
My "Gossip in the Garden" quilt is coming along nicely. This months blocks include two blocks of hexies. I've finished them and just have to cut them to shape now (I don't really want to cut into them!!!)
As you may know, my eldest son went to New Zealand last January for a 4 week holiday. He fell in love with the place and has been holidaying and working there ever since. (Sad mum here!!!) Anyway.... He's going to get a visit next week and get a little dose of home to cure his home sickness!
My youngest is going over to stay with him for a week and spend some time with him. I would give anything to see these two at the airport when he gets off the plane!!! So jealous and wish I could be going over there too for that week.... but so happy and thrilled for the pair of them.
We had a bit of stress up until yesterday as Jack's passport hadn't arrived and we only had one (yes one!!!) day left before he goes! Nothing like leaving everything to the last minute!!! So pleased to see him pick his passport up!
Okay.... that's it for me at the moment...
I have some serious crossing off of my "To Do" list....
And some time with my boy before he leaves...
Have a great day!
