Tuesday Stitching

Stitching with the Tuesday girls today saw me finally finish this stitchery. 
This is from one of the projects by Libby Richardson that we received at the Stitchers Dream Day Out in Toowoomba. There was a lot of work in this and I was pleased to get it done. 
Sandi and I decided to walk to Helen's house today as we are trying to be good and healthy. It's been a gorgeous day, but it did warm up and the walk back in the afternoon was very, very warm.   Nice views though! 
Helen had a brilliant idea to use our cameo stitchery on the front of a Cottage Garden thread folder instead of a journal cover (the original project). I loved this idea so I decided to do the same.
I've still used the fabrics from the original project but inside is now full of pockets. They're just the right size for the threads. 
I'm really happy with the end result. The folder sits really nicely when full of threads. 
Wow one more finish for September!!! 
I've been chatting to my boy in NZ a few times today. It seems the adventure is heading in a new direction. Tomorrow morning he flies to Melbourne (so close!!!!) then off to New Delhi!!! Maybe for 3 months!!! I'm not surprised! But boy am I missing him! 
Hope you're having a great week.
