Stitching and Surprise

I thought it might be time for an update on my stitching... Whilst it doesn't look much I have been putting in the time when and where I can... I am determined that this one shall be finished in time for the Tapestry Guild's 'Inspirations' exhibition in Oct. I have been going to their Sit and Stitch sessions on a Saturday - well, I have been twice this month which is a great improvement on 2010 when I went three times for the whole year. I do enjoy the couple of hours I spend with like minded people having a stitch, a coffee and a giggle - not exclusively in that order. They are a bunch of lovely ladies and Bob - our one male member - who stitches beautifully, I might add. I feel so fortunate to have this group just about on my door step so to speak.


This little surprise turned up in my letter box last week... I had been pointed in the direction of this online site last year - http://www.peppertreehousedesigns.com/ - and I had duly visited and registered. Apparently they had a been drawing winners for something which they were a part called the Great Aussie Shop Hop... I was one of the lucky weekly winners and won for myself a needle case pattern. Since I have been talking about making myself a needle case for ages obviously the Universe heard and made it so... Now I just have to make it sew - play on words here :-}...


Alright enough from me...







Until later

Well Possum, your luck appears to be changing for the better - two wins in a matter of weeks! Lovely needlecase kit! I LOVE your bunny design, and it is so good to read that you are enjoying doing this project so much. AS for being late, you're not alone. My Valentines Day biscornu is finally done and will be posted on 1st March!
I am optimistic that your cross stitch project will be finished in time for The Guild exhibition - maybe for the Whittlesea Show as well??
