Updates and New Makes.

Afternoon all from a chilly but sunny Ireland.

This week we are slowly recovering from my brothers wedding. It was a fantastic day out and everything went smoothly and to plan and everyone who attended had a wonderful time.

He has gone on honeymoon this week and I’m going to use this week to hopefully finish off his sampler, now that my cold is gone and I have the energy to stitch.

This is the progress so far on it. I have a tiny bit more on the brides back and then its onto her dress, so I suppose I’m just over half way.

The other thing I’ve been up to is making a scissor holder. Vonna over at The Twisted Stitcher made a fab scissor holder and I liked it so much I had to try and replicate it. This is my version of Vonnas wonderful piece.

I have some more scissors to put into it and it now sits by my stitching chair and is extremely useful.

I have made further changes to the blog and filled in the tabs so you’ll find out more now about the different challenges I’ve planned for next year and all recipes I post are under baking delights. I’ve decided on my final 15 projects for the Crazy Challenge and pictures of these are listed under its tab.

Thank you all for your lovely feedback that you gave me and I hope you are all enjoying the extra posts and new content, I know I’m enjoying blogging even more now lol.

Happy stitching,

    Oh Ruth, I was going to email you but couldn't see an address, just to say that I hope all your family are already on the road to full recovery from this bug and that somewhere in it all you get a chance for some let-up, time to do the things you enjoy when you have so much to do…and that of course you escape this lurgy yourself, let your kids be generous and sharing but not with their bugs! Have a brilliant Friday and weekend!
