This past weekend was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend and I’m pleased to say I got loads done… although I can’t show you the pictures as they are presents for friends for Xmas who look at my blog and I don’t want to give it all away.

I started on Thursday with one present and then on Friday I had a total change of mind on one of the presents and changed it, I got it complete and just need to make it up even with frogging a part of it 4 four times as I didn’t like the colour ! lol.

The second one I started is a lot more straight forward.

In between this stitching I had the mad notion of tidying out the presses in the kitchen and giving it a super clean…mmm should have re thought that one..then if that wasn’t madness enough I then decided my stitching corner needed tidying up and the furniture in the sitting room needed a changing about…you know I really think I should think these mad notions through more before acting on them rofl 😀

I had a review of my stitching to do list for the Xmas and have adjusted it to what is essential I get done and the rest of the presents will be something home baked, this means the presents will still be homemade just some of them not stitched or knitted but I suppose that’s good to as it will reflect all my interests lol. Now while I’m stitching I shall mull over some recipes that may be suitable for gift giving …..

This Friday Lucie is coming to visit for the weekend. She arrives on Friday and doesn’t have to fly back to the UK until the Tues, and if that’s not exciting enough Tricia is coming up to see us on the Saturday so we have a day of chatting and catching up with stitching, tea and cakes planned….oh bliss….. can you tell I’m excited to see my two best friends again ??
I’ve a few other ideas planned to do with Lucie and I’ll take some pictures and show you all next week.

Happy stitching,

    I think that all this talk about the stacks of work you've been doing but can't show is a bit much! Not sure I believe any of it, want proof! AND while we on the subject of proof, I also don't believe that you live in a place as pretty as me!!Sounds like you've been piling up the work with all your tidying too, if you still have some steam left, how about popping across the water to help a struggling welsh girl out? We only live 30 mins drive from Fishguard.Enjoy seeing your friends, how lovely to have a big catch up…..have a lovely week!
