Hi everyone! I’ve been expecting a package in the mail and knew I’d want to be sharing pics of what was inside next time I blogged but, wouldn’t you know it, this package decided to take its time. More on that in a moment.
First off, let me share my progress on CHS Her Sampler. This is such a lovely piece to stitch. Some of it I think are the greens in it, green is one my favourite colours. Of course, alphabet addict that I am, I love the alphabet and then there’s the acorns which are something else that I like. Actually reading back over those last few sentences its little wonder that I love this piece so much as it’s ticking a lot of boxes in my list of likes!!!!
Back to the package. Monday I was thinking it would arrive – no luck. Tuesday I’m thinking it’s bound to here – no luck. Wednesday? Definitely this would be the day – nope! Now I’m really starting to wonder where it’s got to as I knew it had been mailed on April 15th and, while it was coming airmail usually that takes a week, maybe 10 days at most. So, imagine some major postman stalking going on!!! Finally, Thursday it made it!!! What was I waiting for so anxiously? Well, it was a package from Deb with my finished BBD stocking and PS ornament inside. As you can see below, Deb has done her usual fantastic job on both. First off the BBD stocking which I've been ooohing and aaahing over since I unwrapped it because I could never in a million years have made it look as good as this if I'd tried to finish it!
Then this one which I'm also thrilled with ......
Other than stitching goings-on DS#2 headed back to university last weekend so the house is back to being quiet again (and my grocery shopping bill is much reduced!). It’s a long weekend here, Monday is a holiday, but no plans made as yet for doing anything special. I think it could depend on the weather which isn’t looking that promising! Hope everyone has a good weekend, almost May?!?!?! Where is this year going?
Until next time…..
