Rebecca Margaret Alice

21 years ago today we welcomed Rebecca into the world.

She has brought us untold joy, sleepless nights, stress, laughter, a unique view of the world, boyfriends, black t shirts, cats, a dislike of washing up, and a whole life time of love.

Thank you baby girl!

Progress ... Simple Little sampler

My progress so far... this is a very relaxing stitch. I am also using Petites for the first time.

A PS to the roof repairs that took place on Wednesday - they blew off again Thursday night - what did I say......................I'll leave that to your imaginations.

Thanks for all your lovely comments - they truly enhance my stitching and blogging experience.

Fair and Square exchange

My postman brought this wonderful exchange this morning. I had had a rather fraught morning at work, and this made my day. My exchange partner Tracy had included a pin cushion, hanging, space dyed threads and charms as well as stitching this beautiful peacock.

Thank you Tracy - it is delightful, your thouhgtfulness is much apriciated.

12 Houses - The Drawn Thread

12 Houses Sampler
The Drawn Thread
Stitched on recommended fabric using DMC threads

I finished this today. I have stitched it for an old friend of mine who will be moving house later this month. It was an enjoyable stitch, apart from the chain stitch on the right hand side, which I found difficult to make even! Off to the framers now.

Thank you for looking.
