Time for ...

an update!

Sorry if you thought I'd left the planet, just had an unintended break from blogging. A New Year often heralds a new start so here it is...


Firstly the return of my Quaker Friendship RR, isn't it just beautiful. I chose a hand dyed linen and Gloriana Silk "Autumn Arbor", the effect is really stunning. Thanks to Jinger, Deb, Sharyn, Marti and Lynda for sharing this stitching adventure with me.
Belated seasonal wishes to all, I received these very smart Emma Bridgewater mugs for Christmas, they make for a very festive cuppa!


and lastly, deep and crisp and even it is, making car deforsting a chore, but window viewing a delight!

Happy New Year
Clare

I love Emma Bridgewater. Sadly my boys are the owners of our EB mugs, so I am forced to have coffee with dumper trucks and tractors! But they do feel so good in the hand.

Your Quaker RR looks so beautiful. I particularly love the thread colours. Wonderful.
I wish you and your family a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year Clare!
I have to admit that I DID think you had left the planet but it's nice to see you blogging again.
Your Quaker RR is magnificent - love the colours use in it.
Love those mugs too. Dare I say I have never heard of Emma Bridgewater? I think I have been missing out.

Oh, Clare, Isn't it fun to get our RR Samplers back?! I thought yours was beautiful. Everyone having chosen a different color linen and thread was such fun. Your views are so delightful to see. Burrrrrrr! Hugs, Deb
