Update time...

I know it has been a good while since I updated my blog, but I am still here and thank you to all who follow me and my goings on.

I haven't been totally idle, and here are some updates.....


My first ornament stitch from the JCS 2008 issue, of course it is Shepherds Bush. A change from the set they had designed but nevertheless, just as nice.


And Merry Christmas, a gift I got for my birthday last year. I just so enjoyed stitching this piece, and I do have a passion for the Quaker patterns. When I took this photo it was not quite finished, but I can safely say it is now.


This is a Christmas decoration..... watch this space to see how it is finished.


I have also started another stocking, for my Anna. Soon I will have enough stitched stockings for the girls to one set at their homes and one at mine! I still love stitching these treasures.


And I have been a very lucky girl receiving a beautiful parcel from Alison who went to the Shepherds Bush Retreat back at the end of September. These are the things that she picked out for me.

And I got these things too......


And look at these little cuties that came in the parcel too. I am very blessed to have such a lovely friend, and although we have never met, Alison is one of the best. Thank you so much Alison.

So what am I working on now - other than the stocking, I have some sewing projects on the go, and some of those pics will have to wait till after Christmas. I am stitching some wings for a little sheep to make a sheep angel, and I hope to start Scatter Christmas for myself.

And last, but certainly not least, I was awarded a little something from Elisa....



So thank you to all who follow my blog, you are lovely bunch and I too so enjoy so many blogs. How the internet has changed our lives and introduced us to so many other people with passions such as ours.

Oh Kath...you are such a sweetie. I'm so happy that you liked everything I got for you. I didn't tell you that we almost missed out....I had plans to visit SB after the retreat but found out the week before that they were closed the day I had intended to visit & buy for you. So I had to quickly change my plans!!

Hey kath - lovely to see you post. You're in my thoughts often and I'm glad to see you're still stitching. I saw your pic over on Katrina's blog - you are looking good.

An email to catch up with you/me is long overdue, but I am just going crazy! I will try to get it out to you over the holiday weekend here.

Great to 'see' you, Kath. Nice to see you are still stitching. I am afraid stitching is a distant memory for me now, lol.

I love the SB ornament! And your quaker Christmas sampler.

Nice to see you post!
