After a period of non blogging - not really much stitching - not much time on the internet - I'm slowly in the process of getting back on track.
First of all today arrived the HoE Summer House Exchange piece that Marie W stitched for me. She made a wonderful design and finished it into a foto book. I'm absolutely thrilled and LOVE it.
Thank you very much Marie. I really LOVE it. It's beautifully stitched and finished. A real treasure. :)
The Summer House Exchange piece I created for Shay has arrived at it's new home as well. I stitched "Season of Growth" from Little House Needleworks for Shay and mounted it on a self designed stitching book. It was fun to stitch and I also to create that book for her.
Ohh....and I attended a craft show. Which happened to open on the same day as my father in law underwent a surgery. Wasn't that far from his hospital. That surgery took quite some hours and instead of sitting there and biting nails Michael and I decided to go to the Melbourne Craft Show instead. Great way to pass the time and great way to get your mind thinking about something else. I was a bit taken back by the huge amount of people attending there. I won't go next time on the openings day, that's for sure. Because I don't really like crowds there was a lot that I didn't see in the end. Went there to purchase ONE quilting ruler and ONE more rotary cutter. Thank god I had my husband with me to carry all the stuff I bought. Found a really really good deal and went home with quilting rulers in all sizes, a huge cutting mat (A 1), bought that rotary cutter and couple of other cutters too while I was at it, some thread for Mary Wigham sampler (which I decided of course meanwhile to use different threads....lol), and some other things.
Ohh....did I mention that I'm not a quilter? But that has of course nothing to do with that...lol. These rulers were a great deal after all. And I am a collector at heart - plus I have a craft room. Plus - it took off our minds and that was worth it.
