I’ve got to leave for work shortly so here’s a quick catchup…

Merry Winter - Homespun Elegance

Whilst we were away we heard that Carol received the winter package I made up for her. Here’s Homespun Elegance’s Merry Winter Stitched on 40ct Summer Khaki linen with Belle Soie as charted. I finished it as a mattress pincushion (my first ever!).

We got back on Monday night and on Tuesday I heard from Marika that my Christmas Ornament had made it all the way to Finland at last. Marika is a big fan of Country Cottage and Little House Needleworks and I guessed she probably had already got most of their ornaments stitched for herself or given to her, so I took a punt she’d like this piece by Hillside Samplings, which to me is very like the Little House style.

Here’s a picture of the whole package. Somehow I forgot to do the same with Carol’s package.

I’ve uploaded the rest of the photo’s of our trip to Flickr. Here’s a link to the set. I hope you will have a look. Tasmania is a lovely State. We enjoyed our very short trip there.

Well I better get off to work. The bus leaves very shortly!
