but as long as you stay inside - you can stay warm! This weekend saw Father-in-law come out of hospital :) Still quite fragile, but coming along nicely - so thanks for all your kind thoughts this last week. We also had Fathers Day here in Australia - so I cooked lunch and trotted off to spend the afternoon with the Fossils.
Last Thursday I was given a little cross-stitch beading kit as a very early birthday present. It was a delight to make up - just got to get a frame for it now. Mill Hill do the kits and are just lovely to say the least. The stitching area is about 5" x 5" so it is not too big a project to tackle. I was very happy with the finished item as you can see! Last Friday was Snobs and Slobs day again (or the bi-weekly de-briefing session as I sometimes call it) One of the Snobs found this lovely apron in an op-shop recently. We all agreed that perhaps someone did not realise the age of the apron - it is embroidered with the Royal Crown and GR - which means it was probably embroidered during the reign of George who was crowned in 1937!! So we now look forward to the Snobs and Slobs day at said Snobs house and be served upon by a Royal looking tea lady!!! LOL This is the current state of my sewing (???) table. Things have been piling up a bit saying that I have been here and there of late. So the goal for the week is to have the items finished (they are cross stitches that need framing) hung on the walls and ready for the next bout of work to be done. You may of seen this book that Quilty Gal bought recently...well.....it was the Puffins that did it! I just had to have one, so mine arrived on Wednesday, so have been looking and looking and reading (mainly in the littlest room in the house) to see what project I will do first.....got to be the Puffins really!!!
