Here we are..... the end of another weekend! Father in law is still in hospital - not sure how much longer at this stage - depends which Doc you speak to :)
Anyway, I have managed to get a couple of things finished ready for piccies!!
The first item is a Christmas cross stitch that I started last year! Finally finished and ready to be framed in time for this Christmas.The second item is another cross stitch that I started earlier this year. It is done with one colour of the gold variegated thread and was real easy to do. Not sure what the finished product will be yet though. Either make centre piece for the table or frame it??? The last item is a little wedding dress that is knitted and is only 5" long (for a 1/12th scale doll) Only got a few beads to add and make the veil and the gloves next!
Today the sun is shining but the wind is still cold. Till later, happy blogging xx

Hmmmm...what have I been up to????

Well...not a lot of anything really! Other than working a little, staying warm and going to the hospital. The weather has been soooo cold here lately - one would of thought one was in the Arctic Circle this week. Altho, last Thursday we did hit over 20oC for the day, but alas it only lasted one day.
Unfortunately father-in-law has taken ill, the powers that be at first thought it was the dreaded Swine Flu, but turns out he has a multitude of things going on.... RSV, mild heart attack, blocked arteries and the list goes on....but they are doing their best to get him sorted out and back on his feet.
On a happier note, some of you might remember that I have been showing some ladies to do some stitchery and quilting this year? Well, this is one of the finished items - the lady is the picture is very happy with her finished product - it was her first stitch and quilt that she has done! So well done Jess!!! She barely got it finished and has started her next wait to see what she does next:)

Its a kinda magic!!!!!

Well - what a weekend it has been! Firstly we had the South Australian Miniature Enthusiasts annual show. Very good one it was. Hopefully some bloggers managed to get out and about and pay a visit. For those of you who didn't, there is always next year. Our theme this year was a French Chateau - quite magnificent. Here are a couple of pics of some of the rooms.
There was amongst many of the lovely and wonderful items on display - a little shoe shop by Shirley from Western Australia. Tonight Quilty Gal, her youngest daughter and myself went to see Queen - Its a kind of Magic show. Absolutely fabulous!! The whole group did a justice to the original Queen - so if you get a chance to see them - take it!!! The group sat down for autographs and pics at the end of the show - you don't get that very often these days. Thanks guys for a great night! (me and Craig Pescos alias Freddie Mercury:)
