Some of my bloggy friends know that my boys have been away on an adventure for the past two weeks. Hubby and son headed off to the mainland to visit the Gem and Mineral Show in Bathurst, they also drove to Broken Hill and almost made it as far "Corner Country" (where the New South Wales, Queensland and South Australian state borders meet). They returned home Friday night, just in time to see Kate and William kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Wasn't the wedding beautiful, they make such a lovely couple.
So while my boys were away I made the most of my "ME" time and enjoyed plenty of time stitching. Here's some of the things I have to show you
Block one of Butterfly Garden, ready for embroidery
I'm using layer cakes of Strawberry Fields for this, it's so soft and pretty.
I've completed the Leanne Beasely needlecase from The Quilted Crow's Gathering
(Fee and I plan on having one Monday a month to dedicate to hexie stitching, I'll call it "Fee and Me" time!!)
I helped Helen with some or her preparations for her trip to Salt Lake City, I'm afraid I'm heavier than her luggage so I couldn't squeeze into her suitcases, one day I'm going to go with her!! If you're going to the trade show in Salt Lake City be sure to pop by her stand "Pattern Press" and check out all the wonderful aussie patterns she has.
The last two weeks flew by really quickly and I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but that doesn't matter, I don't need to put that kind of pressure on myself.
Anyway I still have this afternnon to myself and then back to my regular routine tomorrow.
Cheers and Happy Stitching
