Some progress and some stash

Thanks for your comments on whether or not to stitch some initials on the Quaker House Sampler.

I've been busy working on Summer Cottage Garden by CCN, and I'm not too far from finishing . I might even get it finished up tonight while OH is out watching the New Zealand All Blacks vs Ireland rugby match at the Cake Tin.

I can't tell you how glad I am NOT to be going. It's cold and wet, and it's going to get worse. So I'm going to start watching my Charles Dickens Bleak House DVD set, do some stitching and eat chocolate buttons!

I was hoping my stash from Down Sunshine Lane might arrive in time for the weekend, but thought the chance was slim since I only ordered it last week. But I was pleasantly surprised to see a parcel sitting in the letterbox when I arrived home from work last night. I've used DSL twice now, and have been very impressed with the service. Here's my loot -

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Summer Cottage is very pretty.

I'm with you - stitching, chocolate buttons and a dvd is far more inviting that being out in the cold and wet at a rugger match! I'll be round at 7 if that's ok with you?

Great stash haul from DSL - I got 2 patterns from them which came really quickly.

Have a stitchy weekend
