Here is Mrs Darcy stitched up. I know how I want to finish her (a tuck pillow idea), but I need to find some instructions online and get my sewing machine out!
And here is Frost on the Pumpkins by Just Nan. I didn't like the flopsy linen - it made the stitches different sizes and they didn't lie nicely at all. I need to fix those eyes before I iron it and attach the beads. What I did love about this design was the amazing colours (the photo doesn't do them justice) they are really vibrant.
We had snow here yesterday. That happens only very, very occasionally. Even Wellington (near the sea) had a snow flurry - the first in 14 years.
We decided to heck with the horrible weather and went to the zoo (with the nephew and my sister). While we were there we had sunshine, rain, hail and even some of that snow Wellington hadn't seen in 14 years. The animals still come out in bad weather, so we saw most of them. :-) At one stage we huddled near some kangaroos under a tree while we all avoided the hail. It was a fun and memorable day!
Today is a public holiday, so I am going to do some more stitching and tidy up my basket of threads. I bought some new bobbin boxes so need to get them all back into order to make them easy to find. That should be fun! lol
Have a great week!
P.S. Hi Tanya - yes, I am 100% Kiwi. My Dad was born in England though, so I have a British passport too.
