Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. It is hard to believe that a year went by that fast. We had a quiet-ish day and then took the family out
for a meal at The White Swan in Greytown. Oh my, it was delicious!!

I'll start this post with this gorgeous mattress pincushion which I won on Andrea's blog. It arrived from the UK in four days (posted on the 20th and arrived on the 24th), how about that? It is beautiful and is now on display in my craft room. Thank you again Andrea!

Here's a little progress on my Moira Blackburn Sampler. Not a great deal, but some progress nonetheless.

Last year I signed up for a year of Just Nan humbugs. The Winter one arrived recently, it is gorgeous. I can't wait to get Hootzi and this one stitched up. I think they'll look lovely all displayed together at the end of the year. You cannot see it in the photo, but the fabric has a very pretty sparkle to it.

Finally, I have at last unpacked my craft boxes from the house move. Part of the delay was because there is not a lot of storage in our new home. So on Valentine's Day my DH and I went out and he bought me this lovely tallboy for my craft room. It was a sort of 'Valentine Day-wedding anniversary-really need some storage' kind of present :-) He's pretty good to me, I think I'll keep him on. lol

Well the next two weeks are pretty big for me work-wise. The project I have been working on for nearly 3 years is going live. It is definitely anxiety-inducing and stressful, so I am looking forward to post-go-live when things settle down a bit. I have been doing some overtime, so I may have a little splurge and order some of the many lovely new Nashville releases in the coming weeks. There are lots of lovely Just Nan, Plum Street Samplers, Blackbird Designs and Bent Creek releases I have my greedy eyes on.

Hope you all have a great week!

A little progress to share

I haven't been stitching much lately, but I do have progress since my last stitching update.

Not much chitter chatter here. Still loving our new home. STILL haven't unpacked my craft boxes (lol). Weather is a little crazy - 30 degrees Celsius plus on Saturday, and about 13 degrees on Sunday - talk about erratic.

Have a great week!
