This week I received a lovely gift in the mail from Steph. It's a gorgeous cross stitch book with lots of sampler patterns in it. Thank you so much Steph! Steph doesn't cross stitch, but she's creative and amazing with lots of other crafts.
I don't know what posessed me, but I picked up a very old WIP and made progress on it this week. It is The Drawn Thread's 'Lily of the Valley' (started in 2005). It's a small sampler, but some of the specialty stitches were a bit difficult and it ended up in the too hard basket. Five years later I'm biting the bullet and am just going to finish it anyway I can.
My little niece Phoebe surprised me on Thursday. She crawled over to me and stood herself up (she loves my necklace and always makes a beeline for it), and after a little while I realised she wasn't touching me at all and was standing there all on her own!! She will be a year old next month. Time flies!
Have a great weekend!
