Gosh is it a week

since my last posting, where does time go??? There isn't enough hours in the days sometimes I reckon.

Thankyou everyone for your good wishes for my speedy recovery, I have gone back to work now and feel much better, just a lingering cough, but that is of no matter.
Well I haven't been stitching an awful lot really, I have managed to get a good start on mums NRR and I have also nearly finished this weeks target for Bunnies.

My other project this week has been Shepherds Bush Columbine Sampler, its been on my to do pile forever and as I was in the SB mood I thought I would stitch it, I'm about a third of the way through it, its not a huge project and I have actually done something I have never done before and thats Drawn Thread work on it.
It was fun to do. The other side matches but I haven't done that yet and I have only made a small start on the border, hopefully I'll get it done by the end of the weekend and then I want to do this months Ornie SAL that I'm doing with Romy, but I haven't picked yet which I would like to do. Tomorrow I will have a picture of the Mailart exchange I have done as I intend to send it then, or maybe I should wait with that pic as I know Sandra comes and reads my blog sometimes>

That is so delicate and pretty, Su. Love your fob as well! :)

It must be wonderful to do a RR with one's own Mum!

You are making great progress on Bunnies in the Garden - I wish I would have had time to stitch this with the group!

Drawn thread work is so much fun. It can be a pain when you don't count properly, but what a thrill when it works! You did a wonderful job! :D
