My latest finish


I wanted to do something that was more spring like and so I stitched Midsummer Night Designs 'And she gardened' I have stitched 1/1 on evenweave and finished it as a flatfold I'm really pleased with the way this has turned out.

5 more days and we will be flying to Lanzarote - I can't wait and we are both so looking forward to this holiday, winter has seemed to last forever and we keep getting cold and 'bugs' so a bit of sun will do us both the power of good we feel.
Tash is being left in the very capable hands of mum and dad who are having a holiday at our house, which is great.

I have finished the finishing on Vonnas tin and will be posting it on Monday to her so watch out for the postman Vonna.
Nothing much else to tell really, my cold is starting to come out so I'm hot and sticky all the time and tonight we have friends coming round for supper - I've decided to make curry and that way it might clear my sinuses LOL!!

Some-one asked me which designer DT was - sorry I have forgotten who it was that asked - its Drawn Thread!!
