Today...

Well today was supposed to be a good day as it was a day off work, but it certainly didn't start that way - phone calls from work at 7:15am, sleepless night the night before and I woke up with Marks cold - thanks Darling!!

But it did start to improve, I managed to almost finish the finishing on Vonnas tin so I can send it out on Monday, and the sun started to come out a bit and then the postie arrived with a parcel from The Netherlands Barbara was the stitcher sending to me in the SBEBB Spring Quaker exchange (we had to stitch in either green or mauve on either green or mauve) and she sent me a parcel full of goodies - thanks Barbara (I have emailed you privately), the first goodie is this wonderful fob that she has stitched for me, its all done 1/1 isn't it stunning.

On the back of the fob is the year and our initials -its so exquisite.


Also included in the package are the scissors attached to the fob, some overdye fabric and some plain fabric, some threads and a needlework finishing form (I have wanted one of these for sooo long!!

So as you can tell my day has brightened up considerably since 7:15am, now to shake off the cold before we go on holiday next week.

I have also done the finishing on the Midsummer night designs stitching I was doing and I will share that with you over the weekend.
