Another weekend, time seems to go by so quickly lately... nothing to do with my age , I don't think !!
So the end of another busy week and I seem to have packed in a lot to this one... and managed a bit of stitching.. see last couple of blogs for the saga will not repeat here, but just to say toes are doing great and can now get one pair of shoes on that were always a little on the large size for me.
Stitching ... have managed some of the bullion knots flowers on the Punto Antico work. After I tracked down some of the thread, Thank you Ribbon Rose for the prompt attention and posting to me.
On Friday I recieved this lovely parcel from Sandy she had 3 lovely give aways on her blog and I signed up and won one of them... I was so thrilled, and here are my items
Two lovely patterns ... a needle case and a bag that you use the "Shrinking Stuff" on... I have never tried this so now have no excuse. A lovely Moda Park Avenue pack in soft muted colour just right for the hexagon quilt that is in progress...a nailfile that is covered in pictures of thread reels so neat, and finally a Pigma pen so so useful. Thank you so much Sandy. Don't you just love the Postie when he calls.
Many years ago in Europe people used to have "At Home" where they woud let every one know they were at home on a certain day and would love for you to call and take tea.... So I decided to have one here in New Zealand where it is called " Afternoon Tea"
so I am at home on Sunday 1st Aug. 2.30pm on wards if you are around please drop by and say Hi... all are welcome.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
