Keeping Busy

I have been very blessed again by some gorgeous friends,one beautiful friend sent this pattern and kit to make a lovely hexie sewing pouch and another beautiful friend sent me a pair of gorgeous sewing ruler earrings,a big thankyou to you both.

I managed to get this stitchery finished and i love it in the blue.

I have had a few of these little patterns for years so i decided to get them stitched up.

They are both designed by Anni Downs and are so cute and stitch up in no time.

Hope your day is a good one.

In the mag he was put on a xmas card.

I decided to make him into a xmas decoration.

It was hard gathering up the aida cloth but i got there in the end,i hope to get a few more cross stitch decorations finished before xmas.

Hope your day is a good one.

I finished this lovely design by Roslie Dekker which i have had for 5 years,i think i will frame this one and hang it in my bedroom.

I have also finished this stitchery that i have had for awhile too,its nice getting some old projects part way finished anyway,i think when i can use the sewing machine again that i will have a heap of stitcheries to make up into projects,lol.

I have also restarted my socks again as i wasnt happy with the band with the first start.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

I am so Blessed

My hubby bought in a parcel he collected from the PO for me and this box was sent from America by my lovely buddy Lyn (Lyn was to be my Roomie on our trip to the USA)
And inside were these elegant gold and white pumpkins arent they gorgeous,i love them,thankyou Lynnie xx

 And Lyn had also grabbed me a goodie bag from the Missouri Star  Quilt company,how blessed i am to have such thoughful friends.

I also received this cute stitchery in the mail as well by another special friend,a huge thankyou to all my friends for thinking of me,it means alot to know that my friends are thinking of me.

I found this cross stitch kit that was given to me a couple of years ago and decided to have a go at it.

I am very pleased with how it turned out and i might try a few other cross stitch projects to make a bit of a change from what i normally do.

Hope your day is a good one, and that you all have a wonderful weekend .

I asked Hubby if he would take some pics in what we call our orchard,we have a few fruit trees at the back of our house.

We decided last year to plant lavender bushes around the fruit trees to attract the bees.

The lavender is in full bloom and looks lovely against the green grass and they have also attacted heaps of bees,so hopefully fruit laden trees this year.

 I have been so spoilt with more lovely gifts and cards and phone calls from my lovely caring friends,thankyou so much,it really does put a smile on your face when the letter box has such lovely goodies.

I have also started on a Rosalie Dekker project whish i have had for quite a few years,lol,in fact i got it at my first LGS retreat it must be 5 years ago,lol.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.
