Well as life will have it all great holidays must come to an end and when we drove up our driveway yesterday we were amazed to see we had driven 4,999 kms on the dot. It was a wonderful time away and I loved catching up with friends along the way. I thought I would show you the stitching I did whilst I was away just so you know I was not completely idle.
When I met my lovely blogging friend Shez from Enjoying Life she was telling me how much she enjoyed using variegated threads and we did a little research and I bought a Country Gardens Thread called "Mistletoe" (very apt for me). Thanks Shez. I wanted to try something a little different for a mini I have designed for my little table topper stand (6 inch x 12 inch size). I must say I really enjoyed using it and I am pleased with the results. I feel as if for certain projects I would definitely use it again.. but I am not ashamed to admit I still love my DMC 816, anyway here is a sneaky.
Speaking of fabrics, here is my little collection of reds/creams I picked up along the way on our travels...
Well I must away. Chaos is in residence at my house with unpacking everywhere as well as new grocery supplies and clean washing to put away....gee I think I need a holiday lol!
It seems so strange that just 2 weeks ago we were a wee bit chilly and here I am as I type this in shorts and tee-shirt and it is 32 degrees. Anyway thanks Country Victoria and NSW for your hospitality and beautiful scenery. We loved every bit of it...even the frozen bits which you tempered with delightful gardens.
