Hello again, This week I've been busy with my Woodland Winter Cross Stitch picture... working on the bottom left hand corner which is mainly the snowy ground part, I'm actually enjoying stitching this section as there are so many different blues and whites shading which make it interesting.. can't wait to see it completed with perhaps a gold frame?

Hello there, Went to sleep for a few months there didn't I?! Not really, been very busy behind the scenes with moving house, my Etsy shop makings and creations and... in March I went to the annual NEC Sewing for Pleasure show which was brilliant :) I was very good and didn't buy too much. Bought some lovely bright vintage yellow Tilda fabric which is very hard to come by, some linen look sewing notions fabric and some lovely slate grey linen to make a lovely tunic which my mum kindly made up for me :). The keys in the photo are gorgeous, I think I'll incorporate them with some of the Milford mole makes.

Well this past weekend has been really exciting! Last week was my daughter's birthday - 6th :). We took her to Birmingham last weekend to the Christmas markets and to treat her. It was great, she chose her present really carefully and decided upon Disney's Frozen princess castle which was really good for the money - we had seen another one that was well over a hundred pounds and quite frankly, it wasn't great. It didn't contain any of the Frozen characters and was just an empty shell! The Christmas market was amazing! All the sights and smells - the mulled wine smelt lovely :) There were some really unusual present ideas, jewellery, ornaments, food... so we walked round there and then visited Waterstones.. Wow that was a brill shop, it looked like it used to be an old church so was amazing when you first walked in and saw the impressive spiral staircase! It had a fantastic choice of books too, ha ha!
