Here is the first showing of Julia Flynn (Dear Diary) © Little House Needlework. Phyllis from the 123 MB gifted it to me for Christmas and when I have finished stitching it - it has already found a new home. I love how quick this is working up.
I am nearly at the 50% mark all ready. Once this is done I am going to stitch the additional pattern that comes with it and will probably make it up into a 2 sides hanging.
This morning DH and I went for a swim in the ocean - the water was a littl cool but once you dived under the waves it was heavenly and so refreshing. I should do this much more than I do as we can walk there in under 5 minutes. There was gorgeous bleached white seaweed which I collected and brought home. It is very fragile though and will have to store it in a little box.
I have had a ring from DD and DS for my birthday. It is so wonderful to see their faces on Skype. DD was ready to go to bed as it was after 10pm in London. DS in Sydney looked really trashed from his bicycle accident. He is one lucky guy - he has cuts to his face where his helmet dug in and bruising on his neck from the strap. He is still in a lot of pain and taking lots of pain killers. Wish I was closer to give him a gentle hug but I know his beautiful wife is taking good care of him.
DH and DS 2 are doing the grocery shopping for me today. Mum and Dad are coming to see me this afternoon, Kim my wonderful friend is coming down Sundary to take me out to lunch I thank God for surrounding me with loving family and friends. I am one very lucky woman.
