On Monday I heard the postie on his bike, didn't rush out as I wasn't expecting anything and he had a couple of beautiful things for me. Dot from These Two Hands Blog had sent me a couple of LHN charts for my birthday and one has the beautiful threads to stitch it with. I can't wait to start them but first I have promised myself to finish Julia Flynn. Thank you Dot for your lovely present.
I can't help but share this card that my DS and DIL got me - it made it laugh all day. He looks just like my little Duc except for the hair of course.....LOL. I will put it where I can see it when I stitch to put a smile on my face.
Hasn't he got the sweetest face (the snowman I mean) - when I was stitching him I had the eyes done and then the scarf outline around his face and he looked like a mummy - I stitched hard so he face would appear as he was freaking me out a little with his stare.
I was hoping to finish off an ornament today - it is 3/4 finished and I am doing the beads around the edges for the first time - I am happy with how it is turning out. I put it down when I got to the hanger yesterday and still haven't picked it up yet today.
I spent most of the morning cleaning the bathroom - Yuck why is this such a horrid job - that and cleaning the oven must be the top 2 of dislikes on most women's cleaning list. I also made a slice called Lemon Delicious. It was really strange as I cooked the base and let it cool and then poured the lemon on top - took it out of the oven and the thought ran through my mind that it doesn't look like the picture. Now it is a little cooler it appears that the lemon has gone to the bottom and the base to the top. As long as it tastes good I guess.
Well I had better finish this off as I have to go and pick up DH from work.
Till next time keep all your needles threaded and stitches crossed. God Bless
