I'm back!

I hadn't picked up a needle, checked other stitchers blogs or participated in any forums since around about the time I made my last post here.

Life and other stuff just got in the way so I packed up my stash and hoped that one day soon I would have the time and inclination to stitch again.

The stitching bug is back! In the last week I've worked on Middy, kitted up Chatelaines Taj Mahal and started a Spot of Spring by the Drawn Thread.

I'm on holiday from work for a week starting today so hopefully I'll have something to show soon.

A couple of finishes

I've finally gotten around to taking pics of my recent finishes. Unfortunately a couple of the pics were quite useless (hey, I'm a stitcher not a photographer) so I don't have as much to show you as I'd have liked.

I spotted a couple of pictures of 8 sided pillows (isn't the French name for them biscornu?) on someone elses blog and I'm quite intruiged. I might have to have a go at one of those next. Oh, and biscornu sounds much nicer than 8 sided pillow :)

My scarf that I finished last week and a small kit from Victoria Sampler (Can't rememer whic one, sorry)

Nothing really...

I haven't done much in the way of crafty type things lately hence the lack of updates.

I've started stitching a needleroll and I'm knitting the longest scarf in the world...stay tuned for pics of both :)

Look what I got!

I received this in the mail from Sylvie this morning. It's beautiful, thanks so much my friend :)

After what I've been through this week, it was much appreciated and really cheered me up.

Prayers needed

I don't usually write about much personal stuff in my blogs, but tonight is different.

My mother in law is seriously ill - if you have a God, would you include her in your prayers tonight please?

Peace to you all.

First Xmas Ornie

This is the first Christmas Ornie I've finished this year. It's for an exchange, but I know there is no chance of my partner seeing it so I'm safe to show you.

The picture isn't very good - perhaps I'll try and get a better one in daylight.
