Karen came down too and we had a right girly get together, raided her boxes of books and did some stitching too. I made my trifle for dessert on Saturday night and WT brought home a friend so that he didn't feel too outnumbered. I think he acquitted himself rather well to be honest lol.
I am dog sitting for friends for the next two weeks although I have popped back home today to pick up a few things, attend an interview and check the mail. Angel is a Tibetan Terrier, 13 years old, and a wee sweetheart.
I have been working on my Crazy 15 Challenge and here is an update on my Honey Bees project. I'm quite enoying this one now and it is working up fairly quickly thanks to the many half cross stitches there are.
I also finished a very long overdue bookmark which has now made it to its partner. I made her a card too but true to form I forgot to take a photo before I sent it!
It is blowing a hooley out there right now and I am so not looking forward to having to go out again but I need to get back to let Angel out. I have got several projects with me so expect an update when my dog sitting stint is over. I promise I will have something to show for it!
Here is a shot of the lovely threads and fabric (and cards) I received from my Calendar Girls group on Friendly Stitchers. The girls thoroughly spoiled me as usual.
Thank you all for reading and for your continued encouraging comments.
Over and out for now.
