When we arrive home our lovely friend from Australia will be here staying so it will be an exciting
arrival home as well....
This morning I have been going through my hand dyed shaker threads and also looking on the website at the colours I need to pre order to pick up when I am there. We go to Quilted Threads and buy them but because I go for larger amounts it helps both myself and Becky if I select before I go and they are just there for me to pay and pick up. When I then get back to the Inn we stay at I lay them all out and have a good old look and feel ... its like the best treasure hunt of colour and I enjoy myself thoroughly....
For now though I have to come down to earth and prepare for this
weekend of fun and a vintage fair along with getting on with my
stitchery and not get too distracted by my butterfly tummy!
I finished the words on the quilt pieces and the Christmas sampler and now I have embarked on another piece. I have to make a trip to the photographer and then on to the framer next week but I would like to get another piece finished. I need to settle down. No more coffee for me today I am already hyper as it is ... grin!
I have had a look through some bits to add to my list for the weekend in the Cotswolds so that is now sorted. From such a difficult start to 2017 I feel it will end on a high. Mum is settled and well taken care of. I have started to sleep again soundly knowing this and we have so much to look forward to.
What started as such a bad year for me and my family has smoothed its self out and now we can go away. Last year we could not go because of it all but now, well things are remarkably settled.
Who would like a mouse mat with homespun stitchworks on it ? I have several to give away so if you leave your name on here and say why you might like one I have three to give away so all the names will go into a vintage china bowl.....
I will let the three lucky winners know next week on Thursday so you have nearly a week to enter.
I will be reporting on the fair for you and the blog will be going out on Tuesday next week after I have collated all the photos for you.
Sorting out a basket to take to carry any little treasures that I might find tomorrow at this gorgeous
event, it is one of my absolute favourites and if it can help it I will never miss this yearly event. Winston the dog is always at the door to greet everyone and he is almost the star of the show he gets so much attention and of course he takes it all in his stride ...
My thoughts are turning to an Autumn state of mind not only because of going to see New England and New Hampshire in the Fall but because it has a slight feel in the air here about it. So I am starting a Autumnal sampler today and I am really going to enjoy that.
Well that is it for today and sorry its a little later than normal but it has been an exciting start to the day.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you back here on Monday morning.
Happy Stitching! XX
