Both my books have arrived from Germany
There are loads of projects inside I would love to stitch, I would like a nice Christmas cushion (full size) for my chair, so that's the plan for this year.
Postie brought me a second parcel, these dies were purchased online, last time I was in Hobbycraft another customer told me to check this site out, each week they have a flash sale for just one week. These are perfect for my collection.
I could not resist the farm and zoo animals.
My Amaryllis has two flowers opening, and they are stunning
Loving the shades of pink.
Taken from below,
I knew this was a double flower, makes a change,
I don't grow doubles in the garden, I want the bee's to be able to get to the pollen.
I managed to do loads last night,
The golden design is very quick to stitch up, lots of repeat patterns.
All of the colour choice is mine, I have a couple of other colours to chose, this is one project where I chose the colours as I stitch, makes it a bit interesting for me.
At this point I do not know how the finished piece will look.
The sun is shinning through our office window and we are warm inside, we have walked to the village, I had my hair cut, and now we are home for the rest of the day. This morning was a heavy frost, but still no snow. Later I have a friend popping in.
Yesterday I went for a job interview, should hear early next week if I am lucky, it's in the same building as my daughter Fliss, another military base. Next week I am hoping for another interview.
I was laid off work on Thursday, after just three months, they have changed their plans, and my role was one which finished. I am really cross that a company can play with peoples lives so harshly, they were very nice about it, had they said in the interview they were changing the structure of the company, I would have declined the job offer. Oh well I've been here before.
PS, Simple living can you please send me your address, I will forward the card book to you, I still have the cross stitch sample book if anyone wants it.
