We celebrated the ending of one year and the beginning of a new decade with friends. I bought 2 bouquet of flowers, almost identical. One for my friend, one for me!
I love he colours of these flowers - lime green, sunset orange, and snowy whites.
After the holidays I slowly got back to stitching. Here's my progress on My Betrothed Sampler. I love the girl with the bird!
Getting back into a new routine took longer than I'd expected. I've been busy re-organizing stuff which means things get messier before they get tidier! Which also means it's harder to find things at the moment! (Oh, and that also applies to my little grey cells too!)
In the process of buying boxes at IKEA for storing floss, etc. I found this -
A new rug! Originally when we saw it we'd bought it for the dining room. When we got it home DH said "I think that's too much reds and pinks - you take it for your room". "My room" is where I stitch and store my 'crafty' stuff. I just love this rug as it makes the room even cozier!
*sigh* I really wish I had more clever things to say but this is about it! I do have a question though - I have seen some lovely red/cream types of fabrics from the French General. Do you know a good place to buy this fabric online? I am thinking just fat quarters for making little pincushions and such.
Thank you for all the lovely comments from my last post. I couldn't have done all that stitching without you guys - the encouragement and cheering are wonderful of course, and I also like getting all the inspirations from your blogs too! So, here's to another great stitching year all around!
