 Until recently I didn't realise how important crafty blog land was for me. Without a tablet to pick up and check out all your lovely blogs I have felt quite disconnected from the stitching world. Fortunately, I have been able to access our main computer to catch up but it is not as often as I would like. I have not been stitching much over the past couple of weeks as I had a fall while staying at my youngest daughter's for a few days and have had some nasty internal bruising which made it difficult for me to do much. However, I have completed Munchkin's stitchery which I intend to frame or staple to a canvas.

I have made a set of 6 coasters to post to my daughter. They are perfect for her décor and also ideal for Halloween. I had intended to make a matching table runner but that is on hold for now.
A while ago I saw this book , picked it up, and then put it back again deciding I would buy it another time. Not long after that I saw a review on a TV program raving about this very book. The author is another Aussie who is incredibly humble and doubtful about any success but  he is a very talented writer. Needless to say I went out and bought the book. Honestly, it kept me wanting to read more at the end of every chapter.
I am half way through another book so I am quite pleased with myself getting back to reading more like I used to.
The weather here is beautiful and sunny one day, rainy and dull the next. Nothing like variety to keep us guessing what wear and when to hang the clothes on the line.
I hope you are all well .
Angel Blessings. 


  1. Sorry to hear about your fall. Hope you are on the mend. Love the Halloween coasters. Must keep a look out for that book.

  2. Your stitchery is beautiful Ondrea, as are the Halloween coasters. Will keep an eye out for that book too. I hope your bruising is much better now. The weather is nuts isn't it...looks like we are heading for hot weather early next week.

  3. Beautiful stitching Ondrea and with so many blogs going by the wayside I value my blogging friends. I am so sorry to hear of your accident and wish you a speedy recovery. Thank you for the book recommendation xx



  Brrrr it is cold! I suppose it is not as cold as many other places and we have had a fairly good winter so far but my body does not enjoy ...
