Finally, a little enthusiasm has returned. I am stitching Jennifer's ( www.elefantz.com) recent free design. 

I haven't been reading as much either but I have finished this book which was a Christmas gift. It is Miriam's 2nd book, ( the 1st was also a gift to me), and the title is so apt!! She is a shocker! 

It is another warm day today...at last! Summer is nearly officially over yet it has barely begun here. I shall not complain after hearing about W.A' s 49.5 degrees yesterday. I suspect we shall have a hot Easter but who knows what mother nature has planned. 

Keep well, keep smiling and enjoy some crafty fun.

Oh dear! The only project I have done the past few weeks is the Stone Henge crosstitch bookmark but at least I have finished it. 

I could only do a little bit at a time because it was quite a strain on my eyes and I was going crosseyed . There are some minor mistakes but I would never have finished it if I was to worry too much and it is not a gift for anyone....just myself.

I enjoyed the 4th book in the series I have been reading and have the last one, book 5, on the shelf ready to read after some other books. 

I have been very slowly tidying up my sewing room and I am still deciding which UFO quilt to do next . Meanwhile, I have an unfinished decades old crosstitch to pick up again.

                                         Happy stitching.


  The past week or so I have cleaned out 4 drawers, 3 cubicles and my drawers of colour coded scaps for applique. A basket full of patterns ...
