A wonderful surprise/a wonderful hubby!

I mentioned that I needed some new stitching needles and he said 'well I have to go to town give me a list and I'll see what I can do' wow! Ok. So I gave him a list. Needles, Aida and needle threader.

He walks back in when he got home and asks 'how much do you love me?' Um why?

This was why!

I'm 1 happy stitching wifey!!
Now to put it to use :)

Happy Stitching!

Another ornament finish!

I put the last stitches into my little fairy ornament tonight :) that makes 4 little ornaments so far and now I need to buy some more 14 count Aida to start more.

She's with the others in Enjoy cross stitches Christmas 2012 issue. 

Happy Stitching!

Christmas progress and Heatwaves

I've started another little decoration. An angel this time 

Happy stitching everyone as Australia swelters through 1 of our big heat waves this week. Airconditioning and stitching in order I think :)

I'm back! And I have a finish!

Well life yet again has been crazy and my family has needed all of my attention for a while. I put down the needle for about 1 1/2 months, and now that everything is settling down I can relax again :)

With 4 days of getting my stitchy bug back I've finished a little Christmas decoration from Enjoy cross stitch's Christmas issue from last year

He's so cute and all ready to be made into a decoration.

Now my needle remembers what to do I should be around a little more again.

Happy Stitching :)

Remember this...?

little guy?

well shortly after my last post about him, I actually thought I had lost him. So while rummaging through some things on Thursday I was overjoyed to find him and his entire kit :) I had to give him some time in the spotlight, so here he is today..

Here's to a great stitching weekend for us all, and finding lost stitchy stuff!

Happy stitching!

Comfy Cozy Pic

Some commented on my last post asking what Comfy Cozy will look like 1 day, so I thought I would post the picture again and hope they see it :)

I'm sorry I haven't been able to answer your comments personally. I've been having trouble with my email account that they are sent to, so I may have to change it. I love every comment though, and appreciate every one of my 99 of my followers :)

Is it still Monday? lol

I meant to update on Monday but of course life gets in the way. Not much stitching has happened over the last week and 1/2, but this is what I dusted off last week,

Comfy Cozy came out of the cupboard for the first time in a very long time, and now looks like...
so just a little change :)

And then on the weekend, I changed over and put a few stitches into 'Wish'

Hoping to get some more stitching done on my QS in the next few days :)

Happy Stitching!

Stitching Along

After stitching a little more on Love is Brilliant, we all got a virus, so my stitchy bug went into hiding for a few weeks. Now Ive decided to tempt him out with a simple, quick stitch, as all of my WIPs are full of confetti!

This little stitch is fun

It is out of Cross Stitcher Issue 225 August 2012 .
