A little visitor

Today I managed to have some me time after doing the weekly drudgery. I wanted to get some more christmas stitcheries ready to make as gifts. I have so many things I want to do at the moment my mind is spinning. I just need to make a list I think and organise myself a little so that I don't get overwhelmed.

The postie brought me a lovely visitor this afternoon. Fiona has sent her Stitching around the block piece to me and the stitching is just beautiful. There are some great fabrics included too, I won't show them all so they will be a surprise for the next in line.  I can't wait for Monday for the next stage to be posted on Helen's blog. I think there are hexies involved judging by the sneak peak! You know I'll love that. With Tuesday's cup day holiday I should get a good start on it.
Fiona also included some 'inspirational' chocolate and a lovely scissor holder with the message 'this crazy lady is for you...' It was a little windy here this afternoon and the little crazy lady and I did share the same hair do when I came back in the house. She is gorgeous and it will be a lot easier to find my scissors now- thanks Fiona you are very thoughtful!


cheers for now.....

Hi Marina,
You made me really smile with your comment about the dolly's hair. I'm itching to get started on the next round too, but won't be able to start as I'm not receiving the middle until next Wed. I think with the weather forecast for the weekend I'll be getting some sewing done too.

Enjoy your little scissor keeper she sure is a cutie.
