Picture updates...

Thank goodness for sons and their laptops!
No 1 son has compressed and edited some photos for me as today was a wonderful day as far as deliveries goes. Big hugs to the postie!
I received my long awaited Christmas swap parcel all the way from Hungary, and yes she did remember to address the package properly unlike someone else we know. Thankyou Teca very much for your beautiful gift.
I received a lovely hanging decoration with the most beautiful cross stitching and the cutest buttons. Have a look at the gorgeous silver coloured cookie cutter. It is just gorgeous. I think these will be handy for my Christmas sticheries.

The lovely postie also brought me my Stitching round the block top! How exciting. I couldn't wait to open it.
Humungous hugs and thanks to Lorraine, Fiona and Carol for their contributions to my top and hopping on board with me. You have done such wonderful work and I love it!
 
I put a few spiders and webs in the parts I had to embroider. This is one that Fiona added to her portion of my top. He also came with an apology as he is apparently under the influence of the fruit of the vine, of which Fiona seems to enjoy quite a bit of lately. lol
I can't wait for the inspiration to strike so I can finish it. There was some lovely blue fabric that came home with the top, not sure which of you lovely ladies included that, but I want to use that in finishing the top.
I wonder what the other tops are becoming? Carol has a cushion in mind but I can't decide......
One by one they are finding their way home.
Thanks again girlies I have enjoyed this so much!!
cheers

ps got a secret sewing project that isn't on my list finished! Can't show a pic just yet...

Fabulous pictures, gorgeous buttons, wonderful presents.
It's great to see your Stitching Around the Block. It's beautiful. My group decided to extend our time-frame so we are just exchanging round 3 now. I was planning to make mine into a cushion but I might change my mind. Don't know if I want naughty Litle dogs cuddling up on something so lovely.
