just letting you know.....

Melody at the House on the Hill is having a giveaway to celebrate her 1 year blogaversary! Melody is a lovely, talented crafter and I am in awe of her fussy cut hexagons. They are just amazing.
Pop over and say hello and you can enter her giveaway.
While I am here I may as well give you a sneak peak of something I am making. Can't reveal too much someone may be peaking!
the design is stitched on Handkerchief Linen. It wasn't too bad but because of the coarser grain it wasn't as easy to get really neat satin stitch. That's all I can show for now.
Today I am off to steward at an Obedience Trial for a work colleague. Last year it poured rain and I stood in the rain for the whole day. Today the sun is shining but it is quite windy. Still will need a beany I am afraid. No stitching will get done but it will be fun to spend a 'dog' filled day and catch up with doggy acquaintances.
I used to be very involved in obedience and used to even trial my boys. I just don't seem to have the enthusiasm I used to have to commit to it again. I just enjoy spending time with my four leggers less formally and in a way they probably enjoy more.
ps don't forget to pop over to Melody's to wish her a happy blogaversary!
Have a great Day!
cheers
Marina

Such a close close up and your stitching looks perfect. It's a long time since I did any doggy things. Now I just smile as I watch the puppies playing next door.
