Framed.

Hello,

Welcome to a new week.

I had the chance to pick up my cross stitch from the framers last Friday. I am extremely pleased with how it has turned out. Though I do wish it was a bit easier to take a photo of it. I have just spent about half an hour finding a spot where there are no reflections or light shining onto it. Mission accomplished. I haven't any other sewing to report. Last week David came home for a few days so time was taken up with him which is a good thing. So if I didn't reply to your email this is why. After all 19 year old males love using Mum and Dad's computer.

Weather.
Weather conditions over the weekend were "windy" and "dusty". I am just glad that the wind has died down and we have a reasonably cool day. My prayers and thoughts go to those who lost there homes in the Roleystone and Kelmscott fires which started over the weekend and continue to burn. More crews from here are expected to go down and help out this afternoon. This fire was started by someone using a angle grinder. Something that didn't need to happen,especially with the strong winds around over the weekend.

Apologies
This morning I received some emails to join in with Fanbox. I obviously pressed the wrong button when I was trying to get out. So if you received something from them from my email address please delete it. Thanks.

Now I have decided to have a break from blogging for about a week. I won't be joining in Tuesday's Treasures or Colourful Friday. I want to use this time to catch up on some sewing. We are blessed with some cooler weather which makes it more conducive to sewing.I will be checking in on blogs and seeing what everyone is up to though.

Catch you all next week.

Bev, I miss Makes me Happy Mondays! A little bit of sunshine has gone from the start of the week. Mind you, I guess you can do without that extra bit of sunshine!!
Stay cool and enjoy your week!

It's a good idea to have a break.... enjoy the stitching... I think the Fanbox thing is spam - I had a few and apparently others have got from me and I didn't send.... read you next week...

Hé Bev..somethimes "live"comes between all plans and one needs a little bit of "off"time to complete some things don`t you think?....and some sewing does`nt goes that quick that one can post about it without others getting bored of seeing the pictures of the same project...you take your time and catch your breath..
I just love your cross-stich..its beautiful made and framed..
I have deleted the email from Fanbox too...
Thanks for the lovely comment...inspires me to go on with the blocks and make a wallhanging from it..you enjoy your time out and take care...greetings Francien.
