"Welcome" cross stitch finished and a surprise visitor.

Hello,

On Wednesday I put the last back stitch into the "Welcome" cross stitch.


This was worked on 14 count Aida.
Stitch count 163W X 66H
DMC Threads
Kit purchased from Good Sammy's for $3.00.

Next time we go to Midland I will drop this off to be framed. It will look fantastic amongst the other cross stitch on our family room wall.

I had a SURPRISE visitor on Tuesday morning, I only caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of my eye as I was walking the kitchen scraps to the chooks.


Look at the Bobtail Goanna sunning himself in the garden. Looks like he has been eating lots since he has come out for the warmer months. I can tell you my heart beat very fast for a few seconds, then I realised it was just a goanna not one of those other awful things. Bonnie doesn't like these either. On Thursday they had one walk in with a customer through the automatic doors. He ended up in one of the back offices tangled in the computer cords. One of the "farm" girls had to pick him up and put him out the back garden.

Talking on the phone with Lucy today, she said she hasn't been mentioned here on my blog  for a while so a big Hello to Lucy. Enjoy your weekend Lucy.

Happy days.

Hi Bev, I do love your cross stitch and it will look lovely framed. Mr. Bobtail looks like he's had a right old feed. It's the season for them to start appearing again. Look out on the roads. Regards, Anita.

Beautiful cross stitch. I don't know what I'd do if I came across your little visitor. Had to laugh at your description of the one who got rid of the critter tangled in the computer cords.

Fun stitchery! That frame really finishes it off nicely.

Gasp! That's quite the visitor to your garden. Would have scared me at first too. Luckily, it wasn't the "other" kind ;)
