Wow I can't believe that if you put your mind and hands to something you can actually get it done. Yes I am talking about a cross stitch which I started last week and finished last night. There wasn't any border on the pattern but I am planning to add a simple one around the sampler. I will have to audition threads over the next couple of days.

I noticed I still had the docket in amongst the linen, threads and pattern. I purchased these from a lovely shop in North Perth back on 25.6.2011 which I think has now closed . I can't believe how time has flown since then. I can still remember the lady helping me. This was stitched on 28 count linen in Platinum. There is a mix of DMC threads and Gentle Art and Simply Shaker threads.
Last week was a pretty good week for me and a very happy one.

Tuesday I received a lovely parcel in the post from Cherilyn. I was her winner in a recent blog hop and the prize was this wonderful Better Homes and Garden Quilting Magazine and a jelly roll. Please take sometime to check out Cherilyn's lovely blog called A Farm Wife's Journal.
Friday Ian was back at the Domestic Airport with Lucy to pick up Bonnie. When they walked in Bonnie said "You have got half your family home" Of course it is a different matter today with Bon of for this week in another direction.
Life is never still here, which is a good thing.
Hope you have a Happy Monday and a wonderful week ahead.
