Some finishes even though I am packing for Oz!





This is a little hanging ornie for my daughter.. I had to use aida14c for this as I have used up my metre of 28c linen! But I wanted to do something for her as she sounded very down when we spoke the other weekend. Work, children and a hubby and a broken dish washer was just too much for her! We have all been there hey??? LOL I have posted it to the school where she works so it will be a surprise for her next week!

And this for my lovely husband Mike!


This is the front of my Valentine Heart for my husband.. it has our initials on it, It is now packed in my suitcasae ready to give him on the 14th as we will be in Melbourne, Australia then.!!
And this is the back:



It doesn't show it at its best lying down as you can't see the little silver heart but I had to photo it rather hurriedly while Mike was in the other room!

Two lovely gifts.

Hope the trip lives up to expectations or even better exceeds them.

2 super finishes, i'm sure Mike will be so thrilled with his surprise and what a great reminder of valentines day in Oz.
Have a good trip.

Chris - thank you so much for the wonderful Prairie Schooler exchange you sent to me!! It arrived on Friday, but I didn't have internet access all weekend so couldn't say thank you or post to the blog, which I will do tonight. Sounds like you are going to have an amazing trip to Australia planned - have a wonderful time, especially away from this grotty UK weather! Hugs, Stephanie
