I am thrilled!!

Hi all, hope you all had a wonderful Easter time and shared it with family and friends like us..
But since then....I am always looking at that 'evil' shop.. in fact I look at it every day incase I find a bargain chart.. you know like a Cut Thro' for 99p.. never found one yet at that price, but look  what I did find.

Two 2010 The World of Cross Stitching magazines.
 
And in the one is that lovely design that June (Butterfly Wings ) stitched
It is so pretty and the individual designs could be used for cards.
I wouldn't  make a cushion but it will suit my other designs that are similar.
 
This super one is by Gail Bussi; isn't it just darling?
I absolutely love it and am going to start it right away.


Although I am stitching Fairies at the bottom of our Garden, I feel I need a change!

 
Not a very good pic but I think you can see it has progressed.
My cat 'Welcome' only needs the whiskers and face back stitch doing but it can wait!
I am tra la la-ing.. I am so happy!
And I lost another 1 1/2 pounds this week.. so I am doubly happy!
And it is a wonderful sunshiny day!

I need to buy some cross stitch fabric, I have a pattern for a Christmas design which would look nice as a cushion. Well done on the weight loss. Your fairies stitching is looking great.
