Yet another exchange gift
This was the fantastic little zipper purse I received from Laurie in HoE.. with it she sent three skeins of DMC, some cording and dark green edging( don't know what its called) and little note books, all rather nice.. I just loved the purse, how clever she is to sew something like that.
On my own stitching front I shall post pics of what I have managed to do in the week as the 'My Needleworks' SAL is to be posted on monday. I have made an effort with my 'Beatrice' Sal and I am begining to really love stitching it. I took it with me when I went to the Cross stitch group here in Coventry on Wednesday morning which was very nice, it was good to be with like minded women and I shall enjoy going each week. I am tempted to join in a SAL with Blackbirds design group and have odered some charts!! Suddenly I am stitching more than ever.
You might notice I lost 1/2 pound this week which was such a surprise as after our Family Get Together BBQ last saturday when I ate ice cream and drank wine... and then the left overs were very nice on sunday, I was expecting to gain, so I am very pleased with that 1/2 pound!
My eldest son is 42 today... he was born in Bridgend hospital on a monday with the Mamas and the Papas singing 'Monday, Monday' in the back gound at 5:05pm and the date was 06/06/66!!
I am feeling just a bit old!
