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!

It's only when I look at the age of my children that I start to think of myself as getting old!!

Congratulations to eldest son for yesterday. A special date on which to be born.

Thanks for visiting and the nice comments. There should be a question mark at the end of Finding life hard? I meant it to suggest that if you're finding life hard you should read my blog and see the stupid things I do and then you won't think you're so stupid any more!

You could get a caravan in Gower: much better!

Well done on the weight loss. I ate less than our visitors this weekend but still too much. I do love food.

Oh, Nell is a sweetheart!

Daughter (who is 14 weeks pregnant) has an allotment, a very large allotment - and they're struggling to keep the weeds down but are harvesting the goodies: the broad beans and strawberries, spinach, and something else she tsaid.
