A Nice Day Off

Today I was suppose to be working the afternoon shift at the hospital, but as all was quiet there, I was lucky enough to be offered annual leave which I quickly said yes to.  Once hubby found out he thought we should do something so we went for a drive up the coast to Tokomaru Bay and had a walk along the old wharf there.

It was a lovely drive and I have not been up that way for a while now so enjoyed it.  Best of all was that the day was a gorgeous winters day

FNSI Update

Last night I joined in with the girls for FNSI.  I worked on a stitchery for a swap I am in so can not show you much.  I have used Cottage Country Threads Golden Elm to stitch this. 

Now all I have left is to sew it up and post off next week.
This week I also have received some more things in the mail.
First some lovely books from The Book Depository.  I enjoyed Lynette Andersons Stitch It For Christmas book so had to get the Autumn and Spring ones too along with a Jelly Roll book by Carolyn Forster

Then I have been reading only good things about Missouri Star Quilt Company so had to have a look and they have great daily specials I discovered, so obviously placed an order and I am very pleased with the service.
The Weeds Jelly Roll I got as the daily special and I had to order a Downton Abbey Jelly Roll too with the other fabric pictured.

What Did I Do For FNWF?

On Friday evening I joined in with FNWF and I finally got something accomplished.

I traced and stitched up this stitchery, which when completed is going to someone very late. 

The photos are not that great as using a camera I am not use to, but I used the thread is Jacaranda from Cottage Country Threads

I went and got some material to stitch it up so keep an eye out for the finished product.

End of May & NewFO Challenge

Well I have been bad and not started anything on my list yet.  My crafting mojo has for the last couple of months gone walkabout, however it is coming back.

Not quite a quilting project, but my next passion which is cross stitch and on my list is Celtic Christmas.  All supplies have now been purchased and ready to go on a frame.

I also have purchased some more material to start a couple of quilts I have seen in a couple of books and they are on their way in the mail.
