I had a lovely Easter mini break but a very busy one at that. Adrian and I caught up with quite a few of our friends and we had a family lunch at my parents house on Sunday and then a family dinner at the night time at Adrian's parents house. So needless to say there was alot of food and wine consumption. Ooh and chocolate easter eggs too, the most important.
I wanted to dedicate a few hours at least to stitching somewhere in the break and Saturday was my day to do that. I stayed at my sisters house on Good Friday night and spent time with my beautiful neice Heidi who is turning 2 years old this Friday and then came back home in the morning when Adrian was heading out the door so I managed to get the house to myself. It was such a beautiful morning I walked Matilda down to the local shops and decided to buy a take away coffee and hire 'the time travellers wife' on dvd which I have wanted to see for awhile now. I bought a few other things I needed too and whilst enjoying my coffee I took Matilda to the park so she could wander around for a bit sniffing and exploring.
I then went home, hung out some washing and then plonked on the couch for a few hours watching my movie and stitching. It was so lovely, I really enjoyed it. After the movie finished I put on some episodes of 'bewitched' and continued stitching. Yes, I love bewitched.
I have managed to make a fair bit of progress on my feather fairy since I last posted, I am getting closer to the end of stitching her feathers.
I would have to say my favourite colours in her feathers are the blues, I think they are so striking.
My friend Gayle visited me on the 29th of March along with her 10 month old baby Caitlyn and she gave me a gorgeous stitched gift. It was a gift for our wedding and I think it is so sweet. The design is called 'home is where our story begins' and is by Lizzie Kate.
I am not sure what I will do with it yet, but I am sure I will get it framed one day.
There are only 10 more sleeps till Adrian and I go on our honeymoon!! We are going to Europe and it is my first trip overseas so I am super excited! Living in Australia is sometimes not so great due to the loooooong flight we will entail (23 hours to be precise) so I am hoping I can stitch on the plane. I will have to check with our airline first but I am planning on taking a small Margaret Sherry design to work on. I would never take a big pattern like my feather fairy because if something happens to it I would cry (most likely), and I will not have the arm room I would like. I am stopping into my favourite LNS on the way home from work on Friday to get some fabric for it so I can get all the thread etc..orgainsed. If they confiscate the needles so be it, at least I gave it a try. I wouldn't even try taking scissors.
Happy stitching xx
