I had my stitchy meet on Sunday which was fun, in the morning I baked my first banana bread with caramel icing. It smelt so fresh and beautiful, the smells coming from the kitchen, I hope the girls liked it, I sure did.
We sat around stitching and playing with Melody's (the girl who hosted) little 9 month old daughter Lily. She is ultra cute!It was a perfect day for stitching, it was cold and rainy outside, and we were having cups of tea and yummy snacks.
As I am still waiting on my metallic thread to arrive which should be here this week, I didn't get to work on feather fairy. Instead I worked on the little piece I took overseas with me but hardly touched. It is a cute pattern by Margaret Sherry called 'cats and cuddles'. I am stitching it on 14 count oatmeal aida. It is a picture of 4 different cats sitting in coffee cups. They are very cute and colourful, and instead of stitching the cats all in a row I've decided to stitch them individually and put each one into a plastic coaster which I can display on our coffee table or dining table, wherever they end up I guess. I bought the coasters a few years ago at a craft show and they have always been stored away. This is what I've stitched so far...
I will continue stitching on this piece tonight, but it will take a back seat when my thread arrives as I really just want to finish my fairy now, she's so close to being completed!!
Happy Stitching xx
