Another update

Over the last week I've been getting back into my scrapbooking again as I've been motivated to scrapbook my honeymoon photos and my sister Lori inspired me after seeing her scrapbooking. She also went on a European holiday lately and has got stuck straight into her photos, so I decided to start mine too.
But I've also been stitching of course and I've made a little bit more progress on my little elephant, not as much as I would have liked but a little bit at least. I just love the colours of the elephants, so cute!
My Mum and Dad came over on Monday night for dinner as Dad wanted to show Adrian how to start patching up the nursery walls for our babies room and my Mum being my Mum bought along roast pumpkin soup as she "didn't want me working too hard making dinner" she is so sweet. So we decided on making cheese scones to go with our soup and they turned out to be so beautiful, I am glad we decided to do that. She also had another suprise for me, she bought me the book 'the friday night knitting club' by Kate Jacobs which I've been wanting for ages but could never find anywhere. Mum ordered it for me and bought it over as a gift, so I've been enjoying reading it every night before I go to sleep. Even though it's about knitting I can really relate it to cross stitching which is fun, and being in a stitching group of girls. I am lucky to have such a wonderful Mum and Dad.

I am catching up with two of my girlfriends on Monday night for a twilight stitch meeting at my house since I am missing another stitch meet this month, and I am looking forward to it. It is so nice to sit back and chat and stitch. We did it last summer and it was such a nice night. This time we just wont have the daylight savings to keep us stitching in longer light.
This Sunday I have my sister's engagement party but I am hoping to get in some stitching time in the evening. It's about time, my weekends have been a bit crazy lately.
I also got a call at work today saying my feather fairy is ready to be picked up from the framers, can't wait to see her!

Happy Stitching xx
