Delightful present

Shari, my internet friend has so kindly and generously posted me a Lizzie Kate chart, and I have just started to stitch it. I love the design, one of our Bible study group members gave me the quote last year, and I was nicely surprised to see that Lizzie Kate put it in cross stitch. THANK YOU SO MUCH, SHARI!

I look forward to hanging this in my office, what a lovely reminder for life's ups and downs!

Just to show you another little finish for a small Christmas ornament, I know, I'm starting early this year, I am hoping to build up a stock of Christmas stitchings for personalised cards.

It has snowed lightly overnight, and the garden was once more covered in a thin blanket of snow, but we had sunshine, it is almost gone by now. However, I did take a couple of pictures earlier this morning.

Have a good weekend, wrap up warm,



My firsts in 2010

An idea I've picked up from Shari, planning her first cross stitch in the new year.

Well, here are my firsts!

My first purchase, for our tête-à-tête on a Sunday afternoon:

My first knitting project, a shawl/scarf:

My first cross stitch, his Valentine card:

I have so many other projects for this year, cannot wait, but it is nice to see we have started the year productively.

Love and all the best wishes to you all, a wonderful week ahead,


Sweetie pie

At Christmas time, loving to be with everybody - or the centre of attention!



In the New Year

Hello everyone,

I am wishing you all a blessed New Year, a bit late, it has been a bit hectic, but here I am with my first creation of the year: mini madeleines, savoury with pesto sauce. Delicious to start a meal with a bit of salad, or on their own as appetizers.

Unfortunately I have not sewn anything yet, I am planning a project but still not sure which one yet.

Best wishes to you all,
