I hope my updating this blog so soon isn't too much of a shock for you all! There hasn't been much stitching time this week but I've managed to stitch some more of the centre panel on the Tend thy Sheep box band. As always with one of Merry's projects this is being a joy to stitch.
As I stopped working after I had Rosie, I've tended to save my meagre stash budget so I can do some classes but recently I've had a little splurge. The first photo shows my stash from my trip to Fobbles. It was probably a good thing I was only at the last class that Ellen taught and that some serious shopping had already been done by the other participants before I got there!
I treated myself to Ellen's Within My Heart Sewing Case, Blackbird Designs Honeysuckle Manor Book and the Clara Ellen chart. I've wanted Clara Ellen since it came out as that was my Great Grandmothers name.
The other stash came later, I decided that I could no longer resist the Birds of A Feather Mystery Sampler by With My Needle and Thread and as I've missed reading Sampler and Antique Needle I got a copy of the latest issue to make the postage over the pond worth while.
Before I go we had an early birthday party for Christopher yesterday and Rosie helped me decorate the cake in her signature style LOL!
The party was at my parents house in Filey as my sister was up with my nephew. In the afternoon the weather was glorious so we went to the beach as you can see.
