Friday Fill In!




I've managed to get a little stitching done in the past few days. This is my June SAL piece that Elaine chose from Sanman. I just love the cute birdie. It is a beautiful sunny day here so I am hoping to spend the rest of the afternoon in the garden finishing this piece off. I need to stitch something for an exchange and a birthday gift but I am so itching to start something new for myself. I do have some pieces already kitted up in my box but there not shouting out to me anymore, I need a stash rummaging fix..lol.


Would anyone like a little package, sorry just teasing. This little bundle of goodies will be at long last winging there way over to Ireland to the lovely Siobhan who won my giveaway last month. I get such enjoyment putting together a stitchy surprise. Hopefully the package won;t take too long to get there and I can then reveal the contents.








On Sunday we visited out local garden supplier and bought lots of plants to fill up our pots. I;m hoping a lot of them will flower in the next few weeks and fingers crossed we get good weather so Heather can have some nice prom pictures taken in the garden. We are off to the dress shop on Monday again for her final dress fitting. Sadly I didn;t get a chance to take a sneaky picture at last weeks fitting. We also went for a trial run to the hairdressers on Saturday. At the moment it looks like we are going for lots of curls with her hair pinned up but you know teenagers she may change her mind on the day.

I hope everyone has a lovely week-end. Hugs!

I certainly do know those teenagers. My daughter had to pick three dresses for her class graduation and couldn't make up her mind until the last minute. The flowers look wonderful, and I'm sure Siobhan is going to enjoy all those goodies!
