Okay fingers crossed the slideshow above has worked. As you will see last week-end my son Craig celebrated his 21st Birthday. It was a wonderful week-end full of fun and suprises. We had a party on Saturday night with family and friends and on Sunday we had a celebratory dinner at our favourite restaurant. I am so glad that Craig had such a fun time but oh boy are Mum and Dad exhausted. It has just been non-stop and we get the pleasure of doing it all again when our daughter Heather celebrates her 18th birthday in three weeks time. Not great family planning but I blame the awful winters we get in Scotland...LOL.
I didn;t quite make the deadline to finish my SAL piece for July but as it was quite a small design I was only a few days late. This little seaside lady is another freebie design and if you look closely you will see that I was in such a rush I glued one of my seashells upside down. I can;t believe it is time to stitch August already, this year is just flying in. It has been a real fun SAL though and I am looking forward to see what chart Elaine chooses next.
Over the next year I am doing a personal exchange with Cathy this is the first package that I have sent to her. As usual the little pillow gave me a few headaches putting it together. I had to glue the trim to death to get it too stick, so it;s fall apart date may be soon..lol. Cathy was delighted with it though and thats what matters. I had such fun putting this together and I am looking forward to our next exchange in October.
I am still playing catch-up with everything and in my next post I have some wonderful new stash from my dear friend Erna, beautiful give-away prize I won,gorgeous goodies from Cathy and with any luck a few more stitching finishes. I have started another Christmas ornie and my Lizzie Kate challenge piece. My plans will probably change but I am hoping to sit back relax and stitch this week-end. Why don;t you join me? Hugs!
