What a day!

Today was a long and busy day but I mostly crossed everything off the To Do List and managed to clean the car as well!
This evening I have been busy stitching
A start to the Cottage Etui -  four sided stitches for the roof
My homework for Embroiderers Guild -  this is a representation of a New Zealand Pohutukawa, the tree that flowers in December.
and several hexagons
I need to have a minimum of this tin full to overflowing so there is long way to go yet.
Next weekend the HD3QBEM and I are going away for a few days to Taupo.   So far in reply to the question "what clothes are you going to take?" my answer is that I haven't thought about it.   Of course not.   I have been too busy planning what stitching and what books I am taking!!   But I have booked in to have a Thermal Mud Wrap and Massage so that should be fun.  My oh my, I am looking forward to a break away.


  1. Your stitching is so pretty - a mud wrap? Never had one, but it sounds sinfully rich!! xxx

  2. Love your fussy-cut rose hexagons!

  3. Sweet stitching..very pretty...
    Hugs and love x

  4. It's good to cross everything off a list - it's also good to anticipate what to take on a trip. I always take far too many craft things to do but I have a dread of not having the one I want to work on when I'm away.

  5. You are so good. You can cross off your things to do and stitch! I finished nothing on my to do list - all because of the sampler bag! Have I told you how much fun I am having with this project? I love it!

  6. Lovely stitching! I hope that you have a wonderful getaway!

  7. Great progress on your projects, hope you have a great weekend away
