After 5 very long days on the road we are home, sweet home. The best part of being home was the hugs from our kids and grandkids. They were worth every single mile.
When I got home there were a couple of lovely things waiting for me. My BFF Beatrice I saw right away and she gave me this wonderful project bag that she made. Don't you love the fabric.
She also gifted me with this lighthouse chart of Point Loma from her trip to San Diego. She knows me well (smile).
I worked away on my Fairies in the Garden in the car and in the days since. I have all the top half stitched and have started on the backstitching. I want to do the back stitch on the top part before I get to the bottom or I will be doing that part of a veeerrrryyyy long time.
Yesterday, I stitched on Snowflake Serenade for my stitchalong with Cheryl. I did not have to rip out any stitches. That is a miracle. Believe me, with this piece, it hasn't happened too often for me!
Remember my Jardin Prive SAL and the missing 931. Well, when I got home I went right to my threads here and would you believe no 931 there either! I had a couple of very partial skeins but nothing that I would consider using for such a large piece. I am sure it is a conspiracy!! Oh well, it will have to be put aside until I can resolve this issue. ( I have received an email that some 931 is on it's way from Las Vegas!)
I have had several requests for information on that piece. It is called Sampler des Bouquets and comes in Part 1, 2 and 3 and can be purchased as a pdf. from www.jardineprive.com . Go ahead - order it and SAL along with me!!!
I bought myself a cover for my Kindle just before I left Arizona and well, I bought the wrong one.
It is too big for my Kindle. Perhaps it will fit yours. If you are interested in this cover (it is purple leather) and it will fit I would be happy to send it off to you at no charge. Just let me know.
That's it for this week one and all. Our youngest grandson is here for the week and we are enjoying the snuggles and cuddles he dishes out.
Until next time I hope you can be cuddled by someone you love too - be it human or animal!!!
