New Year Stitching

Well I seem to be a bit late with the Merry Christmas and Happy New year, but better late than never! I spend 10 days over Christmas and New Year in Sydney with some friends which was really nice and relaxing. I even managed to do quite a bit of stitching then too!






We even had a very friendly kookaburra that comes to visit and you can get so close to him and just about feed him by hand.

I went back to work on the 6th January, but I will have a longer break in April while my boss is away, and I will be kitty sitting for my parents when they go away. Its a great excuse to sit around and stitch all day and catch up on all the TV programmes I miss!

Anyway here is my progress:

Multiplication Sampler-
Before

After

It's nearly there!

I think last time I forgot to post a photo of my finish of the Beatrix Potter Alphabet, so here it is-




Lastly I was reading a fabulous blog called My French Country Home by Sharon Santoni, full of all things French. Her latest blog had a picture of city biking (the stylish way of course!) anyway I wish I could look as good as some of these Parisians when riding my bike! She's wearing heels!!!!



Happy stitching everyone and thanks for stopping by

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful trip - what a fun way to spend the holidays. Love the black dress!! The Kookaburra looks rather fierce, not sure if it's the beak or his mask. Great stitching progress. Love the bunnies in the Beatrix Potter Sampler. Heck, I wished I looked that chic period, never mind being active too!
