A Horrible Time

The last few weeks have been horrible. Our darling Sidney passed away very suddenly at just 6 years old. We are devastated and miss him so much. Here are some of my favourite pictures. He has left a big hole in our hearts.

The Needlewoman, Some Cards and a Bargain

Finished "The Needlewoman" - this was a very quick stitch. Although the chart was quite poor quality, I love the design from Holbein Embroideries and I substituted the Aida for 28 count Zweigart Jazzlyn in dusky pink which I think suits the dark brown and metallic thread very well.

Also a few cards which I stitch between larger projects, so I always have something ready to send when a birthday crops up.

While out shopping today I went into a charity/thrift shop and found this lovely Candamar Sunflower kit for just 2.69 GB pounds so I just had to buy it. Don't you just love to find a bargain.?
