Firstly a new start – I know I have lots of unfinished projects which I really should be looking to finish but....! Now that I have finally had my eyes tested and got some prescription reading glasses I can see clearly again in the evenings to stitch so I am going to rotate my new starts (yes starts) alongside outstanding projects. This new start is from an old Cross Stitch Gold magazine, I’m not going to show you a picture of the completed design just yet I'll do some more and when it resembles something that you may recognise I'll have a little giveaway for guessing the subject matter.
My next new item is this lovely set of pins which I couldn’t resist when I saw them on The Primitive Hare’s blog recently. I ordered the sheep set along with the pumpkin set and a set with birds nests and eggs – trust me they are so cute and so sweet in real life. They will be strictly for ornamental use as I would hate to break any of them if I used them on my stitching projects.
And finally some new stamps arrived through my letter box today. I love Tim Holtz stamps but sometimes the sentiments on his sets aren’t quite what I’m looking for to use on everyday cards. As I was browsing the web for something else I came across this set of Simple Sayings which will be just perfect for my cards.
The weather continues to be sunny this week – great for the children who are on Easter break at the moment.
