New, new, new

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.

The Sampler looks lovely. I hope you had a lovely Easter.
Super new pins, I have a few that are just for show as they are delicate.
Wondering what your new start is ... will have to await another update pic lol.

Lovely stamps, I am growing my hoard of die cutters, which have now overtaken the stamps.
