Quietly we saw in the New Year...DD in Rome preparing to join with her showband to play in the New Years Day parade before she heads off to Montecatini, Florence, Milan & Paris...DS on the NSW North Coast with his girlfriend & her family...and DH & myself at home...he is still fairly housebound. Up until yesterday there was little time to stitch, but hopefully as he improves there will be a little down time for me! Especially as I go back to work on Tuesday...aargh! Some time has been spent playing with Hexagons for my Brigitte Giblin inspired quilt.
Here is a pic of my interpretation. I am happy with it's bright cheeriness... as it is supposed to be a cot quilt I moved away from a gentle repro palette and am having fun putting my own spin on it.
...and this is Brigitte's original quilt.
A short time ago I spotted these beautiful scissors on Siobhan's blog...she does the most exquisite cross stitch...and so I managed to source some...aren't they sweet? Now I just need to finish the cross stitch!
My dear stitching friend, Lea, gave me this lovely bonbon for Christmas...super cute!
And today I have hung my SSCS gift properly. It is the most beautiful stitchery from Nicky & it now hangs where I can see it every day.
May we all have a good 2011. There are many changes afoot here in my home... it will be interesting to see how it all progresses! I have been playing with my blog...not happy with it, but I am fairly techno challenged...will keep on playing!
