About Rep, Ray, Rhodes and Rice...oh and a rollercoaster

Am on a bit of an emotional roller coaster at the moment, my lovely baby sister, has just announced that she is moving...to Cyprus. Even though she is only a few hours away at the moment I don't get to see her enough but at least she is in the same country! Part of me is so excited for her and can't wait to see what she makes of her adventure but part of me is also so sad. I know things move and change and that is part of life, but ever since we lost Mum family just isn't the same. I can't really put my finger on it, define what I mean, but it just isn't.


Enough of the self pity, I am pleased to say that stitching on my something beginning with R cards is finally finished. R is for.......

Rep stitch........
Ray stitch........

Rhodes stitch ........
and Rice stitch.
I had a lot of fun making my Norwich stitch cards back here. That I knew I wanted to try some canvas work again. I had to make 3 of these for the swap, I'm not going to confess how many hours each of these took, lets just say it was one of those 'seemed like a good idea at the time' moments.
I always keep some hand stitching in my bag and try and grab a few minutes stitching time in my lunch break at work which keeps me sane on those stressful days so these have been happily keeping me company for the last week or so.


I am doing a private trade with Andrea for some more of the kitty cards I made here, so these will become my new bag companions, lol! In the meantime I'm off for a few days on a camping trip so I'll see you again when I get back next week :)

R is also for "rainbow coloured"... :-)

Your sister's move must be exciting for her, but you too feel the effects and have "no say" of them. Must be hard.
