Cross Stitch loveliness

Blogging might be a bit sporadic from me over the next week. James' parents have come down from Yorkshire to stay with us for a few days so we'll be spending time out and about visiting some local places, eating out and generally having a lovely time :)

In the meantime I'm going to leave you with a quick picture of the lovely cross stitch charts that Kate gifted me recently
The blue notecard was lovely too, I'm thinking that might end up in a little frame on my bedroom wall as it will look lovely in my blue bedroom :)

The Wildflower picture is going to be the next one I work on.  So I need to get busy and get all my threads and fabric together.
I love this part of a project, mostly because I inherited all of my Mum's DMC threads when she passed away so when I have to go rummaging in these boxes it always makes me think of her and the time she used to spend in her chair in the evenings in front of the TV stitching away  ..... happy, special memories.

Gosh, look at all I missed lately. Did you break into that beautiful egg? James is such a sweetie. I hope you had loads of PJ and rest evening and I hope you have a lovely time with the in-laws. It's very special to have your mom's DMC threads, isn't it? I have (long story) Chloe's boyfriend's grandmother's DMC threads. (don't try to keep the story Maybe it's time to finish some of the projects hanging around for the past umpteen years. Maybe I should just send them to you. :) Have a lovely visit with your family. :)
