Amongst lots of quality family time, and finishing the top of this beauty, I managed to have a rather busy but productive month.
My first project in the latest stitch-a-long was this thread catcher from Natalie Bird's Red Home book. I enjoyed using some of my fat flat's from spotlight (I do have rather a large number of them lying around).
Red Home - by Natalie Bird
Next, some more progress on this Faye Whittaker - All our yesterday's cross stitch. I got this pattern from the World of Cross Stitching magazine. Its so relaxing to do this in front of 'Downton Abbey'. I'm trying to catch up before this new season starts.
Towards the end of the month, hubby and I found ourselves for two nights, kid free, in paradise (tropical FNQ - Cairns, one of my favourite parts of the world). OK, we did arrive in a tropical depression from Cyclone Oswald and some minor flooding but it didn't stop us having a lovely time celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.
The perks of a hubby that travels alot is there is generally some frequent flyer points and hotel points to go somewhere. We were lucky.
This was the view from our room.
And this was 10yrs ago this month. (it was 44 degress when this photo was taken, you wouldn't know it!).
Happy Stitching, Susie
