Acryllic book

I had fun putting this book together with photos I took on a day out to Marazion in Cornwall. I was born in Marazion and spent many happy hours playing on the beach and walking over to St Michaels Mount.
It was great to go back and show my grandchildren and watch them play on that same beach.

Some of the pages

They had great fun that day making sand castles with Grandad.

Here is my HSMSHS prompt for today

Ben is protected in the water by his water wings.


My daughter Sarah took me to our local craft shop in the week and I could not resist these gorgous fabrics to add to my stash

I was pleased that the blue matched the threads so well as I am stitching with that thread at the moment and can't wait do the finishing.

Talking about stash I recently recieved these charts from Keepsake Stitches and will be sewing them in this 32ct linen. The colour on the chart looks very blue but it is infact stitched in the mint green and peach colours.

Here is more stash I recieved as a Mothers day present from my daughter Carol, I am so excited to have this Just Nans 15 sided biscornu.

Carol also gave me one of the Charm Garden Pins to get me started there are several you can collect but I love this bee one its my favourite.

I love playing with my stash and I have plenty to play with.

Instead of just admiring it I think I had better start some serious stitching.

Watch this space.

As promised

I am starting to get a few finishes done to my recent cross stitch. I realise its a little late for Christmas ornaments but I hope you will like it.
I will still be stitching christmas ornaments along with other things throughout the year and hope to do enough to warrant their own little christmas tree.
I have quite a few stitching smalls already done awaiting the finishing and will post a photo when each one is finished.
This ornament is a complimentary design from Windy Willows. I stitched it 1 over 1 on a 32ct linen fabric using DMC 115.

Blogging at last

I have actually decided to blog for the first time in 18 months. I thought it was time to update and tell you what I have been up to lately.
I went on several holidays in 2008. In June I visited Tenerife this is where I go at least once a year it has become home from home to DH and I and it would not be the same without my yearly visit there.These are some photos I took last year.

This sunset is from Los Gigantes

This is another view from Los Gigantes

and here are some gorgous blooms from the entrance to El Marques in Los Gigantes

In August we went to Capetown in South Africa to visit my daughter Debra and her husband Nigel. It was wonderful, we took hundreds of photos and visited so many places,and of course it was so great to be with my daughter on her 25th wedding anniversary, she had no idea we were coming we just turned up at the party, her face was a picture.

Here are some photos of the lovely scenery in South Africa.

This is the cable car that took us to the top of table mountain

This is taken from table mountain looking at Robin Island

A walk on the beach Debra and Nigel and their dog Stella with table mountain in the background

This is Stella. She is such a gorgeous dog.

Lastly just a little ornament that I cross stitched to mark the occasion of Debra & Nigel's 25th wedding anniversary

This is a Blue ribbons design, I have been doing quite a bit of cross stitching since I last blogged and am really enjoying it. I am torn between my love of cross stitch and scrapping. I will post photos of my recent stitching soon when I have done the finishing on them.

I have my moments when I change hobbies, I have also been knitting and crocheting but I have cross stitched for years and am enjoying it so much at the moment.

I knitted these cardigans and crocheted the ponchos for my friends baby

We also visited Portugal in October and took my Mum with us, and then back to Tenerife in November just DH and myself so although I haven't blogged for a long time I have been kept busy.
Have promised myself to not neglect my blog in the future and will be posting stitchy things soon.
