I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Friday on my mind!

It's Friday..... I just love Friday....  Second best day of the week - mainly because I don't have to go to work on a Friday and that means that I get the whole day to blog and stitch....  and boy do I have a lot of blog reading and stitching to catch up on!  Best day of the week is Saturday as hubby is also home!

Today is a lovely day here in Sunny Perth, WA- in fact it is almost cold.... After having a run of 60 odd days without rain and being over 32 deg C (~90 deg F), we had rain yesterday (yippee - happy dance) and the temperature dropped dramatically.  I just had a look at the weather website and apparently down our way we had a low of 11.4 deg C overnight... no wonder I was cold during the night.  I had to get up and put on my fleecy PJ's, that's how cold I got.....  Of course snuggling up to hubby also helped, as did Felix when he decided to get on the bed at 4am for a purring cuddle!  Time to get the doona out of the cupboard...  Although we may still end up with one last hot spell near Easter, but I think we can safely say that Autumn has arrived - at long last!!!

More rain is due over the weekend and we will possibly have a wet Monday - which normally I would hate but I am going to grin and bear it as we so desparately need the rain!

Okay, so now for the latest stitching update.  As promised below is a pic of the monkeys that I am currently stitching for Quilts 4 Kids.  This square is for Wyatt A.  Wyatt's theme is Monkeys....

I decided to split the square in 4 and stitch some little motifs in each square.  So far I have completed 1 and nearly done the second - just the backstitch to go.  Then onto the next one....  Have to get a wriggle on as it is due next Friday!  Still the next 2 are quite small so shouldn't take long, even for the world's slowest stitcher (Me!).

The designs that I chose to stitch for Wyatt are from Cross Stitch Crazy issue 112 and 134.

Corner 1 - Cross Stitch Crazy, Issue 134
Corner 2 - Cross Stitch Crazy, Issue 112
Time to get off blogger now and go and start stitching before there are no more hours left in the day!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend.  See you all again soon.

Til next time, happy stitching....

Yes Fridays are good, but I like any day really. Have to admit I am sitting here at home from work and it feels good. The little monkey looks good...very cute in fact :)
