How are you all... long time no post for little ole me... but now I'm back.
It is so long since I have done a post that I can't even remember what I haven't told you and have told you all.....
So what have we been doing.. not a lot!
But we did go to Hong Kong for a nice week's holiday at the beginning of August. How nice was that?! We had a wonderful time and managed to not get lost on the MTR! Didn't even spend too much money for a change! And guess what - I managed to find some crafty stuff in a wedding shop. No stitching stash, only card making stash - but stash is stash! Especially as I was able to locate the really long corsage pins that I have been looking for! These ones have lovely beads on top in red, purple and green. All ready for me to add my extra little touch!

pin cushions, coin purses and beaded flowers
And happy dance - I even managed to stitch on board the plane! Yes, Security allowed me to take my embroidery needle on the plane, no questions asked... so I stitched all the way there while watching movies and most of the way back home again. I decided to use the flight as an opportunity to start my Winter "Cool Cat" for the MS Lovers Blog SAL that I am miserably behind in....

Started and stitched on flight to Hong Kong and return to Perth
I have managed to get a bit more done on Winter Kitty in the week since being back home, but not a real lot... I came back from holidays with a touch of the flu which has upset my joints and my hands so most evenings I have vegged out on the couch in front of the Olympics! I did manage to get a card made yesterday but I will leave that creation to the next post.
Now I realised early this week that I didn't do a IHSW report before going away - but I guess when you don't stitch anything you don't have anything to report! But fingers crossed it will be a different story this weekend...
Before I go I have to leave you with a couple of photos... the first is a photo of one of the "28" parrots that come into our backyard every day. They used to come and visit our apple trees when we had fruit, but now that the fruit has all finished we have started leaving them apples to eat in a couple of tubs. The cats love watching the parrots fly down and eat the apples. A couple of the birds take the apple back up into the tree, others eat them on the lawn or perch in the strawberry bed tank... and this one decided to perch on "Phil's" butt!

And finally, what I know you have been waiting for - a new puppy photo. These photo's were taken the weekend before we went away. We will be bringing our new little girl home on 1st September at this stage. The final contender for the name this week is "Mitzi".
Isn't she just adorable, and so tiny!
Well me lovelies, it is time for me to sign off and go to bed....
So til next time when I will have a TUSAL update, and hopefully an IHSW update, for you as well, happy stitching!
