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!

All Loved Up!!

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole
~ Roger Caras ~

They're finished!!

I have, at long last, finished the "Puppy Love" SAL that was the SAL over on the MS Lovers Blog for 2013. I did hope to finish this before the end of 2013... but I missed by 2 days!!  So instead of a final finish for 2013 I have a first finish for 2014 instead!

Margaret Sherry's Puppy Love
Over the next couple of weeks I will hopefully "finish" the puppies into a lovely hanging for the craft room.

My latest stitching is a very secret stitch... which I hope to be able to show you sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Til next time happy stitching!

Be Happy

Guess what....

Darn the wheel of the world!  Why must it continually turn over?  
Where is the reverse gear?

I am late again for my TUSAL post!  Really late this time!  The New Moon was on New Years Day, but here we are already 12 days into the new month and the new year and no posting from me!

TUSAL January 2014 - New Year Starts
Seeing as how this is the first ORT report for 2014 I thought I would take the photo with the three projects that I intend to start this year - a Chatelaine, a Mirabilia and a secret project from the World of Cross Stitching magazine hiding in the back of the photo.

If you would like to sign up and join in the fun this year, then pop on over to Daffycat's blog and leave a comment saying that you're in!  The next 2014 ORT report will be ready for publication on or around 30th January 2014 - hopefully I will be on time for the next one!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2014!

Thank you for your friendship over the last year and thank you for all your lovely comments on my posts.
I look forward to catching up with you all and your stitching adventures over the next year.

We will open the book.  It's pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves. 
The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.
