Just a quick entry to let you all know that I am alive and well!!! I’ve only just got the internet working here, and I have thousands of messages to check through, as you can imagine. I will post more about our horrendous journey later, but for now, suffice to say that we are all well, and settling in. My daughter started her new school yesterday too.

Well I’ve been quietly getting on with ABC Deja Vue. I’ve loved working with silk for the first time, and I think it has turned out really pretty. I can’t seem to get a good picture of the variegation in the thread. Maybe once I’ve got my scanner up and running, I’ll try scanning it.
Anyway, now to decide what to work on next. I am still waiting to move into my own apartment, so I won’t be working on my big Kab’aa doors project just yet. So, I’ll have a look through my stash and see what takes my fancy!!!

I’ve been stitching up a storm the last week or so, waiting for the builders to finish in our apartment. I’ve put up some photos of my latest finishes.
The little house is for my daughter. The stitching part was easy but putting it together was quite fiddly – so the finish isn’t as neat as I would have liked.
The Dreaming by Dinky Dyes is stitched on a pale pink evenweave with Anchor variegated thread. I’m thinking of making this up into a cushion at some stage.
Lastly the heart is a present for my mother-in-law. She loves chilli peppers and grows them in her garden, so I thought she might like this.
