A Quaker Christmas - Update No. 2


Thank you everyone, for your encouragement with this project.

I'm really enjoying stitching it. The sampler's progressing quite quickly.
Like the 'Love with a Capital L' piece that I did last year, it's such a simple stitch, but the size dictates a little dedication to get it going (& thus keep up the motivation to finish).

Thanks also to Sally for the Brillante Weblog Award. I don't usually go for these sorts of ideas but I will carry this one further when I get the chance. It's a nice way of being introduced to other stitching blogs.

I'm off to Melbourne in the south for the best part of a week. To celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary on Wednesday, the MOTH organised tickets to see 'Wicked' at the Regent Theatre next weekend . Because it turns out that he has meetings most of the week in his southern office, we are putting Lucy & Harry into boarding school, sending Gypsy to 'the aunts' (two of the true and rightful heirs of our fortune - i.e. the 2 eldest princesses who share a house) & flying the coup on Wednesday.

While I'm gone, stay healthy & warm or cool (depending on where you are). We've had some wintery weather here in Brisbane, this week.

Happy stitching

Bliss
