Thanks Mary Jo it is gorgeous, also a big thanks for the goodies you have sent with, you are very kind.
And of course Mrs Paisley could not resist to come and see what have arrived.. and it so cute and will be so nice to play with..
I have also completed my humbug, it is the first time I have attempted this funny shape and had no pattern for it - this was really challenging. Well it turned out so nice that I almost could not part with it. I would love to show it to you but my partner have not received it yet and it have to wait..
We have the most gorgeous summer days here in Cape Town. We spend most late afternoons with a picnic dinner and chilled bottle of wine on the beach with the kids and the dog. Aren’t we fortunate and so Blessed.
Have a happy stitching day,

I have so much to share and where do I start….?
I will start where I ended my last post and that was the exchange with Lucy. Here is the needle book Lucy stitched for me. She stitched a pretty black work design and finished it with blue fabric and ribbon. Isn’t it beautiful? Thanks Lucy for this quite needle book and the fabulous goodies you have sent with. I really appreciate it.
I am bit pressed for time here and will post more tomorrow.
Have a happy day.

We had lost and lots of rain lately, strange for this time if the year as the cold fronts move past us more south and have less of an influence on our warm summer weather. For this time of the year what normally looks like this:-
Looked like this since Thursday last week :-( So no fun to be had on my scooter at the annual Cape Town Scooter Rally this weekend. It was a real disappointment! And some more rain is forecasted for the rest of the week as yet another cold front is moving in:-(
..and I must show you this photo, even he felt cold and miserable (this photo have been taken above University of Cape Town Campus against Table Mountain.
Lynn posted that she have received the parcel I have sent here. Now I can show you the ATC (Artist Trading Card) I have stitched for her birthday:-

I received an email form Lucy to let me know that her parcel arrived today – so now I can show you what I have stitched for her. I stitched her this cute freebie pattern one over one on cream Irish linen and finished it in a needle book (as she did not have one). I have also stitched her a matching scissor fob, that is too cute!
So, it is Friday again! Yeaaa! I have lots of stitching and finishing planed for this weekend and this:-
Yes, this is the biggest scooter get together in South Africa. Sounds like great fun and I’m sooo looking forward to it! I will show some picks next week.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I thought I will stitch Cathy something special in silk ribbon. I have designed the patterns of each of the pieces myself as I wanted to duplicate little roses and blue flowers in the stitching as it is on the finishing fabric. I thought it turned out rather nicely :) :)
Till next time, happy stitching dear friends!
