One month later

I can't believe it's a month since I updated my blog - I must have been busy LOL so here's what's been going on:

Saturday 19th March was the 1st Meet Up for Needlecraft Haven - it was a fab day, lot sof chatting and stitching. A few games which I think everyone enjoyed, and a pub meal to finish :) Here's a few piccies (thanks Rachael and Chris) 





Julie gave me a gorgeous gift at the Meet Up - one of her bunnies called Mrs Ticklestick - she now helps me keep Needlecraft Haven sorted.

Last weekend DH and I went to open up the caravan for the season - after sorting out a burst pipe and capturing a runaway Ruby we had quite a good weekend. We had a lovely walk up the estuary on Saturday.

Stitching wise I have finished Jaclyn's RR - I did the Cardinal bird. I am posting it off to Dusty tomorrow.

I have just finished Mum's Prairie Schooler piece in time for Mother's Day tomorrow - I just have to frame it now and it's finished. I have the Q to do next for her birthday in May.

And finally here is my Tusal jar - it's certainly filling up this year

I will try not to leave it another month before blogging again - thanks for catching up with all my news :)

It's great to see your stitchy bug taking hold - lots of lovely pieces again. I do love the PS piece for your Mum though. Wanda is waving to her new DSis. :0)

It must be so much fun to get together with other stitchers. The cardinal you stitched is beautiful.
