Wonderful, I think it very interesting and clever when you actually list what you have got up to... and quite a lot by looking at your list!! I shall remember to do this when I think I have not done a lot!
I recently discovered The Drawn Thread designs and think they are marvelous... your August is really pretty.
Goodness your gifts from Marsha's giveaway are lovely.. happy stitching!
oooh and me please! :)
Have a lovely day :)
