Hello, Hello!

I'm back...finally! And I've missed you all terribly!!! I have so much to catch up on and so much to show you and blah, blah, blah :) Thank you everyone who checked up on me. Thanks to all of you who sent me sweet birthday wishes too. I've received some lovely goodies in the mail that I've lined up to show you soon.

The only silver lining to being computer-less, is getting lots accomplished because the internet isn't beckoning me ;) Case in point, this sweet and so-fun-to-stitch finish. Done in just a few days because I could hardly stand to put it down...

Staci hi :>)
It's good to see you back but I know exactly what you mean about the time thief (the computer) We know it steals our time but we still love it plus, of course, it helps us keep in touch with all our friends.
I love your beautiful stitched piece and absolutely adore the home dyed fabric. It's such a gorgeous colour and matches the design perfectly.
Warm wishes Angela
