Basking in the sun...

Great to be back. I hope life as been good to you in my absence. Thanks for your visits and lovely comments. Each hello inspires me in my crafting.
I have been away on a holiday to sunny Queensland. Amazing blue skies, gorgeous beaches and fun theme parks. Consequently I haven't quite finished the bench seat in the very centre of the MJ cross stitch sampler but it's close. I think it will be finished in another 2x nights of solid stitching.

I was excited on my return to collect a family heirloom chair that I repainted then reupholstered in a linen. I am so thrilled with it. The chair was bequeathed to my husband by his late aunt. The gold leaf and velvet just didn't suit our modern-style home.


By the way, Bob the cat didn't suffer. He stayed at Catnip Cattery and was treated to daily play sessions, long pats and massages. I had almost daily texts and photos from Bob (LOL) so we felt very comfortable with leaving our kitty baby for the first time.
