Despite a busy working week I have managed to put some stitches in the Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Castle. A king is nearly born! I am stitching this as part of a SAL at Linda's blog.
I am loving stitching on this as it is really easy. The thread glides through those holes like butter and the chart has larger print than usual for the graph. Also the humour of the pictures within it make me smile as I recreate them on the fabric. Below is the kit photo of the centre section I am currently stitching.
I had a sweet postal this morning. Back in May I was delighted to be the winner of a giveaway at sweet blog Lilly My Cat. Here is the giveaway post. The parcel took a little longer than usual to arrive in Australia all the way from the US as it was redirected back to Pat's house at one point. We are both so happy it arrived. I really love the crochet pin cushion that she handmade. Wow, what a beautiful crochet. My current pin cushion is old and tatty so I now have the prettiest one to replace it. She also enclosed a cute cat card. Pat and I share a love of cats called "Lily/Lilly". My hubby and I owned a Himalayan cat called Lily who passed away three years ago.
The next two weeks are school holidays so I may not be able to update as frequently. There are two dance eisteddfods over that time that my daughter is participating in. Wish her luck.
Thanks for stopping by my garden...
