Sunday update

First of all thanks for all your sweet remarks regarding my lost GFG flower. Although I didn't find it myself you're right - hopefully someone found it & liked it well enough to do something with it.

Friday was a wonderful mail day - two packages with foreign stamps addressed to ME!! Thank you so much Alison http://thesquirrel01.blogspot.com/ for the beautiful 'Cross Stitch Card Shop' magazine. As I wrote you, I'm already choosing patterns from it for Christmas stitching. Bliss http://blissxstitches.blogspot.com/ I want to thank you so much for sending the wonderful 'The Ultimate Margaret Sherry Collection'. It has many adorable patterns which will be such fun to stitch. Much time has already been spent browsing through both & I know they will give me many more hours of pleasure. THANK YOU!!

Not too much stitching done this week. This is a busy time of the year for us as we get our on-line stores ready for Christmas. The coming week will be hectic as well but I do hope to finish Katie Rose's quilt square. Most of the backstitching is done & with a bit of luck I can finish that this afternoon. Then all I have left to stitch is the border with a rose in each corner. That should be very relaxing. I'm sure you noticed something strange about my girl (who I now call KR) and her cat ----- no eyes. Before I tackle those I think I'll practice some French knots on a scrap of Aida as I certainly don't want to mess it up.

Hope everyone had/is having a great weekend & I wish you all a good week.

Almost forgot. For my fellow bookworms - I've just started "The Hungry Tide" by Amitav Ghosh.

Your quilt square is looking really pretty! The backstitching really brings her to life and I like your colour changes.

What fun mail to get, I love MS projects. Good luck on the french knots, I can never seem to get them right. I usually end up doing a colonial knot or using a tiny bead instead.

It was my pleasure to help. I hope you get a lot of pleasure out of your booklet.
'Frederick' is giving you problems? But he's sooo cute! Do you want to do a SAL with me in 2007 or 2008? Hehe ... one session a week. I've been slowing going since 2004. Time he was finished, don't you think?

Hi Margaret
I am still around but it's been a tough few months. Had a lovely day on Saturday with Karen and Allie. They have inspired me, so must try and blog more. Hope to chat with you soon.

What is The Hungry Tide about? I love to read too. Just finished 12 Sharp by Janet Evanovich, very funny. Currently I'm reading Murder Most Frothy, a coffee shop mystery by Cleo Coyle.

Hello Margaret - hope your book is a good read! If you are after a real emotional journey, I can recommend Maggie O'Farrell "After You'd Gone". Its beautiful! As for those Hens, I reckon that you are the lovely pink hen on the far left (with the flower and handbag) holding your glass of vino and I am the Purple hen sitting next to you toasting your good health :-D

If there are secrets to a great french knot, I would love to hear it! But in the meantime, back to greenhouse 101!

Hi--just encountered your blog and looked at your pretty projects. I felt sad about the flower, but think how someone's day will be improved if they find it out of the blue!
