A gift, a house guest and having fun!

As a thank you for sending her the Sew Red and Sew Blue charts, I received a lovely gift from Paula of Kelmscott Designs - a pair of her newest scissors, Tudor Rose and a pretty Adam and Eve needleminder. Thank you Paula - it's nice to be appreciated and thanks for the offer of help to 'turn professional'. I will definitely give this some thought.

While my daughter and son-in-law are away in Leicester for a few days after helping Kirby move to Loughborough, Hector is holidaying at my house. After a dull day yesterday, the sun decided to make an appearance and he found a sunny spot in the living room.

And Kirby seems to have made a great start to Freshers Week. She is already wearing her 'Towers' t-shirt and is obviously enjoying herself! You can party this week but remember that lectures start next week!

Last night was Stitch-n-Bitch so I took along Suzanne's Emblem of Love RR which arrived in yesterday's mail. I only half-stitched a motif so not enough to show yet. I am also working on a new design but it's still in it's early stages. I have 'finished' the belated birthday gift so I need to put together a package and get it in the mail to it's recipient.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    This granddaughter of yours does look like you !
    I find that my boy is spending more time partying than studying...
    Hector looks like Cookie when she goes and lies in the rays of sun. Not today though - it's quite gloomy, but I am trapped inside, so it doesn't matter !
    Let me know when you are going professional. The scissors are lovely (it's a much better picture than on merchant sites).

    What a great thing to receive from Kelmcott - both are really great! I love your designs too and say go professional - but yet that takes up so much time doesn't it?

    What a sweetie that Paula is! I just ordered a pair of the Tudor Rose scissors and can't wait till they arrive. Thanks again for sending out the Sew Red/Sew Blue charts -- I hope you might consider designing professionally, too!

    What a lovely gift from Paula. She's such a thoughtful person. I love those scissors and her needle minders get more and more inventive all the time.
    Hector looks so comfy. Is nt it amazing how they seem to know exactly where the best place is for a snooze :>)
    Well, Kirby looks as if she's settling in well. I love the t shirts. Hopefully it's not too chilly on those shoulders or maybe, when you're that age, you don't feel the chill...haha!
    Hugs Angela
