Just a short post today - 

Not my usual desk because I have not been crafting this week.  The dreaded 'I don't feel very well' hit again so I just sat, read emails and knitted.  THEN I had a reminder from my cross stitching group - Quilts for Breast Cancer Group on Yahoo - that I needed to get this month's square posted.

I signed up to do two squares, one each for two sisters.  After I had read the requests I was in tears and felt it was the least I could do.  I have finished one square and I am now sitting and trying to get the second square finished.
So I sit and stitch............ tara for now.......

You can visit here for all the deets on WOYWW.


  1. Christine, was it you that wanted my ink pad reference sheet? Ive put it on y blog as a can access it through a link in the left bar. meanwhile, you are a good gal to donate the squares, cross stitching is such a labour of love.

    1. Don't remember asking but thanks all the same - great list and as I don't class myself as a stamper (I have a few) this list is a great help.

      Stitching is now in the post - onto the next one!!

  2. What a lovely thing to do and even more so with you not having been too well. Thank you for sharing this week

  5. Your projects are so lovely. Cross stitch is definitely a labor of love. I'm sure your recipients are going to appreciate someone taking the time to make such a lovely piece for them. Thanks for sharing, and your desk looks so neat & tidy! Hope you are over the 'not feeling well' bit. Lots of nasty stomach bugs going around in my area. Thanks for the visit to my WOYWW.

  6. Projects look lovely and nicely done! Hope the 'bug' leaves soon. I'm a bit late desk hopping... Happy WOYWW! Nan 107

  7. Hi Christine, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, the colours of the wedding are blue, yellow & white - originally based on Leeds FC colours as the groom is a huge fan. The wedding is in June this year, I delivered the invitations to them today, they seemed pleased!

  8. That is so sweet of you to do that! And your projects are looking very nice, as well. I'm running terribly behind this week but I did want to make sure I got a return visit in, since I really do appreciate you visiting my desk and leaving me a comment. Sorry you thought you were getting ill...I hope it decided to stay away and you feel all better now, though. :) Deeyll #164


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
