We're back home again. A good time was had by all, though I think I'm allergic to my mum and dad's house! I had a terrible bout of allergic sinusitis and not for the first time up there. It's gone now though thank goodness. Ouch it hurt!
I picked up the first thing that came to hand to take with me to stitch, and it happened to be the CHS alphabet. Easy to carry just one chart and a few threads. I finished S for Squirrel and did a fair bit more of the border too.
Just before we left I got a lovely bit of post from Staci. She was one of the winners of my Christmas giveaway and she very kindly sent me a little something as a thank you. More than a little something actually - all the DMC threads that are discontinued over here, a bunch of DMC 115 (my favourite!) and some Piecemakers size 28 (also my favourites). Thank you so much Staci - I really didn't expect anything, it was a wonderful surprise and a lovely gift. Lulu thinks so too!
