Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Happy dance #4 for the weekend!

Crikey, I'm surprising myself with my stitching marathon this weekend - in answer to your question, Jenna, I'm not joining in with the Stitch-a-Thon this weekend, as today (Sat) it's the last day of my visitors being here, and we're supposed to be meeting up with another friend who's down visiting from Brisbane some time during the day, then out for dinner tonight with Fraze and Hayley ... and I'm working 4 hours overtime tomorrow ... so I didn't think it left me with much stitching time. Now, if I'd classed my Stitch-a-Thon for 24 hours from Thursday night, I'd be laughing!! :D

Anyway, last night I still couldn't stop stitching - I was laying in bed, with my ornie magazines next to me and the fabric and threads for another very small project, and watching Medium on TV ... well, let's just say the temptation got too much for me, and at 10.30pm I picked up the needle again for a while. I got half of it stitched last night, then woke up early and finished the other half this morning while my houseguests are still sleeping their heads off. Don't know what time they came home, but it was at least after 2am - goodness knows when they'll eventually surface ... probably just in time to have a quick coffee with Tom. Anyway, here is my last finish for the weekend ... yeah, I know, I said that yesterday ... haha. It's the Peace*Joy*Love ornament by Lizzie*Kate from the 2002 JCS ornie issue - and I stitched this to complete a challenge on the Friends Gather BB to "broaden your horizons". A different theme is set each month, and this month's was L*K/Mosey 'n Me style.

OK, off to do some quiet housecleaning and some computer software upgrades while my guests sleep everything off ;P

Whew! I hope you unplugged your smoke detector this weekend because there must be smoke coming off of that needle!

I'm glad that you've been able to fit in some stitching time for yourself even with guests in the flat. I hope you had a great time on Saturday!
