Holiday update

We are having a great holiday. As you will be aware if you read this blog, i wasn't that excited about coming (MIL issues) but we really have had a great time so far. My nephew is just adorable (i will post pictures when we get back) and it's been great spending so much time with him.

I've nothing exciting to report really. We've just been hanging out with family and friends. The great thing about this trip is that we have actually had a lot of time to just relax. Previous trips haven't been as relaxed. We have had something on every evening but days have been relatively free.

I've got some stitching done whilst here. I actually finished my square for the Fair and Square Exchange but now i have been assigned my partner i am not going to use what i have stitched as i have something more suitable for her (i hope!) in my stash at home. So that will have to be started when we get back. I am now working on my pif gifts and hope to get one completed before we go home. I think i will.

Tomorrow evening we're off to my inlaws condo in Huntsville. It's about 3 hours from where we are. It is a beautiful place, here's a picture of it
There's 9 of the family going up. Should be fun. There's loads to do on site...caneoing, swimming, tennis, biking to name a few. I love going up there. We're staying until Friday and then coming back for my cousin's wedding which is on saturday. We leave for home later on sunday.

Huntsville is a lovely place to visit! I'm sure you'll have great fun there. And I'm so glad to read you found the LNS with no problem. I had only visited Golden Threads once but thoroughly enjoyed my visit ~although my credit card didn't agree!

Try and post to your partner your square, she just might like it! Margaret loves the one I did, so I'm sending that one to her after all. Have a great time!

Glad to hear you're having a great time Cheryl! I live a few hours north of Huntsville (in Sudbury) and have a cottage not too far away from where you're staying. It's a lovely area for sure!

Sounds like you had a great holiday, that's good to hear! That's an adorable little cushion too. I'm glad to see you're stitching your freebie charts, all I can even do with mine is stash them.
