Home with lots to show

We arrived home at 5am this morning. It's great to be home but sad to leave behind friends and family, especially our gorgeous little nephew! I'll probably blog more about our trip later in the week but i thought i'd make this a stitchy update...

First things first. Look at this gorgeous pillow that i received in the mail from Anna It has my initial stitched on it. She made this for me as a gift for visiting her blog (5000th visitor draw)
Anna, i absolutely love it!! Thank you so so much! It was so kind of you to make me such a beautiful gift! It is proudly on display in my bookshelf at the moment.

Now here's some things that i have been stitching recently. I have been enjoying working on some small projects. They're all freebies by the way. The first is "Hearts Desire" by Debbie Draper Designs stitched on 32 ct cream belfast linen with Vikki Clayton Silk called "Russian Sage."The second is "The Three Emblems" by Papillon Creations. I am stitching this on 32 ct cream belfast linen with DMC115The third is "MY Treasure" from Dragon Dreams

Im enjoying all these projects so much. I'm keeping it a surprise for now as to what i'll be doing with them!

Here's a picture of some stash i got in Canada. I can't wait to start the Feather Fairy! I have a few big projects on the go at the moment so i'm trying to resist for now but i have all the threads (also bought in Canada) so it's very tempting!


It's going to take me forever to catch up on everyone's blogs - I have about 200 feeds in my google reader! Looking forward to finding out what you've all been up to though!

The pillow is beautiful, what a great surprise to receive. All your projects are so lovely too, what a nice selection of colors and patterns you've had to pick from when you wanted to stitch. As to stash, nice picks. I'll look forward to when you start the feather fairy, very cute.
