My Flowers

No cross stitching piccies today as I don't really have anything to show! I made a start on part 5 of Chatelaine Christmas Mystery IV yesterday but didn't quite manage to get it finished. The tree ( or bit of a tree!) is pretty but still does nothing for me if I'm honest! Lol!

I do have a piccie today ( albeit not a very good one) of the gorgeous flowers my DH bought me for our anniversary. The best laugh was that we'd already had flowers from his auntie and from my late MIL's best friend so I had run out of vases! Anyway I did a bit of a shuffle around as I have a pretty pottery jug that belonged to my Mum so I put the ones from his auntie in that and the ones from from DH is the vase! We had a lovely meal out on Thursday and we were fit to burst afterwards! Lol! We all decided to have a pudding which was a big mistake really but it was gorgeous!

I have finally decided on my new rotation and you can see it in my side bar. I am feeling quite happy with this and am looking forward to seeing how I get on with it. So I have a new start for tonight and it's something I have never done before as in a quaker sampler so I am looking forward to stitching on it. It looks pretty straightforward so it'll make a nice change.

The GAST I ordered from Shirley arrived today and they are just gorgeous! They are the newest colours and look so fresh and pretty. I think the green will be an ideal sub for one of the Caron Waterlilies I need for Dragon Dreams Lost Dragon Sampler. Hopefully I will have a bit more stash later in the week! Lol!

What gorgeous flowers Sally, you're a lucky girl! I'm impressed (and a little intimidated LOL) by your new rotation, but your're a quick stitcher aren't you so I don't think it's as scary as it looks!! x
