Tea With Jane For Julie!

Just a quick post today as I want to try and catch up on some blogs while I get the chance:) We were out all day yesterday having a wee bit of retail therapy!

A few weeks agi Julie told me about Twinings Lady Grey teabags and kindly sent a few to try rather than me buy a box then discover that I maybe didn't like them. As it was I did and now Jess and I try and have a cup every day. As a little thank you I decided to stitch Julie The Sampler Girl's complimentary design Tea With Jane and finished it as a little pillow. Now that Julie has received it I can show it:)

Thank You for Julie.

My JCS ornament magazine has finally arrived today! Yay! I don't know what Royal Mail do with mail but I am just happy to have it last! I haven't had chance to have a good look at it yet but I have already seen several that I would love to stitch.

Not a lot of stitching this week as I've had a headache ( get a feeling it's hormonal) so didn't stitch at all last night. My rotation is going to be to pot this week but never mind. I think I'll try and finish Stacey Nash Primitives Hallow's Eve tonight so that I can make it up tomorrow then stitch on A Quaker Christmas tomorrow night.

Hope everyone is keeping warm now the weather has turned rather cold here!
Take care

What a lovely gift, and such a thoughtful gesture. I'm not a tea drinker but quite a few of my friends changed changed to Earl Grey.

Hope the headache goes.
