Snowflake is back!

And so it would appear is my HAED stitching mojo - yay! It left me for a while there after I finished Girly Gothic but Snowflake started calling me earlier this week and she is pretty much all I've stitched on.

Anyway, here she is ...



I've been busily filling in holes this past week and have finally managed to complete page one (out of four, but two are really only half pages) of the chart. There is an Easter Creature SAL going on at the HAED BB this weekend so hopefully I will be able to fill in pretty much all of those holes you can see on page three - we'll see :) At least fill in those empty holes around her nose and mouth 'cos she looks kind of weird - lol!

Anne L, to answer your question, we had the opportunity to buy the villa we rent here and given that DH still has at least two more years of his contract to go we decided to go ahead and buy. We like the community here, the kids have made friends, it is close to their school and well, we didn't want to move :) If we decide to head back to Australia after DH's current contract expires then we will either sell up or rent it out. Where we live is a popular location so I don't think we'll have too much trouble with either of those options :)

On that note, I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Easter - I've just finished playing Easter Bunny and it is time I called it a night :)
