I'm back :)

Will fill you in our trip and get back into blogging mode next week after the kids have gone back to school and our dog/house-sitters have left :)

Ornament for August

Rudy by Glory Bee - JCS 2007

Rudy by Glory Bee - JCS 2007

Stitched on natural 28 count linen
Graziano, I think - it was a scrap leftover from another project)
with DMC threads.

Oh, and a bead from Mill Hill :)

My apologies for the creases! I haven't had a chance to give him a press as DH has gone to bed and the iron and board are kept in our walk-in closet - it will have to wait until I have a finishing day.

I will be a little quiet for a couple of weeks - our dog/house-sitters arrived today and DH, myself and the munchkins head for the airport tomorrow for a little summer travelling. We will be taking a laptop so I may have a chance to do a post or two while away. Depends on internet availability, cost and whether DS will let me use HIS laptop - lol!!

Something I've been remiss at lately (!!) and that is thanking those of you who stop by and leave me a comment! They put a smile on my face and I really appreciate them. So, a big thank to you all :)

I must go and check my list and make sure I have everything packed and organised, and then to bed I think. The last few days have been a whirlwind of grocery shopping, laundry and re-organising my kitchen cupboards, and I've been awake since 5.30am this morning - it is after midnight as I write this! I can go away safe in the knowledge that my house guests have a well-stocked fridge/freezer and well-organised cupboards :)

Oops, almost forgot! Here's an update on Morag (aka Moonlight Guardian by Dragon Dreams). She is coming on holidays with me - which reminds me I'd better replace my scissors with my Clover thread cutter for stitching on the plane :)
