I’m a bit of a technophobe. It takes me a while to figure things out sometimes. I’ve had my mobile phone for about a year & been annoyed with the picture quality. Today my friend Laura readjusted the settings for me (Higher resolution & Macro function!) & now the camera is amazing!

So… finally…. here is the embroidery piece that I did using the embroidery thread I won in Cymberrain‘s blog giveaway…

I love it! & now i’m hooked on her gorgeous hand dyed embroidery threads.

& a sneak peek at Laura’s gorgeous daughter, Holly…

… she seemed quite partial to her own feet, so here’s one for you!

Goodnight all…

(Laur, thank you!)

Today is such a beautiful, sunny, warm day… made even better by the fact that they over-staffed at work so instead of pulling a double shift ive been sent home & don’t have to go back til 5! Whooppeeeeee!!!!

Here is some sunshine for you…

This one is called Teddy Bear’s Picnic . Its so tiny, in a little 4″ hoop, so cute!

I’m still working on my secret project so i can’t post any pictures yet… & I’m doing another new embroidery piece which i should get done today before i head back to work. I do have a pic of my new Japanese Lucky Cat money box… I hope it sorts my finances out!

This week I was lucky enough to win a giveaway! I’ve won some hand dyed yarn from Cymberrain (aka Diane Cransac) which is absolutely gorgeous…

I get the top one, Sahara, which is the name & colours I chose as part of her competition &…

… you guessed it, I’m also getting Fuschia Sun, which is beautiful!

I also blagged myself an ad on this Raven‘s gorgeous blog, check out her artwork whilst you’re there, it’s stunning, as is her hubby’s, Mikie.P.

I am off to get me some sunshine… hope you’re all having a great weekend!
