The mystery is solved!!

I am so excited.  I have finally figured out the mystery of my favourite cross stitch - who designed it and what company published/supplied it.

I found out that it was put out by Bucilla, and once I knew that it was pretty easy to google Bucilla and Philippians and find it here.  The abcstitch.com site names the artist - Karla Dornacher who as you can see from her website is extremely talented.

My searches so far haven't unearthed any further cross stitches designed by Karla.  I still live in hope.

Anyway, I had to post this straight away as I am just so happy!

Tower bridge is falling down...

This puzzle was one of the many gifts my sister gave me for my birthday.  How cool is it?  It was a lot of fun to build.  She got it from Aldi, so it wasn't too expensive, but it was still a pretty decent quality.

I put it together a couple of weeks ago while watching the show "Go back to where you came from" on SBS.  I really enjoyed the series which involved a group of Aussies going on a reverse journey of a refugee.

Chocolate = comfort


Plate I bought at Buckingham Palace
 I was given a beautiful box of pink chocolates for my birthday.  I know it was bought from Aldi, but I have no problem with that as they sell great chocolates, and part of the proceeds from this particular box went to The National Breast Cancer Foundation

Finally it is done! My lavender cross stitch....

This cross stitch goes in my record book for the one that's taken me by far the longest to do.  I bought the "French Lavender Counted Cross Stitch Kit - by Dimensions" from eBay in September 2008, it arrived from a lovely buyer all the way from America about 2 weeks later and I think I started it pretty much straight away.

Let's go fly a kite.... A magical Mary weekend

We've only been waiting half a year for this, but we finally got to go and see Mary Poppins on stage this weekend.  Woot!!!
