Days Three and Four

I am so loving this new rotation.  I don't plan on what I will stitch every day.  My enthusiasm to stitch is through the roof.  Anyhow, Thursday night and Friday night is Kell Kritters by Long Dog Sampler and A Vase of Flowers by I have no clue.

Day Two

I stitched on a HAED design called Mask of Colors by Ravenscroft.  I have had this in my stash to stitch for very many years.  I started this one this year too.

I had a lovely time yesterday at the afternoon tea.  Met about 16 or so ladies and apparently they meet every month or so for a natter.  3 hours of nattering later I got home.  They made me feel very welcome.  Everyone in Kirup knows Alan (he's a plumber and tradesman are rare as hen's teeth in the country), so I was introduced to everyone as the plumber's wife.  Very novel I can tell you.

Went in and visited my darling Beryl today.  At least she was awake today.  When Megan and I went in on Monday we couldn't get her to wake up.  She is well but continues to deteriorates mentally.  At least she is happy and they are so caring and lovely in the nursing home.

Day One

I had a an idea yesterday.  I do get them sometimes.  LOL  I would change the project that I am stitching on each day.  I would do this until I have stitched on every WIP/UFO I own.  So last night I stitched on this (most of my stitching takes place at night).

Ruffled Feathers by Kooler Design Studio.  I started this design this year as I felt I should have a chooky picture in my house seeing as how I love chooks.  (A bit of side information here.  I was born in the year of the Rooster.  No wonder I am a chook fanatic.)  For the non Australian readers, Chooks are what we call call Chickens.

On another note, today I have been invited to an afternoon tea with some ladies here in Kirup.  The first time since I have moved down here.  I am a tad nervous as I am not as confident as I appear to be.  I put on a face.  Feeling slightly sick and sweaty.  Bring a plate was the order.  A bit of a worry as I have no bring a plate biscuits in the house.  Don't have bread as I don't often eat it.  Found some dip and have cut up some vegie sticks.  Off to the Loo and will stand at the back door.  Our place goes from front street to back street and I am not sure which way the lady will come to pick me up.  Fingers crossed.
