This past week I have had a few problems commenting on people's blogs. I rectified the problem, sort of, but now appear to be a "no reply" blogger! I have no idea why all these problems have come about and I am getting quite frustrated. So , to all my bloggy friends, I apologise and I am trying to fix the problems. Although, if anyone knows how to change the "no reply" issue I would love to hear from you.

NOW the good stuff. On Wednesday I attended a wonderful workshop at Treehouse Textiles with Gail Pan. There were are couple of us groupies there and others there to actually learn the basics. I did, however, still learn a couple of useful things. Gail had all her beautiful projects for us to look at  and her work is absolutely wonderful. There were quilts, wall hangings, pincushions, bags and heaps of other things to fondle. We were given her new stitchery to work on which is not officially released until next month. I chose to use a Cosmo Seasons blue variegated thread.


I also purchased some of Gail's yummy new fabrics and can't wait to use them.

Treehouse Textiles sell heaps of beautiful fabrics , more contemporary than I usually choose. They also have some yummy linens. So, my plan is to make some cushions with these...
Seeing as the weather has been quite perfect for stitching, I have finished another little Christmas design by Gail Pan ,( I think this is the 6th one of the same), to make into a small Christmas pressie.
I found the design for this cat stitchery in Simply Vintage and have used Cottage Garden threads in the same colour I used for Simone's mini.
I hope you have all been able to find time to stitch especially during these cold, windy, wet days. Please be patient with my blogger problems as I really enjoying being part of the blogging community.
Angel blessings.
