Thank you!!!

I would sincerely like to thank everyone who read my last post and left a message. You are all truly wonderful and I consider all of you to be true friends.
Pokua, thanks for the tip about the fabric for MOTM, I will certainly make sure that I am happy with the coverage before I get too far along with the design.
I have been stitching, every night as my de-stress, but I can't get my camera to work to show you any progress pictures. Joel, our 7yo, thinks that the camera is a toy and I think that he has damaged it. We have trouble turning it on, and if by some chance it does turn on the screen does this jittery sort of thing before actually turning on.
I have mainly been stitching on Impatient Ballerina by HAED, and a little on CDC by Ink Circle of a lunch time (I only work 2 days per week so progress is quite slow, but it all helps.) I have also had a new start, Spanish Geometrical Sampler by The Needle's Content. Here is a link to the completed design. The colors and silks are amazing!!
It is a week of birthdays at the moment, mine was on the 30th of September, Caitlyn (my baby) had her sixth birthday on the 1st of October and DH has his on the 5th, I am caked out!! LOL
The building of our house is coming along great after some initial delays. There was a problem with the design of the concrete slab, so our builder had to consult with another company for the fault to be rectified. Once that was all sorted out and the slab laid, the frame and roof tiles went up, and the windows were put where they had to go. Last week the plumbers and electrician were there, and the heating and cooling units were installed. The bricklayers and plasterers are due to be there in the coming week. Sorry, there are no photos due to the camera problem.
Well I must go, I am about to do an order for the latest JCS ornament issue, plus some other things, I have to justify the postage HEHE. I am going to get some threads so that I can kit a few things up.
Happy stitching everyone, and stay safe.

Happy Birthdays :-)

How frustrating is it when kids play with the camera! Drives me batty.

Glad the house is progress and you are getting some stitching time for yourself.

Happy belated Birthday Joanne! I hope it was a nice one :o) Sorry I missed it :o(

It sounds like you've been stitching and it's too bad we can't see progress pictures but it sure sounds like there are camera problems ;o) LOL!

I'd also love to see pictures of your new house!

Hi Joanne, thanks for your comment on my blog about Bernadette's retreat. I had intended to go, as it really isn't that far from Eltham, and I've always wanted to go on one, but a car smash put an end to my plans, with the excess insurance payment of $500 :-(
I didn't think about going up there just to pop in, and it's too late to plan for that now, as my weekend is already committed...but have a great time!
