A Finish For Bren
First of all I would like to share my hubby's big finish this week. He has been really busy with work lately but this weekend he got to finish Desert Star. He really loves Needlepoint so I am looking for a new project for him:) Any suggestions are welcome:)


I got a bit more done on VQ this week. I am really enjoying this one. As usual the fabric colour has not shown up. I am stitching it on 34ct Cafe Au Lait which is a slightly pinkish beige but it looks white in the photo.



It is a long weekend here and the weather is warm and beautiful. I love Spring!! Bren took me for a drive today. We went to a Butterfly Farm where we thought we would get to walk among live butterflies, but they have changed the place to a Butterfly Museum. We decided not to go in as we didn't fancy seeing a bunch of dead insects with pins in them so we went for a nice drive through the mountains instead. Bren bought me a lovely bunch of native waratahs.



Tomorrow we are going to stay around home and potter in the garden.

p.s Go Red Sox:)

    Wow, congrats to Bren!! Awesome!!! I love your VQ too :-) Sounds like you had a lovely time at the butterfly farm. We have one near here too. So nice :-) It is autumn but still warm here. The Red Sox clinched the AL East Division Championship on Friday night... and the Best Record in the AL last night... home field advantage throughout the playoffs now!!!! Yay!

    Wow what a talented hubby you have. Your piece is looking really good. I love the waratahs, they have to be my favorite native flower.

    Desert Star looks lovely, maybe if he's feeling adventurous he could do Nova by Genny Morrow next. Victoria's Sampler looks lovely :)
