I woke up this morning and did my usual thing, made a coffee and sat outside in my beautiful garden. Came indoors, OK! whats to be done today? shall I do this or shall I do that? I have a choice!
I realise there are millions of people across Australia (the World) asking themselves the same thing 'What would I do if I lost my home?' after watching what has happened in Victoria over the past weekend
But some of these poor souls have not only lost their homes, they have lost family as well. I don't know about you, but my thought processes can't cope with that, and nothing has happened to me, so how are they coping??

So let all of Us, Dig Deep and Donate to The Red Cross Appeal - and send
Positive Thoughts to Victoria and Try and Lift Them Up

2009...and I have Cross Stitch Block...what to do??

'Happy New Year to All, may we all be Happy and Healthy'

Well as you can tell from the title things aren't good. I stopped stitching during November while the renovations were happening, lots to do, painting, paving, gardening etc. and by evening I was pooped, so no stitching. December preparing for Christmas (which was wonderful) still no stitching.
Does anyone know if you can get counselling 'Stitchers Block'?

Things aren't all bad though...I can read...and I'm re reading the Diana Gabaldon Series to ready myself for the 7th in the series 'An Echo in the Bones' which should be published at the end of the year Woo! Hoo!

It Started with a 'Trench'

Things are happening at 'My Place' and it started with a trench on the 4th October...We are having a new Gable Patio put on to the back of our house (I'm excited) So I've decided to keep a picture diary of the happenings. If you click on the slide show on the right hand side that will take you to my Picasa Web Albums and you can follow the progress if you feel inclined, only if you want to, no pressure...

If at first you don't succeed! Start Again? Of Course!

Yes I've started again, bought the new fabric 22 count Aida and I actually bought the right amount this time, Woo Hoo! Oh! Dear 3rd Oct.
I'm stitching with DMC 520...I've done some research and traditionally this sampler would have been stitched in 'red' but I just couldn't handle stitching in red so I've gone 'green'

An Eight and Sixteen Year Old's Sampler

I found these wonderful Samplers at the City of Gosnells Museum. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos they were hung quite high on the wall, and me being quite short, it was difficult to stretch up. Like you Sherri I am in awe of these old samplers, can you imagine an 8 year old stitching this today?
