Getting back from work today I had a lovely suprise as I opened the door and saw a parcel on the mat. I had just got my wfb back. wfb or wee fat bird is the name we give the round robins (we being Terri, AnnT, AnnP and myself and those who know us will know why we have a daft name for it). This one was a chart ordered specially for me by Sew and So and is from Vermillion Designs, it is called Victorian Bell Pull. I did the outside and the wee pictures were done by AnnP top, Terri centre, and AnnT bottom.

I have a wee bit of the wording to finish and then it will be ready either to frame or to make into a bell pull, which will maybe depend on whether or not I can find a frame that will fit it.

Thank you ladies you have made a wonderful job of this and I am thrilled with the results.

Amongst other things I have been working on is The KissyCross Mystery Sampler. I have just about completed part 8 and have part 9 and the edging still to do. I am also working on something else at the moment but I cannot tell you about this as it is for a Christmas gift.

I didnt write anything yesterday as by the time I got back from Hobbycraft I was just about falling asleep on my feet. Work in the morning, shopping with my Mum in the afternoon, back for a quick cuppa (while I stuck a casserole in the oven, and then off to collect my daughter and a trip to Hobbycraft. As Shiona is also a stitcher I always enjoy my trips there with her even if we do not buy anything. Got some card making bits, some Mill Hill Beads I needed for a gift and some DMC thread which I was short of when I tried kitting up the HAED chart I am going to do for Shiona. She is stitching "Chess" and I have promised to do "Such is the way of Fairies", as we are both slow stitchers she may get them on her wall in 10 years time, but I am quite looking forward to the challenge.

I also wanted to share with you Just Nan - Primrose Path which I finished a few days ago. I have now done seventeen blocks towards my quilt. I have no idea how many I will need in all but think it is going to be a lot more than I have so far.
