Happy Dance

YIPPEE! Craig is home! I've missed him so much. He came home bearing lots of pressies, which is only right when I was left at home while he buggered off on holiday. Am now the owner of SIX new paperweights for my collection...

I also have some new slippers, two china thimbles and a new watch. My old one gave up the ghost last week so I was really happy with a new one. Another reason for happy dancing is the fact that I have finished this...

Elizabeth Designs - Blue Sky Sampler

Ignore the white marks on the material, it's just the stuff behind it while I propped it up to take the photo. I don't have the exact same charms that are called for on the chart, I just used what I already have. That big butterfly for instance is supposed to be a sheep, but I didn't have one of those and don't have the patience to wait for one that I order. So it's a butterfly instead. LOL.

I got another model in the mail this morning. Another one for Jo at Polstitches Designs, which will hopefully get going over this weekend. It shouldn't take me long to do.

Adore the sampler Jacqui, a bit different to the normal run of the mill ones, and so cheery looking.

Love your paperweights too - would say lucky you but I would kill Keith if he went of on hols and left me lol.

Blue Sky is lovely as well, haven't seen that design before, it's really different.
Hope you're starting to feel better now. Hugs

Blue sky is really nice - well done! I haven't seen that before. Awh bless your hubby he must have felt really sorry that you couldn't go, and it goes to show he must have been thinking about you a lot :)

Hope you are on the mend now!
Hugs

Love your new finish Jacqui. It's gorgeous.

Your new paperweights are lovely. How many do you have all together?

Hope you're feeling much better now.

I love that design. The butterfly looks great - much prettier than a sheep would have looked.
