Cottage Garden

.... Threads Collectors Club has started.

I knew they were in stock so just had to go and get mine.
Such pretty colours. I just know I am going to love this Club.

As well as a sweet stitchery designed by Brenda Ryan of Thimblestitch there were instructions
for a "Progressive Sampler"  The perfect excuse to spend a little time with my new threads.

I even got to learn a new stitch, with the help of Mr. Google.
I am looking forward to the next installment already :o)

It was also a big morning here yesterday, well for me.
These 4 all went to school!

I took a similar photo last year when Lily had her first day at Kinder so this year I had them
recreate the original shot.  I'm also thinking that if I leave Lily next to my 6'+ teenager then 
she will appear to be my baby just that little bit longer.

I've also kept up with my Photo 365 Challenge.

Wow January went fast but I am so pleased that February is here.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oooh, thanks for the heads up re the CGT club - I have FB messaged my LNS already to see if she can join up.

  2. Such a gorgeous family and great idea to put her next to your tallest. She still looks tiny.

  3. Those babies grow too fast don't they? Mine is 23 this year and I look up to her (when in bare feet) but she is still my baby! I love those threads and I can imagine how wonderful it would be to play with them.
