Thank you very much Jo, it is all lovely and I feel very spoilt.
However, this wasn't the only treat the postman bought. There was another parcel with a post stamp from DMC! Hubby asked what I'd been ordering now and I honestly replied "nothing!" It was very exciting. It turns out that I had won the spring DMC/Cross Stitcher competition and the envlope was stuffed with four charts/kits.
There's a gardening bag kit and an orchid kit (bottom two shown) and then two charts by Kate Knight (Timless and Lacy Flowers). I've been smiling all day, it was such a suprise. I don't think they are charts I would have chosen, but I'm sure I will enjoy them. I officially have unplanned for stash for the first time. I usually buy things and do them.
Anyway, off to finish the July Juggy Bug square now, before August is issued tomorrow.

Tuesday today, so I might get out the Bouqet for Cheryl and try to make some progress on that tonight.
I think my parcel for the Christmas in July exchange arrived today, but we were out at the cinema watching the 2nd Narnia film, so I'll have to go and pick that up tomorrow. (It was a great film though!).

While I was away Rachael has given my blog an award.

My eldest has been stitching a bookmark with her name on and she has nearly finished it now. I can't quite remember when she started it, it's taken her so long. She's taken it into school today to show the class at show and tell. If she does actually finish it soon I'll post a pic.

I'm still really enjoying Celtic Winter and she now has hair. I don't really like to take her with me to the children's swimming lessons etc so I'm also stitching a Wabbit as my "on the move" piece.
Hope everybody is doing well and thank you for visiting.

As you can see I couldn't resist adding a few beads just to see what they are like. I'll leave the rest to the end now as they will get in the way of the frame as I work. I am still really enjoying this.
