Back home to the cold!

Well I couldn't stay in the Spanish sunshine forever and have arrived home to the cold weather with a vengeance.
This was the snowfall we had on Friday evening into Saturday morning.

Whilst I was on holiday I managed to get some stitching done on the Round Robin I have joined. There are 6 of us, so have decided to use one large piece of fabric. I divided it up into 5 inch squares and have started to stitch my square.

I can't show you any pictures of the stitching yet as I don't want to spoil the surprise of the designs just yet.

I have also signed up on the Autoship programme with Patchwork Rabbit for the LHN Little Sheep Virtues, really looking forward to receiving the first one.

I have spent the last 2 days reorganising my workroom. I have the small box room and need to keep on top of the space. I have far too much stash and am sure it will last me a lifetime, but I am off to the stitching show in Manchester in 2 weeks time so will need to make space! I never seem to get rid of anything just move it around to somewhere different.

Hope you are all keeping warm and enjoying your stitching.

Looking forward to the sunshine!

Morning everyone x

I have not been stitching over the last week as I have been busy packing for my holidays. Later today we go off to Spain for 10 days, escaping the cold temperatures here and hopefully going to some nice warm sunshine.
It will give me an opportunity to do some stitching whilst I am there and my new project is safely packed in the suitcase. I have been asked to join a Round Robin, this will be my first and I am really looking forward to joining in.
There are 6 of us altogether and I have decided to have just one piece of fabric, so whilst I am away I will divide it up and start to stitch my square.
I would have loved to have finished "Joy" whilst away but as it is on linen would need my magnifier lamp!

Hope you are all keeping warm wherever you are and have got back into your stitching now the holidays are over.
