Cheryll hosted Friday night with friends last night so it was the perfect opportunity to start this month's Chateau Hexagon block. I got as far as appliqueing the wheelbarrow and started the stitching.
Yesterday was also my birthday and I was spoilt with lovely gifts from family; phone calls; a lunch date with my three sisters and a niece. Paul looked after dinner and I had got Jack the Giant Slayer from the DVD store so I was able to settle in to my evening of stitching.
Look at the wonderful gifts in the second photo that I received from Leanne. She had even wrapped the parcel in a gorgeous spotted ribbon. Thank you Leanne, I love everything and you helped make the day special.
The last swap for Mrs Martin's lets celebrate was a morning tea swap and Michelle sent me two lovely house mug rugs with the pretty tag and teabag. Since tea is my go-to drink, I can confirm they are getting lots of use! I made Michelle the Tea Time mug rug which is a free pattern here. Then just for fun I made her the crochet mug cosy from Mollie Makes magazine, issue 7. I'm not sure how useful it is but I thought it was kind of cute!
We are enjoying spring-like weather here today, it has been such a mild winter. Lovely. Wendy xx
