Oh no......more distractions!

As if Pinterest wasn't enough of a time waster  source of inspiration for me, I've discovered another wonderful site just for crafty people. WARNING - if you don't want to fritter away hours at a time please do not read the next sentence which has the name of the site,and jump to the next paragraph! The site is called Craftgawker.com and has loads of wonderful things to drool over. Please do not blame me for all those hours that will just disappear once you log on! 

Anyhoo, on to some stitching. I still seem to be finding it hard to get any stitching time, I really must make a plan and carve out some 'me' time! Here's my update on Simple Treasures....


I'm hoping to really get lots of it done next week....fingers crossed!

Yesterday, the postie delivered this months World Of Cross Stitching magazine. And true to form, it's another doozie of an issue with some fantastic designs to add to the old to-do list! Here's my mermaid design from this issue ....

World of Cross Stitching Issue 205
Immediate Media Co.

....hope you like her!

I'm off to try to get a few more stitches into Simple Treasures before Mum's Taxi service is required....again!


Until next time...happy stitching!
