Debbi has used beautiful Silkweaver fabric in a colour called 'Days Gone By'. It's the most wonderful fabric to work on. I have never used an Silkweaver fabric before, but it's so incredibly soft and easy to work on.
The only other stitching I have worked on in my LHN exchange for Hooked on Exchanging. I can't show a picture of it yet, not until my exchange partner receives it.
By the way, if you haven't left a message yet for my blogavesary giveaway, you still have a few days left. I have picked the design and finish I am going to stitch for the first name drawn, a great pattern and thread package for the second name drawn and a pattern for the third name drawn.

By Saturday afternoon she seemed to have improved somewhat, so we planned for a lovely drive and picnic on Sunday. We travelled down to Mittagong, Berrima and Bowral and had a look around there. The weather was a little bit on the drizzly side and cold, but just perfect for us. Aurelia wore her beanie I made and was the talk of the town. Everyone we passed commented on how great her beanie was. After a good look around, we headed a little further along to Fitzroy Falls, to see the beautiful waterfall. Although the fog was really thick, we still had a great view and there was where we had a lovely picnic lunch. On the way home, we decided to stop in at the train museum at Thirlmere. Aurelia was just so excited and wanted to ride on the train. Unfortunately this weekend the trains were not running, but she climbed up into one of the steam engines and sat at the drivers seat, turning the wheels and pulling the leavers and 'driving' the train.
Over the last week I have also been able to get a whole lot of stitching done. I completed the squares for my Fair & Square Round #7. I tried a very different design this time and I found I really enjoyed stitching it. I will post pictures as soon as my exchange partner receives them. I also dedicated the last week to catching up on my Bent Creek Red Thread SAL. I am almost caught up. I have completed my January, February, March and April squares and have almost completed my May square. These are really fun to stitch and I just love the colours.
My one year blogaversary is coming up in a less than a months time, so I would like to have a giveaway as a thank you to all those people who regularly visit my blog. So if you would like to receive a gift, perhaps a surprise chart, thread or a stitched item, please leave a comment on my blog indicating your preferences and I will be drawing three names on the 4th of July and then posting the names of the winners on my blogaversary date.
