Exits and Entrances

It’s winter! This morning I heard the kookaburras laughing in the trees out in the park behind us. That definitely is a winter signal for this neck of the woods. Today, for the first time in a week, it’s not raining. It’s been great to have the rain, though we could have done without the mini tornado last week (which happened only a five minute drive from us!) and the two storms, which caused quite a bit of damage in the South-West region.

All that rain has kept me indoors, which means that I have a few things to show 🙂

First off, a finish…

Maggi Co’s Village 1

Village 1 closeup

Design: A wonderful village 1, Maggi Co’s Village
Fabric: 36 count white Newcastle linen
Thread: DMC as charted 

Secondly, a new start…

Adam & Eve Sampler

Design: Adam & Eve Sampler, The Historical Sampler Company
Fabric: 32 count Stoney Grey Taupe Belfast (my choice of fabric)
Thread: DMC as charted 

Would you believe it, this will be my very first A&E sampler! I’ve admired many an A&E sampler on other blogs, so looking forward to having my very own.

Happy Stitching 😉

    I really like your finished project and I’m intrigued by your next start! I’m not sure if I envy your position in the world right now. Maybe the weather. I live in the desert and in my neck of the woods we had 95f heat. Whenever it gets this hot, I wonder if I should be on the opposite end of the world. Thanks for the lovely pictures of your finish!
