A Update On My Cross Stitching & An Exchange Envelope Received

Well many many many posts ago I showed you the beginnings of a sampler that I was doing.............this was it back in late January 2010

Well this is it now.

While I admit to being a slow stitcher I have also been doing other things in between.
And now for something totally different. I belong to a great group on Yahoo and we often do exchanges.  Well for the Easter Swap I had Nancy and this is what I received from Nancy.....
The picture does not do justice to the card that she made, this women is one talented card maker and I love getting cards from her.

It Wasn't Raining Men

but it was raining big ass hail stones and heaps of rain.  Yep Perth has finally broken its drought but at the expense of homes and cars being damaged.  This storm cell moved across Perth City at 4pm and yes guess who was waiting for the bus outside work and was crammed into a bus shelter with about 20 other people...ME!  The hail was not coming down vertically but was sweeping in sideways and it was not pleasant.

I managed to out run the storm all the way home but as soon as I got inside the front door it arrived. The MOTH was out driving in it and I had to contend with 2  very freaked out dogs and the water level rising around the house.  The thunder and lightening was amazing, the airport was closed and the rain just pelted down for a good hour or so.  They reckon Perth airport got 25mm in 10 minutes, for some of you that may not sound like much but for us people who live in arid Perth and very close to the airport that is a hell of a lot.
Come 6pm the skies were clear again and the humidity was back. You are probably wondering why I am posting about this but if you lived in Western Australia you would understand, we tend to get very excited about the first rain after summer LOL.

Okay, I am also going to post some craft updates as the page addition tabs at the top are only for static pages and you can't comment etc, so can't really find out what use they would be :-)

 Here is a small finish that is also going into Easter Exchange package heading to the US.  The chart was a freebie that I got off the internet and I used WDW, the colours look better in person than what came out in the picture, as they are very pastely and easter looking.

Here are a couple of dishclothes that I have finished in the last couple of months. The first one is a valentines theme for the February KAL
And this is one of the ones for the March KAL but this is going into an Easter Exchange parcel which is going to a wonderful friend in the US. The colour doesn't come out great in the photo but it is called Mango and is fabulous.

Changes to Blog

Okay there have been some changes to my blog curtesy of Blogger.  I now have tabs across the top and I will be blogging under the relevant tab.  My homepage (front page) whatever it is called will be for my constant stream of babble.

Oh and for those of you who were following my trade blog, I will now be deleting it and having a seperate tab for it over here.

Okay I will now be resuming normal broadcast.....................................

Still Here

Yep, I am still here and just didn't realise how long it had been since I had blogged.  Perth was still sweltering in summer heat high 30's - 40's late last week and we were promised a cooler change over the weekend.  Well it did get cooler but the humidity was shocking I half expected to walk outside and find that my house had been transported to the jungle and my yard would look like this image at the top of this post. LOL

Any way on the crafting front I do have some knitting and cross stitch pictures to post but need to find the damn camera cable so once the cable is found I can upload some new pictures.

I am also involved in a couple of exchanges and can't post pictures yet about what I am doing as it might ruin the surprise but I can tell you one is an Easter Exchange and the other is a pincushion exchange - so stayed tuned for updates on these.

Well off to catch up on all your blogs and see what you have been doing over the weekend and I just want to say keep your blog posts coming as the inspiration and humor is a joy to read.
