What's a girl to do?

The Tooth Fairy is back! .... After 2 years of retirement this little tooth fairy has dusted off her wings and gone back to work ... (on a casual basis!)

I've headed up north for a week to help out and now I'm entrenched in a motel room .... surrounded with stitching projects .... but what do I do first?

I have a old x-stitch ... its a family tree ..... plenty of time to work on that one .... I don't have son-in-laws or grandchildren to fill the spaces!...
The last time it was out, was 2010 on a trip to Port Douglas ... So I guess its a long term project.

 I could work on my SAL project for this month ....  I've switched the penguin for a robin.

Then there is my EPP (english paper piecing) project ... Sue Daley's,  'This goes with That' .... It just keeps growing ... great to do on the run.

While I'm all nice and cosy up here in Inverell ... my kitchen at home is non existent, but I finally have a stove (yes it is blue!) .... after 10 months ..... just can't wait to cook a baked dinner .... or bake a cake! 
Hopefully my electrician has connected it!

At least I have polished floorboards and a new ceiling.

Also a finish last week ... It has only taken 12 months to stitch the binding down ..... I think Cardy can beat that!
Its called Wine and Cheese by Open Gate.

Just to finish off .... .Jonquils in my paddock on Monday morning ..... just so cheerful .... and what a brilliant sky!
Till next time
Cheers Floss

  10. So you went back to work
    When you say you had no really meant NO kitchen!! Can't wait to see what your new kitchen will look like.
    Oh and stitching - are you sure you took enough??

  11. Will you have time to go to work during the day with all those stitching projects to do?? Love the new stove and hope it's all ready to use when you get back..I think I would need some lessons to be able to use it.
