Oh my goodness.. I just noticed how long ago it is since my last post... I have been a very bad blogger so far this year, haven't I??
I have lots of little things to tell you this time around... where to start?
How about I start with what I did on Wednesday - that's as good a place as any to start especially as it was such an exciting day!
So what was so exciting about Wednesday do I hear you ask? Well, I met up with a fellow Aussie Stitching Blogger!! Kaye from Kitten Stitching!
Kaye sent me an email a couple of weeks ago to say that she was coming over to Perth for work and was wondering if there was a chance that we could meet up. As it happened I was taking some time off work this week for some much needed rest and relaxation... and stitching... so the timing was perfect. We agreed to meet up on Wednesday for lunch after Kaye arrived in Perth, and before her colleagues arrived and they had to start work.
We had a lovely couple of hours together chatting about also sorts of things... and amazingly we found out that we had quite a bit in common - not just stitching and blogging!
Once I knew that Kaye was coming for a visit I wanted to make a couple of little gifts to give her when we met. I wasn't sure what to stitch so I went through some of my stash and came up with a little Stitcher's Journal which was a nice quick stitch. I also decided to give Kaye a card that I had stitched previously and was just waiting for the right person to give it too.

How's this for thinking alike... Kaye wrapped her gift to me in orange tissue and I had put a bit orange ribbon bow on the box I gave to Kaye!!
And look at what gorgeous pretties were in the orange wrapping....

Thank you Kaye, your gifts are lovely. I had a lovely time meeting you for lunch and catching up in person. I hope that we can get the opportunity to meet up again.
I am going to leave my other updates for tomorrow... that way you will have to come back and visit again!!
Until then, happy stitching
