Still here...

Firstly I must apologise for my long and unexplained disappearance. I hadn't meant to leave it this long but as we all know life gets in the way.
I completely lost my stitching mojo in a big way and it's only just starting to return now. It didn't help that the twins are now completely mobile and I need eyes in the back of my head, I also found out I was expecting again which was a complete surprise and has took a little time to get used to the idea. So with all of that going on and going to work, I've needed to sleep at every chance.
I'm feeling a lot better know so hopefully the updates will be more frequent, and I'll also be able to comment more on other people's blogs.

Now on to things stitching related. I participated in Exchanging with Beckysc. This was my first exchange in blog land and it was for a scissor keep. I don't know if everyone is the same as me but I got so anxious about what I was going to stitch and whether or not they would like it. I'd never made a scissor keep before and the finishing on it was quite ambitious for me and my humble skills.
I choose "Cottage Garden Scissor Case" from The Drawn Thread and my partner was Lynn.

The fabric that it's laid on is what I used for the lining. I was really pleased how it turned out.
I was fortunate to recieve a wonderful exchange from Sadie. It's a Prairie Schooler design and I just love it in every way.

Well I think I've gone on long enough and thank you if you made it to the end of the post. I have bought some stash lately which I will share another time with you.

Take care,
