Stitchin' and stashin'

Not much of either going on at the moment . Half term holiday has curtailed my normal routine , but not too bad . We've had some nice days visiting , going to the library , crafting , and a visit to the Kids Club .
On the stitching front , when I've had chance and inclination I've worked on my Greece square . This is how it looks now . I'm hoping to get it finished this weekend . I got most of my order from Thread Bear . They're still waiting on one of the charts I ordered , and will send it on later . I have to say , their service is fantastic , they only charge postage at cost, and their threads are cheaper than some other ONS ' . And it comes all wrapped up nice , lol.

So , I got LHN Winter Band Sampler . I fell in love with this the first time I saw it , and in the end I just caved in and ordered it . Also , some threads for Bent Creeks' Winter Row .

I just need lots more time to stitch .

Thanks for dropping by ,

Cath

The sampler looks gorgeous Cath. I bet you can't wait to get started on it. Glad your half term went well. We've been staying with my MIL for a few says but we're home now. Have a great weekend.

Greece is coming along nicely Cath, I too had a tissue wrapped parcel from Thread Bear this week, how is it when I buy tissue and try and wrap parcels like they do it never works.
