Busy , busy

Hi everyone , I'm back.
 Sorry I haven't been around much , but last week we had the chance of a much needed holiday , so we took it very gratefully.
 A friend of my husband lives in Somerset , but was going away so offered us the use of their house .It was a lovely break for us all ,the kids got to go to the beach , and we had time to relax.

 I also took some stitching and finished the new bird start I mentioned . I really like it, even if it is a bit...unusual .
  This is "Emu" by Jill Oxton , from Jill Oxtons' Cross Stitch issue 35 .
 Started 8/7/12 , Finished 4/8/12 .

 I have made a new start since getting back , it will be a gift for the friends who let us stay in their house, not much done on it yet so I will show a pic next time .

 The travelling pattern is on its' way to Lindsay , so keep your eyes on her blog to see when it will be available again .


Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath
