Apples and pears
Wanted to share some more cross stitch that i have done. These are past items that i made a couple of years ago. I am happy to say that i love each and every cross stitch item that i have made. These were a set and the shading is really beautiful. They look really realistic and i can picture them in my home for years to come. I apologise if you are blinded by the flash on the glass...
Otherwise i am enjoying my three day week and am glad that tomorrow is friday. I hope to see a friend on saturday but really want to keep it low key this weekend (do i say that every weekend??) Just to share that i had three great buys at the thrift shops. I bought two beautiful aprons at R15 each. The one is handmade and beautifully embroidered. Then i got a white cotton table cloth with hand embroidered flowers in cross stitch all around in a really ornate border for only R25 (about R7 to one Dollar for my overseas visitors....) I will post pictures of them. I always get sad when i think that someone worked so hard on something and it gets sold in that fashion. Knowing the work that goes into an item like a tablecloth it really represents weeks if not months of work...... But now it will be re-loved, i promise!!
All is well in my corner of the world. I am time strapped as always but that never changes.... I had a hard mothering day yesterday when i wanted to lose it all the time but am determined to keep my cool tonight. The reality is that the little W's dont understand when their Mama is stressed and tired.... So patience is my new mantra!!!!
Kind thoughts to all of you!
