  1. Your LHN finish is wonderful, and congrats on getting one step closer on Stitching Leporello! Looks like you had a fabulous vacation 🙂

  2. Great finishes, Anne – I really must attack my LHN Diary series. And aren’t those colours on Leporello just yummy? Enjoyed your pictures too – glad you had a good time.

  3. Hannah Purlington looks GREAT 🙂
    Did you have a swim in Mossman Gorge? I got up to my ankles – it was too B%#@ cold! But the kids jumped in and had a great time, no crocs in there 🙂

  4. I love Stitching Leporello. Must look into that one when it becomes available again.

    The wombat is cute. Can they be pets?

  5. All of your vacation shots are amazing! Wow!!! And congrats on some stitchy finishes. How exciting that you’re close to finishing the stitching for Leporello!!

  6. Congratulations on your “Hannah” finish – that was the first LHN Dear Diary piece that I finished – I just loved the theme!

    LOL at someone’s question about whether wombats can be pets. 🙂
