Bent Creek, Home & Family TO BE FIXED, Summer Snapperland, Works in Progress

Shock, horror, a stitching post!!

I wish I could say that I was posting my first finish for 2010, but alas that appears to be a few days away yet … hopefully by the end of the week (or weekend at the latest) this one will be finished, stitching-wise anyway.  I don’t own the buttons/accessory pack for the border, so I’m having to order those, and while I’m at it I’m ordering the same pack for the Winter Snapperland as I’d really like to stitch that in the upcoming year.

In the meantime, here’s my current progress on Bent Creek’s Summer Snapperland – I’ve finished the final block, and am now working on the outside border.  I’m just marginally over half-way stitching the border, then it’s off to the waiting pile until the buttons etc arrive.

This last weekend Katie and I had a lovely weekend away – we drove over to Brenda and Nigel’s late Saturday afternoon (fantastic traffic – or rather lack of it – we were there in just marginally under an hour yippee!!), where we were greeted with an ice-cold Margarita on arrival.  We had another friend of ours from work and her two teen sons come to join us, and we were treated to Nigel’s culinary treats of one of his famous BBQ’s.  It was a really lovely night with good wine, good food, and really good company!  We stayed overnight, then yesterday toodled off to Castle Towers to see Avatar 3D in Gold Class … WOW, what an incredibly awesome movie – I was seriously blown away by it!!  One of the best movies of that genre I’ve ever seen, I’d have to say!

Eventually we headed back home again, after a detour via JB Hi-Fi for Katie to spend her Christmas prezzie vouchers, then we sat and watched Katie’s Dawson’s Creek DVD’s while I did a little bit of stitching.  I have to admit the characters etc are growing on me, and I’m enjoying the lighthearted viewing for a change, but it’s probably not a series I’ll ever re-watch again … but if nothing else, it’s getting me to sit down at the end of the day and get a few stitches into fabric, so that’s all good 😀

  1. It must be nice to be in the “home stretch” on your snapperland…Makes me want to pull out my “winter” one and get started!

  2. A stitching post may be a shock, Anne, but never a horror! 😀

    Congrats on an almost-finish. Hope the buttons arrive quickly.

    I’m just imagining your weekend away, a warm summer day with friends and a margarita – it helps me get thru the cold, gray day we’re having here.

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed Avatar. We are seeing it tonight, because one of Ken’s colleagues told him it was sensational. I was thinking it might be a bloke’s movie, but you ain’t no bloke, so it must be okay!

    1. It’s also a little bit romantic … I needed tissues towards the end 😛 Will be interested to see what you thought of it!
