On 5 June the theme was ”Sparkle(s)” and this ‘lady’ sure was covered in them!!  He/she was part of the evening’s entertainment at a work Christmas party that had a “Carnival” theme.

Then of course there is always those lovely stitching projects that have lots of sparkly beads and metallic braids offering extra sparkle 🙂

Viruses can be good :D

I still feel a little bit stunned and shell-shocked, but having 3 entire days of uninterrupted stitching thanks to a poxy virus means putting the final stitches into my Winter Queen … I still can’t believe it!!!  The photo doesn’t do her justice!  And this is one piece that will definitely be getting framed for my walls 😀
