I have been a good girl this week and sorted out my DMC threads, put them all on bobbins and in numerical order in my boxes.
I have been soooooooo bad, I have had two new starts and not touched Temptation, oops. But one of my new starts is a finish - yay. I absolutely loved stitching this one.

Little House Needleworks
We've had lovely weather here over the last few days and today I have been out in the garden stitching in the sunshine, bliss.
This is going to be my weekend project. I have decided whilst I want to keep stitching on Temptation as I love stitching it I also need a bit of a break. So Monday to Friday I will stitch on Temptation and at the weekend I will continue on this, Little House Neeldeworks Simple Joys. The plan was to stitch an ornament but all the patterns I have I don't have all the necessary threads for so hence the DMC sort out. I most annoyed with myself to find that I obviously don't fill in the chart I have of DMC threads as I have three, yes three, of some of the threads, so as Simple Joys was all ready to go I started it lol.
Kate of http://katesflossbox.blogspot.com/ very kindly sent me a christmas bauble for me to put my orts in at Christmas. I left a comment on her blog asking her where she brought hers so she sent me one, Just Because, as she put in her card. Thank you so much Kate. It was very kind of you. I was so thrilled because I now don't have to throw my orts away this year which I didn't like last year. She said the bauble looked sad empty and so has put two varigated threads and some ribbon in it. I have already some ideas for the thread and ribbon, so looking forward to using these. Thank you again.
Until next time, happy stitching
