A Gorgeous Sunday

It is a stunningly beautiful day today,
 it is even hard to trawl through days and remember one quite as nice.
 A gentle breezes kisses the tops of the tallest trees,
everyone wants to stop what they're doing and soak up the heat.

I must remember to thank you all for all the good wishes I received on starting my new job. 
I was treated to a lovely morning tea on my first day, to welcome me.
And I find I'm working with a lovely group of people.
I am left wondering what's happened to my leisurely life of crafting!
However I managed to finish stitching my addition to Patty's project.
I used some vintage Coats 60 crochet cotton to embellish her piece.
So now it's finished and will go in the mail.
It's the last of the five stitching projects, so it means mine will return home soon
and I'll get to see what gorgeous things Patty, Linda, Nathalie and Margaret added to mine!
The countdown begins!

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend!
Carole :))

Didn't the Manawatu just turn it on, yesterday?? We lulled in the sun and made fairy dolls with my neighbour's daughter and Jason. :-)
Your work is supremely perfect, my friend. I love the close ups.
So glad you have lovely people to work with. The working day takes up so much of your time and you want it to be spent with pleasant people!!
