My wonderful friend Hannah stitched me a very cool bag. She got the material from a website with loads of different material patterns (she has some Tardis material) - I don't know the site, as wisely she has not told me! It was perfect timing, as the bag my cross-stitch was in had split on both sides, and this new bag is a perfect size. Look how awesome it is!:
My brother and his wife came over from New Zealand for a visit, and so our entire family met up at our mum's in Scotland (we both decided that the family meet-up was to celebrate our birthday!). It was really lovely us all being together, if not a bit manic having 9 people in one house! We went for a walk in the Cairngorms, and went up to the reindeer herd there. They're very used to visitors, so came over to us expecting food. They got a photo shoot instead!
We also spent time with my mum's dogs - Noodles the Poodle, and Misty. They were loving having a lot of people there to pay them attention!!
With all the activity, I have also managed to get some sewing done! Edging closer to another page finish - I think another week and I'll be there!
And I've filled in all the gaps on the front floor since these photos - just keep forgetting to get a photo!
Hope you are all well
