This is how they used to be and then in their new home......
These are the 'guard dogs' keeping watch from above......
and here are the shelves....
Just to prove I have at least finished something, here is my Miss Mary Mack.
Aren't they lovely. I am planning on stitching La D Da ~ Tie that Binds which you can see here I think the Creme Brulee is the best option. What do you think?
Well, although it had been a while since we chatted, I did have a few things to talk about. Hope all is well in your worlds and as always, thanks for visiting with us.

While surfing some blogs this morning I came across this beautiful quote and thought of you .....

Yes, it has been a while since I dropped in to say hi hasn't it. Time flies. To be truthful though - I really lost my blogging mojo somewhere along the way. I hope I can find it again as it is always so lovely to keep in touch with fellow stitchers via our blogs. Sometimes though, other things become a priority. I have been stitching all the while but haven't had a finish as such to show this year.
I haven't actually forgotten that flower at the top but decided on changing the colour and still have to adjust that row. Actually, there has been quite a lot of adjustments with this one as I have changed most of the colours and messed around a lot with it. I am looking forward to finishing it and having it framed though as I really like it.
Sandra, Diane and I have been stitching Abigail Colby's Workbasket this year which for me is a big one. I am clearly a slow stitcher as some of the motifs on the basket top I am about to show you took me 10 hours to finish!!
I couldn't finish this post without showing you a photo of my beautiful boy shadow - Ben. He turned 5 year old earlier this month and I just took this photo of him enjoying the Autumn sunshine coming in through the door whilst 'meditating' on his old bean bag bed. He actually gathers the bean bag up between his front paws and sucks on it kind of like a baby with a comforter blankie. I always say he is meditating when he does it as he will lie there for quite sometime almost in a little trance like state. I think it looks very cute and often wonder if it stems back to his puppyhood when he suckled from his mother. I wish I knew :))

We have all made a start but with not much having been stitched at this stage I will leave photos for a later date. For now though, here is a photo of my bits and pieces all ready to go.... gorgeous Belle Soie silks, 40ct linen, and William Morris fabric for lining and backings plus the Nantucket basket . The coffee mug is a special William Morris one which was a gift from Sandra for both Diane and me (Sandra has one as well) so we can all have our cup of coffee whilst we stitch-along in different parts of the world. We each also have one of the boxes to keep our project in which was a gift from Diane and the diary is for keeping a track of how many hours we work on the project. Watch this space for future updates.
I have seen lots of snow photos on blogs and with very bad weather conditions in some parts of the world I thought I would show you a photo of my shadow Ben, which I took just before as he had a short wander around the garden in temperatures in the 30's (Celsius that is) He wanted to get back inside to the air conditioning quite quickly!! Hope the cold weather isn't affecting you too badly and you are able to stay warm, safe and cosy.
