~ She is finally finished ~

Yes, after all this time, I am very happy to post that my stitching project from back in 2010, a SAL I did with Sandra and Diane, is now complete.  The actual stitching was finished in 2010 but Abigail Colby work basket and accessories, sat patiently in a drawer waiting to be assembled and I have just completed the mammoth task. Yippee, can you feel my relief....She was a daunting thought but happily I can report to have managed to finish her and here she is.....

She is stitched on 40ct linen with Belle Soie thread and I have posted individual photos of each piece here in my Picasa albums if you would care to take a closer look.

Now to finish my other long awaiting WIP and I will be even happier lol!!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

~ Today is My Birthday ~

Gidday.....Ben here, aka on Mum's blog as 'My Shadow'.(that means I am Mum's shadow)

Today is my birthday.  I am seven years old today.  I think if I was a human that would make me about 49!!

Anyway, Mum made me special treats for my birthday... some Banana and carrot cookies.  I could smell them cooking last night when she was baking them and they smelled GOOD!!

Here is a picture of me waiting.  I was very good and never jumped up to take any.  Mum says I am always good like that.  I don't take things off the table or the counter.

Then later, me and my bestest mate Indy got to have one and here we are waiting until we got the word to say it was okay to take them. Mum said we were both very good.

 You  will notice my tongue  is ready to go. Yum, we love banana and carrot cookies.

Mum said it is polite to say thank you so 'thank you' to anyone who takes the time to visit our blog.
