Happy Thursdays Darlings!
Well I have certainly taken quite the break. In fact I'm pretty sure I haven't touched a needle in almost 2 months or more. Well that has all changed. Nantucket has been waiting patiently for me and over the past couple of days I've slowly been filling out the house. Believe me looks are deceiving... there are TONS of little stitches in there. But it's looking good so far :) My mojo is back in gear people! (And yup that's the Career's section of the classifieds in the background...)
I also have to mention the spring exchange that I did a while back with Stitched with Love Exchanges. There were a couple of tense moments when the package I sent took quite a bit longer than expected to arrive, but everything turned out in the end - *whew*!
This is what I sent to June:
June picked rabbits as the theme of her package so I thought Mr. Peter Rabbit was very fitting. The original pattern didn't have a border but I thought it needed one so I added one myself :)
And this is what I received from Dawn:
I just loved all the little treasures she sent to me especially the cookie cutters and cake themed chart :) Right up my ally!
Apart from that, while I've had no luck on the job hunt so far, I have been MEGA busy. All I've done for the past month is house building prep. 3 weeks of which was burning all the brush and trees on the land that will hold our future home… painstaking would be an excellent word to describe this process. Luckily I didn't have to do the cutting, which my lovely boyfriend and father have been doing.
|My land!!!! It's all dug up now :) As you can probably tell it was the beginning of April when this photo was shot - STILL SNOW ON THE GROUND!|

Well my lovelies, that's all for now. I've got a bit more to talk about but I'd better to save it until next time.
Lots of love,
