Dreaming Mermaid, Patchwork and other stuff.

I have gone awol for a while as I have been frantically trying to finish this page on Dreaming Mermaid. Not quite finished it yet but should have it done by the end of the week. So here's my progress:
September update

Thought I'd also post a pic of Patchwork and the recent activity I have done on that. It is really growing now and I have not got much more to do before I get to the end of the row then I can start working downwards.

And here's the latest Loose Feather's which should be on it's way to me soon. Can't wait to get my hands on this one. I adore it.

And here's an extra just because I love her so much. My special girl in her ballet outfit!

I finally got the Thread Gatherer threads I bought from Thread Bear for my CdC which I have said I will start when I have finished this page on Dreaming Mermaid so hopefully I should have a New Start to show you on my next blog. I also received my Harvest exchange chart so I need to get the threads organised on it and make a start. I have finished my redwork exchange and will be sending it off in the next few days. I am really pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to show it off!! Just hopw the recipient likes it as much.

I am off to get some lunch then I will be catching up on all your blogs that I have missed last week. xx
