Happy Easter


Happy Easter to you all. This has been a real time of focus for me as I have been so ill recently but I do seem to be on the mend now. I have downloaded a new app on my phone called Abide which is a prayer app. I can really recommend it to those who feel burdened and unable to pray. I think it is wonderful and you can stream the prayers so that you can listen for a long time. I have been feeling out of sorts spiritually for a while and this app has really helped me refocus. Easter time is a good time  to reflect too on the goodness of God and the love of the Holy Spirit. 

I finished this Victorian Motto kit in a day or two. So quick to finish. I have a few others to do in my stash. It's not a great photo as the design is very long. I need to get a load of finishes framed!


I wanted to show you an update of Quaker Christmas as well as I am busy trying to get this old wip finished off. I am really pleased with how it is turning out. The red looks stunning against the fabric which looks slightly darker irl. The fabric is LL Vintage light exempler. Threads are Threadwork threads.


And I just can't resist taking snaps of this little cutie. 


Hope you have a very restful and blessed Easter whatever you do.
