How time flies !!!!

I heard from my Winter Wonderland swap partner last week that her parcel had arrived. These are 2 of the things i sent.
 A wallhanging from Kaaran's First Friday Freebies. The other is a mug rug with an embroidered snowman.
I was recently inspired to drag out a kit i've had for quite a number of years & trace it out. This is the kit
No problems you say? Well it is a tad had to trace when this happens
Bella thought i'd turned the light box on for her to sleep on. :) But i did manage to get it all traced.
Meanwhile i've been working on this
& this,
Last weekend was our annual retreat. As usual the food was to rave about & the company fun & fabulous. Thanks ladies for the great weekend. Took the camera but was to lazy to take photo's. :( I did work on this
but discovered a little problem with the iron on bits so all i could do was sew the pieces together for the bag. Next i added the borders to Michelle's stitchery which i'd finished last week.
It just needs the backing & binding now. I made a bag whilst out there. Love the size of it.
Made from charm squares & it's huge.

A while ago on Better Homes & Gardens Fast Ed made Labne Cheese. Today i have finally gotten around to trying it out.
Just 3 ingredients into the bowl.
 All whisked together & into the fridge for 1/2 an hour.
Ready to hang to drain overnight. Now i'm off to make Limoncello & a nice batch of Pea & Ham soup in the slow cooker.

Happy Stitching,
