Back from Holidays

We returned from our holidays in lovely British Columbia on Friday and then spent the next few days hanging out at home and just lazing about. It was fantastic. But alas we are back into the work groove now. And of course back online!
It was kinda nice to have 6 days of being offline and out of communication with pretty much the entire world at my Grandparents farm in BC. So peaceful.
A part of me is happy to be back and into the routine again. And another part of me wishes for that peacefulness all the time.

But alas that is neither here nor there as here we all are. :)

I will have pictures from my holidays up in the next few days when my B/F downloads them.
In the meantime I have a stitching update!

I worked primarily on this little witchy ornament while we were away. Did a lot of it in the car (as we drove 8 hours to our destination and back again). It is almost complete. Just need to backstitch the "No magic until I've had my coffee" part. It has been a joy to stitch. Looking at the black in this photo though I'm not super happy about the coverage.


Sorry that is the only quick photo we managed last night.

Coming up: I will have updates on my ducky and the Papillion SAL too (halfway through part 3 now). I will have those up a bit later in the week along with those holiday photos.

Hope you've all had a great past week and a half and I am catching up on blogs today so can't wait to see what you've all been up to!
