Remember last week when I showed you my latest stitchery, 'Romeo Roses'?
I had just finished it...
The pattern should have been written by now, but something stopped me, so I stitched more of my new BOM while I waited for a revelation about my 'pattern writer's block'.
Clear as day, it came to me last night!
The colour of the threads I used just aren't *me*.
What to do?
I went shopping today and chose some lovely Cottage Garden threads, then retraced the design on hanky linen...
I'm already smiling.
Watch this space for a 'true to Jenny' version....
Block 2 of my new BOM, due out after Easter, is coming along nicely. I'm stitching "Tuesdaisy" at the moment.
I've also finished the binding on Shabby Roses 'Angels', but will have to wait for some better light to photograph it. So pretty.
I rose early this morning because I had to be at the airport by 7.30 to pick up a special visitor!
Since the very early days of Elefantz, Vickie has been a blog follower, and over time became a friend.
She had a 3 hour layover in Townsville today between flights, so we came back to my place for coffee, and our first ever face-to-face chat...
She's a gorgeous gal, lots of fun, down to earth, and darn pretty too!
Too soon we had to drive back to the airport for her flight home, but you never know, we may get to do this again one day. I certainly hope so!

A bit of news I didn't share yesterday was a fall I had in Coles supermarket when Blossom and I were out on Tuesday. I didn't see a green grape loose on the floor and slipped badly on it - imagine me doing the splits and then going down on my knee to stop any further 'splitting'...
I was able to walk again today as the swelling has begun to subside, but the colours certainly aren't fading yet.
What grieved me most was that the staff member Blossom approached after my accident was only interested in getting my name and address, and a statement of what had happened. I showed him my rapidly swelling knee, and was in obvious pain, but he did not offer a chair, nor an ice pack.
How very sad that paperwork was far more important than the person injured.
The manager has since called to see how I was faring, but an ice pack and a chair at the time would have helped a lot more.
Thank goodness I had Blossom with me - she is a wonderful helper.
Have a lovely weekend! Stitch lots, laugh more, and don't slip on any grapes!
