I had the loveliest Sunday this week.
A bike ride up the mountain with Mr E and our friends Michelle and Dave.
Followed by a lazy afternoon of stitching, and then a fabulous night at church.
Of course even on the best of days silly things can happen to spoil things.
When our church service began, the lights dimmed for the praise and worship. We stood up and I bent down to move my Bible and purse under the chair, but in the dark I didn't notice the back of the chair in front, so my nose took a rather hard bump, continuing to bleed for the next 90 minutes of the service.
Now I have this very tender brand across the bridge of my nose.
Still, church was great, and I'm sure my nose will recover, but I'll be sure to look before I bend over next week!
Monogram Monday and it's R this week...
R is for Reynolds, relaxation, riding, and "rrrrrreally silly things to do in the dark".
You can download "R" HERE.
Well, what a huge response to my free "All Wrapped Up" design last week!
If you missed it, just click on the Freebies button up there under my blog banner.
I've just finished writing and formatting the next issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine, and I think it might be my best yet!
The projects are really sweet...
I've also added a new section, Hints For You, and this month I'm focusing on a question I get asked every week - "how do you sew such a neat backstitch?"...
...I even have a simple step by step tutorial we'll practice on!
Just for fun, and adding to the cute umbrella theme of the Dolly Quilt & Bag set, I've also put one of my older patterns in this issue...
...plus another new section, "On My Bookshelf". This month I'm reviewing two of my favourite craft books!
To top this month off we'll enjoy a nice long chat with designer Michelle Ridgeway who has the sweetest little bear stitchery to share with you...
The cover is looking good, and the magazine is right now in the hands of my trusty proof readers.
Not long to go until publishing day!

Have a lovely week ahead!
I'll be resting up for a day or two, and maybe stitching.
Maybe? Ha. You know me better than that.
