Time to post again

Hello my friends.
So glad that you have time for a visit.
It has been awhile so it`s time to post again.
 I`ve had some finishing to do.
I finished my Birthday stitching by the end of Feb
 and a few days later completed the needle roll.
So pleased :)
 But since then have been rather busy.
Last week my Mum had a mini stroke. 
She`s home now and on the mend. The first time for her at 80yrs to be on meds.
To give one of my sisters a break and be of help I stayed with Mum.
We did have a visit to A&E.
So glad I had our car!
Now some `Show and Tell`.
My BBD needle roll finished. 

I used this `Thimbleberries` fabric sent to me in a swap last year.
I may make something else to make a set.

The stitching pockets inside.

Felt needle pages attached at the end.
Now what project to use this for!

This was part of my gift from my friend Katrina.
Love it. Thankyou again Katrina.
So many lovely birthday gifts last month but so nice for gifts to come after.

An Easter parcel sent to my swap partner Maria
for `Let`s Celebrate Swap 2013`
Over Easter once this gift has arrived I will post on what`s inside.
Well time for me to get back to my stitching as
we have even days for hand held watering every second day with having a drought.
We are suppose to get some rain Sunday.
The nights are cooler with dew in the mornings.
Happy Stitching,
