A Proud Day

For the record, I am about to brag big time!

I am so proud of our eldest daughter, Miss A. She is studying photography and creative advertising at Uni and has just designed and printed a fashion book for one of her assignments. It is a coffee table book and it looks amazing! She did all the photography, styling and text and I am so, so proud of her.

She used Discus on Demand in West Leederville to print the book. They did a very professional job on very short notice, for which she is extremely grateful.

I also wanted to show you the beautiful stitched postcard that I received from Lin last week. She was the winner of my Gail Pan Christmas book giveaway and she sent me this to say thank you.

This is the first time I have received a stitched postcard, or seen one up close. I'm amazed at how well it survived the journey from France. Thank you Lin for such a lovely gift. Lin has already completed one of the stitcheries from Gail's book, which you can see on her blog post from 30 October. It looks lovely.

I started quilting my jelly roll quilt today. It took me an hour and a half to stitch one full motif and I had quite sore shoulders afterwards. Luckily monofilament thread is quite forgiving and I think the motif actually looks quite reasonable from the back of the quilt. My DH is going to spend some time with Miss M tomorrow and give me a chance to do more on it. So, I will be starting Friday Night With Friends early :)

Can you believe there are only 2 more FNWF nights to join in with this year? If you would like to take some time out and stitch with us before the Christmas rush sets in you can sign up at the lovely Cheryll's blog, Gone Stitchin'.

See you there!
