Well, that's how it's supposed to work, anyway. This is what greeted me when I woke:
NOT the kind of April showers you want to see. But then the mailman was knocking at the door, and in his hand was a package containing this:
From the lovely Fiona! If ever there was a day I needed this reminder, it was today! Thank you darling Fiona, I love it so so much, you have brightened my day and my sewing room forever. I had just been admiring this yesterday on her blog, lol! Her stitching is just perfection. And isn't the little bunny card cute??

Wow that's a long list. I hope there's something there to inspire you. How are you coming with your Christmas stitching? I haven't started mine yet. Queen of the Last Minute, that's me. I do have an idea buzzing around in my head for a tutorial though, hopefully I'll get to that in the next couple of days.
Please keep those in our Southern states in your prayers - over 240 tornadoes in the past few days in 6 states, at least 44 people have died. The damage is incredible. And there's another round coming. Be safe, wherever in the world you are!
