On Tuesday afternoon I thought I'd make the most of the sunshine and sit out in our garden and add some stitches to my Landscape WIP.
I managed to add just under 50 stitches before I had to go indoors (because even though I hate to complain) it was way too hot!
I did manage to add another 159 stitches once I got inside, there was a lot of confetti stitching in the last bit left on the left hand panel but thankfully it is now complete. I did manage to add a few stitches to the central panel which I am hoping will stitch up much quicker as there isn't quite so much confetti.
I had great fun at the workshop at Scrapbook Magic yesterday. All of the suitcases were made but I only managed to decorate one of them. I will try and get them completed as soon as possible and hopefully have them ready to share with you soon. For now though I will share Margarets photo of her suitcases. I will be using completely different papers.
They all stack nicely inside each other but I think it would be a shame to keep them like that. They could be used to store a variety of items or mini albums could be made and put inside, a record of all your holiday travels maybe.
Today I am travelling up to Taunton to meet up with Darnell of djkardcreations along with some of her other friends and bloggers. I am so excited at the prospect of finally meeting this kind and so amusing lady who has travelled over to our country to attend a crafting retreat in my home town of Swindon. What is also so amazing about the retreat (which I'm not attending) is that it is a company from Australia who are doing the retreat. The Happy Little Stampers are running their first UK retreat and I am sure they will have a great time and I hope to hear all about it from Darnell on her blog.
