Some surprise post these past few days for me, so I’ll start off with saying thank you . . . to Flo, who always remembers me on her travels, and sent a selection of bookmarks. Some from as far away as Bali.

Annie doesn’t have a blog, but belongs to a cross stitch group in her local area. This design is by Renato Parolin.
I managed some stitching too, working on another freebie kit (from the March 2010 issue of CrossStitcher magazine).
It’s a design by Lucie Heaton. And I’m already playing around with fabric, wondering how I’m going to finish this little kokeshi doll off.
