Longest, no wait a minute, Shortest Day SAL...

On Friday (22nd June - a day late due to a too busy day on the 21st), I stitched on The Ice Skaters for the Down Under version of the Longest Day SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching.  Unfortunately, I didn't get as much stitching done as I would have liked on the Friday either as TraderVic whisked me off to choose ovens and cook tops for the Back House (you can read all about Grand Designs Eaglemont here, if you are curious as to what I am talking about) but more about that in my next Grand Designs Eaglemont update.  You have come for the stitching, so here it is:

Unfortunately, I have a busy weekend coming up - more cupboards to go through and boxes to pack today, Aqua aerobics and then off to dinner with friends in St Kilda and then to see Paul Capsis at the Memo Hall.  And then, tomorrow, we are doing the Shortest Lunch in the Yarra Valley all day!  So, I am not expecting much stitching to get done at all until mid next week sometime.

But, I am not complaining - it  is all part of the fun of life!

hugs, 

P.S. To all of my Girl's Nest Giveaway #6 Winners, I am still packing and writing up labels - hope to get them posted off very soon.

Pink ice skater girl can show her stuff now! Are separate ovens/cooktops common down under? I don't often see them here though they do exist. Packing boxes is progress too! :D
