My very special friend Dale has made for me this gorgeous wall hanging (how cute are the sayings)...all these little stitcheries have velcro on the back so all I need to do it remove one and add the one that is appropriate for that day...and when not in use they live in the little bag....Day-day is one of those rare amazing people that come into your life and truly make your life so much better, I would be lost without her, she is always there, she is 'priceless'....I feel so privileged to have her in my life....and once again thank you so very much for all the beautiful emails I have received for my birthday...hugs to you all.

Once again I would like to thank everyone for their lovely comments the past couple of days on our Cyber Stitching day, I do hope you enjoyed the photos...when I did post some photos of what the girls stitched I was asked about the plastic that was being used....well this stuff was supplied in our cyber stitching kits by Karen at Mrs Martins Quilt Shop...and it looks just like plastic...what you do is trace your design onto the plastic with a waterproof pen, no need for a light box, it is easy to trace onto....tack this to your piece of fabric, I still use a stabilizer on the back....then you start stitching, I tend to stitch quite tight that is why you see some pulling in the plastic, it is nice to stitch thru, the needle goes thru very nicely...once you have completed the stitchery just soak in a little warm soapy water and the plastic dissolve, dry and press and there you go....this would be fantastic for dark fabrics.....enjoy your day...
Oh I forgot how good was "Australian Idol" last night and what about Wes, just so talented, I voted for him several times, yes I am 50 and I vote in Australian Idol (do I have a problem!!!) who cares....
