A Finish

Home of a Needleworker Too is finished.

Pattern by Little House Needleworks
Fabric: 28ct Antique Ivory Cashel
Threads:  Recommended Crescent Colours
Finished  April 17, 2011

I can't believe it's taken me 2 weeks to get a photo of this on my blog.  I caught a flu virus going around and spent a few days in bed where I was able to finish this.  Since then I've had DD on holidays where we did all the yucky jobs - dentist, optometrist - both all clear, haircut and flu vaccination in the few days before Easter.  We had a family BBQ here on Easter Saturday to celebrate my DBIL's 40th bday.  DH and I also celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on April 16.

DH went to Vancouver on Easter Monday and both DS and DD went back to school on Wednesday.  DH is on the plane now and will be home sometime tomorrow.  His flight was delayed leaving LA, and because this time he is flying back through Sydney he will miss his connecting flight so I hope he doesn't have to wait too long to get another flight to Brisbane.  He doesn't want to get home too late because tomorrow - May 1 - is DD's 10th bday.  Tonight I'm just waiting for her to go to sleep so I can wrap her presents.
