Stitching away..

Well, I have finally found some time to do some stitching!  Although this was not the way I would really have liked to find time - but we have to look at the positives! I went outside Friday afternoon and grabbed an armful of firewood to put in the fireplace and stepped on one of the kids shoes as I walked in the door and twisted my foot.  Somehow I have managed to break one of the bones in my foot.  So I am now hobbling around on crutches and have to sit with my foot up.  So this of course, has given me a great excuse to do some much needed stitching!  So a forced 'break' (hahaha) but I have finished one of my stitching projects that I started about 12 months ago.  I really don't know why it has taken me so long to finish, as I have really enjoyed working on it and I only had a little bit to go to finish it. 
So here it is at last and I am really happy with it and plan to use it for myself to keep other stitchery projects, scissors, threads etc in.

This is 'The Two of Us' little carry bag, by Rosalie Quinlan designs.   

Happy stitching!
