Seriously, It's May Already?

Time got away from me in the last couple of weeks.  Haven't picked up my needle since the "OMG, it's 3am" post.

I had every intention of finishing both the L and the June sampler by the end of this week but as the saying goes: The best laid plans of mice and men...

I finally got some stitching in today and finished my cheeky little monkey...


He's number four of a set of six.  I'm planning on turning them into a cube for a friends baby boy.   Only two to go - a bright blue parrot and a cute yellow snake.


It's Mothers Day in Australia tomorrow. DH raided my wishlist at 123stitch and ordered a pile of beads and threads that I had on the list!  I think he picked a new chart too.  They should arrive by the end of the coming week - exciting!  Probably worthy of a blog photo, 'cause after all, how many of us don't love admiring a pile of sparkly bits being added to the stash!


  1. Cute! It's nice to do something simple after the June Sampler.

    Saw your Newton pictures. Do you get World of Cross Stitch as they have a Newton chart in every issue?

  2. My Newton's came from WOCS, Jo :)

    So do these little animals!

  3. So cute!

    Did you receive now your DH's gifts? How sweet of him.


  4. Hey Kirstin,
    Your monkey is just darling as well as the others. This is going to make such an adorable cube for the baby.

    Your are a lucky girl to have such a sweet husband. Can't wait to see what you get!

    Bobbie :)

  5. I'm still waiting Bobbie but I think they'll arrive by mid week!
