Today is the first day I have done any stitching in almost 2 weeks and I have finished 3 french hens.
I love the big red beads in the holly sprigs. My mother's holly bush was in berry when I was home and it just asked to be photographed.
I had a couple of parcels waiting for me when I returned filled with stitching goodies. I had ordered the kit for the Chatelaine design Walled Wisteria Garden and it had taken a long time for Cindy at European cross-stitch to get all the floss but it had finally arrived. I am going to stitch this on baby powder blue 32ct Jobelan from Stitches and Spice. I have had the fabric for ages, but I will not start this one straight away as I have too many other things to do at the moment.
There are some beautiful colours and textures with the flosses for this design.
I also had a parcel containing some more supplies for Chinese Mandala. I have some more flosses and all my beads and sparkly bits. I am still waiting for my Eterna silks and a few other flosses. (Now I just need to get stitching)
Finally, feet refers to my six days of walking through World Heritage wilderness in Tasmania. I have picked some photos which shows how lovely this part of the world is and I did enjoy not having a phone or computer for six days (but still had a bed, a shower and good food and wine)

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter.
