I finished something!!! Here is Bent Creek's Swirly Sampler, which I stitched up in four weeks. I have done this as a gift for a very dear friend who is expecting twins in the next month. I still need to find an S shaped charm to attach for the letter S. The charm in the pattern is proving difficult to obtain, but I will be looking at the charms and notions in my local scrapbooking stores to see if I can spot anything appropriate. I am hopeful I will find something.

I loved this pattern. It was easy to stitch up, and has made me feel more inclined to tackle a few of those other WIPs which I have been avoiding.

It is stitched on Dragonfly Dreams Thyme jobelan, which came from http://www.dragonflydreams.com.au

Margaret, I see you already read my message regarding the S. Thanks again for your very kind offer.

That is lovely. I don't know that I would have the patience to do something as intricate as that, though (ironic, coming from someone who hand quilts her quilts).

Lovely. As a mother of twins (+1), I guarantee your similarly fecund friend will adore it!

(and because I'm runnign out of time, I thoroughly endorse everything you say in the post below about food. I have three kids and my husband and I work out of home full time butwe eat home made food, from scratch, six nights a week [the seventh is takeaway because, hey, I'm not a saint!!] and yes, menu planning is the key for us, too.)
