My Treasured Squirrel

Hi everyone,

I have really been looking forward to posting this week, but things have been sooo busy with my projects at work (integrating 2 big information systems and creating a database for statistical analysis!) that time has sped by and still no blogging. But, here I am, finally!

One of the reasons for my excitement is that I want to proudly show something to you that I received a gift in the post earlier in the week. As you can see from the photo above, it is an adorable and cute red Squirrel, complete with an acorn! This was made by my very wonderful friend Margaret. When I opened the parcel, it gave me a very warm feeling to know that she has so obviously gone to the trouble of making the gift especially with me in mind which makes the gift doubly great :-) Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and friendship, Margaret it means all the world to me. Now that I have your new address since the 'Big Move', I have sent you a little "quelque-chose" to enjoy (something I have made for you!) and a hand-made card which I really enjoyed making! So watch out for your postman in the coming week. I only posted it today, so it may take about 3 to 4 days to reach you.

This weekend I have been invited to a birthday party for my friend's daughter, who wants us to dress up in ball gowns, glitz and glamour! So I'm looking forward to putting on my best party gear and a good excuse for a dance and chat with some friends I haven't seen for a while, and of course celebrating Holly's birthday!

I will look forward to posting again over the weekend!

Much love and crafty-ness :-)

Hi Alison, I am having a problem with my profile slipping to the bottom of my blog - you had it earlier but you have obviously fixed it. Can you please tell me how you fixed the problem.
many thanks

Hi Alison,
I love your work and would dearly love to make the pirate cross stitch for my soon to be born great grandson. I live in Far North Qld Australia and cannot locate the pattern. Are you able to help in any way?
Kind regards
