Santas of the World in traditional costume. Most of my cross stitches were done when I lived in Gove in Arnhem Land between 1977 and 1984. I raised 4 children and worked full-time in those days, not to mention putting up with Ed, too - just joking - they were some of the happiest days of our lives!
Mr Wind caused me a little bit of frustration - the detail in his beard just a little difficult!
For Mum and Dad - Mum is 92 now and has lived with us for over 10 years - one of the greatest loves of my life Dear Dad left us in 1983.
This treasure of Numbers has a partner, the Alphabet - it hangs on another wall in the Littlies bedroom and was picking up the reflection from the blinds.
I decided to call it quits after that - lots more to show - perhaps another day! I'm off to prepare some Liberty fabrics now to send to the Quilt Fairy to be cut into squares - I can't wait to go on a retreat the weekend after this and put my shoulders to the test doing some machine quilting. I'm really winging it with the Liberties and have in mind a very simple cuddle quilt just for me!
