i am off today on one of my trips to hobart, they have been a regular happening over the last few years to visit family and friends. so while i am away, celebrate with me the writing of this 200th post and i will pick some winners out of the hat and you will receive a lovely gift. you have until midnight on april 30th.
i received an email today with words that i like and want to share, they sum up much of life to me, the way we live, the happenings along the way and our thoughts.
BELIEVE, HOPE, DREAM, LOVE, CREATE, BREATHE and LIVE.
TRY, THINK, RESIST, DARE and BE.
LUCKY, GOOD, BAD, DANGEROUS, SWEET, COLOURFUL, DIFFERENT, COY and SHY.
BE FREE, GIVE, DON'T DO IT, DO IT, CARPE DIEM, HELLO THERE and TRY AGAIN.
i started this diary with the encouragement and help from justine, when i had my shop ( thanks so much ) and i have continued with it because i enjoy the writing and expression it involves and the friends that make contact, thanks to all of you for reading and being interested, i enjoy the sharing.
this photo is not the best ever, but one of my friends last night had a project she had finished, a combination of embroidery and handpiecing. these girls were cross stitch patterns originally, with help from another friend they became embroidery patterns and made up into this lovely quilt.
i have packed my bag, taken some stitching of various types, will be staying with family and also seeing good friends
deb, jane and i have been friends for years now and though we all live in different states, we meet up regularly in hobart, seems to be the common ground, so next sunday is another such meeting to look forward to, we will sit and look at this view and have a drink and there will be alot of chatter.
so while i am enjoying another hobart, tasmania trip, leave me a message and you could be a winner, let me know what your favourite form of stichery is so i can match up a gift to suit you. it has been a happy journey to post 200 ! ! !
