Week 4 - 24th January

Leaf's goal for January has now been met.  So I can relax a little and stitch on which ever one takes my fancy.  Leaf now has her shoulder joined up and the spiderweb looks fabulous.

I worked 13.21 hrs on her this week.

One thing when working HAED's - I hate seeing missed colours when I am stitching. I am always pleased to have those gaps filled in.  I also love to run my hand over the stitching - it feels wonderful.......LOL.

Pricless Moment this week
 Friday evening a group of us decided to have a BBQ dinner at a place called Point Danger.  It overlooks the ocean and is on the border of NSW/Qld.  We set up a screen and when it got dark we show the film called "Indescribable" by Louie Giglio - I have never seen this before and it was one of the most amazing DVD's I have seen.It shows pictures of outer space and just how small Earth is in comparison to the universe.  It was such an awesome experience watching this - hearing the ocean, feeling a gentle breeze and seeing the stars in the sky and then to think that God who created this vast universe came down to this speck of dust Earth to die on the cross so that we might have eternal life.  I cried when they showed the picture of Jesus on the cross. Awesome moment.

I picked up Crabby Crush QS this week and managed 2 1/2 hrs on her.  There is lots of confetti stitching in her glove and this is a little slow going.  You can see her delicate little arm appearing.  I luv stitching on her.

GRRR Moment
I guess for every pricless moment there has to be a grrr moment.  There is a block of unit's being constructed a house block away and one day they had the radio blaring so loud it was unbearable.  We politely called out and asked them to please turn it down a little.  Their response "It's after 8am so deal with it."  Well we did deal with it and rang the local Council Building Department who then rang the Builders and made them turn it down or they would be fined.  We haven't heard it since then.  I always worry though about the workers trying to get back at us somehow.   I can never understand why they need the radio up so loud while they are making so much noise that they can probably only hear every second or third word.

They are both so beautiful and because of your stitching I am sorely tempted to start one. (sigh). I'm easily led. LOL!

Your "priceless moment" sounds just wonderful. :o)
