Tribal Butterfly HD

Yes! I'm proud to announce my first finish of 2008.....

I finished this just a few minutes ago & am so pleased with how it has turned out! My boss leaves on Saturday, so hopefully if the framing shop are on form, I should just be able to get it framed in time.

Yesterday Andy took me to the annual stitch show at Olympia, London and we had a great day. Funds are tight, so I wasn't able to have a splurge, but did manage to pick up a Daylight portable lamp at a bargain price. I've wanted a decent stitching lamp for ages and it seems perfect! I also picked up Cut-Through Noah's Ark which I have wanted for a while & the stitched model on display at the show helped persuade me as it has lots of sparkly threads in it! Being a magpie, I just couldn't resist! I also found some scissor sharpeners which will be very useful for all my scissors that have lost their 'snip'. There didn't seem to be as many stalls there as in previous years and I noticed that a couple of regulars that sell Miras and L&Ls weren't there this year. It was great to see lots of sparkly, colourful stitchy type things though.

I'm not sure what I'm going to pick up next.... perhaps a bit of Snow Princess? I'll have to see what is screaming at me the most!
