We are preparing to go on holiday,  leave at the beginning of next week and will be away for three weeks traveling in the South Island, visiting some favourite places, some with childhood memories for me and some new areas. It is 15 years since we last had a holiday in the south.
I have been sorting out some embroidery to take, what needlewoman every goes somewhere with out her stitching. I have decided to take a Mon Ami Perre design '' Le Temps Qui Passe" will stitch the little pocket on 40 count permin linen with Chameleon Stranded thread ( floss) in THATCH which is a lovely slate blue shade. Promise to post the progress when I return.

 I have made myself a new Floss Ring Tag, the linen here again is 40 count 'Lambs wool"permin and I have stitched using one of The Gentle Art Simply Shaker Sampler Threads, this one is Briar Rose.
Welcome to, to some new followers to my blog, one of the lovely things about blogging is that you make friends in many different parts of the world, and are able to share an interest together.
See you all at the beginning of March.
Meanwhile Happy Stitching.

Oh, your holiday sounds wonderful, Lee--hopefully your PIF from me will be waiting for you when you return :)

Love the pieces you've chosen to work on and that new floss tag...

Travel safely and take lots of photos for us!
