The best days are full of little surprises!

It's been an entire month since I last blogged! Sorry for that, now it will be weekly or more from now on! The main reason I haven't blogged is because I started a new job and have just got back from holiday to Turkey for two weeks! I missed IHSW and I'm looking forward to visiting everyone's blogs to see what stitching they got up to :-) 

Although I was on holiday I did get some stitching done in the evenings while enjoying a drink before going out for dinner and the evening. I finished another Newton's Law design from the series in The World of Cross Stitching like before. I'm not sure I liked this design as much, maybe because all the colours even the background was so similar. I still want to stitch a lot more of them though! This one is called 'The best days are full of little surprises', which I am going to put into a card and send to my Nan.

Next up I am going to stitch another card but something a bit different. It'a s poppy design from the latest Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, so I am just getting my threads together for that. Apart from that my Venice design has had no stitching done on it since the last update so I will have to get some stitches done on that soon!

Here are some pictures of Turkey too, we went to Dalayan and saw loggerhead turtles, blue crabs, and had a mud bath. As well as lots of lazy days by the pool and some lovely tranquil boat trips!
