I'm really in the stitching mood lately and have made a start on the Stacy Nash Pinkeep Heart. This is the first kit from the 2009 Group I've joined. It's something completely different to what I've stitched before and also the first time I've done one of Stacy's designs.
You need to cut out templates and set it all up before you start the stitching side of it. So last night I did all that and then I started on the cross stitching.

I did a little more tonight but didn't work on it for too long. It's a simple design and will stitch up quick I think.

I also wanted to take the time to thank the people who have contacted me asking whether I was OK after the bush fires that ravaged our state last Saturday. The other members of my family and I live along the coast of Victoria and were not in the area of the fires, thankfully. It's just been so devastating watching the news on TV with all the heartbreaking stories, scenes of homes and even whole townships destroyed, and hearing of lives lost. My heart goes out to the ones that have survived and those who have lost loved ones.
