Every train journey this week, my needles have been flashing and jabbing (and of course, stabbing myself in the finger and even the leg – thanks french knots) to finish my 'Pete the Pirate: setting out' design. Look, it even has a proper name now and everything! I finished it on Friday, with one subtle change. With the addition of some long blondish hair this one became Priscilla the Pirate. Well, girls can be pirates too right? RIGHT.

Oh and another exciting thing happened this week! I usually post on a Sunday night so I quite often link up to the excellent Nifty Thrifty Sunday linky party. There are always some fun and smart things on there, and I love a good browse. I linked up my unfinished pirate design last week and I was pretty stunned when Vanessa commented on my blog to say that I'd been picked as one of the six features of the week! WOW. I also got the notification yesterday which was my birthday, so it seemed like a lovely extra special birthday treat! Thanks Vanessa! I was chuffed to feature and will display my badge with pleasure.
I've also added to my fabric hoard this week after a trip to my local fabric store. I got some lovely Michael Miller fabric which I plan to use as a background to some more new embroideries I have planned, and I also couldn't resist this lovely stack of black and white fat quarters. No idea what I'm going to use them for, but I'm sure something will come along that needs them :)
