I'm Back & Wednesday Wicked Design

Hi everyone, finally I'm back working in my business and feel ready to start blogging again - look out I'll be visiting you all soon!

This weeks designer is a friend of mine who has finally taken her beautiful designs out of her studio and into her online stores. 4 Little Frogs produces gorgeous hand-stitched designs onto linen. Each design is meticulously cross stitched with beautiful thread and either mounted into frames or onto card.

I love that she not only caters for our little girls, but that she has something for the boys too. We all know how hard it is to find gorgeous art for the boys!

Some of gorgeous designs from her madeit and
etsy stores ....

Oh I do admire anyone that can sew in any shape
or form ........ the hours that must go into all these beautiful designs!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Short Break

We are off for a short break to Noosa - just for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to it as I need to have a rest from preparing our house for sale!

I will be glad when all this house buying and selling is over - it's exhausting. I feel like I have been doing nothing else. When all returns to 'normal' around here I will be back into blogging - I will have a lot to catch up on. Thanks for bearing with me!

Hope you are all having a great week. Catch you next week.
