Taking Stock - Week 17 & 18

 What I accomplished this week (Friday to Thursday)
Well, this fortnight, I didn't actually finish anything, but I did start a few things:
* Beaded Obi Belt
* Double Circle Skirt
* Stained Glass Window Quilt.

And, I pledged to join Self-Stitched-September 2011!

Spring has finally arrived here (thank goodness!) and I have been revelling in the sunshine and warmth I've been missing all winter. I went camping over the weekend, and it was just so gorgeous and blue (so I'm going to pretty up this post with some pictures of the weekend).
