PIF and other stitchy bits :)

Hi Every one :) hope you've had a good weekend so far and got some stitching done ???


OOO I have some news and so stitching stuff to show today soooo what shall it be first ????? Oh go on then the news first ..lol.
I had quite a few names for this and decided because I have a year to stitch something for my PIF I would or rather DH did ..lol draw three names for this PIF .... yeah I know I'm mad ..lol but it keeps me out of mischief hehehehe .....


Ok the winners of my PIF are drum roll please......


Lynda http://acozyplaceforstitchingtoo.blogspot.com/
DJ http://tickledpinkinstitches.blogspot.com/   and this is defo not fixed .lol
Ally http://allysstitchinglife.blogspot.com/

Sooo can you please email me with some likes and dislikes etc so I can put my thinking cap on :)


and don't forget that you must do a PIF on your blog too (though you don't have to draw three names like me ..lol)




and now the stitchy bit ... I have entered the Victoria Sampler competition (in the  yahoo group) we had a chart designed by Thea and the rules where to be judged on stitching and how we finished them too :) there has been some wonderful entries so far ... so here is my entry :)  
My competition piece for the V/S group
my finish :)


















I have also been working on Celtic Autumn and The Romantique SAL as well this weekend as I have been on my own as DD's 1 & 2 are in london for the weekend and DH is out and about doing his fire training stuff  so there has just been me and the small furbabies and the birds twittering in the garden for company so got quite a bit done on the SAL after sticking the parts together then realising bits had been missed of when printed out eeeekkkk !!! and I had to wing it .. quite well I think really....lol ..... so here are the updates 
update 17th march 
Update on SAL done today :)
















So that is it for now I think ..... thanks for all who took part in my giveaway and my PIF .... if any one knows how to get in touch with Patti and Peggy can you tell them to contact me re the pin cushions .. I have sent them emails but not heard anything back and I would hate for them to miss out ...... If they haven't got in touch with me by next weekend then I will do a redraw .


Thanks every one ... off to go and put the kettle on and make another cuppa as its thirsty work typing heheheh ...
happy stitching and squeak to you all soon :)

These little pillows are gorgeous!
Thankyou for the comment on my stitching tea party, however I did laugh when you said it would be a long way to visit across the pond, it would not take long at all because I live in England! Tee hee!!!!
