I have finally got some stitching to show you whoop whoop ... Master Bentley has also posed for you ... he was really impressed that you had missed him and he agreed to have some photos taken just for you all ;0
I got my first wage last week and I splashed out on some trims from Nancy's Victorian Motte Sampler Shop and I am eagerly awaiting their arrival :)
I also won a chart on the bay of evil Acorn Sampler by With my Needle and I splashed out on Strawberrry Sampler by Heartstringsamplery which I have wanted since she released it earlier this year and now I haves it heheheheh .... her links to the shop etc and how to get her yummies are on her blog :)
While having a clean out in the garage DH came across something I had forgotten I had got ... sooo I took a photo and see if you can think what it is :) may even be a small prize heheheh
Soooo what have I been up to ..... well apart from work work and more work ..lol I entered the Christmas/Winter in July Challenge over on Friendly Stitchers I oorginally put down for three ornaments but that was before I got the job ...lol I did well I managed..... two..... hehehe and the third is in the wings waiting to be started .... Jillann has let me know that hers has arrived so I can finally show you ... I did Red House in Winter by LHN twice heheheh .. its one I wanted to do for myself and thought well everything was there I would do it for her as well :) the third one when I do it will be peace by LHN (I stitched it for a rak earlier on this year too )
Last night I managed to finish finish my red house and also my busy needles into wee cushions .... ... it was soooo nice to see something stitched and finished at long last .....
I have worked on a wee bit more of Dawn of Spring but it isn't released until next week so I can't show you just yet .... and Thursday it was stitching at Bev's and I managed to get some more done on Pumpkin Cottage .. it was the first time I had put needle and thread together in 5 days ...... *sigh this working lark sure does eat into your stitching time ...lol .... on the plus side I can now afford some stash goodies and go to Harrogate for definite hehehe....
I really need to hire someone to clean my house, do the washing and cooking too ... any volunteers ???? no I didn't think soo hahahahahah
I have been trying to sneak visits to you all and leaving a comment as much as I can but usually by the time I get time for the computer I am falling as sleep ... Last week was hermitting weekend as you all know and I did stitch and finish that ornament for me ... but half way into the afternoon I took a mouse nap in my chair both days .... one minute I was stitching the next minute I woke up a few hours later with my needle stuck ready for the next stitch !!!!!
hopefully today I will manage to stay awake long enough to get something done ..lol
