well what can I say except I have been stitching and my orts prove it ...lol I have been working on my SAL with DJ for the last two Tuesday nights and boy is it hard to do that over one on 40 count with no proper lighting ...
I have done a little bit more on the North Wind and I have also started a Valentine Exchange piece for my partner over on the Friendly stitchers so have done more stitching in this last week than I have done in the last few months and long may it continue :)
my craft room is still out of bounds at the moment but hopefully by the end of this weekend I shall be somewhat nearer hehehe.... although I am taking a wee trip to Ikea with the DD and BF tomorrow :) thank you for all your help and I hope you managed to find something of use heheheh .... DH is happy as he can now walk through without hitting anything ..lol, My drawers are almost full to burst with patterns and most of them are kitted up totally or partially , I am getting them done so that I can just pick up and go, once I have finished a few more of my WIPs .... a bit more hard work now but it will be worth it in the long run :)
on top of the upheaval of my room DD2 has decided she wanted to re decorate her room soo she and her BF have done a sterling job and I just did the finishing touches of the feature wall wall paper , one roll's worth thank goodness as that's about all I can manage these days and that was with help ....
no joke getting old hahahahah .... talking of which.... it is my birthday on the 28th of this month and I want to celebrate with you all with another giveaway ..... so I would like some ideas as to what you would possibly like from me eg:- a stitched item? , some finishing goodies ?, threads? , fabbie (hand dyed?) or a gift certificate ?.... I will pop all suggestions into a tea pot and pick a couple of winners on my actual birthday :) looking forward to seeing what you would like :)
eeee I have the start of the sniffles thank goodness for balsam tissues and cidre ..lol not quite sure that is a proper remedy heheheh.. any one else want one or another tea ????
while I remember Diane the wonderful designer of Silver Creek Samplers is having a wee giveaway of her own ... now don't forget it was me that sent you there so mention my name please .. it won't get me any where.... but just so she knows where you have bobbed over from ..lol She would like some more followers on her blog and once she has reached 50 is going to do a giveaway of one of her charts ... I currently have two kitted up ready to go and would love to win the Dandy Dreams one :) so please bob over and say hello :)
Last weekend DH and I took a wee trip to sunny Blackpool to go and see my Dad and deliver their presents , we stayed over and had a lovely time and while there we visited Fleetwood Freeport and I got some new clothes as I have shrunk almost a couple of stone :) also some how found a craft shop there heheheh and came out with some gorgeous coloured felt for needlebooks and some large paper flowers and a very large bag of buttons ... well I just couldn't resist hehehehe
