And now I must say a big Welcome to my new followers! I have now reached 60 people who pop in and out of my little corner :)

Visiting Old Friends

Well kind of....Last night I pulled this out of my WIP drawer....
I felt like it was time it got some TLC, so, when I finally put it down again, this is what I saw....

Its been fun getting back to 1 of my larger projects for a break while I finish up some of my Season stitching. Now I just have a few little things to finish off and I will be ready to approach the 2012 challenges with much gusto!

Happy Stitching this weekend :)

No Stitching but Lifechanging

Yes, no stitching was done in this household this weekend, so I guess unintentionally I missed IHSW

The reason however is I was preparing. Preparing for what I feel was 1 of the biggest lifechanging events for me so far :) This preperation led me to ......

here today......
which in turn allowed me the right to buy.....
(Both images from Google as I had no time to worry about photos lol)

Finally at the age of 24 I am able to drive without someone 'more mature' in the passenger seat. So watch out world and LNS here I come! lol :)

Happy Stitching and Safe Driving :)

Over the last couple of days Ive had some fun mail.
Some fun little Christmas ornaments

One Season peice that caught my eye, and when it got here I realised its part of a banner..... sigh lol.

Celtic Spring, the first one of the ladies that Im collecting
So its been a bit of fun but it means I really have to go through my stash and organise it so that its all easier to find and store :) As it is its a bit of a shambles lol.

Come join us as we settle in to stitch on

Happy Stitching :)

A Charitable Finish

This little guy I stitched up for a charity called Stitch For Pleasure, Stitch for Charity . He took 3 nights to stitch up.(Edit: He is now headed to World of Charity Stitching as they have more use for him)

It is my first square for them so I hope they are able to use it. Its a 6"x6" square. They have different themed quilts for people to stitch like many other likeminded charities. I have my name down to do a baby themed square, which isnt due until March so I have a little time.
Whatever or whoever you are stitching for, Happy Stitching as we approach WIP Wednesday :)

Not Much to Tell

'Cinderella' (Or at least a part of her skirt)

Not much stitching has been done in the last week but I have got a few hours in the last 2 days. Its a hectic time of year for us now, but Im hoping to get a little done in the evenings of IHSW, and after next Tuesday things should quiet down a little for about a week lol

Happy Stitching :)

And hang on whats this?...

For that you will have to stay tuned as its a tale for another day.

Good night and Happy Stitching :)
