SOOOOO I thought of doing a wee giveaway ... a stitched small , some fabric and some other bits and bobs that will go with said stuff ..lol ..I think have one or two bits floating around in my craft room hahahahah ... DH would totally agree on that one ...
Rules are: you must be a follower ... have a blog so I can be nosey( pop the link on as well please ), to see what you like/ dislike etc, say you would like to be considered on this post...... and I don't mind posting abroad so this is open to all :)
I will chose someone at random next weekend and will let you know if you are chosen, so I can get your snail mail address :) good luck :)
On to other news ... the wee break away was lovely ... the hotel was really nice , nice room but a wee bit on the small side but bathroom was fabulously big ...food was really nice too and the staff were lovely ... it had snowed the day before, so we were lucky we got there in my new mouse mobile ... on the way back DH and I dropped into some antiques shops looking for inspiration for our new "rooms" eventually ....found some fab stuff .. just hope there is something left when we get round to it ...
I have finally finished the last of my written assignments for my NVQ level 4 in Business Administration and you probably heard the rather loud squeak when I put the last word in ..lol I can now get back to my crafting full time when I am not working squeeeeee .....
As this weekend was hermitting , I treated myself to some me time and sat down today and got the Why is it by The Cricket Collection finished .. I stitched it on Sparklies fabric 32count , slightly nutty with threadworks thread number 11011 for your information :) This design I saw at a friends many moons ago and have always wanted to stitch it and I finally found the pattern last year funnily enough on the Sparklies stand at Harrogate and nabbed it quick :) don't you just love hermitting weekends :)
During the week when I have gone to Chris's I have been crocheting and can show you my progress on the blanket for my car ... also bought some more wool at hobby craft last week as there was 20% off so it would have been a shame not to hahahahah.. Its a duck egg coloured Arron wool with flecks of gold and red and black in it and will look fabulous made up for our bedroom as it is duck egg colours :)
Today started out a beautiful spring like day so I got my camera out to take some photos of spring like flowers coming up in the garden .. as well as a wee bird that was singing its heart out on my wall :)
