I was one of the lucky winners of a PIF (Pay It Forward) on Rene's blog. Now it's my turn to pick who I will send something to. If you would like to receive something stitched from me, there are just a couple of things you must do. First leave a comment here (be sure to sign your name to the comment). Then you must PIF within the next 365 days. If more than 3 people comment I will draw 3 names. I will announce the results within the next week or so. Thank you for choosing me Rene!

Saturday we put the Crimbo tree up and all the ceiling decorations. We went and bought a white tree this year and I really like it. It really does brighten the room up.

Ok, I'm still around but just been very busy. We went to him indoors parents for the weekend for a much needed break. Things are getting to both of us at the moment what with the recession and all. And to top it of, the bloody alternators gone on the car this morning while him indoors was driving to Plumpton. Another expense we can't really afford. On the upside, him indoors parents have bought us a new cooker which arrived this morning. Mine wasn't working properly so it's a joint Xmas come birthdays present for us, so thank you so much Bob and Linda! It really meant a lot to us! It was ordered on Sunday from the Argos website, so I think thats pretty good going seeing they quoted up to 59 days for it to be delivered!
It's gas for the heating which is crippling us.................how come the buggers havent bought the prices down seeing fuel is cheaper now? Greedy feckers. Ya know, food, fuel and petrol all went up but him indoors wages havent...........at least petrol is coming down. OK rant over lol.
While we were at him indoors parents, Linda presented us both with stitched presents and she even framed them lol. She really has the stitching bug now hehehe.
Mines the one with the chocolate devil lol.

I am looking forward to the weekend as we are going to Col's mum and dads. We leave Friday and get back Sunday night. It will be good to sit down and do some stitching with her on the Sunday lol.

I already started my challenge and picked out my smallest UFO.
The rest of the week I have spent stitching on Celtic Summer and am about halfway through it now.

I spent this afternoon doing the beading on her. The material is quite heavy now with all those beads on it. I am really enjoying working on this and have made it my main project for now.
I also have a nice beaded ornament to make in time for Christmas and will probably start it in the next week.
Click on image to bigify it to see all the beads lol.

I love the Christmas tree too as it's very colourful. Included was a lovely home made card too.
Thank you, thank you, thank you ladies, you have made me one very happy lady indeed!

Then I started and finished Batty Jack by Just Nan which is in the Halloween issue of Just Cross Stitch. I used glow in the dark thread for the ghosts and used Carries 'Citrus' for the pumpkin, instead of what was called for on the chart. It is really tiny, only 2 x 2 inches. I am going to finish it off into a little ornament.
The other claw is on now and the rest of the rock. I am currently doing the border which as I have said many times lol, is slow due to all the kreinik and blending filaments. But what a difference back stitching makes as you can see on the flames.

The last couple of days I have been working on Natures Vision. It was a UFO and it's a BAP. It's faster going as it's on aida even though the colour is navy.
