Happy New Year!

Happy New year everyone! I would like to thank those who have taken the time to visit and comment on my blog over the year. I really do appreciate it! I hope 2009 is a prosperous year for you all!

Last finish for 2008!


Here is my last finish for 2008. It is by Barbara Ana. I loved stitching him and the way he turned out!

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!


I worked on a UFO today seeing it was UFO day on ILCS. I am going to try and work on a UFO every Tuesday lol. This one is called Guardian Angel from Janlynn. I started her years ago when I first started stitching. Hopefully she will be the second of my UFO's to be finished.

Margaret and I am implementing a stash diet for 2009 and I am looking forward to finishing my WIP's, UFO's and things I already have in my stash pile. Money is tight and I really would love to do the things I already have rather than them just collecting dust and never seeing the light of day. It really would be lovely if others were to join us. Anyone out there also up to the challenge? lol.

Celtic Summer Update


I finally have an update on her. I am about half way through on her now. I tend to stitch on her one day and the next session I do the beading on the previous days stitching. Click on the picture to biggify and see her properly lol.

Weekend update

I have been working on two projects this last week. The wizard for the twins...........


.............and I started a new project by Barbara Ana called 'It is snowing somewhere', which I just love.


I am stitching it on Polstitches fabric called 'Sky High'. I don't have all the colours so I am substituting as I go along but it's fun as I get to used lots of over dyes.

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.

New start.

I started this when we went to Colins Mums. It's for the twins and hopefully won't take too long as it is 7x5 inches. I have the Sorceress that matches as well. I got them ages ago marked down in Hobbycraft.

This is what it looks like so far and below is what it will look like!

I will take a picture of Celtic Summer tomorrow as I need good light for that as it won't fit on the scanner.

MIA again.

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 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 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.
