I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas
Christmas here was not the peaceful time i had hoped for, circumstances out of my control prevented that, but DH and i enjoyed each others company and we received some wonderful gifts. Karen stitched me this lovely mistletoe ornament and DH wasted no time holding it above his head after commenting on Karens perfect stitching and her fabulous idea for the perpetual mistletoe! She also sent me the lovely JBW Christmas Tree charts too. I'm looking forward to using them as part of the monthly Christmas ornament SAL at Stitch & Stash next year. The Prairie Schooler santa and JBW 'Secret Garden' chart was a gift from Karan and the choccies and shower wash from Clare. I also received some lovely gifts from Kathy (no blog) but unfortunately they are not in the picture. Thank you ladies for your kindness.
This little pinkeep i stitched and sent in Karens Christmas parcel. It's by JBW and was so lovely to stitch. I had been gifted the chart earlier in the year.
I do like JBW designs, they are quick stitches and always look so effective and splendid when finished, i have quite a few now that i hope to stitch this year, so wathc this space as they say LOL
Tina (no blog) from Stitch and Stash had a birthday just before Christmas but had kept it very quiet so unfortunately i had missed it.
She is one of my UFO stitchers so i decided to knit up a bunny for her. It did arrive just before Christmas and i'm pleased to say Tina loved her.
She doesn't have a name as yet, but is holding a 'prodding' needle and a reel of thread to help make sure Tina stitches on Tuesday UFO nights.
I bet you are all wondering why i titled this post 'Happy 3rd Birthday' well... according to the blog counter, today is the 3rd anniversary of my blog. Surely i can't have been waffling on and still have folks reading since December 2006. To say thank you for your visits i've decided to make something for one of you. What should it be? something stitched? or something knitted? Please say in your comment if you would like to be entered into the draw and if you would like a stitched or knitted gift and i'll get DH to pick a winner New Years Eve.
Edited to say .....
Not sure if i will blog again before the New Year, so i'll take this opportunity to wish you all health and happiness and send my warmest wishes to you all for 2010.
