I was a winner of the giveaway at Carols blog Stitching'n'Stashing and this is what I won! The cushion is so cute and as you can see she included lots of other stitchy stash for me to enjoy - she even included a bag she made herself - aren't I a lucky girl? thankyou so much Carol I have already put the fabric you provided to good use as you can see below.
I have been working on my Papillon piece all week but it's been slow progress and lots of frogging due to the fact I am struggling with reading the chart as to where to put my needle - it seems I am only capable of counting in a straight line, beyond that I am in trouble. After all my work and finally completing stage one - I decided I wasn't happy with the colours I chose and ripped half it out! Notice I have not provided a photo? I hang my head in shame ...
I took a much needed break from my Papillon and did something I knew I could do which is Cross Stitch!
My new start - Summer Hill by By The Bay Needleart using the 32 count Antique White Belfast linen so generously provided by Carol from Stitching'n'Stashing.
On to some bad news - I don't want to say to much because I want this blog to be about my passion for needlework not my personal problems but my baby was born with a health problem, he is currently very ill and needs an operation - this being Taiwan things are not going smoothly at all and I am extremely worried for my sons health, I won't say anymore and will leave it at that.
On to another subject, did anyone buy anything from Picture this Plus this July sale? I was sorely tempted but my spending has been out of control lately and I felt way to guilty to spend anymore.
Thankyou for taking the time to comment - I enjoy reading them!
