I'm still here

Good Morning everyone!!

I'm sorry I haven't posted or commented on blogs this last week or so, I've been stitching away like crazy so as to not lose my stitchy bug before Santa and the Mouse HAED ornament is done LOL.

I am hoping that by the end of the week/early next week I will have a finish.

I hope you are all keeping warm and dry in this awful cold, wet and windy weather we are having.

Santa and the Mouse HAED Ornament

Hello again everyone!! I have a quick update on Santa and the Mouse.

I am now halfway through page 3 and I hope to have the ornament done by the beginning of November.

Here it is so far:

I have no idea why my pictures have started turning themselves again :(
Until next time


Birthday Spoils :) (pic heavy)

Good Morning to everyone from a very wet South Wales.

It is absolutely battering down outside and as a result I got drenched on the school run. Good time to stay indoors, pop on the heating and get some stitching done :)

Now, as my title suggest I celebrated a birthday. My birthday was yesterday and I turned 28 and I was spoilt.

I took part in a Birthday Thread Exchange, and although not all of the cards arrived, I did receive these:

For some reason the photo has decided to turn again.
 I also received a very brilliant present from my friend Heather.  She sent me a thread per the Birthday Thread Exchange, a piece of Polstitches fabric "Friendship" and money to get myself either more fabric or charts :)

Once again the pic has turned itself the wrong way.

I put the money with other birthday money and bought myself 6 pieces of yummy Polstitches fabrics and a HAED chart.

Here is the chart I purchased:

Wings In Repose - Nene Thomas
This chart is an absolute whopper. It contains 54 pages of chart LOL. How many lifetimes will I need to finish this.

I also took advantage of the sale HAED are currently having and I purchased more Ornaments and another BAP :) Here are the ones I bought:

Santa's Magical Flight

The Enchanted Christmas

Up, Up and Away

The Spirit of Winter Robin

The Waiting
I also received some lovely perfume from my hubby and kiddies. I received two bottles of this:

Haven't I been spoilt :) A huge thank you goes out to Heather for being such a fabulous friend and sending me scrumptious goodies :) xxxxxxxxx

Until next time

Santa and the Mouse....ANOTHER PAGE FINISH.

Good Morning to all.

Yes, you read correctly. I have another page finish. I started page 2 on October 1st, and finished it last night (October 10th).

Here it is:

Even my hubby likes him. He says he looks a very Victorian Santa :)

I bought myself a pen that you can grid your work with and is washable and it has helped me greatly. I can now do 1 colour all over a page without miscounting :)

I am now going to go back to page 3 (which I started last night).

Fingers crossed, but I think at this rate I may get this done in time for Christmas :)

Until next time

Santa and the Mouse PAGE FINISH!!

Good Morning to all.

I have had an extremely productive week and to show for it I have a page finish.

I finished page 1 of the Santa and the Mouse HAED ornament. Here it is:

I will be removing the blue lines once the ornament is fully finished :) I now have 3 pages left. I'm going to start the next page until later on when I will iron and grid up Moon Goddess in order to finish page 4 :)

I hope you all have a very productive day.

Until next time
