Giveaway!! New draw date!!

Hi Everyone

I thought I would let you know that I have extended the draw date for the Giveaways as only 4 people have responded so far.   It looks like I have not given everyone enough time.  The new closing date is Saturday 8 March 2014.  Hopefully, this will give more people a chance to enter.

Good Luck and Happy Stitching Everyone.

I'm Back!!

Finally, the New Year is here - and so am I!!   I know, at long last!!

I can't believe that its February!  Where has the time gone!

I've finally got some stitching going, but no photos yet.  There is a baby boom at the moment, with lots of my daughters friends having babies.  So I've started stitching, and I hope I can keep up!

I've done something new.  Here are some felt owls I have stitched.  Something I have always wanted to do.   The larger one has stick on eyes with eyelashes!

There are some lovely Giveaways going on - do have a look at my side bar for them.  I'm also having a Giveaway to celebrate 3 years of blogging.  I'm slowly getting somethings together, so please be patient with me.  I will give you a date later on, so watch this space.

IHSW 21-23 February 2014.

Remember it's the IHSW stitching weekend starting on 21-23 February 2014.  So join in the fun and see what you can stitch over the weekend.  Remember to share what you have done.

[Sorry, I got the wrong dates.  I originally put 14-16 February 2014, but it should be 21-23 February 2014.]
