Winner, Winner!!

I was one of the lucky winners over at Kerrie's blog on her Grow Your Blog giveaway.
Here is the lovely surprise I received in the mail this week from her.

She made me a lovely journal/diary cover and sent along a scrumptious smelling cake of soap aswell.  My stitching room smells divine at the moment.  Thanks Kerrie.

Sorry I don't have anything else to share with you at the moment.  Still waiting on my mojo to return, but I have been slowly working away on the stitchery piece in my previous post.  I will show some progress next post.

Until next time, happy stitching/quilting

I'm Trying...

my hand at a little stitchery.  I purchased this design by "Buzzy Bee Buttons" which contains a pre printed stitchery and instructions to make this prairie house pillow.

And here is my progress picture so far.  Just getting the hang of keeping those stitches the same size and making sure to go back into the same hole that the previous stitch made, but all in all i'm enjoying it.  Quite different from cross stitch!

I also recently purchased these two books from Anthea in her stash sale.  Some Hatched and Patched ornies that I would like to do for Christmas (well some of them anyway), and a gorgeous Christmas craft book by Natalie Ross.  There are some lovely Christmas projects in this one.  Thanks Anthea, i'm sure going to have fun with these.

Until next time, happy stitching/quilting
