Giveaway, gift & good start!




Well after my not so good week I was delighted to receive these goodies from my postman this morning.  Thanks to Nancy at Glory Bee, I won this gorgeous Pine Mountain chart and threads in her giveaway.  Nancy is a lovely lady and great designer.  She has some wonderful new designs just realeased and lovely finishes of her own stitching on her blog, please go check it out and say hi http://www.glorybeestitch.blogspot.com/


Leading up to Valentines Day last month every time I visited Staci's  blog at snippets and stash it would make me smile when I saw this cute chart that she had stitched up on the sidebar of her blog.   Here in Scotland there is an old Valentine verse that I remember from my childhood.  It says My love for you, will never fail, I carry it roun' in a wee tin pail. I contacted Staci to ask her about the details of the chart and she very kindly offered to send it to me.  It is sitting here patiently waiting for me to stitch it, once I am finished I will pass it on to someone else, I;m sure there will be someone out there who would like to have it. Being relatively new to blogging and just getting to know people I was very touched by Staci's kindness in sending me the chart , so I wanted to send a little thank you in return.  As anyone knows who visits Staci's blog she loves to knit as well as stitching.  As it is very difficult for me to get my hands on stitching charts here I decided to send her a knitting pattern along with this little ornie I made for her. Now that it has arrived I can post a piccy.


                                               

My pillow disaster that I mentioned in my last post has now thankfully been rescued and is ready to be sent on its way. I wanted to stitch something fun and bright for Easter so I started on this cute design yesterday. 



Well I am off to get dinner then hopefully watch some tv and stitch.  Be back soon. Hugs!

Just been reading my lovely comments but just to confirm as I think there is some confusion.  It was the little ornie I sent Staci not the pillow with the sampler girl design on it.

Love the chart sent by Staci and can't wait to see your progress with it.
I've stitched that Easter piece but haven't had time to finish it off-i don't have the inspiration now, so it will have to wait for next year. I like the colours you have chosen for the piece.

Happy Easter weekend!
