Celebrations ....

 I have finished my QS Curl Up rotation and I have completed the bottom half of page 2. So next up in my rotation is Masquerade SK. The excitement is building with this one because I will have two more rotations of this project and it will be completed. My very first HAED finish. You've gotta love that.
 We have had 5 birthdays in 8 days, lots and lots of food and cake. Big birthday hugs to my Mum, DD, DD's partner, my nephew and my niece, and to top that all off our grandson has just started to walk, another wonderful milestone, and he is only 11 months old, so that will be another birthday next month. Woohoo!

 Until next time, happy stitching

February's prezzies ....

 For February via "The Best Anniversary Present Ever" (thanks to my wonderful family) I decided to choose one of Spanglers Houses that Michelle charted as Storykeeps recently, because I know that I won't really want to work on or have the full size chart and another design from Karen Middleton. I could not believe how many of her charts I have. I obviously love her style of watercolours. So I picked "SK Home is Where the Heart is", by Randal Spangler and "Rapunzal" by Karen Middleton.

QS Curl Up came up again in my rotation and it was great to finally start working on the candle. I was so excited about that (doesn't take much does it), because I am that much closer to finishing page 2 and another one page finish to add to my WiPocalypse tally.

I also found out what all the "hub-bub" about "SuperBowl" and stitching is. As we are not big American Football fans in New Zealand, I didn't understand it. Until, my sons decided to watch this years SuperBowl and YES! YES! I was able to sit and stitch for 4 hours. That was a highlight this month for sure.

Until next time, happy stitching

I was so happy ....

Woohoo!! I could not believe my luck when I went to the HAED website to pick charts for "My January present", that was when I noticed they were having a 25% off Valentines Day Sale through until 16 February 2012, I have already found 2 charts and they are

 "Kathleen" by Hannah Lynn

"Mini Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate" by Randal Spangler

(I love his draglings, they are so cute). Now I only need to make my choices for my February present before the sale ends.

This is where I am at with QS Crabby Crush after this months stitch-in. It was my first time using DMC Light Effects floss, and I found it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Just took a bit more patience to deal with it. But it was worthwhile in this instance.

Until next time, happy stitching
