Thank you....

Thank you so much to Adrienne over at TryllaCraft for giving me this award.

Here are all the details about the Liebster Blog award:

Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved, and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition.

The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:
  1. Choose 5 up-and-coming (with fewer than 200 followers) blogs to award the Liebster to.
  2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.
  4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.
I am going the give the Liebster award to these wonderful bloggers:
  1. Lauren at Ambitious Stitches
  2. Tamara at Intricate Stitches
  3. Beanie at Cross Stitch Crazy
  4. Jolyn at Jolyn's Stitching Obsession
  5. Xeihua (Sara) at My Cross Stitch Corner
Five random things about myself:
  1. Chocolate Whiskey Cake is my biggest downfall.
  2. I don't like men with long hair (below the shoulders).
  3. I love family dinners at my in-laws.
  4. We lived next door to my in-laws for the first 16 years of our marriage (and still married) and we have moved - now married for 21 years. 
  5. My husband proposed after knowing one another for 4 weeks.
Until next time, happy stitching

Please help me ....

I officially have more HAED charts than I would be able to stitch in my lifetime. So I really need to not buy anymore, (well for the next month at least), taking baby steps is a good way to start, that way it won't seem so hard.

My present from my family to buy two charts per month for the year has been completed, thanks mainly to the 50% off sale that HAED had for Leap Day 2012. So the two charts that I have earmarked for March are Seven Hearts by Jim Warren and QS Duckling Discovery by Hannah Lynn.

I will continue to look at the new charts, and probably add more to my Wishlist, but that doesn't mean I have to buy them. Does it?

I was going to show you all the most recent update of MSK, but with the 2012 WiPocalypse coming up in a few days I've decided to put it off until then. There is only the bottom half of page 3 left and I have enjoyed working on this again, maybe because I know that it is coming to an end, and when it is completed I can bring another project into the mix. Hmmmm??? What to do? What to do?

Until next time, happy stitching
