Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!! It's dull and muggy here on the east coast of England and it keeps raining every so often. How typical for Easter! Lol! I hope you have some nice Easter eggs:) I haven't got a single egg this year! LOL! I am not really complaining though as DH's auntie asked what sort I would like and I declined as I really need to loose to some weight and if there's an egg there I'll just want to eat it all at once!

I don't have much stitching to show today. Monday evening I should have stitched on Bea but it didn't happen as I just couldn't be bothered to pick her up so I opted for the PIF I've been stitching. That is now finished barring the making up and I hope to get that done over the next few days depending on what we are doing. Wednesday we'd been out at Sheffield Meadowhall and didn't get home until about 7pm so by the time we'd had something to eat and got settled down I couldn't be bothered to stitch. Last night I did manage a bit of stitching on HAED QS Girly Gothic. Not as much as I'd have liked but DH and I had been out in the afternoon ( Abi was at her friend's and Jess stayed home to revise) and didn't get in until nearly 7pm ( more about that another day). So here's my little bit of progress on QS Girly Gothic. Hopefully next week I'll get more done:)
I have done a bit more on Just Nan When Barnabee Met Bella and I just love how this is coming along. I think I shall stitch more on this tonight.
Yesterday I received this lovely chart from the lovely Barb ( no blog). Barb stitched this recently and offered the chart on the Stitch and Stash forum and I had no idea that she was sending it to me until it arrived:) Thank you so much Barb. I have been eying this one up since it came out but as I'm on a no chart stash thing until at least November I resisted buying it. I'm hoping to stitch it soon then I promised Barb I would pass it on to Su.


Nothing else to report other than I have to wait until next week to find out my scan results etc. They are back but the doctor I want to see is off until next week so I have to ring on the day as they had no pre-bookable appointments. Grrrrrrrrrr!

I almost forgot I was given an award by Carolyn the other day. Thank you so much Carolyn. The meaning of this award is:

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time, and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated."

I am passing this award onto the following blogs:

Carolyn ( back at ya!)
KarenV
Elisa
Hazel
Juls
Michele
Jayne
Lisa

Well that's it for today. No rivetting stuff but maybe by the time I post again Barnabee might be done! Not! LOL!

Take care everyone. Have a wonderfull Easter weekend.

Hugs.

I like your progress on the HAED design. I give you a lot of credit for doing one! I admire them but am really afraid to start one! Your other piece is looking very nice too!

Happy Easter! Actually it's not Easter yet...

Lovely stitching as always. How are you going to frame QS Girly Gothic?

Enjoy your weekend!

Lots of lovely progress this week Sally and GG will soon be giving you an HD at this rate.

I know just what you mean about the easter eggs but I have no worries as I do not think I will be getting any either this year.

Paula said...

Hope you had a lovely Easter Sally, I'm off work until Thursday YAY! lol
I didn't get one Easter Egg either, I didn't want one, as I'd only make a pig of myself and eat it in one go.....not good!! lol
That's a gorgeous chart that Barb sent you, she's very good isn't she.....

Happy stitching.... and hugs....

Angela said...

Plenty of stitching to view.

What a lovely chart.

Congrats on the award.

RuthB said...

A happy belated Easter to you as well. May the bunny send you really good scan results!

BTW, I completely understand the "couldn't be bothered to stitch" line -- I get that a lot even though it seems so counter-intuitive since we are supposed to LOVE stitching... right?

Kit said...

I hope all is well with your scan. Congrats on the award, you do have a lovely blog. What a nice gift, such a beautiful pattern!

Hazel said...

Awww thanks for the award Sally. Your stitching is lovely as ever and I adore the new chart. Yumm. xx

stitcherw said...

Barnabee & Bella is so pretty, and I love Gothic Girly. Congrats on the award, and what a fun pattern you got on your winning the chart.

Oops, forgot to wish you good luck on your scan. That would be so frustrating to have to wait to get the results when you know the office has them.

Your stitching is lovely! I don't comment as often as I should and for that I apologize for that. I do love oogling your works though!

Ranae said...

Sally! Honey! Are you o.k.? I noticed you are quiet. Come out Come our where ever you are!!
