Small Token For Lesleyanne & A Giveaway

A while ago Lesleyanne very kindly sent me some charts that she had finished with that were on my wish list. I wanted to send her something for her kindness so I decided to stitch up this little beauty. I just love this design as the colours are so pretty and it has hearts and a bird in it! Lesleyanne received it yesterday and loves it so I am absolutely delighted:)

32 count white fabric

Started 28th October 2010

Finished 6th November 2010

For Lesleyanne

I had hoped to also show my SB roll but I haven't quite got it finished! I was going to finish it off once I'd done my ironing this morning but went out instead to take BBD Their Song to the framers. I just got in when I received a text message from Abi saying she needed her stuff for textiles so off I went again finally getting in and sat down just in time to have some lunch! So no finishing off the roll for me yet today! So I will show it sometime over the weekend!

Tomorrow is my 4th blogoversary ( how did that happen???) so I think it's time for wee giveaway:) If you would like to receive something stitched by me then all you have to do is leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to be entered. I'm not going to ask you to jump through hoops, post it your blog or be a follower. All I will ask is that you are a regular on my blog please:) I have no idea what it will be as yet and I do ask that if you win please be patient with me:) I will get something stitched up as soon as I can! **** NOW CLOSED****

Thank you got all your lovely comments on my last post. I don't really want to go into details so will just say it concerns my Dad and my sister with one thing and my eldest DD with the other!

It's certainly been a very windy, chilly week this week. We've had high winds here and at times it's been rather scary.
Right off to get that roll finished! Tonight is Shores night and I'm SAL-ing with Lisa. She'll be stitching on her PS sampler:)

Take care everyone.

Hugs

Sally

Sally, happy 4th! As a new blogger myself (less than a year)-that's quite an achievement. Please enter me in your draw. I lived in the UK for 16 years and head back every year in Dec. Living near St. Albans--a very high land point for our area--we experience some pretty icey Siberian winds in the winter---did you really want to know all that?!
