Sea Stars and A Surprise!

Karen how did you do on Sea Stars this week? I actually managed to finish the big motif then did the small one next to it. Can't remember the colour number and can't be bothered to go look LOL! I am loving this though and it stitches up so quickly for all it looks as though it won't; if you get what I mean! It took me a while to decide what colour to use for the small motif and I wasn't sure about it so begin with but I like it now! Roll on next Tuesday so I can stitch on it again!

Yesterday I received an envelope and I couldn't work out what it could be! Anyway I won a runner-up prize in a drawing on Sammy Jo's blog just before Christmas and that was what it was! I'd totally forgotten about it! Anyway here is what she sent. The three DMC threads and this lovely little fob; isn't it gorgeous? Thank you so much Sammy Jo. I hope your exams go well.

I managed to get out of having a check-up and a clean and polish at the dentist. I told them I wasn't well and asked if I could re-book my appointment and they were OK with that. So I now go next month instead. The girls had their check-ups and they are fine. Apparently Jessica has perfect teeth! She tells her that everytime we go!

I'm going to have a bit of catching up on blogs time now then after lunch I'll settle down with a drink by my side ( now coughing and when I start I can't stop. Not fun when you're in the post office trying to tell them what's in the parcel you want to post!!!) and do a bit of stitching.

Sea Stars is looking wonderful, the colors are lovely. Glad you could get your dentist appt. rescheduled. Trying to have your teeth done and trying not to cough or sneeze would have been miserable. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Also, hope Jess did well on her exams, and your penquin stand up you did earlier was adorable, what a fun finish.
