Good Day!

You may remember late on last year I stitched the Prairie Schooler Autumn Pinkeep from the September issue of The Gift of Stitching. I enoyed stitching it so much and thought it was such a neat little design. Anyway I contacted Kirsten, the editor, to ask if there would be the other three seasons to complete the set. She said it was a great idea and would get in touch with Pam Smith of PS. Well imagine my delight when I downloaded the February issue and there were the other three seasons!! So thank you Kirsten and Pam!! These will be a must stitch for me this year!

No stitching to share today. I made a start on Chatelaine Spring Morning and have thoroughly enjoyed stitching on this for the last two evenings. The silks are so nice to stitch with; I just don't want to put it down. I also make a start on Kyrie's PIF yesterday afternoon but found I'd made a mistake and had to frog the bottom bit! Those ****** frogs must really hate me this week!! I shall cast them out into the freezing snow if they don't leave me alone!!

Yes it's snowing here but it's not laying ( which is a shame) as we had rain beforehand but as the evening comes in I think ( hope!) it might. We've had high winds which kept me awake last night as it was blowing right in at the bedroom window and I kept thinking the window was going to blow in! Guess I should've got out of bed and stitched!

I almost forgot! Sam I will check the colour number of the variations for the bluey grey motif. I write the number of the colour against each motif so I will know!

Finally today I have had the honour of being given the You Make My Day award by Jaimie of Bell Literacy Reflection and Lavender and Lace Stitches Thank you so much Jaimie for this award. You made my day by giving it to me:) Now I am supposed to pass this award on to 10 bloggers who make my day but there is no way I can pick just 10 as I read so many wonderful blogs that make my day so this award is for anyone whose blog I visit:)

I need to get caught up on blogs but haven't had chance today so that may be a job for tomorrow! DH and I went to Jess' year 12 review today and it went very well. All the teachers had nothing but praise for her and I think I upset her chemistry teacher as she looked at me and said I know you! I used to teach you didn't I? I replied yes and she said oh God!! Guess it must make them feel rather old!! Lol! Anyway as you can imagine we are delighted Jess is doing well.

Better go! Have a good weekend everyone!

I saw that turn up in the GOS as well, and my first thought was how cute it was and that I needed to put it on my to do list.

Congrats to your daughter, that's wonderful she's doing so well.
