I have to say that I am really enjoying stitching smalls each month. I am so pleased that Chris suggested the needleroll SAL and that I joined the biscornu and Christmas ornament SALs. So here's my first small finish of February and it's a needleroll! LOL! I LOVE stitching these as they are so easy to stitch and finish up! This month I chose Welcome Baby so that I can send on the chart to Barb ( no blog) as I promised. As you can see instead of adding a charm I stitched a pink heart and instead of adding a name and date I added the names of my both my girls.

Just before Christmas I won a contest on Sammy Jo's blog and look what arrived on Friday! I was like a child on Christmas morning! LOL! Everything was wrapped in this lovely pink paper.
Thank you so much Sammy Jo! I love it all and I hope you have received the email I sent.
The only other piece of stitching I have to show is my progress on the Needleprint Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler from last night. I didn't stitch on Sunday evening so no BBD this week. I managed a small motif on Bea this week so I'm happy!
Jess and DH were very impressed with Nottingham University on Saturday but whether she will opt for it I do not know. Her nerves got the better of her before they set off and she told me she wasn't going as she didn't want to go! Needless to say I put on my stern Mum act and off she went in strop! She said she was fine once she got in the car! If I am honest I am worried that she will decide which uni she wants to go to then will end up not going because she's too nervous and frightened. We shall see.
Our Sunday lunch out for my Dad's birthday was lovely. It's been a long time since we've all gone out for a meal. It's his 80th birthday today so Happy Birthday Dad! I've been to see him this morning and he's now two bottles of malt whiskey better off! LOL! Guess my sister and I had the same idea!
We had some snow Sunday evening and overnight but it's all gone now and it's raining. I HATE rain and it feels miserable!
As I said in my last post Elisa awarded me the Your Blog is Fabulous award. As I have already done five addictions I won't do those again but I am passing the award onto these blogs. As I said before if your blog isn't here please don't be offended. It doesn't mean that I like your blog any less.
I am afraid I am way behind on blogs at the moment and will try and get caught up again soon. This PC is so slow at times and I get so frustrated. Still it's 6 years old so in PC terms I guess that is ancient!
Take care everyone.
