Awards and Another Roll!

It has been the week for awards this week as I received this award from Christine , Andrea and Michele B. Thank you so much ladies. As I have already has this one I am not going to choose any blogs this time but it goes without saying that it goes back to Christine and Michele B and on to everyone who reads my blog!

I have also received the Makes My Heart Smile award from Elisa, Rachael and Karan! Thank you so much for thinking of me. I am very honoured. Now I have to pass this on to ten blogs so here goes. Please don't be offended if your blog isn't here. I have lots of blogs in my Google Reader and I love them all.

Onto some stitching now. First up is lovely little Beatrix Potter! I am really enjoying stitching this but I have to concentrate really hard as I don't want a visit from that slimy green thing! This week I finished up the motif with the bird then moved onto the motif at the bottom. I am very happy with my progress on this for this week.

On Tuesday I decided to start my needleroll for this month for the SAL with Chris and chose Easter Egg Roll. This was so nice and quick to stitch and it's all finished up and on display. Unfortunately it wasn't until I was so far through stitching it that I realised there was something missing from my kit so the ribbon isn't the colour it should be as I had to use some I had in my stash. Needless to say I went to look at my other needleroll kits to make sure they had ribbon in them ( which they did) and I emailed JJ's to let them know that it was missing.

Shepherd's Bush Easter Egg Roll

Started 3rd March 2009

Finished 5th March 2009

Wednesday evening is my HAED SAL night with Lisa and I have also joined the fantastic HAED SAL blog which Cindy F and Wendy have set up so that I plenty of motivation from the ladies there to keep on stitching on QS Girly Gothic and, hopefully, finish her this year! Wednesday evening I just didn't want to put her down so I decided to stitch on her last night as well and I am so pleased I did! Next Wednesday should see that page finished then I only have two more to stitch! Before I forget I have a few charts for sale over in my Wish List and Stuff for Sale blog if anyone would like to have a look. I am trying to save up for a Shepherd's Bush kit (Family Sampler) so will keep adding to the list as and when I finish with charts. Charts are either gently used or new and postage will be extra.

Well I think that's it from me for now.

Take care everyone.
