The winner, as you can see, is Dianemi!!! Congratulations Di! Please email your address ( my email is in my profile) and I will get the chart in the post to you ASAP:)

A huge thank you to everyone who commented on my finishes in my last post. Beyond My Heart is now at the framers and I should have it back midweek next week.

Onto my stitchy progress for the last few days:) As usual Wednesday is my night for stitching on my HAEDs with Lisa and Claire and last week I also stitched on Thursday afternoon and evening with the Friends HAED SAL on QS Girly Gothic and have completed the first 30 rows on page 2 so I am very happy. I think I may slow down a bit now as I'm onto lots of confetti stitching. I have promised Abi that I will stitch QS Holly Fairy when Girly Gothic is finished!

I have had another finish! Yoyo asked where I find the time! I only stitch mostly on an evening and very occasionally in an afternoon. On an evening I do mostly get about 3 hours stitching done and it's amazing how much you can fit in in 3 hours:) Anyway back to my finish! It is Midnight Stitching Quaker Faith Hope Love and it was amazingly quick to stitch and I enjoyed stitching it so much. I chose to stitch it each one on separate pieces of fabric.

Started 17th March 2009

Finished 22nd March 2009

The chart is now for sale ( or trade) ( SOLD) in my For Sale/ Wish List blog along with the last BBD I finished and the Homespun Elegance ornament chart.

Last night I picked up Needleprint Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler after not stitching on it last Monday. I finished the last motif I was stitching on and almost finished another one. It was nice to pick this one up again.

So I'm going to start my random PIF this evening. This one has been in the works for a while and I think my random recipient might just like it! LOL! Also planning on a new start on Sunday seen as Beyond My Heart and Quaker Faith Hope Love are finished. I'm going to be starting Drawn Thread My Favourite Things so that should keep me well occupied on a Sunday evening for a while!

Sunday was Mother's Day here in the UK and I hope you were all looked after and spoilt rotten:) My girls brought me breakfast in bed ( minus a spoon!) and I received lovely cards from them both and one from my DH. Jess bought me a Danielle Steel book ( she's my favourite author) and a box of Cadbury's Flake Moments ( yum!) and Abi bought me a primula in a basket and a lovely fat blue tit ornament which is really for the garden but I've got it on the dining room window sill with the robin DH's auntie bought me. I had a lovely quiet day with my girls and DH.

Finally I received this award from Marianne. Thank you so much Marianne. I am not going to pick out any blogs to pass it on to as I want this to go to every one of the blogs I read:)

Have a wonderful week! Take care everyone.

Wendy said...

Congrats on your award and a wonderful progress on your HAED!!!

Brigitte said...

Congratulations on finishing the Quaker motifs. They look great stitched in different colours. How do you finish them?
Great progress on your HAED piece and your Beatrix.
I also stitch mainly in the evening and I also could stitch for three hours but I often start to sleep over my stitching no matter how hard I try to stay awake, lol.

Kim B said...

Your projects look great! I love Faith Hope Love! I want to do this one myself eventually.

karenv said...

As always, all your WIPs are lovely Sally.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I'm finding the font that you're using to write your posts really hard to read, to the point that I'm mainly just skimming and looking at the pictures, which is a shame. Obviously it's your blog so you can do what you want, but I know I would enjoy reading it more if you would revert to an easier-to-read font. Please?
