The luckiest girl alive! Not only did I get that good news at the breast clinic on Tuesday plus my DH and I celebrated our silver wedding anniversary with a night away in a lovely place but to end the week I was doing a little catch up on blogs before I went off to stitch last night and found that I had won Angela's wonderful 3rd Blog anniversary giveaway :) I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when I saw my name! For my prize I have chosen one of Angela's gorgeous box finishes which I have admired since I first found her lovely blog. Angela thank you for your emails last night and I hope you received my replies OK :) What a lovely end to a wonderful week:)
Last night I finished Blackbird Designs AotH Pink Hill Manor:) I wasn't expecting to get it all finished last night but I did. No photo as yet but I'll take one and post in a day or two. So once done I decided to get The Primitive Needle By the Light of the Moon, which I started for the Spooky SAL in honour of Lisa, back out again. Thankfully the SAL kept running for this month. It is with thanks to the lovely Lois that I've picked this up again as she kindly sent me a clearer copy of this freebie:) So I'm going to continue with it tonight and, if needs be, tomorrow night as well. If I've finished it I think I'll pick up Silver Creek Samplers Dandy Dreams and try and finish that. I've got three pieces all together that need picking up again to finish ( Jenny Bean Pin Tuffet being the other one) and I want to get all three finished before Chris and I start our Drawn Thread The Sanctuary SAL. I feel bad letting Chris down as we were starting it early May but if I don't finish those pieces they'll be languishing in the draw for ages!
I sent a photo of my BBD Stitched with Love finish to Belinda and received a lovely email back from her. She always comes across as being such a wonderful, friendly person:) My photo is now in her gallery:)
I caught up a little with the Royal Wedding on the news last night as I only watched a little bit of the ceremony during the day. Catherine looked stunning in that dress and William so handsome. I think they make a perfect couple who look very much in love and so at ease with each other. I love the new titles the Queen has bestowed on them:)
That's it from me for now but I'll leave you with a few more photos from our wedding day 25 years ago. If you're friends with me on Facebook you'll already have seen them.
Me & my Dad. When I look at this photo I get emotional as he is so frail now.

Take care everyone and for those in the UK enjoy the rest of the long weekend:)
Love & hugs
