More Progress!

Firstly, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who left me a comment on my previous post. You really made my day with your kindness about my mistake in my stitching. Stitchers really are the best!

This is my progress on Vervaco Temptation. I haven't done as much as I would have liked since I managed to get a virus and although I still managed to go to work, typical, in the evenings I didn't really feel much like stitching but did force myself here and there. Hopefully the antibiotics the Doctor gave me will kick in and I will feel more myself and stitching. Anyway heres my progress, I have been stitching the curtain.

Until next time, happy stitching

Progress and New Stash!

This is my progress on Vervaco's Temptation. I have stitched and unpicked and stitched and unpicked the left arm this week more than I can say and I have to say that I still don't think it is absolutely right but I couldn't find my mistake but I still love stitching it.

My new stash is via Lisa at who brought two Little House Needleworks Winter Band Samplers so I swapped with her a chart I had that she wanted.

Thank you for your best wishes for my son, he is now back to normal.

Until next time, happy stitching

And the Winner is................

Firstly here is a picture of the bowl, no expense spared, with all the names in it.

I gave them a stir and pulled out a name:

Congratulations Nia - if you can email me and let me have your address I'll put the charts in the post to you.

Thank you to everyone who entered. I was really pleased so many did. I wish I could send you all a little something.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to stitch much this week as my second son has been poorly so will update a picture next week as he is much better so should be able to stitch as normal.

Until next time, happy stitching

Progress / Giveaway

This is my progress as of today of Vervaco's Temptation. I really pleased with how this is stitching up. I have had a couple of visits from the frog otherwise I think I might have got a bit more done.

Once I have finished getting the dinner ready I shall carry on with her.

When I offered my giveaway I forgot to post a closing date. Please forgive it is my First giveaway hopefully I will remember next time lol. Anyway I will keep my giveaway open for another week making the closing date 16 January 2011. If you want to enter please leave a comment on the giveaway post only - two posts down.

My ort jar would like to thank everyone for their lovely comments on its appearance. It seems to have won a reprieve lol.

Good luck to all those enjoying the different challenges across various blogs. I am loving watching your progress and find them very ummmm enabling. I trying not to look too closely as I have got enough to stitch already lol.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Making it's second appearance in a week is my ort jar. This is my first post for the TUSAL being run by Daffycat. I think, judging by some of the other ladies ort jars, my poor coffee jar is going to have to changed for something a bit more "upmarket" lol. But until then here is my orts as of today from the 1st January 2011. I just have to remember to label the posts - something I'm not very good at. I did it first today so I didn't forget lol.

It is all from Vervaco's Temptation formerly known as Lady in Blue. I discovered today on the packet that it is called Temptation and so from here on in will be called Temptation lol. Will post a picture on Sunday.

Until next time, happy stitching
