I'm so excited

and I just can't hide it. Sorry that song is in my head. The reason for my excitedness - I have been adopted by Angela at http://hookedonstitches.blogspot.com/. Pop over and have a look at the gorgeous stitching and finishing she does and I am going to be a lucky receipient throughout the year. How lucky am I. There is already something winging it away across the pond and I can't wait to see it lol.

I am also very pleased to show my first finish of 2011 - yes my first! Let me introudce you to Belle Pepper.

Stitched on 14ct Beige Marble Aida

Using Crescent Colours and DMC Threads



I worked on Belle last week to finish her off after I had done some spring cleaning so poor old Temptation has been left again although I did stitch on her last night and will today as part of the IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) pop over to http://joysze.blogspot.com/ to see what its all about and who's in it as there is some lovely stitching going on.

Until next time, happy stitching

Lucky girl to be adopted by Angela, can't wait to see how you're spoilt throughout the year.
Congratulations on finishing Belle, she looks gorgeous. I'm way behind with Winter Band Sampler I'm afraid, all because I started it 2x2 on 28ct and I no longer enjoy this very much, but I'm persevering and going to do more on it tonight, so I'll get there eventually.

Hello Leslyanne!
I am new to stiching and blogging, I am working on my first cross stich project ever, and I made my first blog about 3 weeks ago.
Your blog is really nice, and I admire your beautiful finishes:)
Greetings from Judit from Hungary:)
