Thank you all for your kind comments regarding my shoulder.  It is much better although I do get the very odd twinge.  I have managed to stitch a little in the last week and have been working on my HAED Ariadne. I am hoping to get the first page finished next time I pick her up.  This week I will be stitching on my Ornament SAL with Angela but won't be able to show it for a couple of weeks as my mum, dad and sister are going to Ireland and taking my camera with them.

You still have time to enter my giveaway on the post below.  I am hoping to sort some more charts out to go with it when I have some time off this week.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne

Unfortunately due to a shoulder injury, I have no idea what I did, but I couldn't stitch this weekend for IHSW.  I am absolutely gutted as I was really looking forward to it.  My shoulder seems much better so hopefully I will get to stitch this week.

Next up is my TUSAL.  I am a little late as I didn't realise until lots of posts were popping up in blog land showing tusals.

Now onto my giveaway.  I am very pleased that Yiota, who has stunning  cross stitch kits  on her website. click the link to see, very kindly offered this lovely Biscourni kit for my giveaway. it includes everything to make it up also. I am also adding some LHN charts that I have but haven't had time to find in my stash.  So if you are interested in winning this lovely kit and the LHN charts please leave a comment on this post only.  I am going to draw the chart on my blogaversary which is in 25 days time.

Ariadne SAL

Here is my progress on my Ariadne SAL on Facebook.  I stitched on her Monday to Monday using 18 ct magic guide aida 2 x 1.  I am pleased with my progress and hope to stitch on her later on in May.

This week I am working some more on my Round Robin piece as the mailing date is getting nearer and as it is IHSW, click the link if you want to join, I am hoping to work on my Ornament SAL with Angela.

Come back next week as I am going to have a giveaway for my blogaversary and 200+ followers and have something a little special to offer but more about that next week.

Until next time, happy stitching

Round Robin / Gifts

I think I have been teasing you for long enough.  Here is my piece for the Round Robin.  I am sure many of you will recognise it.  I am stitching Lizzie Kate's 6 Fat Snowmen.  I have stitched the first one and plan on stitching the bird house next week before it goes on it's travels.  I will stitch the last one when it returns.  I have really enjoyed stitching on it this week and look forward to stitching on the other pieces that will come my way.

It was the lovely Michelle's birthday this week and I decided to send her a little gift to wish her a happy birthday and thank her for her friendship.  I stitched this design in January from the JCS Magazine and backed it with the fabric in the background.  I am pleased to say Michelle loved it despite my very bad finishing.  This piece just didn't finish very well despite however many times I unpicked and stitched it again. 

Talking of gifts I was very lucky to receive a gift from Elaine.  She sent me the lovely spring pillow and threads you see below as I had lent her one of my charts.  Thank you Elaine I love my spring pillow and the threads.

That's all from me this week I am off to start my new HAED Ariadne.

Until next time, happy stitching
