Catching Up.

Hi everyone .
I do not know where my mind has been lately, I'm forgetting so many things ,lol . The good news is , it means I've got plenty to show you now.
I've been forgetting to show off the lovely gift I received from a friend for Christmas , so here it is . My friend is very talented , and I've been lucky to receive some lovely things that she has created. I've even been lucky enough to keep some of them , lol , as my kids keep pinching them.
I've also been forgetting to show the lovely charts I won in Barbs' giveaway . (Blogger is still not letting me put a link in here )
Anyway , I have plans for these little cuties , so thanks again Barb. x
The last RAK has arrived safe and sound . I stitched up this lovely chart . If I remember correctly , it's a freebie from Primitive Betty , but I will check on that. Apologies if I'm wrong.
I turned it into a little pillow and sent it to Mylene . I'm glad to say that it got to her safely ,and she likes it .I got my stitchy bug back , but didn't know what to do so I decided to finally finish this little guy. That blanket was sending me potty last time I was stitching it , so it got put away for a while ,but once I set myself to finishing it , it didn't take long . Not sure what to do with him now , maybe a bag ,but we'll see. I may yet stitch some more Newton charts.
While I was debating on what to stitch , I really wanted to start a new project but I've got so many in my stash I didn't know where to start or what with . I finally narrowed it down to two I needed to start soon ,and this one won out , purely because I've had it longer . I can't believe that it's two years since I bought this chart pack . LK , ABC Lessons . Not loads of progress , but I'm enjoying working on it. It can be slow going with doing it stitch by stitch , and I'm having to get used to holding the frame again after working in hand for so long , but so far , so good. With all these new starts , I have also had some finishes. I made some gifts for Mothers Day . The little bird has gone down very well , both my kids want one , so I have another one stitched and one part done , and my SIL wants me to make some for her for Easter , so lots of birds coming up ,lol.
And here's what my lovely pair got me for Mothers Day (With a little help from Daddy).

Some good viewing coming up.

Thanks for dropping by ,

Talented friend you have there Cath. Love the bear in bed ,how about a holder for pjs.The bird is so sweet too I could see that on a twig tree. The pillow is gorgeous and I had better get my needle out as I need a finish to keep me motivated. Take care.Look forward to the next post lol.

I really love the pillow you've made for me, yes it is of primitive betty, as i've stitched it twice before and sent out as gifts so i am so happy to receive one. Again, thank you so much.

Love the LK you've started and what cuties you've made for gifts especially the little birdie.
