I had a very stressful week at the beginning of this month . I posted of a package to Love Quilts , and it decided to go missing along the way . It had five squares in , and two of them had deadlines for the end of this month , so I was faced with the possibility of having to re-stitch three squares in a very short space of time . Not a prospect I was looking forward to .
Fortunately, they did turn up , but were held to ransom as the stamp/postage label had somehow become separated from the envelope.After a week of waiting , I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It took me a while to come down and my stitching and blogging mojo are still not at 100 % .
Added to that , my W key has come adrift , which makes typing a little difficult ,lol. It's amazing how often you need to press W.
Anyway , on to good things. I managed to finish another a/c square for LQUK , which was in the envelope . Quite pleased with this one.
And , I was a very lucky winner of a give away that Lisa was having , and what a gorgeous package of goodies I received.
The lovely gifts were all parcelled up in this gorgeous fabric and ribbon , but I was too eager to see what was inside to remember to take before picture.
Fantastic charts , just to my taste .
And , last but definitely not least , the most gorgeous fob . These pictures do not do it justice , it is absolutely beautiful .
Lisa , Thank you again so much , I love everything and can't wait to use it .
I also placed a small (yeah right , who am I kidding ?) order with Katz X Stitch with some of my Christmas money . Stocked up on some DMC and some fabric and bobbins .
Just before Christmas , a lady offered some DMC threads on the LQ facebook page as a donation , so myself and one of the other members said we'd pay a donation to LQ for the threads ,as usually the cash is more useful with people using their own stash to stitch the squares.
Anyway , I received 150 skeins of DMC . They are old as have the paper tabs on , and some of them are very grubby,but I'm sure they will come in useful . So , I have been very busy winding nearly 200 skeins of floss onto bobbins . not got a pic at the moment ,so will show that next time .
Well, think that's all for now. Off to hopefully get some stitches in .
Thanks for dropping by ,
