Wednesday 28 th May 2014......

Today I thought I would show you what I will be doing instead of what I have done... see I cannot show you any of what I have done because its all a surprise!  

I have been working on the Christmas swap.. I have now completed 2 and a half!! Ha h a yes almost finished them!  I still have to stitch the Round Robin design... my partner is the lovely Kim and I contacted her to ask some questions as I wanted to make something she would like... I think now I have chosen the right thing to stitch?!  We shall see when I send it to her!  I am hoping to do that and have it in the post by Monday.... or if I am side tracked again the in the post some time next week!! ha ha I think I do have June to stitch it ... it has to go quite far so the quicker I get it done the better!  And Kim I think is like me... keeping things secret and surprise is hard!  So kim if your reading this... I will stitch it and get it into the post as soon as I have done it!!  :)

Its really annoying on my part as I have been stitching loads but cannot show you... and I did think about stitching something else so that I can post it on my blog... but I know I would get side tracked and the things I need to make would not get done!  

Guess your wondering why I have put the Advent Animals as the top of the page??? Well I am really excited as the next animal has been released .... yippppeeeeeee!!!! 
Its just so cute too...  
Mary Mouse..

How wonderful is she!!!  I cannot wait to stitch her... Oh I have not stitched this one,... I borrowed her off the site to show you all.  

Here is what I have stitched so far....

Mary Mouse is going to look adorable next to these two.  Such a great thing to stitch too.. I loved stitching Katie Kitty and Polar Bear Pete... 

If you think this is something you would like to do you can still join in the fun... there is a Facebook page where we all chat and post our up dates... such a lovely group too. 

I also have a link direct to the Advent Animals on the designers blog... the link is in the right hand side bar, or look here...

I will post my progress once I start it... h ah a after I have done the other bits I need to first!
