Well I never....
How cute is this Christmas design? Just adorable I think... well there is a set of 3... and I was so excited as they came in my subscription of Cross Stitch Collection December 2014 issue 243 magazine.
If you have not guessed its a Prairie Schooler design... I love them!! And I know there are a few of you out there that adore them too... Frances being one of them! :)
Here is what they look like in the magazine...
Do you like them? I have decided to stitch one.. have to wait to see which one! ha ha I may even stitch all three!
Its really quite rare to find Prairie Schooler and other amazing designers like Blue Ribbon Designs and Lizzie Kate in UK magazines... but when they do appear its brilliant and I have to stitch them!
Ha ha can you tell I am just a little excited!?
Well... I have had to be taxi again, going places and waiting around so I took a little photo of our mugs when we stopped for a quick coffee break....
Yes it was Starbucks this time! Jon is the sugar lover with his coffee! Han feels all grown up now as she enjoys drinking caramel lattes when we go out for coffee! ha aha
I have some happy news and that is to say I have finished my Round Robin stitch for my next partner... its very different to what I have been doing, I just hope she likes it.... fingers crossed! I shall have that in the post this week.
Oh my... rather sad news now..
I have had my first Christmas disaster!
Well not bad only one I guess?!
Sad because I made it, and I really love making things... I have put it into a little post and if I have any more breakages then I have an idea for a project for myself on how to use and keep them! I mean how could I throw it away?? Its a robin and not only that, its in half! I know I am silly but just thought I would keep it for now!
So I am back to stitching now...
Some of you have been asking how I am... I am fine, taking things a lot slower.. damn anemia! My doctor has referred me to the hematology clinic to see about having iron injections, but it takes time. I have 2 speeds at the moment... slow and slower! But Thank You all for asking :)
Yes stitching.. I will start something tonight...yes one of those lovely Prairie Schooler designs I think!
Smiles to you all :)
