Your all so nice...


Hello lovely friends :)
I hope you are all well.... stitching or making things? 
I have been really busy..

Firstly, Thank You to all of you that reassured me about the CBT and counselling, I feel so much better.  And you all be pleased to know I think my sleeping pattern is improving :)  Went to bed last night around 12 due to getting back home after collecting Han from a concert.  And my mum phoned me at 9 am this morning to get me up so that I can hopefully go to bed at a 'normal' hour this evening.  Its looking hopeful...

Ok stitching wise.. I have just literally finished my wonderful sheep design.  Its a Little House Needleworks design called "Warm Winter Woolens" and I really enjoyed stitching it.

I wanted to put it on my wall... the first of many sheep designs I hope!  A kind of 'sheep' wall! ha ha  or baa baa!

Here it is.. start to finish :)















Hope you like my sheep?

Oooh I must tell you all some wonderful...

A little while ago I made a small donation to Stitchers Anon  for Gaynor's charity event to raise money for breast cancer.  I was delighted to find my raffle ticket was chosen :)  How wonderful!!  I was able to choose from the wonderful prizes and kind donations made by people for this event.  I am happy to say I chose a wonderful chart donated very kindly by Ingrid of Mii Stitch .. such a pretty chart.. 

And one to stitch for Easter...


Thank You very much Gaynor and Ingrid :)


I had more Happy post today... yes I did!!

I could not believe it a little while ago when Frances from A Symphony Of Stitches had a giveaway of several books and charts.  I was a little shocked as she very kindly chose me for one of her beautiful books. Thank You very very much Frances :)

I have something in mind from the book already to stitch...




How lovely is this book!! 

Ooooh yes... 

One last thing to tell you all about..

We have a celebrity in our midst!...
