A little while ago I entered a competition on Lynette Andersons designs blog page, never thought for one minute I would be chosen! HERE is the blog page for you to go see all the details as I don't want to get in trouble by copying her photos! So YES!!! I am VERY VERY excited about winning :) ooooooh seriously excited!! I love all Lynettes designs and her fabric is so pretty... Eeeeek!! First I heard of it was when I saw an email ..... Eeeek!! I will happily show you all what I was lucky enough to receive when it arrives...OMG! It's coming all the way from Australia!
That is a nice piece of happy news :)
Welł.... Me.... Hmmmm not so happy things going on here I am afraid :(
It seems no matter how hard I try to get better nothing is working, I am not ready to quit yet though! I have been feeling rather sick and so tired... On top of all the usual lower back/coccyx and knee pain! My doctor sent out a nurse to take bloods off me last week and this morning they came again to take more blood! Appears on top of anaemia I now have vitamin d deficiency.... I am waiting for the doctor to call and explain all the blood results to me on Thursday. I hope nothing else was picked up, I mean I already have a lot to deal with!! I will let you know when I do lol
As for my knee... Ha ha I had an appointment then it was cancelled and now I have to wait again! My doctor said these things happen!! It's ok I have only been waiting all year to see a knee specialist! What's a bit more time! Ha ha on the doctor front though I am going to see a skeletal specialist... For the pain in my lower back/coccyx...that is the 2 nd December! Not long now! Let's hope that one does not get cancelled!?
Right enough chat as I think this post is lacking colour! Here is something I made a few days ago for my mum, to put on her table with some Christmas treats on... I call it Santa scrappy mat!
It's by no means perfect... Ha ha that is why it's a scrappy mat! And it's actually the first time I have tried quilting. I hand stitched all the squares together first then when assembled it machine stitched the lines through. I like the way my applique is not perfect too... It's ok as my mum likes it!
What else have I been up to...
As your all probably aware, I posted a little gift to Vickie at A Stitchers Story... Just realised I had not shown you all!!
This is how it all started....
Then I had to decide what fabric to use....
Pink yes... But I was not sure..
So opted for something a little more Christmassy.....
I made the poodle designs, in a close a colour to all three sweeties.. Appliqued it on the fabric then attempted to make a little bag! For the doggy goodies..
Filled up ready to post...
I was thrilled to read that all three poodles approved the contents!

Wonderful!!! I also included a little gift for Vickie too... She liked my pansy needle minder so much I sent it to her!
Oooooooh yes!! Some more exciting news for you all, Wednesday I will be going out!! Ha ha I know it's awesome news! Ha ha I will be using a scooter down town and visiting the post office! Eeeeek! I have a lot, an awful lot of 'goodies' to post!! 25 things in total! I have been waiting so long to do this and I am so excited that I managed to do it! Watch your post boxes! More on this later!!
Well got to go.... Oh yes, I need to find my stitching glasses, put them somewhere? This is why I have not been doing any cross stitch! I need them to see!!!! I will get Han to have a look!
Smiles and happy smiles to you all :)
