I am so chuffed and PIF

I had entered a PIF (Pass It Forward) on a blog i read and I have just been notified that I won...... so over the course of the next 12 months Maria in Canada is going to stitch me something and send it me.

Now I am offering it on here so if you would like to be entered leave your details in a comment and I will get my son to draw a name on Sunday 21st December at 8pm UK time. The lucky winner will then have something sewn by me and sent to them over the next 12 months then they post the PIF on their blog. Good luck

I have started opening my exchange gifts ...... xx


I am in a Advent Exchange on Crafty Natter forum,

My gift for yesterday was a lovely blue pen with a Dolphin Charm. Today I received a Coaster, Keyring and Fridge Magnet. These are all empty for you to insert cross stitch or wahtever you like. I will probably put a small piece of Hardanger in each of mine. I will post pics of my exchange gifts on a weekly basis.

On the sewing front I went to my Hardanger Day at Colly's on Saturday and had a lovely time. I conquered driving in fog both ways to Derby... ain't I brave. I had a wonderful day.

I have been doing some more on my Pretty in Pink tablecloth... I will sort a progress pic of this over the weekend.

Also I have joined another exchange on Crafty Natter... this one is for a Christmas Ornament. I have been searching for a chart for a few weeks. I finally sorted this at the weekend and got craking on my Christmas Ornament. I can't show a pic till my partner has opened it on Christmas Day.

Thats all for now so catch yuo all soon and take care.

Big Hugs to All

One of these things was that we had the AGM for the Parents Association that I am on at Michael's school. I was elected Chair of the committee and my CH was elected Secretary. I have been Vice Chair for the last year though. Myra the previous Chair resigned as her daughter has now left the school.

On the sewing side I have been keeping up with my UFo nights ... my progress up to yet is ...

No Sewing Again tday...


I have had another busy day sorting extension out so no sewing.....

First thing this morning Michael and I cleaned the mess off the french doors and window in the extension. Then my ex hubby Alan, Michael and I fetched my table from my mums house. When we returned we put it back together and then put my new blinds up at french doors and window.

We then had lunch which my hubby cooked and I rested with backache whilst the men washed all the pots. Then when Dave had gone to work Alan helped me to scrub all the cupboards etc down in the kitchen.

So I am totally shattered so am gonna chill with a cuppa and watch some TV.

Catch you all soon.

What a Very Long Tiring Day !!!


Well what a busy tiring day today..... went to tip with a load of rubbish.... called into see my ex father-in-law. After this I called at Homebase to get some PVA Bond, Paint for extension, rollers and spray paint for DH's music cupboard.

I then returned home and had a cuppa. Then my ex husband (bless him) started to help me paint the internal walls of my large extension now my wall have been plastered. First we had to PVA bond the walls and ceilingto stop the paint soaking straight into them. We put two coats of white silk emulsion on the walls and three coats of white silk emulsion on the ceiling. It is very bright i there now. It did take us most of the afternoon and early evening as the extension ( to eventually incorporate a dining room and larger kitchen) is 18 foot wide by about 14 foot. We also had quite a few breaks for cups of tea / coffee.

He also laid down and fitted some of my old lounge carpet onto the concrete floor. This is gonna stay down until we can get our new kitchen and we get the floor tiled. Unfortunately I have to wait until my mums house sells (its been up nearly 2 years already) to get my new kitchen. Can anyone recommend where to get a kitchen from ?? Also then we will decorate stairs, landing and lounge. My lounge alone is 24 feet long. I can't wait to get a new three piece suite incorporating a new electric reclining sewing chair for me.

We then sat and had a chinese whilst watching X Factor ..... and we were completely shattered so no sewing for me today as ache too much.

Well I am going to rest now so catch you all soon
