I'm Still Here

First up I want to apologize for the photos. It is as my DH calls a "Baby Weather" sort of day - wet and windy lol. It is one of those very dark grey, misty, wet and very windy sort of days. You get the picture lol. One of those days where it is good to be inside. I suppose you could call it bleak, but it isn't good for taking photos.

I haven't been blogging, but I still have been stitching. I have been plodding along on Ann Grant plus another sampler. Here is my progress on Ann and the end is very near. I just have to do a little bit more around the house along with finishing off the lawn plus the rest of the border and she will be finished. Ann and I have had a few moments along the way where she has nearly been in the fire, but I have pressed on with her and I will be glad when she is finished. She is really a beautiful sampler and I think I would have regretted her going in with the wood to keep me warm lol. But there were a few times when I was very tempted.

I thought that I would show you one of my Mother's Day presents from my children. It is a very special Stacy Nash piece that my LNS has. It is one of those special Stacy Nash Clubs and my LNS is the only shop to have this piece along with a few more that are coming. One is in the mail as we speak. Isn't it lovely. I did this a few days after they gave it to me which set on off on a Stacy Nash kick.

This is the Schoolgirl Pinkeep Drum. I already have it, but decided to make it a bit different by not doing the Peacock that goes on top.

I love this little piece. It is the Robin Pinkeep. I also have the Bluebird. I just have to sit down and do it.

I was also fortunate to win this lovely little booklet on Julie and Becky's lovely blog A Note Of Friendship I just noticed that there is more on the lovely story of Pandora. I have been enjoying reading this story so I should go off and read it.

Nothing much else to report. You know the old saying. No news is good news lol. My DH's leg is a lot better thank goodness, but it still lets him know that it is there.

Thank you for stopping my. I really enjoy meeting everybody who leaves a comment.
