Can I squeeze in a quick one??

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2008 is a happy and prosperous one for you all. Was not going to post till baby came but a couple of things have happened that I just need to write about. First off I am so pleased to announce that I won the cross stitchers lottery!!! I can't tell you how chuffed I am to be recieving so many lovely stitched pieces. I look forward to recieving some great gifts in the post!

Also, today I recieved this beautiful wall hanging from Judith!
Gift from Judth Jan08

Its so pretty Judith. Thank you.

I have also been adding to my stash! Well, I'm not giving up my favourite hobby just because we are adding to our family lol. Just a short break perhaps. I figured that if I didn't get these charts now then maybe I'd never get them. The only place I cound find these charts was Wyndham Needleworks. Let me know if you know of another supplier of Exampler Dames designs. I only found two other suppliers but their stock of charts was low. So here are what I ordered:

Examplar Dames "Love"
Examplar Dames "Faith"
Examplar Dames "Prosperity"
Indigo Rose "Mary's Pin Pillow"
Indigo Rose "Peek a boo Pin Cushion"
Carriage House Samplings "Folk Art Pincushions"

So just a last splurge with some Christmas money I got this year. It might be a while before I splurge again.

I have also nearly finished Simple Little Quaker. I am into the last page and am pleased with how it is turnign out. If I don't get it finished before I go into the hospital then I shall be taking it in with me!! I don't know what I'll be taking in if I do get it finished - maybe my Patchwork. Or maybe a little biscornu design or something. I will be staying in for a few days to recover from the c section and dh will be at home in the evenings with dd so I may as well take something in to occupy myself with.

Oh also to thank Tracy for her lovely Christmas treats I sent her a parcel and amm pleased to say it arrived safely. Unfortunately I didn't take pics of what I sent but you can find it on her blog.

Until baby arrives then.......

Take care of yourself. Look forward to hearing from you after the beby arrives and you get settled back in.
