First up here's my Beatrix Potter progress for August:
I am pleased as I am still ahead to finish this by the end of the year! I keep counting those motifs down. I am starting to run a littlw low on the darkest shade so I am going to be using that shade sparingly. I am feeling quite bad that I haven't put much into my Mary Wigham so I have decided that Mary will be my main focus next year! I need to get counting those motifs now.
I got a lovely parcel through the post today. Some time back, Paula Sibbald from Kelmscott Designs said she liked the Beatrix Potter SAL I set up and she'd like to contribute to the end of year giveaway drawing that I am going to do. She also said she'd liek to send me a littel something as well for setting it all up and running it etc although I said it was no hardship on my part lol. Today she sent through the package which contained two packets - one for the giveaway (I have posted on the blog) and one for me!!
I was amazed! She has practically sent me the same thing as the giveaway prize! This was a wonderful surprise and it really REALLY made my day. I have been ill now for 17 days now and although I am a lot better, I am still not 100%. So this really cheered me up. If you're interested in any of these wonderful stitcher's accessories, please take a look at Paula's site:
Life is taking its toll on me at the moment and time is of the essence. This is why I haven't been blogging a lot and I have been struggling to leave comments for all the blogs I read. Please know that I am reading and getting lots of inspiration from everyone. A big Thank You to everyone who takes time to read me and comment. You will never know how much those comments mean to me.
Here comes another month.
