It's Karen from Knitalatte

Congratulations Karen!! Please send me an email with your snail mail address and I'll get them sent off to you very soon. Email in my profile. Please feel free to share them out if you can bear to part with any of them. Some people love them and some hate them!

Guess what?? I have a stitchy update.

I haven't worked on any stitching for about a month or a good few weeks at the very least. But Tracy and I started up our HAED SAL on Thursday night again and I have zipped along with it. So here is my Fragile Heart progress:

May update

The eye was just amazing to do. It has some sparkly Petite braid from Rainbow Gallery in it and it looks amazing! I am planning a trip to Tracy's in a couple of weeks and hope to have this page complete by then. Looks like my stitchy mojo is back! Happy to announce that Lisa will be joining us as well every Thursday night. It is quite a special SAL as we text each other before and after pictures so it makes it all a bit more personal and brings us closer somehow.

So that's all for me for now. I have been drooling over lots of the upcoming crochet books coming out soon on Amazon. There is one with a Kangaroo on the cover and I have been reading this to my boy and he loves it:

Here's the upcoming book....

So I am thinking... BLUE... Kangaroo!! I'm just not so confident that I will be able to make it though. hmmmmm....

Have a lovely week everyone.

Congratulations to Karen, I'm sure she will enjoy her sweets. Your earlier post had reminded me I hadn't had any chocolate limes for ages, I soon remedied that and have just finished the packet, yum.
Lovely eye on your Haed. I'm sure you will manage to crochet a blue Kangaroo, he sounds a lot of fun.

Thanks for visiting Hazel, your cross stitch is gorgeous, I've never seen designs like that before, must investigate further, my teenage daughter would love it.

I am enjoying reading the "good book", although some parts take a little understanding.

That cuddly crochet book looks amazing, especially the kangaroo.........hope you give it a go.

I adore poppies! What a gorgeous pic!

Definitely mint ice cream--it's the cool green. I don't know those candies, but they are a warm green. :)

I hear you about the "last few years" bit. Glad that you are hanging in there; I love your blog. :)

You are so sweet to have offered the chocolate limes for int'l giveaway. Are they really so good? I'll have to look out for them, I bet I can find some here or in the city--especially with Royal Wedding Fever having struck recently. :)

That eye is lovely; such velvety depth. :)

I've actually been crocheting a tinsy bit this week, myself :D

Lisa said...

I bet Karen loves the choc limes, I know I used to, will have to look out for them again sometime.
Fragile Heart is looking gorgeous, the colours in the Hannah Lynn Disney charts are just so lovely.

Siobhan said...

Sara said...

Congrats to your winner! Your HAED is gorgeous, I got the itch to start a new project today and chose a HAED too. Hope to see more pics soon.
