A catch up

Well for me the Christmas holidays are extremely slow for stitching. DH is home over Christmas and he doesn't sit still, hes always got to be doing something... so I feel lazy sitting and stitching when hes rushing round cleaning up :)

In the mail on Saturday I got an amazing package from Barb. I won her giveaway for the Be True chart. Barb also included the threads and fabric for the design, a gorgeous pair of scissors and a lovely photo magnet (? correct me if I'm wrong Barb)

Thank you so much Barbara!!

I also realised that I haven't shown you the last thing I was stitching

Venetian Opulence as I last stitched on her April 20th 2009!

April 20th 09

And as I just stitched on her

In case you can't tell, lol, I stitched more on the arch and her skin.

At the moment I am stitching more on Magnolia.

I will post an update later in the week :D
