notice anything different about me?
No ~ I've not had my hair done
but I have been prettified
here on my blog
I hope you like what you see so far
I keep popping back to see if I'm still looking as pretty
and yes I am!
(but more on that in a mo)
Well ..... by the skin of my teeth
(such an odd saying)
here is February's cross stitch
~ hot out of the hoop ~
He is such a cute little fellow
look at those eyes .....
my only small gripe is that 'February' is not so easy to read
but maybe that's just me
I used the suggested colours
but actually I wish I had changed that one
I thought about it
I knew when I was stitching it, but I stupidly carried on
I blame it on that stressful day when the plumbers were here!
However I LOVE the silver sparkly thread
Sparkly is my favourite colour.

I'm loving my new look
I'm hoping that you like it too?
I feel light and airy
pretty and fresh
I felt like I had grown out of my old look
It did me well though
I'd had it for almost three years, since the very beginning in fact
The very clever (and patient!) Angie Spurgeon did all of this for me
I'd had my heart set on a watercolour wreath
so Angie set to work with her real watercolours
painting beautiful violets
Oh ..... please take note of the teeny tiny bee ..... he was a MUST
Thank you so much Angie
I AbSoLuTeLy adore it
I still have lots of 'tweaking' to do over the next few weeks
changing bits and bobs around
I'll do a bit here and there whenever I have a little spare time.
An exciting package arrived in the post a few days ago .....
Tilda have launched some new fabrics
Oh My Goodness ..... they are beyond pretty
I've decided to make my Mum a hot water bottle cover
for Mother's day with them
I just hope I can get it done in time
My lovely boy is doing well but is mighty glad that it's Friday
poor thing is shattered.
Sweet B will be coming home later for the weekend
Some lovely girl time is in store
a shopping trip is planned for tomorrow
Thank you for popping by
and for all of your kind messages on my last post
Have a gorgeous weekend my bloggy friends
