Non Stitchy but my bookwormish tendancies have won :)

I am addicted to Debbie Macomber's books at the moment, in perticular are 'The Shop On Blossom Street' & 'A Good Yarn'. There are more books in the series but so far I have read these two and I am hooked!! Basically they are fictional stories about a knitting shop on blossom street called 'A Good Yarn' and the woman who runs the shop Lydia and her friends. Well worth a read even if like myself you don't actually knit!!

remember me?

I'm back finally! Works been pretty all over the place the last few weeks so I haven't been able to get much stitching done, almost finished Tom Mouse and then I'll be able to finish off the Newtons Law SAL (hopefully) before I have to start stitching my parent anniversary card, a mother's day card & my nan's birthday card. The phrase *so many stitches, so little time* springs to mind :) Happy Stitching everyone! Photos will be posted if I ever get the time!

more finishes!!!

have finished the dusting fairy so only the laundry & weary fairies to go! Also finished a cute hello kitty design for my partner's youngest daughter's birthday in March. Will post pictures up before the end of today :) Now working on a tom mouse design from an old issue of cross stitch quick for his eldest daughter which is stitching up very quickly. Also bought myself a large set of drawers from Argos to hold my stitchy stash as after the last haul from the show at Sandown, I've run out of room!! Shall have to stop buying stash & start stitching some of it I think :-)
