My photo
Hi my name is Louise (Lou) and I am a craftaholic. I am in my mid twenties and live in wonderful Scotland. My addictions are jewelry making and cross stitching, I do knit and love to try other things, but these are the two that have stuck. I have been stitching ever since i can remember, but only started stitching properly when i was pregnant with my first daughter. I manage to get my fix in between looking after my two angels and hubby.

A little giveaway

I know my post yesterday mentioned it would probably be my last but as I was sorting through my collection of cross stitch magazines I came across all of the freebie kits I have. These will probably just lie in a box somewhere begging to be stitched so I thought why not pass them on to someone who will use them.

I have no camera to take pictures of what I have as I cannot for the life of me remember which box it is in and don't want to go emptying the boxes to find it, however there are some lovely kits in there ranging from cute teddies to florals and animals. If I remember rightly there are a couple of Margaret Sherry kits there too.

Along with the kits I am also offering to make a braided bangle from copper with your choice of colour of beads, if you are not a wearer of jewelry I will whip up a custom scissor fob with a one of a kind charm hand made by moi.

To be entered into the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your best story of moving home. This could be a disaster story or something funny.

I have not yet decided how many winners there will be, this will all be decided once I am moved and back on-line. There is a deadline though of the 14th June (my youngest daughters birthday).

Good luck and I look forward to reading your stories.

Lou xx

Just a quick update

OK so we are still waiting to be able to move, but the good news is that it should be next week at the latest (or so we've been told) that we get the keys to the new house. And my kind neighbours have been good enough to keep reminding us of why we want to move lol....

I have been squeezing some stitching time in between packing boxes, but as it is as HEAD design with lots of colour changes I am not making much progress and have packed my camera too so I cant even show a picture of the little progress that has been made. I have reached the little angels face (you can see the picture of what it should look like on the sidebar), I am not really sure if I like the colours the chart calls for though. Her little face is a little orange looking but I am hoping that once the rest of the colours are added then the orange will be toned down a little. As soon as I am moved and get my hands on my camera again I will post a picture.

This will probably be my last update before I move so wish me luck that it all goes as smoothly as moving house can go.
