A Winner, A SAL and some new stash

And the winner of the Ann Medd giveaway is .........

Kathy Ellen Congratulations, I hope that you get as much enjoyment out of this wonderful design as I did, Please could I have your address.

I am participating in a SAL of Scarlett Letter's SDW Sampler with Michelle who doesn't have a blog at present but I will be posting pictures as we go along of both our samplers.

SDW Sampler - Scarlett Letter

We hope to stitch one evening each week. If anyone would like to join us you would be very welcome. It is a beautiful and unusual  sampler and one I will be proud to complete.

I love Scarlett Letter and spend hours studying their website. I have been very naughty this week and ordered the following kits in silk.

English Transistional Sampler  1711


Dorcas Haynes 1720


Elizabeth Simon 1758

If I could I would have bought many more.

I also bought some charts from Laurie at Corgi Cottage who is having a stash sale. Check out the link there are many beautiufl charts.

I gave in last night and started Blue Ribbon. It is wonderful to be working on 35ct with AVS silks, I could not resist any longer.

We are off to visit my MIL and then hopefully a round of golf. Downton is on tonight so not much stitching today.

Poppy is due to have her stitches out tomorrow, bless her. The Thyroid medication has continued to make a huge difference.

To all my pin pals a big thank you for your continued support and encouragement. You have given me so much confidence to share my stitching journey through life.
