Where Did You Get That Hat..

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I did, with lots of lovely stash and other things, and a day spent with all my family over at my sons house.

Yesterday it was just Keith and I and we decided we were just going to spend the day relaxing, which for me meant stitching. I finished Charlotte just after lunch. She wouldnt quite fit in the scanner so there are a few stitches out of site at both the top and bottom. Also there is a big shadow down one side where I had to fold the fabric, but I think you get the idea. I am thrilled with her. She was started on the 6th November 2006 and finished on 26th December 2007. Amelia will be taking her place in my rota.


I had said that I was not going to restart my rota until the new year so thought I would do one of the small VS Beyond Cross Stitch hearts I had for Christmas. I got England and Holland and I decided to do England first. We have been over at my daughters this afternoon as the poor lamb is feeling really ill with a cold and high temperature, I felt awful leaving her and was tempted to bring her home with us but I think going out into the bitter cold might have made things worse. Anyway when we got home I sat down and finished England so I can show you that too.
I am going to do another of these International Hearts next but this time I am going to do Scotland, which was a Christmas present from last year. With any luck I might just get another finish this year.
Thank you again to all the wonderful people who visit my little nook to take a peek and sometimes leave a comment. It is so much appreciated, after all without your visits this would just be a diary and no more, so thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
