I have been very lucky recently with winning 3 giveaways. First up was Cath at The stitchin' chicken and below are the lovely goodies she sent me. I love the scissors - they are compact and cut well. I have been having a nightmare lately and have had to chop great chunks out of my Confetti of Hardanger. I love these JBW designs so was fantastic. The scissor fob is SO pretty and goes well with the new scissors. And of course it is impossible to have too much fabric or too many threads...hehehe. I was thrilled to bits with everything. THANK YOU CATH!!!

Then only a few days later I was fortunate enough to win again. This time it was from Gaynor Stitchers Anon. Below is the picture of all the gorgeous goodies she chose for me. There were some gorgeous threads both metallics and variegated. A gorgeous piece of fabric which is called Sage and looks absolutely nothing like how I have photographed it. She also sent me one of the charts from my wish list - it's the 2012 LK Santa. There is a beautiful, beautiful little pillow which has lovely stitching and amazing finishing, I wish mine was so neat. And finally...so rick rack in 4 fab colours. Thank you SO much Gaynor!!

The third one was just the other day and was from Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. I have been lucky enough to win her giveaway for Home of a Needleworker. I think she took pity on me and my dust!!!
Anyway enough of my good fortune and on to the stitching progress.
First up is the absolute bane of my life at the moment. Confetti of Hardanger by Abi Gurden is gorgeous...well it is to look at. I am having real problems in placing each part. I had to give up on the flowers as they were just too hard for me. So I thought I would move onto the next part which is a simple kloster block 'border'. How easy can it be? Hahahaha...wrong. I have restitched the entire border 4....yes...4 times. It was frustrating to be polite!!! I am really hoping that the outer kloster block border won't give me so many problems. Fingers crossed.....
