Part 4 and other Stuff!

Whoop!!! Whoop!!! Part 4 is in the bag! Well it's been for a while now, but I just haven't been able to get around to posting.

Stitching this has been such a dream! I've done x-stitch instead of the satin stitch for the hearty flowers...
Dawn of Spring - Part 4

And this is my Dawn of Spring in all it's glory :)

Dawn of Spring - designed by Ms Mouse
To all who encouraged me not to rip out at the beginning and keep my original colour choices a big THANK YOU! I am really loving how these colours are working together now :)

I've also done some more knitting, finishing a twill scarf for my little bug and her baby doll, Princess Lulu
Little Bug and Princess Lulu in their matching scarves
I've been trying to finish off a round robin piece too, and have also gone and signed myself up for two additioanl SALs....how clever am I!

I couldn't resist signing up for the Passione Ricamo Mystery Fairy SAL when I read about it on Monique's blog, and Abi Gurden over at The Stitch Specialist Yahoo Group has just opened up sign ups for her lovely hardanger sampler "A confetti of Hardanger". Do I really need more projects....ummmmmm.....ahhhh.......no comment!

And another piece of fantabulous news is that I won one of Nancy's (over at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe) Alphabet Ornament Collection Chart Packs! Can't wait for it to get here :)

And while on the topic of the wonderfully generous Nancy, she's hosting another super super giveaway - she will be selecting 30 stitchers to win in her Birthday giveaway so head on over and enter!

Have a super day!

Take care x x

Well now I just love your Dawn of Spring and the colours are so wonderful together, I won't say I told you so rofl but well I did say is all ;-p
Oh how cute is little bug and princess lulu in their scarves, gorgeous and the scarves are pretty cool to lol
Why am I not surprised you've signed on for more SAL's but you know what you enjoy them so what does it matter, you go for it.

I like the way the flowers look as cross stitch. And signing up for more Sals just keeps life more interesting.
