What's next and Awards

Ok, so I've been having a bit of a break from stitching this week. I've sort of known what I was going to do next, but have had a few nights relaxing after work to get my needle hand back into gear and ready for my next project.

I'm probably like a cracked record but I've picked another Shepherd's Bush winter themed kit. This one's called Wooly Winter and it's a long, narrow sampler but not a very big one.

SHEPHERD'S BUSH - Wooly Winter

The linen is a 32ct Twilight Blue, with Au Ver A Soie silk threads (no variegated one this time).

I was tossing up whether to do this or Snow Patch for my last start, and Snow Patch ended up winning. So instead of looking at what else I could do, I decided to pick Wooly Winter as the next project.

I've also received a few Awards lately from some lovely ladies. It's so kind of them to send them my way.

The first is from Hilda ~

Another from Natalie ~

Then a third from Lucy ~

You're all very sweet to send these my way. I don't seek any accolades when doing my blog, only enjoyment for myself and others who want to drop by to see what I'm doing. It's also a way to share information on my favourite hobby, needlework. I love that people are inspired by my works, and that I too, am with theirs. Please drop by these ladies blogs to see what delights they may inspire us with. I am not passing on these awards as I do find this a difficult task, but believe me when I say that I am honoured to have received them. :)

Happy stitching!

The fun of beginning a new project! You are always so disciplined to finish one before picking up the next - very impressive quality. I on the other hand have several going at once.

I look forward, as always, to seeing your progress

Oh lucky you to be starting a new project. SB's are always so sweet when they're finished. It's so fun to have one of those around to pick up and do. Can't wait to see your progress.
