Weekly Update...

Thanks to Riona over at Oubliette I won her pool on when she would get her RR finished. I was the closest in date selection.

Another update is that I probably wont get my blog updated for a couple of weeks as I need to fly home to New Zealand tonight to deal with some family things, I don't feel like talking about it to much at the moment......................

Sorry about the quality of this photo but didn't realise it was that bad until I had packaged up the pincushion and put it in the post box LOL

What Would You Do??? And More....

Okay, I was stitching away on my sampler over the Easter Weekend and I have done the house, left side of fence, right side of fence and started on the tree but...............I am about 2 squares out in my stitching which means that the tallest branch on the tree will actually touch the border on the right hand side. NOW would you:
(a) continue stitching and go with the flow or
(b) frog that complete section and start it again?
All comments greatfully accepted.

Now on to something lighter..

Chunky Chooky is having a giveaway so head on over and check it out :-)
