New Year, different promise

 I find myself with not alot of stitching time and very little interest in doing anything.
I have done one small pattern in bottom right corner, I do have some over stitching to do, I want to finish this and make it into a cushion for Fliss, it's her style and colours, she already knows, I would have liked to have it finished for her birthday next Monday, but that's a bit too much work.
 This year, for this blog I have made myself a different promise, I have been thinking of doing a giveaway for a while, but I prefer to do something for the followers I already have, so through out this year, each month I am going to to a RAK for a few of my followers.
My 1st RAK is for my newest follower http://ricketyjo.blogspot.com/, I'm not sure if her name is Jo, but in her 1st blog for this year, she states she would like to sew Lizzie Kate and do something for halloween, so I am sending her the items below.
 I fancy doing something with these beads, I have had them for ages, sat in my bead drawer, I love the colours, I am thinking of making a tree decoration.

I am off work for a couple of days, I feel as if I have flu, but without the cold, I don't like to take sick leave but I ache so much, hopefully a few days rest will help, it was very busy time over the New Year, I think I probably over did things. We have no real plans over the weekend, Josh wants to take us to a local fort for a visit on Saturday. I should do some cleaning now the Christmas decorations are all packed away again.


  1. I Love the cross stitching - I have been following it as it has been growing it is so pretty

  2. That's a lovely way to do a giveaway. Congratulations 'ricketyjo' you have a lovely treat heading your way! The bunting on the front of the mag looks cool.

  3. Hope you are feeling better soon therevis a horrible virus going round. If you can will you send the link for Sampler. I did go back on the site but failed to find how I could purchase it.

    It is so beautiful can't wait to see the finish.

  4. Oh my goodness, so many thanks, you completely made my day! I was on a train and saw your photos of your stitching and handed my hubby the phone saying 'I want my work to look that neat and intricate' and then when he handed me the phone back, I saw the next bit and I nearly started jumping up and down on the train I was that excited!! So very kind of you, can't thank you enough :)
