Apologies blog friends for an enforced absence the last couple of days. Since Saturday we had problems with our server and only today got to the source of issue.
I'm so relieved to be back on line and able to get in touch with you all again - made me realize how much the internet means to me - I felt very bereft and anxious to get back on!!
I'm trying to catch up with most recent posts. So please forgive my lack of commenting on your blogs.
I've only been able to do a little bit of stitching on my bunny sampler but he's definitely looking more like a bunny~
I'm curious to know from other cross stitchers what way you go about stitching out the pattern.
Do you start from the middle or start from a corner or an edge like I do - sometimes I stitch from left to right if it's a sampler or text.
Being self taught and a relative new comer I just wonder if there's a better way to go about things - I'm too random and 'all over the place' as my dear dad told me once when watching me do housework as a teenager!!! I can laugh about it now!!lol!
I'm also working on another little piece which I hope you'll come back to see soon - it's quite pretty and this is just a teaser~
And now to the giveaway mentioned in the title. Kim, formerly of Valley Primitives Gift Shoppe has decided to relaunch her blog and has had to start again from scratch. Kim is one of the loveliest bloggers to get to know and her stitching is just awesome. So her new blog is called Valley Primitive Stitches and Kim is holding a Spring giveaway to launch it.
Her are the wonderful hand stitched items Kim is including as well as the candle~
The drawing is on March 20 and I know you'll want in on this as well as helping Kim too!
So just click here to sign up!
Thanks once again for your lovely comments - you all help more than you know!
