Sorry that I can't blog or chat much. I will be back when my head is in the game.
Take care x

To celebrate Jo from Serendipitous Stitching getting 500 followers, she has asked us all to take part in a blog hop. I've loved doing this as its great getting to see more people and their stitching.
My blogger that I am featuring is Evalina from This and That. Evalina is a proud patriot of Canada although originally of Polish descent, even going so far as posting 101 things she loves about Canada. As I'm a relatively new stitcher, I don't really have anything I've stitched that may appeal to Evalina but I did find this on the Internet that made me think of you!!
Hope you all enjoy my featured post and the rest of the blog hop. I'm excited to see what everyone else posts!!
Until next time...happy stitching!

Hope you are all well! I'll kick off with my TUSAL which is hosted by Daffycat. It's where we post pictures of our thread ends (ORTs) and show them off each month as a way of gauging how much, or little, stitching we've got done...
Michael and I had a weeks holiday this week. Nothing special, just using up annual leave. We have done lots of fun stuff though from adventure golf on 'Pirate Island' to taking a night out and going down to see my brother in Portsmouth where he is at university. We took him out for lunch and got a nosey around his new house which was nice. Our hotel we stayed in was very funky and we had a really chilled out and fun evening. Will defo do it again! Sadly my bad ankle couldn't take much walking so we couldn't stay any longer on Friday afternoon as I was worried about driving home. Thinking I might talk to the doctor about some strengthening exercises for it!!
Oh well back to work Monday. I'm really looking forward to it after such a lovely week. I feel very refreshed and ready to get back!! Hope you are all well. Until next time...happy stitching!!

Hope you are all well. I'm enjoying the nights starting to draw in a little. Autumn is my favourite time of year, the colours and slight chill in the air is so lovely!
Well after losing my stitchy bug slightly, I've found him again and am thoroughly enjoying working on the baby sampler and it is sooooo quick to stitch.
I treated myself today to a little thread jar to keep all my TUSAL oddments in. Sainsburys had Kilner jars on sale and this one made it's way home. It's already filling with prettiness!
Right, better get to bed. Am up early this week for work but I don't mind as Michael and I have a quiet week off work next week! Stitchy heaven here I come!!
Until next time...happy stitching!

Hope you all had a lovely evening! My hubby and I treated ourselves to a Chinese and a bottle of wine last night for the first time in a while and it was lush! Didn't get much stitching done I'm afraid so I'm going to show you where I'm currently up to with one of the baby samplers I'm working on.
Hope you all had a great FNwF, I'll be popping over to see how you got on!
Until next time....Happy stitching!

I know I told you I am working in an emergency night shelter as part of my Uni course. I love it just so so much, really feel like I know what I am doing now and even have some clients to keywork myself. It's all so positive and I am going to struggle leaving to go back to Uni next year for sure. Hopefully they will love me enough to offer me a job when I leave uni....here's hoping anyway. One of the activities we do with the clients is performing arts and recently completed a 6 week course of becoming a choir. We ended by playing a gig at a local festival called Weyfest and it was amazing. Even I was on stage singing and I have no confidence to do things like that! Awesome to see what working with others brings out in me.
My stitching hasn't completly come to a halt. I managed to stitch up a little card for my Grandmas birthday which was today. Saw this in a recent issue of World of Cross Stitch and loved it, knew she would too. Although Grandma wants to frame it as well! I'm very flattered....

This is going to be a fairly short post. Just to say I'm still here and all is well, I'm just so so busy right now. I started my work placement at the homeless shelter and although it's only 6 hours a day, I'm coming home absolutely shattered so have had no time for stitching or catching up with blogs!
I promise I'm still trying to keep up but I have to admit, I've been in bed by 7:30pm every night, asleep by 9 at the latest! Not used to all this regular work haha. I've started to settle in now I've been there a few weeks and got a bit of stitching done last night. Will post a pic a bit later on.
Hope you are all well and will catch up soon, promise! Until then...happy stitching!
