A little update

I thought I would give you a little update, I have been stitching a bit more on my Amaryllis

I thought I had finished the dress but I still had a bit at the botom and a bit by the wing and I started one of the wings

I also wanted to show you my new snowman floss fob/thingy, sorry I cannot remember what they are called at the moment.  LOL

He was a keyring and in the sale at Tesco,  I took off the keyring bit and added one of those book rings.  I just wish I had got more of them, they had lots of different characters.  He is cute and makes me smile I love snowmen

 Thanks to Laura   http://kingdomofcrossesqueenofflosses.blogspot.co.uk/ 
Jo http://www.boosmummy.com/    and   Milly  http://thegentlestitcher.blogspot.co.uk/
I have won the Liebster Blog award.


There are conditions attached to this award, so here is the text I copied from Laura's blog.
Liebster is a German word meaning favourite, dearest or beloved.
The Liebster Blog Award is awarded by bloggers to other new bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to help spread the word about their blogs and to help them gain wider recognition.
The Liebster award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:
1. Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blog so they know about the award.
4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

Blogs I have chosen, this was so hard as I visit so many everyday.  I love looking at everyone's beautiful stitching.

Not a lot of stitching

I hand has been playing up a bit so not been stitching as much as I would have likes but I did manage some and I also made a few paper crafting cards.

I love this card and though it's not stitching I thought I would show you.

Back to stitching

Here is an update of my Nora Corbett Amaryllis pixie

Just her wings, shoulders and head to do also the beads.

Next is another Mill Hill bead kit

sorry it is blurry I did try and take it a few times and this was the best one.
