So what I have achieved? Um, not much on the big projects, for sure. I am feverishly trying to get a couple of RRs completed and into the mail this month, one I am very late with and the other I will be spectacularly early!
One I am REALLY enjoying is this one..... a couple of weeks ago I was reading a post from Julie where she mentioned she had just begun Nature's Alphabet by Elizabeth's Designs. This has been in my stash for ever so I (virtually) plonked myself on Julie's sofa and informed her we would be SALing together - that's what cabin fever does to you, makes you pushy, lol! She graciously agreed and Tuesday is "our" day to stitch together. It's hard to put down, you want to keep stitching little boxes!

|...and this is where I am now.|
So what's the lovely gift, I hear you say? Well, at the beginning of the month I got a very unexpected email from the lovely Cath over in Queensland. We are two of the 600 or so participants in Grow Your Blog 2014 and had left comments on each other's blogs. I'd won her giveaway for the event! Much to my surprise the parcel arrived today and I know Cath didn't post it before the 2nd.... just over a week from Oz to US!
Look what she sent..... beginning at the beginning, lol......
A beautiful handmade stitcher's wallet with a candle wicked design on the front, with buttons, needles, thread, fabric, scissors and a tape measure! Just gorgeous and will be put to good and frequent use! Thank you so much, Cath.......... have you needed your wellies yet, lol?
There is still time to enter my giveaway here, leave a comment and don't forget to have a look at some of the other blogs taking part!
Time to get back to stitching.... RRs to finish and send off..... complete something for OPAM..... and the Smalls SAL......try not to spend any money on stash....... not a good idea to have a look at the Nashville previews, by the way.......show some progress for February's Themalicious......attempt to redeem myself with the Scarlet Letter SAL before the 20th........ stitch a class sample for EGA......the NH monthly challenge........ and pack.......more on that next time!
