You make me smile

I'm very flattered that Cheryl and Deb have included me in their lists of people who make them smile. I think I needed to read that this morning after a weekend with my parents - they can be hard work sometimes!

In return, I've to make a list of those who make me smile. Some of these people are friends, some do some really awesome, inspirational stitching, some are thought-provoking, and others just make me smile, or laugh out loud!

1. Cheryl at Clydeside Stitching

2. Deb at Lavender Rose Ramblings

3. Su at Contemplating my needle and thread

4. Jennifer Aikman-Smith at Dragon Musings

5. Carol at Garden of Stitches

6. Barbara at Mainely Stitching

7. Helen (Lena-Lou) at Homespun Hearts

8. Anita at Anita's Stitching

9. Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits

10. Monkee Maker

I've been doing quite well with my stitching over the last week, but no photos yet. I made a good start to Donna's RR and excellent progress on Starflake. I will be stitching on Starflake during my lunch hours at work and it could even be finished by the end of the week. Except that I've just discovered that I can't do much stitching without a needle - I must have lost it somewhere. So no stitching at lunchtime today!

I've also joined the Snowbirds SAL and am going to be stitching Paradigm Lost from Long Dog Samplers. I'm going to take my time with it and am hoping to about 1 motif a month.

I've changed the layout of my blog again too. I'm not really a black sort of person and I just got a bit fed up with it! These are much more my sort of colour now. And still the Stephanie Pui-Mun Law artwork!

Thank you so much, Lesley! You make me smile and think, and I'm devoted to you and your blog, as you know. So I appreciate the compliment you've paid me so much!
Glad to hear you're doing the SAL on Paradiagm. It's a tough one, I hear, so nice to have encouragement.
I'm thinking of tackling "The Bears" one day next year. But, my Chatelaines are really calling to me and are dear to my heart. Thanks again, and keep well.
