April TUSAL

Sadly my April TUSAL photo is lacking Madame Muriel, she is currently residing in Arizona with Miss Zoe, Gracie and Mr. H.



So, just the TUSAL jar, my three-pages-a-week calendar and My Lovely Sewing Tools which is the project for IHSW.  Not so much progress, that little beige hornbook on the left took ages!

I have also nearly finished CCN Cherry Hill.  I need to know - are there any other cottages the same size in this series?  I've seen the lovely monthly cottages but would like more smaller ones.  This one is only 78 x 78 stitches.

Finally, men are bringing me luck!!  First of all Lesley's son picked my name for her blogaversary giveaway, the amazing Snapdragon chart and other goodies.  Then Shebafudge's hubby picked me for her fabric giveaway (which was a lovely piece of Silkweaver fabric).  Thirdly, Heather's hubby chose me to win some earrings, I don't even think he'd seen my earring post either!  So a big Thank You to all those lovely men!  So much nicer than the old random number generator.

Nice going on the sampler!

Congratulations on all your wins, they say things come in 3s. Your sampler is very pretty. You could always do the monthly cottage series over 1 to reduce the size.

Lovely sampler and wow three wins, congrats!
Thank you for your comments on my blog, the needle roll does have instructions with a stitch suggestion for the hem, but I used 'pin' stitch which I learnt in school many many years ago!
Happy stitching
Chris xx

Wow, what a pretty sampler - how have I missed that!? I really need to improve on mu blog-peep-visit-frequency... The sampler colors are so pretty and I love everything stitch themed (go figure, LOL).

Congrats on all your wins! Sounds like you'll get a lot of goodies in the mail in the next few weeks - yay!
