Blogaversary Number Three!
Happy 3rd Blogaversary to me!
I'm about 3 and half in this picture, but my parents were really bad at writing on the backs of the photos so there are quite a few where I'm not sure if I'm three or four. This tree was my "treehouse" when I was three, my sister and I used to have tea parties underneath it. The pinafore I am wearing had the story of Little Red Riding Hood told in pictures, each panel had a different picture. I don't know if you bought them like that or if they came as a kit that you made up.
Also, Happy Birthday to Calamity Jr and Susan Yellow Flower Meadow too.
Some Blogaversary stats:

Last year I was mainly stitching on Round Robins and monthly challenges. The same is true for this year! I have had a lot less finishes this year though. This is deliberate because I am trying to focus on some of my bigger pieces rather than so many smalls as in the previous two years.
So what did I do on Sunday? That's right, I stitched a totally random small project which doesn't fit in with any challenges, themes or targets at all. So the only way to justify stitching it is to make it the prize for the blogaversary! Sneaky, huh?
Here is the finished stitching:
Stitched on 19 count Ariosa Antique Rose
using Jodyri Threads ChaChaCha and DMC B5200
This is a freebie available on The Little Stitcher's FB page to promote her new Alice in Wonderland chart which is now on my wishlist!!
I can't decide how to finish this small piece, it's only 70 stitches by 35 stitches. So this is where the competition comes in -
What weird and wonderful way should I finish my stitching?
The winner will get the weird and wonderful finished piece!! The winner will be chosen by me based on how much I love the idea and how feasible it is. I will also show the suggestions to the Large Boy first and see which ones he likes (he will unbiased as he doesn't know who anyone is!). In fact I will probably write them down as they come in without anyone's name on so I forget who said what.
Back on track on Monday I stitched Block 10 of the Primitive Hare Spooky Countdown:
Finally, the School Easter Holidays started this week so we must be approaching Easter! Which means, not long left to sign up for the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop. Click on the bunny to the right for more details.
