1 year ago today...

I took the plunge in setting up a blog and wrote my first post. I've made a couple of good friends through this blog as well as others and I'm very grateful. I love reading your blogs, you all create lovely items. I've decided that I'll have a giveaway. The prize will be a £10 (or equivalent) gift voucher to a craft shop of your choice. This is open to followers of my blog, just leave a comment if you'd like to be entered. The winner will be announced in a week's time.

Can you believe I've finished one of my Cross Stitch Crazy Challenges? I certainly can't! 

E-type Jaguar completed 30/07/2013 from an issue of Cross Stitcher.

As time goes on, I highly doubt I'll finish many more if any and there are quite a few that haven't even been started. I've realised with HAEDs that a completed page, no matter how big or small will count as a completed goal. It's also the same with SALs, one part will count as a completed goal. For the 2013 challenge which in all fairness was my first time participating, I've set my goals too high and I'm keeping that in mind for the 2014 challenge. For now a goal is to start a couple more projects on the list. 

I have started Mini Curl up with a good book, I've started well and will share a photo when there's a bit more progress.

Take care.
