Well it's about time I updated this blog

I was reading the other day how blogger reuses blogs that haven't been used in a while so I decided I had better update mine.

I finished this lovely design and sent it off to Liz in 
Australia and she sent me the most beautifully packaged gift 
 I won the most beautiful bag from Ilke Cochrane of Mabel Figworthy's Fancies

 I won the bag in a blog hop and promised I would blog about it sorry it's taken me so long.  
I received some lovely goodies all with a snow theme from Colleen in Elko Nevada 
I finished BBD Rewards of Merit Small Token and this was sent off in a Valentine exchange I received this one back from Lynda
I visited Geneva and found a wonderful cafe called The Laughing Teapot about two doors away from a beautiful if very expensive LNS
 I finished my Prayer Mat I started the Ramadan last year and I started a new one this year 
I finished a Jardin Prive called Welcome to London 
I started another Jardin Prive chart called Sampler aux Bouquet which   is really 3 charts . I started on chart number 3 as I prefer to stitch from right to left no idea why but for me that's easiest. 
I am sure I have forgotten to add in all my finishes but I think that's enough for now 
Will try to update more often
Sorry for the upside down pictures I have tried to edit some things but blogger is not cooperating 
It's my own fault I have forgotten how to edit. 


  1. How lovely to see you back, Denise! Gorgeous stitching!

    Wendy :o)

  3. Wow, lots of lovely things!

  4. P.S. I didn't know that Blogger recycles blogs. Thanks for the heads up.

  5. lovely stitching ... really like the sampler aux bouquet and reallllly nice goodies you got too and just adore the name "Laughing teapot " :) love mouse xxxxxx

  6. Lots of gorgeous stitching there. I've recently visited a LNS in Montreux, Switzerland and although the store was packed wth lots of delicious things the prices just couldn't tempt me.

  7. Oh my...there is a lot of lovely stitching there!! I like to stitch from bottom to top and right to left myself...It's nice to meet another "unconventional" person!

  8. Great to see you back, Denise and thanks for visiting my blog. Your finishes, new starts and exchange pieces are all gorgeous! But why would someone want to hijack someone else's blog when it is so easy to start your own? A horrible thought that someone might take over a piece of your life!

  9. You have been a very busy lady. What lovely things you have made. Love your blog. :)

  10. Beautiful work! I am bad about updating my blog, too.


  11. Beautiful work! Sometimes life gets in the way and blogging takes a back seat so you can stitch.
