I reckon that's my quota of luck for 2009 lol! but i'll still keep trying ... now if i could just win a nice stitching lamp, that would be the business!!
Decided that as it is my birthday on Tuesday i would give myself a new start - so got my HAED Twilight Shimmer QS out and got it kitted up (well as much as i could - goodness, for a smaller design it still uses heaps of colours!) Am on a self imposed stash ban ( hubbie lost his job last year so finances are a bit tight) so will work with what i have at the moment starting on my birthday... might also through caution to the wind and start my Mirabilia Maiden of the Spring - i feel the need for lots of new starts ....
I did manage to stitch up and finish in time for Christmas a little Thomas for my wee boy Joe as he had been asking for it for months - he was very pleased with it and it now sits by his bed, along with a lot of other Thomas the Tank stuff, he's quite a fan!
Normal work as usual has been busy and then the restaurant as well has been busy at the weekends - considering it's January when everyone is supposedly poor, what happended to the recession - still can't complain, helps keep the finances ticking over.
