Marley is finished, Blog changes and a Winner!

Good grief, I am losing the will to do anything to do with I.T.  I have been on this computer for over four hours tidying and organising my blog and updating my facebook page.  I like the blog now; all the pages are nicely sorted and things are easy to find. And I prefer the different charts to be in their different homes; Holmsey is a peace loving hare, and those maids do like to chat and giggle!

 I didn't do too well on the fb page, managing to lose most of my posts and photos.  Multitasking at it's worse.  Still, it is all done now!

And I have finishes to show you!  Yipee!

Firstly, I managed to finally get a decent photo of 'Be Mine'.

And I drew the winner of this free chart on was.....(drumroll..., bit more drumroll..) Emma/Itsy.

Please email me Emma ( so I can send Holmsey on his way!

And Marley is finished; .  I really, really enjoyed stitching this design!  I stitched it in DMC 5200, and Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads Pale Silver Gray, Seafoam White, 1795 Aged Pewter and 1795 Ocean Waves but have also listed the equivelent DMC threads.

What do you think?

There will be more Dickens charts to come..and you can see why if you read the blurb on the Dickens charts for sale page.

It is quite nerve wracking putting charts 'out there' as it were..they are all made with a little bit of me in them and I am still only doing what I want to stitch or when the designs flow, what I would like to stitch if I had time. has to be for fun!

Anyway: time to get off this darned computer and thing about what is next!  

If you are in one of the areas affected by serious weather alerts, please keep safe: stay in and stay warm.  There seems to be so many areas affected: flooding to the right of me and freezing and snow to the left!.  Please take care and try to have a good week!
