IHSW weekend and other things.

Firstly its a wet weekend here... good for stitching by the fire, and what do I plan to stitch.?
Brought this out the other day, started quite a while ago and intended for the Doll's house, hopefully there will be some progress to show by the end of the weekend.
I am also working on a piece of white work and hope to get a few more stitches on it and a piece for a secret friend. Will report my progress next week.
Now other things to share.... welcome to Emma you have brought my followers up to the magic number of 150, there is a small gift here that has been waiting for that number to come up, so Emma please email me with your postal address and it will be on the way. Magic number ? it is twice my age  I guess thats a good enough reason.
Next give-a-way is to the person who has left the most comments on my blog in the past year November - to November ( one birthday to the next).... This is a bit like playing the children's game pass the parcel!
Well that parcel goes to Annette of California Stitcher Thank you Annette for all your support. I should get your parcel in the mail early in the week. And yes I did count everyones comments but only one was  allowed to a posting.
 And a big thank you to everyone for all your support and messages. Answering them has not always been possible but your comments and emails have ment a lot to me specially as this past year has been such a difficult one.  I have added 6 more names to my list from those who leave comments frequently but I dont intend to share them with you who they are,  just to say sometime in the future each will receive a small piece of stitching from me and I will leave it as a surprise till then.
We bought new wheels this week! no we did not buy a new car what we bought was a wheelchair for Paul hopefully he might manage to get around the shops again. I have been spoilt over the years the grocery and food shopping had been on Paul's list of things to do. I hate shopping ( maybe except going to an embroidery shop and that only happens a couple of times a year) As the blood count drops further each time Paul has found it almost inpossible to have enough energy to walk more than a few feet so this means he will be able to get around more.
Off to stitch now..... happy stitching this weekend everybody
