Lovely surprise post and a couple of little finishes

Thank you for all your lovely coments over the last few weeks. Sorry if I've not replied. My ME has reared it's ugly head and sometimes I just forget to.

I had a lovely surprise in the post a few weeks ago. I won a prize on Christine's blog. She is a brilliant upcycler and a whizz with the sewing machine so she sent me this cute cat, some pretty braid and a wooden stitching blank.

I've had a couple of finishes too. I did the little Royal Guard cover kit from an old Cross Stitcher.

I also completed the February Needlecraft Haven challenge which was a freebie stitch from here.
I loved finishing this one off. Christine chooses some fab designs. It's stitched on some of Steph's hand dyed evenweave.

March is a bit bigger but It's a sweet one. I'm hoping to have time to do it. Other than on my tree I don't have any stitched pieces for Christmas so it'll be nice to frame and hang this one up.

I've also stitched this biscornu from a chart I found on Pinterest. I've tried to find it on the link but the page seems to have 20 other designs but not the one I used. I stitched it in one of my favourite Anchor vari threads. It was a rather belated present for Steph's birthday. Happy Birthday Steph!!

March has turned itno a really busy stitching month, The lovely Steph at Show and Tell (and a different Steph from above!) and I are doing a 4 seasons swap this year with the spring one being echanged at the end of the month. I've already stitched one cute little thing and I have the everything ready for the next stitch. I've lots of ideas for this one so I just need lots of time and a fully co operative stitchy bug. I also have my Mum's birthday and of course Mothering Sunday to stitch for too. I need to make a wedding present for the beginning of April and fit in the NH SAL too. EEK!

Best I get on then! Thanks for stopping by xx
