Last week was a bit slow as i had a tone of homework to hand in so i didn't get much stitching, reading or sewing done! But i did get my coursework results which have put me in a brill mood that with last a least a week as i got two B's yeahy!.

However i did manage to get some stitching done on the christmas angel's not much but some... ... i only have a little left to do then i can start something new as im only allowed to have three cross stitches going at once (new rule i set for my self!) Have a nice week!!!! P.S. thank you all for your kind comments and for visting my blog!


I had a great time in london hanging out with my family, i only problem was that i forgot to take my camera so i could take any pic's which is really sad because i got to go to the natural history museum and i saw the dimond that Albert had recut for Queen Victoria and the arora dimond collection that glows in the dark. We also went to the Victoria and Albert museum, there was alot that i would risk going to prison

I did make some progress on the stitching im doing at the minute, the unicorn is comming along nicely and the baby bee's, well thats making slow progress.
These two are really lovely pattern's but they really do give you a head ache!


OK I've been tagged by Laura so its my turn to do this:

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.

2. Post THE RULES on your blog.

3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.

4. Tag 7 people and link to them.

5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Seven random facts about me:

1.I always put things off until the last possible moment (this includes finishing coursework).

2.I hate clothes shopping with a passion.

3.I love colours and patterns but will only wear black, purple or brown.

4.I leave college in seven weeks and i have no idea what I'm going to do next.

5.I have a phobia of having my hair cut as I'm afraid that they will do it wrong and I'll have to have it all cut off (silly but true).

6.I have never seen any rocky or Rambo films which is considered a crime among my friends.

7.I'm afraid of the penguin in Wallace and Gromit (you know the one that pretends to be a rooster with the rubber glove, its just plain…

Back In Two

A freind at colege drew some cartoon characters for me a few weeks ago, which started off an idea in my head(these are sometimes lethal lol). i like these drawing so much that i have decided to try and embroid them. The first one she drew was prince charming (who i must say looks a little too full of himself lol) This one i am doing in grey with sparkly blue eyes and gold crown to see how he looks in stitches. Then im going to do the damsel in destress who Steph created to go with him!

I'm off to london for two weeks tomorrow and unfortunatly i cant take my computer which means i cant post for the two weeks!. But i promise to post as soon as i get back:). hope you all have a nice two weeks! sammyjo

Best Day Ever!

Well today has to be the best day so far this year, why? you ask.There are three reasons
1) Is because of the beautiful gift i recived from sally, which i found waiting for me when i got home from college.

This is my first stitched gift from a fellow blogger and i really love it, the design is really cute and i love the colours sally used, it's prefect for my machine bobbins, threads and needles. I alos recived some hand dyed floss. Thank you so much sally it is now sitting next to my sewing machine holding all my little bits and bobs!2) Also when i came home i found three bags of new clothes from my mummy and new shoes all for my trip to london next week!3)the wether was quite nice today after weeks a bad weather!lolsammyjo
