I'm a spoiled little brat !!!

Not so much brat but spoiled for sure You may have noticed I didn't blog as regularly as before. I don't why ... maybe I lost my blogging mojo or maybe the garden took my blogging time. Anyway, I'm late at showing at what I got in the mail lately !!!

I won a giveaway on Shel blog! It was for a lovely popppy kit from a magazine. I was the very happy winner and look at what she sent me: a snowman chart that I already saw on some blogs and I always loved it! Of course , Shel didn't know it but I couldn't have been happier !!! Thank you Shel for the little surprise !!!


Then Pumpkin surprised with a little and inexpected gift. She read on her comments that I've never stitched with silks (I can only imagine the softness of those threads going trough the fabric !!!) Well, she decided to change that and offered me two flosses for me to try! Isn't she sweet? I secretly think she loves to play with my address (and I secretly love it to tell you the truth !!! )


Michelle was giving away some old magazine and I asked for the Cross stitch and needlework magazine: she was very nice to accept to ship here. Thank you Michelle, I really appreciate it



I also won a giveaway on a french blog. Melinette sent me a very nice, I thought I took pictures but couldn't find them so click here to see what I got. Merci Melinette !!!


I learned how to underline something as there are no shortcuts on Blogger (I thought you might be interested as well !!! ): To underline text, place a u inside <> in front of the word you want to underline and /u inside <> after the words you want to underline. These are html tags... which specify underline, you need to use html to underline text.

And last but not least, my snowman. The reindeer is not as exciting as the snowman so I'm having less fun stitching browns and grey but I won't give up !!!
Thanks for your lovely comments and support! I really appreciate it !!!

You're spoilt to the bones! All great gifts!! I think you're good at blogging. I do read updates from you like every 3 to 4 days and I always look forward to read them.

ooohhhh... is that VC silk hiding behind that skein of Dinky Dyes? You will get addicted to HDF silk. I love to use her silk. Really smooth and soft. Wish I can buy all her solid colour silk.

Btw, I can never get my comment over to you after the I post. They only get through after I press Post Comment twice.
