I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

The IHSW that was...


Here we are again at the end of another IHSW and what do I have to show for it... Nothing!!

Now, that's not to say that I didn't stitch over the weekend because I did.. I just can't show you! I am madly stitching my piece for the latest MS Lovers Blog exchange and I am almost done. I should be done but my stitching time has been eroded over the last week or so by couch potato syndrome!!!

Actually, that's not entirely true... Most of Friday & Saturday was spent trying to get the item that I will be using to mount my stitching in "finished"... Do you ever have those days when what's in your head just won't come to fruition in real life. Well, that was me over the weekend... Sunday saw me try something else with the finish and I think it might work this time. I still need to finish it off on Friday... And then I can mount the stitching and hopefully it will be in the mail on Monday!!

So stay tuned... This one is off to Canada - I am hoping that it will be a lot quicker in it's travel time than the last one that went to Russia!!

Ok.. So that was my weekend... No stitching pics to share with you this time, but how about I tell you about another giveaway that I have found instead..

Kaye (Kitten Stitching) is having a giveaway. Kaye has put together some lovely items to celebrate 300+ followers, 300 posts and 2 years of blogging.

Kaye's Giveaway closes 2 July 2013

So why not pop on over to Kaye's blog, say hello and become a follower if you're not already one... And then enter the giveaway :) Kaye's giveaway closes on 2 July 2013. While you're over that way, Kaye also has a travelling pattern that is looking for it's new destination! You had better be quick with this one though... Time might be running out!!

Now while I don't have a photo of my latest stitching to show you... How about a photo of Mitzi fresh from the bath!

Isn't she so pretty?

If you want to sign up next month for the IHSW, or if you want to go a visit some other great blogs and see what others have been stitching over the IHSW, pop over to Joyce's blog and say hello.

Good luck with all the giveaways out there! See you next time, til then happy stitching!

Yes, I know *exactly* what you mean - I've been having one of those days myself :) I'm trying to do a little gift stitching and I just can't seem to translate my vision right. Mitzi is so cute, her paws look so fluffy in that photo!
