Ann's Doodles

I have to share with you this amazing artist Ann Marie Irvine, I just love her doodles they are so colourful even when most of it is done in black. Take a look at her website I have just purchased some cards with her artwork printed on that I am going to frame and put up. One day I will own a original of hers.

Just seen that it is my Blogoversary in 8 days, I know I haven't posted as much as I used to but I would like to host a giveaway. It will be from my stash. When I have sorted through I will post a photo. Anyone can enter, no rules, no jumping through hoops, but a share is kind, but not essential!
I have had this blog since 2009, but I did have one before when I was known as Raelou, Anyone here remember that?

LOL Anyway Comment if you would like to enter the draw!

Thank you xxxxx

May update

I have been stitching on Winter, I am enjoying this again.
Also have a little done on a new start.
But I need to get cracking with an exchange piece, can't share picture yet.
But here is as meek at the threads
I am busy at the moment having a new ceiling put in, and decorated, they are painting today. So it will hopefully be the last day of me being forced to stay in!

I am thinking of selling some stash soon, as I think at the rate I am going I won't finish my UFO's let alone any new stash!!

New Start

Spent the first part of today at Twycross Zoo with the kids, now they are at their Dad's and so I have decided to stitch but a small design nothing too taxing.

I hate it when kits come like this and you have to and sort similar colours out!

This is my little bit of progress!

April sun

What another lovely sunny day, May get some stitching done.
At the weekend I went to the Dalby Crafters monthly meet up, I haven't been since October and after a phone call with my friend Wendy, It was decided it was about time we returned. Since we last went they had changed venue, from the scout hut to the village hall, It is a bit smaller(The doors are tiny) but lots of bright natural light. It was a lovely day, I got lots done.

I did a design by Paper Panda
I also started a design by RowanDean I bought at Olympia Knitting and Stitching show.
It is called Echinacea "Paradiso"
I have also stitched on Winter Sampler By InkCircles, I will share a photo next time.
Thank you for stopping by
