EDITED: Sorry about the pictures! I hope they're showing up alright now :)
What a fortnight it's been! We're wrapping up all the schoolwork before the Easter holidays so I've been a very busy bee typing up all my coursework and notes, making revision packs and extra reading etc. etc. Then last week, I was struck down by one of those awful bugs that cause horrible sickness. My mum thought it might be food poisoning, but we couldn't pin down what I'd eaten to make me so sick. I was out for four days; I couldn't even stitch! So between schoolwork and sickness, I haven't been able to do as much stitching as I would like to. My Nature's Beauty is coming along rather well though . . .
I can't wait to have this framed and on my wall! In other news, I have been putting together my very first giveaway. I will warn you now, it is not by any stretch of the imagination a very large giveaway. It's just a neat little package ready to gift someone who takes enjoyment from my blog :) I'm not very confident in my finishing techniques yet, but I am making something stitched for the winner - a bookmark! I won't tell you what it is, just give you a sneaky peak. I can tell you it's a design from a British based company.
My giveaway will be announced on Saturday, so make sure you look out for it :) We've got a week to go before we break up for the holidays. I know I'm going bowling and watching the royal wedding (of course) but other than that, it looks like I've got a lot of revision in front of me. At least stitching will provide some light relief :)
Have a wonderful week,
