No Surprise here and a first......

It feels as if I've been gone a while . I hope everyone is well! I had an absolutely fabulous time in Disneyland!!!!!
But since getting back I feel just plain worn out. I got cancelled from work on saturday and feel as if I'm fighting a cold so I've been laying low and just stitching.....with the result being I have lots of pics! The first one is of my nieces completed yes completed heart...her very first finish.....
She changed the color on the flower petals to help it show up better and I think it's just beautiful! She is onto her next project already!

Now here is a SAL I'm doing with Margaret ( but she may have finished hers already) and Brenda (no blog) ...It's Scary Scrapps



Next is my Nora's Alphabet.... a bit slow going but coming along!


Take a look at salem remembered that I'm doing with Cheryl (no blog) from SP wednesdays...
I stitched most recently on this while at my weekly bowling league and managed to stitch a lot! It even helped my score.....we won the league championships!!!!!!


I had another new start ...I can here you all muttering oh really...no surprise here.....I couldn't resist really I couldn't! A friend of mine Wendy (no blog) from work and SP started her and I fell in love all over again.....so much so that I've been stitching non stop the last 2 days.......don't you just love stitchy pajama days!!!!! I certainly do! So here is Miss Valentine

Not bad for 3-4 days of work. I am even enjoying adding the Kreinik as I go...... she will soon have a face! I just adore her feet in those ruby slippers!!!!!!!!!


And last but not least is another new start on May 1st with Martha (no blog) from SP as well I am doing this on PTPlus 32ct limited edition DaVinci with DMC 3746.....so far I am loving the effect!!!!
Oh and for those of you that haven't seen the new Nora letters here they are.....
I am in love with all 3 but will be doing the M for my niece!!!!!!
I must be going now since I can't seem to stop sneezing............I think it's time for tea and lots of tissues.....
I am grateful for quiet stitchy days......

May your needle fly through your fabric.........
