Blog Award!

I've been honoured with my first blog award! It's very exciting and I'm very grateful to Thea (Gizzimomo) at Gizzimomo's Stitchy Place for the nomination! THANK YOU!
Liebster is a German word meaning favourite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster Blog Award is awarded by bloggers to other new bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to help spread the word about their blogs and to help them gain wider recognition.

The Liebster award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting.
1. Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blog so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

Here are the five people and blogs that I've chosen to share this award with.....

1. Rachel at TimRachel's Blog is a fellow HAED Admin over at the HAED BB, and today just happens to be her Birthday!  (HB Rachel!)

2. Scotty at Diary of a Manbroider who's another HAED stitcher.  I know he has a few more than 200 followers but you must check him out, fantastic stitching!

3. Theresa at October Lace's Stitching Notes. Yep, another HAED stitcher.  She will be starting the amazing  Sistine Chapel on April 1st.  I can't wait to see her progress!

4.Vani at My Stitch Diary, another HAED stitcher, and a lovely lady.

5.  Sara at My Cross Stitch Corner HAED Stitcher, board member.  Check her out.

And here are five things you may not know about me......

3. I LOVE spinach.

Goblin Tree Update

I wanted to have a page finish before I posted, but it's taking a while.  So here's the latest update on GT.  I have touched the bottom of page 15, even if it's only one stitch way down there at the bottom....
I'm continuing work on it this week.
Happy stitching to you all!

Page 14 Complete

Pay no attention to the wrinkles.  I was trying to get a pic in sunlight, and I couldn't flatten it out that well.  Since I finished page 14, I figured it was time to take it off the rods and get a full pic.  You can see I've started page 15.  Pages 15 and 16 are the last full pages to be stitched, after that there are only 4 half pages to go.  If I can concentrate on this, I may be able to finish it this year!
