Surprise awards

What a lovely surprise to have received 2 awards over the last day or so. Especially as I am so new to Blogging!!!

Yesterday I received the Kreativ Blogger award from Heather.

Then Today I received the Brillante Weblog from Nicola.

Thank you both so much.

I was not expecting any awards for what I do as I feel it is nothing special, but I am pleased that my stitching and blogging bring other people enjoyment too.

I read the rules on both and know I am supposed to pass the awards on but I have thought and thought all day and just can't make a decision. Everyone's blog that I read is great in different ways, sometimes it's from what you create, sometimes from what you say etc.... All special in their own way. So I have to say I award them both to all the people on my Blog Roll and thank you all for your kind comments and inspiration.

Tonight I have been out for a lovely meal, hence the late blog posting! About 8 years ago I changed profession completely after a lot of stress problems and illness. I used to be a primary school teacher working first with 5 - 6 year olds and then teaching 5 - 11 year olds with learning difficulties. It is a long story as to what happened and why I finished it all but I won't bore you with it now! From the first school I taught at I only keep in touch with one person, Jan. She was my nursery nurse when I was teaching and we always got on very well. After I left teaching we lost touch a little but this year we managed to get back in touch. So tonight Stuart and I met Jan and her husband Paul for a lovely meal, then we went to visit their allotment as they are keen fruit and vegetable growers. We had a really nice night and I am glad we are in contact again.

Of course now I am tired and don't think I'll manage much stitching. But at least I can give you an update on my cup cake..... I worked on this earlier today.

At least you can see what it is now, it just needs the back stitching and the wording and it'll be done.

I have a busy weekend ahead too as we have some friends visiting on Saturday and another friend coming over on Sunday to do my hair (too many grey bits that need to be covered!!!) So I may not post again until Sunday, so happy stitching.....
