So many awards!!

I have been overwhelmed by receiving 4 awards over the last couple of days.
Zetor has awarded me "Super Commenter"
And Miss376, Jodi and Redwitch have awarded me with "I love your blog"
Many thanks to one and all! I am always amazed that people enjoy my blog. I never imagined when I started this "blogging" that I would be hooked so quickly and would make many new blogging friends. I am afraid I am still going to chicken out of passing these awards on, I counted my blogroll the other day and I have over 50 favourite places to visit - how do I choose out of those. Please check out these places they are all great!
Back to stitching - I have updates of my Family Tree stitching. I felt like I hadn't progressed much with this but looking at it now I can see it is coming along quite well. The green of the tree is getting boring! so I went on to start the banner under our names that will say the word "Family". I knew when I started this it was a big project so I know from experience that stitching big projects like this always take me a long while. All progress is good progress!
This close up one looks a different colour but it was taken without the flash on.
I have also had an email today saying my Hot Cocoa chart has arrived from the USA and it'll be posted to me tomorrow - hurray I can't wait. I must put it away though for now and stick with my rota. I will slot it in at a later date!
This week I want to finish View from a Terrace and start D for Dancer. As well as continuing with Mom's sampler and Christmas stuff!!
I am giving Julie her Birthday card tomorrow so I can post a picture of that next time. I hope she likes it because I really liked the way it turned out.
Happy stitching...
