Update + Giveaway + Hermit weekend

Hello readers

I have spent yesterday and this evening finishing the stitching and beading on a biscobud so this evening I could start putting it together.

I love the colours in this piece.  Most of the colour should have been Gold Metallic thread but I changed to green with read beads. There is also a lovely red tassel in the center of the beads on the larger square.

Really have enjoyed stitching this design

Before putting the biscobud together and tassel on

This weekend I am childless, well my 2 big adult children will be about but they are under strict instructions to look after themselves lol!  Me .... well I am having a weekend of stitching and nothing else!  Pizza will be ordered in and thats about the height of cooking for the weekend!!!

Over the next day or go I will be doing a giveaway on my blog.  The anniversary of my blog is here in a few days and it will 2 years of blogging and chatting so this is something worth shouting about (I hope!!).

As a thank you to all my readers I thought a giveaway would nice so please spread the word and watch over the next few days for the posting.

Well I am off to bed, early start in the morning then from 2pm I will be in my stitching corner and I shall not be moved until Sunday Evening .... ooooooo bliss!

Night all

Lots of love and hugs
