A couple more giveaways

I thought I would mention a couple of quilting type giveaways which are just fantastic.....

1. Head on over to 'Bitty Bits & Pieces' for a lovely Charmed Bag Giveaway.

2. Visit Jaybird Quilts and go into the draw for a giant pincushion giveaway...these are great.

Both these wonderful blogs are very popular - its not hard to see why.

Nothing like appearing out of the blue one day

Well thats what it feels like. I am a shocker at keeping up with my blogging. But once something else happens in my life, I tend not to blog so much.

My studies are going well, and I am half way through them...well more than that because tech finishes in November. I am doing well and have passed all my assessments.

I have managed to update my blog template...I felt it needed a spruce up.

I have done a bit of stitching...not as much as I would like. I have finished one thing LOL. I gave it to my DH as part of our 9th anniversary present. Here it is being modelled by my cat Misty :)

Love Ewe - Lizzie*Kate

As always I am trying to get my stitching mojo back...I think I must be a claytons stitcher (kiwis will know what I mean). Maybe my alterego that enjoys stitching has left me for a while...I am going to try and kick start myself into my hobby. I have so many beautiful patterns to stitch...that I can't wait to stitch...but also that I don't have the motivation to start. I wish there were stitching counsellors out there to help me.

I have started a couple of new things so that should help...Daisy Lane Cottage - LHN and a Christmas ornament...I will see how I get on.

Another thing I want to get back into is reading....I have tonnes of books I would like to read...just came back from a bookarama and picked up heaps of bargains. I now need another book shelf.

I know I need to organise my time more efficiently, once I do that, I will have time to stitch and read...wish me luck :)
