A Hannah Milestone

After stitching my little fingers to the bone this last week, I have finally reached a milestone with Hannah. I can now proudly say that the top third is complete. My next goal is to get the part with the house completed, which is going to be a massive chore. All those bricks and mortar stitching can be very boring. I will probably per her aside until after Easter and work on some of my neglected WIPs in the meantime.

Look what arrived this week! I entered a giveaway on Mylene's blog and won this very cute pin pillow. I love the detail of the two coloured beads around the edge and the Easter/Spring themed chicks. Thank you so much Mylene, I really love the pillow and already have it on display ready for Easter.

Thank you for all the great comments and visits to my blog I really do appreciate it. As to my health, I am not feeling too bad, just very tired and I get worn out very easily. I spend quite a bit of time sitting and stitching these days and the house work gets done at whatever pace I can. I only have eight weeks to go now and I tell you I can't wait for it to be over. I just want a little bit of my energy back!

Hi Suzanne,

Your Hannah is nothing short of
spectacular!!! The amount of
detail in this sampler with all
sorts of animals, birds and
plants plus that busy border
makes it a challenge to stitch
at times I bet. And that house
with it's 2000 or so bricks ...
Yikes! I wish I could see it
in person and really appreciate
the work that you've put into
this. What a family treasure
it will be when it's done.

What a sweet little pillow
Mylene has sent you. The
beading really sets the
design off nicely and those
chicks are just so cute.
Mylene is such a talented
stitcher and finisher isn't

Hope you are continuing to
take things easy Suzanne.
It's good to hear that you
are feeling well and doing
household chores a bit at a
time. It's how I do my
housework ... and I'm not
even pregnant. Lol!
