Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.

All of these are other stitching blogs, with a variety of lovely projects and pretty pictures!( hopefully they haven't already received it before)

1 - Midge at Midge's Crafty Corner 
2 -CathE at Cross Stitch Crazy

3 -Eyani Ryou at Stitchy Stitches
4 -Good Life to go 
5 - Veronica at Veronica's Cross Stitch 

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Thank you to Wolfthryth at Stick to My Needle 

Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

1 My favourite films is Forest Gump. I have seen it a zillion times, know it word for word but am always ready to see it again. A great film for a cry and a giggle :)
2 I got married at 20 years old! 
3 In the last two years I have lost almost 3 stone in weight and I am still going ;)
4 I love fairy tales and was reluctant to believe fairy's weren't real ( I still am lol) even when I grew up! 
5 I have never been on an aeroplane, not because of a phobia, I have just never been able to afford to go abroad  sadly :(


A massive sorry for being away for so long! But I kind of had an excuse. I really wanted to start the Around The World in 80 Stitches SAL but knew that I would only get into it if I finished the HAED. So I have spent all my time busily stitching away, but it did mean pretty much abandoning the blog and the forum :(

But here it is, after 4 YEARS!!! It is FINISHED!! *happydancehappydancehappydance*
Now I just need to find the perfect frame.
I am really pleased with the final finish but I certainly wont be in a rush to do another. I don't have much stitching time as a busy Mum so I don't want to take on something that is so time consuming for a while at least :D

I also wanted to say hello to my new followers :)
