...mojo's back with a giveaway!

Oh yes!! Stitching mojo is back especially when i've seen this ongoing SAL through Shari's blog earlier this week. Isn't it a cutie!! So, i thought of making one into a pincushion and offer it as a giveaway to all of you my loyal followers. I am so grateful of all your visits and leaving me comments, really appreciate them all and it does help me to get on here....

((all pics can be enlarge)). Please note in your comment if you want to be included and leave an e-mail address especially to those who doesn't have a blog. This will close on March 25, so there's plenty of time to send out before Easter.

About the mortgage is still not finalize..unbelievable!! But we are glad the insurance co. who is proccessing the papers had almost covered all the cost we had, atleast he has trust in us.
So, as you can see it is a bit empty....The walls are all white, nothing hang seems i prefer it this way...i am not sure if i will hang any stithcing, maybe if we have more furnitures later. We would like some new ones but have to wait....

The added room is full of boxes yet...have to wait if we can build a new barn besides the garage, also need a big cabinet in the kitchen...

...bought some tulips almost every week, from one along the road going to town-it is cheaper, but this is not for long!

Some more pics from my visit home. My parents had given us a small space so we decided to build a simple house, which is on top of a hill! I miss the place and my family & friends. If only we can afford to go home every now and then.....

One of my Sis-in-law have lots of flowers! Don't know how she does it as she works six days a week. I think i'll ask her to bring some in our house...

I hope everyone's having a good week. Atleast here is dry after days of fog and rain...hope the sun appears soon, still windy though so it feels so cold outside!

So glad to hear that your stitching mojo is back Mylene!!! and what a lovely easter ornament!! I would be the most happy if I could be the happy winner :)

Your tulips are also beautiful, oh what I would give to be able to have so many tulips in our flat! I like very much how your new room looks (ok, I don't mean the boxes :) ), and I envy you to have the curtains up already. For me washing, cutting, sewing, ironing and putting up the curtains is the plan for this weekend.

Your photos about you&your family back home are really beautiful. And all those flowers!!!! Sure you miss them a lot, I am sure we are all like this... Hopefully you can go and visit them more in the future.

Your tulips are so pretty! I can't wait for flowers to start coming back. We got a foot of snow last week, so it doesn't look like it will be soon, however it is getting slightly warmer, so maybe Spring is on it's way!
