It's Completed...

It is over a week late but I completed the picture for Mama and gave it to her yesterday.  She loved it and will be putting it up in her lounge (the photo is not the best - I will try to get a better on next time)

Day Lily
This has inspired me to do some more stitching on Sadness of Gaia, as once again I have neglected her and I am almost half way so I should give her some attention.

My Racing season starts this Sunday (23rd March) with 3 races in 4 weeks, two half marathons and one 10k Race.  I am so excited for Sunday, my first ever Half Marathon.  As it is the week before my race I need to slow my training down, which I should give me more time for stitching.

My First Half Marathon on Sunday

This is also the largest race I have run, there are currently 2885 people paid to run, I am number 1613 - by the way number 13, is my lucky number.
This is my Bib Number 1613

I hope everyone has a great week.  Take care of yourself xx

IHSW Update and Give-away...

I haven't had access to the internet for a few days which is why my update is late.  I did manage to do some stitching of Mama's Design - I only have a week to complete it and then frame it as it is Women's Day on 8th March - time is flying this year (I think I say that every year)

Before IHSW...
After IHSW...
I am really enjoying stitching this one and can't wait to give it to Mama.

Anthea over at 'Hibiscus Stitches' is giving away the Travelling Pattern which she won from my blog - it took 3 months for it to arrive from Poland, which is crazy - I was so worried it got lost.  If you are interested in taking part in the travelling pattern, please 'click here'.

My Design of the Travelling Pattern...
My running has not been going so well this month, I have fallen twice in the past week and hurt the same knee both time (I wont show you a picture of the cuts and bruises - its not pretty) but I am determined to get back on track as my races start again next month and I really want to do well.  My target was to run 80 miles this month but so far I have only achieve 50 with another 5 for tomorrow... Must try harder next month.

Thank you to everyone for their wishes and support for Mama, she is doing OK.  If you would like donate there is a Paypal donation button on the right hand side of the page you are free to use.  Thank you once again to everyone.

February Stitch and Stash Update...

Firstly 'Thank you' to everyone for all your kind words and support.

February's Update:

Amount Spent: 0:00
New Starts from Stash: 1 New Start from Stash
WIPs or UFOs worked on: 1 Working on Sadness of Gaia
Month of Entry: February 2014

I have started a new start from Stash as a present to my Mother-in-Law as her present for Women's Day here in Poland on 8th March 2014.  It is a 'Day Lily' from Heritage Designs, I have had this in my stash for a couple of years and last year Mama decorated her living room and I think this will now fit perfectly in there.

Day Lily - Started 20th February 2014.
Will be back with my ÍSHW update on Monday.  Have a great weekend everyone.
