The next JN is finished

Hummingbead Heaven
by Just Nan

I really enjoyed stitching this one, and it never made it into any progress pics! I did start it the Sunday after I finished 4 Wishes, but then stitched on it a couple of nights too. Then Sunday and Monday, and just added the beads last night. I now have to decide on the next JN, looking forward to Sunday.

During my recent blogging break, I was awarded these wonderful awards.

So a big thank you to Belinda for the Sunshine award, it's nice to see the sunshine.

To accept this award I have to pass the award on to another 12 bloggers, and this is where I have a problem, I just read far too many blogs, and I'm so far behind with my reading, and whilst trying to do a bit of blog hopping I see that this has done the rounds and lots of people already have it. So I'm going to pass, I hope you all don't mind.

And another - thank you to Sally, and Patti for this one.

Now this one I need to pass on to 7 or 10 bloggers - as it says on their blogs, but once again I'm going to pass - for the same reason as in the Sunshine award.
For this award I also need to post 7 or 10 things about myself. (Sally says 10, Patti says 7). Maybe I'll go for an inbetween number. These should be things you might not know about me.

1. When I was at school one of my nicknames was 'gingernut' - I was a redhead, will find an old photo one day to scan and post here.

2. I need to lose weight.

3. I left school at 16 years (my mum and dad could not afford to keep me).

5. I went to night classes for 10 years after that.

4. It took me 4 attempts to pass my driving test, and the pass was obtained following a drink in the pub! - Eh - it was a long time ago, nowadays I won't even have a sip if I am driving.

5. I've only ever lived in 5 houses.

6. I'm always late, but was actually early for my wedding and we had to drive around to kill time.

7. I have too much stash (but maybe you knew that?)

8. My first real hobby was crochet, when I was about 12, and I used to make those granny square waistcoats to order, and made poncho's (early 70's). Although I did lots of other crafts before that. When you're 12 you just want some money, people bought the wool, and I crocheted. I think I used to get about 50p a garment - I was never going to get rich! LOL

4 Wishes

Happy Easter everyone, hope everyone has found some stitching time. I love having the lighter nights for stitching after work, although I've not managed to stitch before it's got dark yet!

For those who have been awaiting 4 Wishes, I apologise that it took me so long to get a picture posted, but here it is. It's very difficult to get a picture of such a long piece.
