A surprise in the post

Welcome my friends.
Stop for a short visit with me.
Today is Waitangi Day or New Zealand day.
For most of us it is a holiday.
On Monday I found lovely mail in my mail box.
Illene from retdairyqueen.blogspot had a giveaway. I wrote my comment .
I won one of the two giveaways.
`Too Pooped`.
Thankyou Illene for your giveaway I will be stitching this soon.

This little kit came with 14ct Aida.
 I love stitching on 28ct  so cut a piece for me to stitch `Too Pooped` 
 from my linen in the cupboard.
I will give my YD the Adia for her stitching.

I had another project to stitch this month
 for my ` Birthday Month`but since the threads have not come yet 
 I think `Too Pooped` is taking it`s place.

Above is my progress on `Mystery Sampler`.
For some reason photos not true to colours.
Hopefully next time they will be.
I`m using `Silk n Colors` Dickens Christmas`
Needle Necessities 142 (green)
DMCs 936,834,3828,3834 and Perle12 #712.
This Sampler is designed by `Elizabeth Darrah 
donated to the `Northern North Island Region as 
a progressive sampler from 1st Nov 2012-1st April 2013.
Thankyou for visiting and I love the comment I get from my blog.
