Liebster blog award and TUSAL

Finally my post for the Liebster Blog Award I received from 4 nice ladies (Milly, Kate, Heli and Emma).

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

1. Choose five up- and- coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.
2. Show your thanks to the Blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. 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 five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

Since every blogger I can think that has less than 200 followers already received this I'm not passing it on. By the way, every blog that I follow is Liebster for me!

As for the five random facts about myself here they are:
1 - I'm the messiest girl you'll ever know! My room can always be described as utter chaos! I should post a pic of it right now, but believe me you'll be scared!

2 - I'm always late! When boyfriend comes to pick me up to go out he waits patiently for at least 10 minutes every time! (I know he's an angel for being so patient).

3-I have a thing for nail polish! Even though I already have something like 20, I keep buying new ones, just yesterday I bought 2 more! Do you like the colours I've chosen?

4-I'm in love with Sweet Williams, here there's the first one starting to bloom in my garden

5-Even though I look better with my hair short I don't like short hair while I love long ones: do you think they're long enough?

(note how this pic has been cut so that none of the messy room around me can be seen!)

In the end a pic of my ORT jar: I didn't stitch a lot lately, but the proof that I've stitch a little are all the blue orts coming from Paradigm Lost.

I didn't blog for theme-a-licious on the 15th because that day I actually started to stitch on PL so there wasn't a lot of progress yet! I'm hoping to manage to finish page 3, even though I'm not hermitting this month, other things came in the way!

I'm off to tidy my room now! I'll be back with a flowery post!

All in one

Sorry for this very long absence, I promise I won't disappear again for a whole month!
Lately I've got very few free time, this is why I'm far behind in reading and commenting on you blogs and this is why I've been away from the blog, I've missed the IHSW the Wipocalypse the TUSAL! I made small progress on just a couple of wips but all the same I'm here with a "all-in-one post".

Before showing my little progres, I want to say a BIG WELCOME to my brand new followers, and an even BIGGER THANK YOU to milly (currently unable to locate your blog sorry!), Kate, Heli and Emma's Stitches for giving me the Liebster Blog Award! Thank you so much, I'll post about it next time.

I've been not quite good at Theme-a-licious because I've worked on just 5 different projects this month: JGF, Christmas Rules, HOAN, a crochet cuschion cover and 2 amigurumi.

As for the Wipocalypse, my progress on JGF can be seen in my last post, not a single bead stitched since.

Christmas Rules looks like this, header almost done:

And HOAN like this, house almost done:

As for the TUSAL, I've taken a pic of my ort jar but since I've stitched just a little you can't see a difference between this and last month pic:

As for the April Theme-a-licious: Amazon April: work on you biggest project, I'm taking JGF down from the scroll frames and up goes Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Sampler:

I've started it back in 2008 and so far I've just stitched page 1, 2 and almost all page 3. It's stitched on a 18ct Aida, which means the stitches are quite small and I easily get tired with it!

As for the crochet projects, the cushion cover is inspired by this one by lovely Lucy:

Once finished this will go straight over at boyfriend to lay on my beloved sofa blanket, she's been finished for some months now and I didn't manage her Ta-dah moment yet! Coming soon...

While for the amigurumi, you can see them finished here, because mine are still a lot of stuffed crochet pieces to be assembled all together! They'll be a gift for two friends of mine who have recently graduated.

That's all for now, I promise I'll be back soon!

Happy Easter everybody!!!!
