Pirates and PIF

Well it's been a bit of crazy day for me today. Weird stuff at the office... so this is a nice break to check-in and update here.
I did have some fantastic news today... and that is that I was picked by Meari on her PIF (Pay it forward) from her blog!

So she sends me a treat of 5 stitching related items. :D
Now it's my turn to give it to three other people!

The rules are as follows:

1. Send no less than 5 stitching related items per person within the next 365 days.
2. Items can be DMC, other threads, stitching needles, straight pins, buttons, scissors, ribbons, etc. - a combination of items such as 3 threads, 1 pack of straight pins and 1 pack of stitching needles or just 5 threads.
3. The items must be new and not used. (Send things you'd be happy to receive.)
4. If you win, you must be willing to post this PIF on your blog and do the same for at least 2 people.

Alright... so I'm gonna be drawing for three people to do this for. So please comment if you want to be a part of this. But remember you have to be willing to reciprocate on your blog! ;)

I have an update for you of Sue Hillis Design "Love Pirate".
I have been backstitching as I go cause I find it not as much fun as cross stitching. So I hate leaving it to the end.
(don't mind the crookedness of this photo or the lack of ironing, lol). Here is the update:

I will have updates of dragons, maybe ducky and snowman tomorrow or Wednesday. Just gotta get some pics taken!
Thanks for visiting and your comments!

Nice update on your pirates piece. It looks great.

Congrats on winning the PIF. I hope you enjoy what I send. :)

Lastly, thanks for your help last week.

I love seeing the pirate peices you are stitching. I keep wanting to work on them myself. (I have the Santa one and it will get done before next Christmas!)

I'd love to be part of the PIF. I think it sounds like a great idea.

I love your Sue Hillis, she is one of my favourite designers.

I would love to be part of your PIF, I didnt realise Meari was doing one until it was too late and have always wanted to be part of one, so please add me to your draw. Thank you so much.
