I just got Tagged

This is my first ever ‘tagging’. Tannia tagged me and I have to tell you eight things about myself you might not know!

Here’s how to play:
1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves
2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules
3. At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog

So here goes

1. My husband calls me "Blue". Not because I am a red head but because I love the colour blue.

2. My birth name is Janine May Nock!!!!!

3. On the 26th July 2006 I had lapband surgery.

4. My family call me Neenie May or just Neenie.

5. Nearly 2 years ago I started to learn to play the piano.

6. I grew up in a tiny little country town in Western Australia called "Mingenew". It is an aboriginal name standing for ants and water.

7. I went to high school with Ernie dingo.

8. I wish I could sing.

I now have to tag 8 people. Can I do it later?

Just a quick drop in

to show off my progress so far with JN's Needle In a Garden. I nearly said Haystack then and I can't get the blessed song out of my head. I have finished my Biscornu stitching for my Wiehenburg - Sampler Group exchange. It is so gorgeous. I hope my exchange partner thinks so too. Anyway just wanted to show you my update.

A New Finish & Stuff

Well I had my fifth finish for the year last night. It is an alphabet heart. I think the designs is a freebie from Better, Homes and Garden and the colour chart is for the new DMC sampler threads. I stitched mine on Navy 28 count Lugana with DMC 111. I am very happy with the outcome and it goes with my colour scheme in the living room perfectly. I am guessing I will send it off to Helen, my number one gun finisher. If you are looking for a fantastic finisher contact me. Helen finishes all my stuff and they are perfect.
It has been a sad week for us here. Our dear sweet Georgie girl passed away on Thursday late afternoon. Oh she was a sweetheart. She was an Australian Tiffanie. Can't believe she died so quickly. It doesn't seem fair and we do so look after our kitties and make sure that they are kept safe. They are not allowed outside unless we have them on a leash. They have a cat run with plants and the house is large enough for them to run amok. On the other hand the day before young Harry joined the menagerie. He is a Somali. He is a dear sweet boy who joys us from Joylincar Somali cats. Carole is a sweetheart and her Somali cats are gorgeous. Harry is mine. He is happy to share himself around though but he gets to sleep with me. He cuddles up and purrs and purrs. The other thing is that I started some crocheting which is something that I have not done for god knows how many years. I still have all my crocheting stuff in a wooden box in the back shed but I am too frightened to ask Alan to find the box. Well the poor lad is worked off his feet. So I did what any self respecting ebayer does. I won everything on ebay. Yesterday the cotton arrived so I could start. It took awhile to work out what to do in regards to trebles and double trebles etc but I soon remembered. Well it did help that the book had all the descriptions in the front. LOL
Well that is it from me. I will post more frequently now the craft fair is over. Boy was that some work.
