Liebster Award & Adventure Time Finish

Hi! First I am so happy to announce that I received a Liebster Award by the lovely Ali from Faerie! Thank you so much Ali, it so sweet of you and it feels so nice to receive one!

Liebster is a German word, meaning favorite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new bloggers create new connections. The award comes with four conditions that 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 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

5 Blogs I give the award to:
1- Sewingseed :  A super lovely & talented cross stitch designer who has a shop on Etsy.  I have made a fox from her design which came out beautiful.
2- Kathy's Stitching Blog :  Beautiful stitching!  Her fairies are gorgeous and full of sparkle!!! She inspires me to stitch more!
 3- Melissa's Stitching Room :    I love how she stitches the faces of the beautiful fairies & mermaids she makes!  Gorgeous blog!!!
4- MrsDibble Cross Stitching & Other Threads : She does it all!  Beautiful cross stitch and gorgeous quilts!!
5- My Huuuge HAED Project :  She is stitching a beautiful cross stitch, and also draws gorgeous pics of animals!

Thank you to the Nominator:
A big thank you to Ali who nominated me for this lovely award!  Her blog, Faerie, is full of super beautiful cross stitching, mainly from Heaven and Earth designs.  ^_^

5 random facts:
1. I adore Japanese anime & everything kawaii!
2. I love reading.  If I'm not stitching, I have my nose in a book.  I especially love teen novels.
3- My favorite food is spaghetti with tomato sauce.  I can eat it every day, even for breakfast! Yum!!
4-  If I see something fluffy (like a kitty or a stuffed animal) I just HAVE to touch it!! It becomes a physical need!
5- I have no sense of direction.  I can get lost in my own backyard.  I get confused and frustrated with maps.  It's just hopeless!

And now for Adventure Time!  It didn't take me all this time to finish it.  First, my arm/shoulder pain came back.  My doctor wanted me to try going back to work to see if I had healed well.  I hadn't!  All my pain and numbness came back, so I could stitch for a while.  Then I started stitching a tiny bit every other day.  But then, just as I was almost finished, I ran out of the orangey-yellow color I was using for Jake.  My mom had some, but the lot is different.  You can see a bit on his hand that the color differs a bit.  Here it is:

So now I need to frame it.  I think it looks really cute!

  1. congratulations on your Liebster award! I think you deserve it. The design is lovely. Don't worry about the orange: who would be able to tell if you keep it a secret? Besides: think of it as kind of overdyed effect:-)
