It’s time…

Hello everyone… it's been a while!

Actually, it's been almost 3 months since I've dropped into the blog, and I must apologise for keeping some of you wondering.
I've been taking a bit of a breather to rest and to deal with a few tricky but maneagable pregnancy issues. It's been a little hard, putting most of my work and stitching goals aside for a while (it's not easy to resist the stitch!!!). But, Baby and I have had to come first, and I know my health and stitching days will return shortly…
… very shortly in fact!
I'm booked in for a c-section in just over a week, so you can imagine the anticipation and excitement we are feeling as we count down the last few days.
Little socks make for a happy washing day! : )


But first (partly due to my overwhelming urge to nest and organise), I MUST draw the winners of a pattern giveaway.
The winners were meant to be drawn in July I'm afraid, and I'm feeling pretty neglectful of you, putting the blog on hold for this long. But, better late than never!
So here goes…
Congratulations to Sarah Scott and Susan N.! You've each won a copy of my "Sweet Roses" pattern.

Hi Melissa I've only recently discovered your designs through the Hugs n Kisses website! I really love the Sweet Roses design it has a lovely vintage feel to it.
Can't wait to see what you design next.x 

Susan N said:
'Sweet Roses'…so elegant & timeless! Lovely! Thankyou for the opportunity to win Melissa.


Congratulations to Marina and Gayle Allen! You've each won a copy of my "In a Pear Tree" pattern.
Marina said:
Have just found your blog after purchasing your waterlily dreaming pattern. Can't wait to make it. I love your partridge in a pear tree stitchery and would love to enter your giveaway.
Am off to see what other loveliness you have created.
Gayle Allen said:
Hi Melissa, I have had fun doing the Waterlilly, and am now working on the roses, so would love to win In a Pear Tree, after that the birdies are next in line.
Many thanks for your fabulous talented designs, Gayle Allen
I'll email you all shortly for your addresses and send hubby down to the post office! : )
While stitching has been in short bursts, I do have 2 new patterns to release that were designed for special online events earlier in the year.
So, stay tuned as I'll tell you all about those in the next few days!
If you follow One Day In May on Facebook you've probably seen these new designs already… I tend to loitre in the land of Facebook more frequently at the moment.
Pop on over and join us for a bit of fun and if you'd like to keep up with the very latest updates.
To purchase the above patterns or any of my designs, please visit my stockists listed at the top left of the blog or check out the Hugs 'n Kisses online store.
You may just find a brand new One Day In May pattern down at the bottom of the page!

A special thank you to those who have sent well wishes and enquired after our "baby bump progress", and to all of you for your understanding and patience with my time away.
Melissa xx

    Hello Melissa, the big event must have happened by now, I just realised how many days since your “eclipse” post, which is brilliant by the way.

    I received my “happy mail” today, thank you so very much, I am eager to start “In a Pear Tree”

    Bye for now, Gayle Allen
