F and S Winter Round Received

These lovely squares arrived from Sharon V. on friday. She's my partner for the F & S winter round. She also included in the package a strawberry that she made. This is my 1st ever strawberry and I was very excited to receive both the squares and the strawberry. Thank you so much, Sharon. You sure brightened my day. I'm still stitching on Sharon's sqaures, but am hopeful they'll be done in the near future. Till next time,

Updated Blog's Look and PIF

I know, I know. It's not even February, yet and I've already put out the hearts, but I couldn't resist. I haven't been stitching too much this week. Busy with work, plus, I finally finished the Twilight series....borrowed them from my daughter after she and I saw the movie. The books were so much more detailed.

Tomorrow's the SAT over at Let's Stitch. I haven't figured out what I'm gonna work on, yet, but I will definitely be stitching all evening. I' really looking forward to the end of the work week and some serious stitching time for me:) I still have a F & S square I need to stitch...haven't picked out the chart, yet. Maybe, I'll do that this evening, so I'm ready to go come 6pm tomorrow.

Well, I'm trying this again.

I was one of the lucky ones to be picked for Karen D.'s PIF. I am offering a PIF here at my blog, like I said I would do. So, here are the rules: * If you would like to receive a stitchy gift made by me within 365 days please leave a comment on this post to say that you are interested, the first 2 names I draw on Saturday, February 14th....[in honor of my blog update].(Presuming I get more than 2 people interested that is) will be my PIF members* In return you post the same offer on your own blog. And the chain goes on... :) So easy and so fun. So, please leave a comment and I'll get back to the winners after Valentine's Day.

Well, I'm off to dig through my stash. Till next time....

Happy Dance!

I managed to complete Just Nan's Ice Garden friday night. Just had the backstitching and beads to do. Still it took about 3 hours. I've also been working on my Winter F & S square, but can't post a photo till it gets to it's final destination. A rather slow stitching week for me since I started back at work on monday after the Christmas break. Boy, is that a killer:) Hopefully, I'll get back to normal now.

So, I'm off to work on the Winter square. Till next time.

Carol's RR

Here's what I stitched on today while watching the Ravens beat Miami. This is Carol's RR. She asked that we all stitch 2 bands on her robin. She chose Just Nan's With my Needle as her chart for this over 2 RR. I stitched the last 2 bands.
