Hello my lovelies!!
Thank you again for all your lovely comments on my last post!! I do not have a heck of a lot of stitching, nor finishing to show you. This weekend was quite busy with church, making borscht, cleaning and organizing. Hopefully next weekend will be the time to finish my ornaments. I have two Christmas ornies to finish and two other finishes to actually finish. I hope the finishing fairy bites me quick because time is a ticking!!!
Quick word about Christmas cards...I will be organizing the cards and addresses today and hope to mail them out by Friday!
Some blog news - I'm participating in a couple of online ventures and am quite excited about them. One, I will be a part of Jo's Advent Calendar. My day is the 24th so keep an eye out for that. I missed it last year and am really happy to be a part of it this year! Two, I'm taking part in Nicola's Scarlet Letter Challenge. She is celebrating her 50th birthday and the prizes are unbelievable!! Even if I don't win a prize, I don't mind because I'm very excited about starting Hannah Brassington in the New Year. After finishing Jane, I've been feeling a little off not stitching a sampler. As much as I love my TBF and Knotgarden, stitching a sampler is so comforting to me that I need to be working on one at all times. I hope to finish Hannah and may be able to start Marion Robertson in 2013. I have high hopes!!
I've posted the photos before but here's a reminder of what they look like. I am awaiting the supplies for Hannah. Talk about expensive! AVAS silk....sigh....I had to do it though. Never worked with the silk and want to give it a go.
I'm also going to be part of a Random Act of Stitching Kindness, hosted by Angela from Hooked on Stitches. It's my first time being a part of any sort of exchange/RAK. I did send out a few RAKs this year and really enjoyed doing that. I wanted to send out more but then life got in the way. With being a part of a group, I think it will give me the focus and the push to stitch and finish smalls. I am pretty excited about it and am already thinking of what to create!!
Lots of firsts for me this year! I think 2013 will be a great year for stitching!
I didn't forget about the Red and Cream Aida draw.....4 people entered (I wish I had 4 pieces of red aida to give away!)
The winner is.........................Rosey175!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will email you Rosey about your win!
Want a stitchy update? Here's TBF (lots of nasty Kreinik) and Titus:
Luckily he's a gentle boy and doesn't claw my stitching....although I did move him away right afterwards. He really loves to plop onto my stuff doens't he?!?!!!!
