The winner to the giveaway---

Is Bonnie. Congratulations!  I have just sent you an email.  I am sorry I had to close the giveaway early but I wasn't sure I would be online.  I will definately get it in the mail on Tuesday.  I forgot the post office will be closed on Monday.

I just wanted to show you some updates as well.  The first item I want to show is a scarf I am crocheting for my middle son.  Once a week my neighbor Cari and I go to another neighbors house to do needlework.  I was able to do 2-1/2 rows this week.  I hope to finish it by Thursday because she is going to teach me how to knit.  I am scared but excited. 

My very sweet neighbor/friend gifted me 2 different Thirty-one bags. One for my cross-stitching and one for my crochet/knitting materials.  I will have to make both Yvonne and Cari a biscornu as a thank you gift.  I know they would love one.

Well Cari and I were doing so well with walking once the kids got on the bus.  However, since we detest the cold, wet, windy, rainy conditions that occur this time of year in North Carolina, we are going to craft together instead.  We figure we wont be able to eat if we are doing our crafts and it will make it less lonely.  I have finished the wording and the ribbon border on this Christmas WIP.  I will do this on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.  I really want to get this done.
I am a member of Wednesdays UFO group on facebook.  I have yet to dedicate a Wednesday for a UFO. However, I have found the perfect project.  This is no longer available and was a free design in 2010.  I wanted to finish it last year but wasn't able to.  It will get done this year (I hope). I am using Dinky Dyes silk on Belfast linen and love working with this floss.

Well thank you for visiting my blog, it really means so much to me.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week.



  1. Beautiful stitching! The Christmas SAL was a fun one to do...I did mine all in 'smalls', as I didn't want a large piece to frame.

  2. My goodness Mary! What a talented lady you are. I've been a follower of yours for a while, but need to get back here far more often than I do. I love it here!
