Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post. I usually try to respond to them but I have been distracted a bit.
Masterchief left for Los Angeles early Sunday morning for a job. He won't be gone long though, long enough for me to get a few things done around here. You see, painting isn't one of his favorite things to do so when he is called away and I stay home, I usually find something to paint. This time it was the office.
The color is called Tender Twig. When I first started to paint I thought I wouldn't like it but I really do!
I went to a different Peddler's Mall near here on Monday and found a few more treasures...
I have been working on a few WIPs in my basket. I have to keep myself from getting discouraged about progress made. It's hard to see lots of headway made when I'm working on more than one piece.
|Saxon Sampler from the 1989 June/July issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine.|
|I stitched this once before and liked it so much I'm doing it again!|
|Ten Commandments by La D Da.|
I messed up the border on this one before and had to rip it out
and start over again. I now cross each X with a small prayer
that it will meet this time.

Well it is now afternoon, the sun is shining and I want to be out in it. But before I go soak in some rays I need to announce the winner of some stitchy stash, don't I? Oh you've been so patient.
There were 24 of you who asked to be entered in the drawing so I wrote your names down, folded them up and put them in a bowl.......
Since Masterchief isn't here to help me I did the honors..........
Vickie with an E from A Stitcher's Story is the winner! YAY!! After picking her name from the bowl I went to her blog for a visit. I am ashamed to say I found that I was not a follower. Well I am now! She has a great blog so pop on over if you haven't already. I will put together a few goodies and send them off soon. Vickie please email me with your mailing address!
Thank you all for entering my giveaway and reading this here little blog. I appreciate you all so much!
Now to get out in that sunshine! I feel like I am in low supply of vitamin D today.
