I will probably need to get up here in a minute to punch it down.
I won a wonderful giveaway a little while back and have just gotten around to taking pictures. Heather offered this on her blog and I was SO VERY EXCITED when I found out I was the lucky one!
Heather sent SIX charts and an adorable little gingerbread man pillow! Isn't he sweet? Heather even included some of the threads for one of them! I have never been much of a seasonal stitcher so this has really inspired me to get moving on some Christmas goodies. Thank you so much Heather! You are so generous to have offered such a lovely giveaway.
Marly from Santas and Samplers crafted some very useful (and very prim-gorgeous) boxes and I knew I had to purchase a few to hold some of my stitchy goodness.
I have them on top of one of my stash cupboards right now but I think I will take that basket out from under them and put it somewhere else. The larger oval one will be perfect to keep some of my threads in! Thank you Marly for holding them until I returned home from Georgia. I love them!
Well now that I have jumped on the WIP wagon I needed another basket to put them all in! I once had to drive 1 1/2 hours to the nearest Hobby Lobby but not now. I have been giddy with anticipation ever since I found out one was opening up right close to where I do my grocery shopping! I tell you I must have spent close to two hours just walking through that place yesterday! It was so crowded. I used a 40% off coupon to get this new WIP basket...
I like the size of it and the handles. It will be full of zippered bags holding WIP's very soon!
Here is one of them...
I couldn't decide which one to put up. It's amazing how lighting can really change the look of one piece! The first one probably best shows the true colors.
Carmen over at Primcats named 7 little known things about her on her blog and challenged her readers to do the same. I'm going to do it too.....on my next post. I think this post has kept you long enough and if you are still with me I thank you so very much!
I have punched my dough down and I think it's about time to put it in a pan to rise once again.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the time (and word verification headaches) you take to comment.
Hope the remainder of your Sunday is sunny too!
