Another Week Almost Completed

I have been tired this week. The secret is go to bed at a decent hour and it would help. Oh well, I'm a little slow. I completed my LHN "Snowy Pines". I think I will make it into a little pillow with a hanger. Since I have a 4 day weekend I should be able to get it together. I've said that before and it is still on my to do list. What can I say but so much to do and so little time.

I have joined another exchange group. My friend Becky K in OK is not a good influence. She is always emailing me and saying check this exchange out. I take my stitching to work and I do it instead of eating and visiting. I get quite a bit done each day if I'm not having to help a student. Wish I could drive and stitch. Man that would be great.

Here is a picture of Marty Jay wearing his bunny ears that we sent to his Golden Retriever cousin ,Marley, who lives in Texas with our grandchildren.

Great Giveaway

I'm glad you are visiting my blog and leaving comments and wanting to be included in the drawing. It will be here before we know it.

I have been stitching on my LHN "Snowy Pines". I hope to work on it this evening.

We will be visiting our children in Texas for the next 2 days so I thought I would leave an Irish Blessing.

A Blessing on Everyone
As plentiful as the grass that grows,
Or the sand on the shore,
Or the dew on the lea,
So the blessing of the King of Grace
On every soul that was, that is, or will be.

Tax Day Giveaway

Here are pictures of some of the stash to be given away. I will give it all to one person. I will certainly send to international bloggers. I want it out of my sewing room. Here are Molly and Marty. They will do the drawing for the giveaway. They were snoozing in their crates.

I will start checking the other spots this week. I am on spring break so if I find more stash then we will have another drawing soon. I will throw some other goodies in with it. If I have not used them in several years I wont start now. I need to de-clutter!!!!!!! Thanks for the great response.

Tax Day Give Away

As you have read I commute 2 hours each day to work so when I get home I have all of these wonderful plans but I make the mistake of sitting down in my recliner and that is all she wrote. So I do my majority of stitching on the weekends. I do not have to clean the house or do the laundry because my sweet retired husband does that for us. That saves me. Here is what I have done on my Little House Needleworks, "All Dolled Up". Not much, but it is a start.
I have been cleaning out my stash and I am going to have a drawing on April 15th. April 15th makes us cranky around here so I thought I would put some joy into it. Just post a comment on my blog. Please tell all your friends about it. I have 48 kits that include the pattern, fabric, threads, and needles.(In most of them) They are from the Silver Needle's Secret Needle Night, Stitchwork's Fabric and Stuff, and there are some from Designs from Margaret Lee. There are 24 patterns which include Homespun Elagance, Just Nan, Bent Creek, Claire Hatten Designs, and many others.
Make sure I have your email address so I can contact you. Enjoy your day!
