Two More Giveaways

To be perfectly honest - I thought about not posting this - I'd love to win both - and the fewer entries the better my chances - right?
But here I am, letting you know I found these so you can have a chance too. The soul of generosity, that's me - lol!

First up is Craftymoo (Sarah) who accidentally purchased two lots - her mistake is some lucky stitcher's gain! And she's even including fabric! How sweet is that?

And then there is April (whom I know thru TTE, Too) - she's been inspired by all the other giveaways in blogland to have her own generous giveaway. It's a MYSTERY, but she lists an incredible number of things she's including, not the least of which is something stitched by her very own self. Good for you April!

I did the finishing for my Holiday Ornament Exchange over at the EMS Board, so it's ready to go in the mail Monday. Next on the stitching schedule is the Humbug for TTE, Too.

I've been trying to decide how to finish I'm Wicked - I stitched this on a scrap of dark blue aida - and only today when I hauled out some orange fabric did I realize that would give it the wrong team colors (you have to be an Alabama Football fan - Roll Tide! - to understand).

I've also been sorting out my craft room - a daunting task - and looking for the old, old piece I want to finish before the end of the month for SALsuffit.

I'm putting a few stitches in the EMS Rose Sampler SAL from 2008 tonight. I had to put it down last year when my eyesight deteriorated (all fixed now - yea!), and only recently got it back out so I can (hopefully) finish it before the end of this year. This is the last progress picture from last year - and it literally had not been touched in a year - I'm so ashamed, because I love this piece. Do you have something languishing in your stash that you want to get out and stitch?

My stash diet was truly broken last night - temptation won! I ordered two charts from The Sampler Girl (they were on sale!): Jane Austen on the Weather (which I fell in love with the first time I saw it) and The Witch School Sampler 1821 (ditto!). I will probably tell DH, "Look what you got me for Christmas!" - lol! Please tell me I'm not the only one to break my diet. You've done it too, haven't you?

Thanks for visiting today!

I'm Wicked turned out sweet! Hope you can find a team-safe color to pair with the blue.

The wicked piece is really cute. Maybe if you use a halloween orange fabric it wouldn't be so wrong. :o) Thanks for the links to the giveaways - I always enter but very rarely win but I have found some great blogs through these links.
