After a very frustrating time of trying to resolve the issues on my home network - I think it is all finally working!
I haven't forgotten my giveaways - I'll hopefully post about that tomorrow.
First, some overdue acknowledgements:
I was thrilled to win Day 9 of the 13 Days of Halloween Giveaway over on Missy's blog. Her presentation was charming:
And look at all the goodies! Can you see the bat stickpin in the second photo? Mega cute!
Thank-you, Missy. I love it all!
Then, I was lucky enough to win a copy of Simon's Cat from Daffycat. Besides being beautifully wrapped in the ladybug paper you see in the photo, she included a heart charm - I have a project in mind for it! Sharon, thanks a million - I'll let you know what the grands think of the book - I know I'll enjoy it.
Monique received the Needle Book that I stitched for her for the Tiny Treasures Needle Book Exchange, so I can post a picture of that.
The design was a freebie months ago on Danybrod's site - I thought it adorable.
Here's a before photo of the EMS Rose Sampler SAL that I stopped working on last year:
And an update tonight of the progress I've made over the last ten days or so:
I'm stitching this in hand - and so it looks fantastically wrinkled right now! This is one of the projects in the basket by my comfy chair that I want to finish before the end of the year.
And last, but not least - my TUSAL update:
Better late than never! I am having to push down on the orts as I place them in the jar, but I think it will last until the end of the year (I hope!).
I have a gazillion blog posts to catch up with, and mega-dozens of emails, so that will be all for tonight.
Thank-you for visiting my blog today.
ETA: Blogger is driving me crazy with the way it handles photos - and it's a very short trip!
