Anyway...... enough education! :) I hope everyone was able to spend time with their friends and family on the Thanksgiving holiday. And if you don't celebrate this day, I still hope you spent time with friends and family!
Did any of you go shopping today and brave the crazy crowds of people? There were people at local stores here that have been camping out in tents for days, waiting for the sales! I completely can't figure out why they'd do it, but to each his own.....and if any of you did go shopping, I'd love to hear about your adventures!
While all the hustle and bustle goes on around town, I'm inside with my family....watching movies and.....STITCHING!
Here's what my two current WIPs look like now.....and hopefully I can post an update on Monday with some major progress over the next 3 days!
I haven't worked on Angel of Hope since the last update I posted, but here's a picture of what she still looks like....I'd love to get her done before December starts!
And a close-up:
Has anyone joined the 2012 WIPocalypse that's being run by Measi? I joined and I'm starting to put my list of projects together in my head. What is the WIPocalypse? Starting in January, you'll post a list of all the projects/pieces you want to finish by the end of the year. You can adjust that list, add/delete, throughout the year...so don't think you have to have set items now. Then, on every Full Moon, you post your progress photos, even if there's no progress to your site and update Measi. The best part - for each Full Moon that you post an update, your name goes into the giveaway drawing that she'll be having on New Year's Day, 2013! Visit Measi's blog for more info and to sign up!
Now just prior to Turkey day, I was so happy to see that I had 56 followers! What a surprise to find that over just a few days I'm already up to 84! That means....new items for the giveaway! For getting to 65 and 75, I'm adding 2 new items to each of my drawings.
New items for my main drawing:
|Cute holiday gift card kit|
|3 skeins of DMC cotton floss - your choice of colors (winner can let me know what they need!)|
And new items for my additional drawing:
|22 count fabric in rust - 12"x12"|
|Janlynn's Chart - Celestial. The picture is small.. a beautiful image of the sun/moon, planets and all of the signs|
I know I've stated it before....but I'll say it again :) Thank you to all my followers! I love seeing all the work/updates you post to your blogs and I sincerely appreciate when you take the time to read my updates and post. I look forward to getting to know all of you!
