August IHSW and TUSAL...and Giveaway Reminder

What a fantastic weekend I had!   Ran some errands and went shopping most of Saturday, but spent a good amount of my Sunday doing nothing but STITCHING!



For my August IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) I was able to finish page 1 of Tamlin:

Before:

And After:


I printed a color copy of the artwork for comparison's sake.  



I'm also a bit late on my TUSAL for August, so I guess it is better late than never!

My TUSAL jar is pretty empty this month.......I'll have to make up for it this month!   This is a picture next to the Olympic Torch my daughter Kella made in her daycare class  :)



Also..just a reminder to everyone that I'm having a giveaway of 3 different Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum charts.....which ends this Sunday (August 26) at noon EST.   Enter enter enter! :)


I can't believe Fall is just around the corner!  Yippee!  My favorite season and time of the year!
