September WIPocalypse

I'm a little late...but hey...that's the story of my life! :)

Thanks to everyone that wished me well during this darn cold....and yes...I still have it!   At this point I may be going for the World Record for longest cold, or possibly the most nose blowing!

Some quick pics of my WIPocalypse progress this past month  (I say quick, but after I loaded them all I was pleasantly surprised by how much progress I made these last 30 days!):

September TUSAL and September IHSW

My September TUSAL:

My jar is actually more full than I had expected!  Mostly within the past few weeks, as I've been sick and haven't done much besides lay around in bed and stitch!  (no complaining on my end...I've been loving it!)

When I went to grab my ORT jar for the picture, my daughter's Lil' Pony was on the same table...she likes to put her own "pretties" in there then bring it to me to see her handi-work.   The fabric everything is sitting on is something I bought to work on a Christmas stitchy gift.  We'll see if I ever get around to it!

And my September IHSW:

I chose to work on my Lanterns piece.   My goal is to have all but the back stitching on this done before the end of this month! (yeah right, lesli!)

Before the weekend

After the weekend

As I shared earlier, I've been sick for the past couple of weeks.  I can't seem to shake this thing!  So it absolutely made my dreary day when I received an email from Kate letting me know I won a $25 gift certificate to for her Blogaversary!   

Visit her adorable site here:   Momuboocrea Island  and if you scroll through her posts to the one on 09/11/2012 you can listen to her cute audio blog!

This also reminds me...don't forget to enter my Blogaversary contest as well...just click here!  

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend full of family, fun and stitching!  I'm off to check out all your updates!

It's a Partayyyy!

Seriously do you spell the dang word...Blogeversary, Blogaversary....Blogiversary?  Surely someone must know .....even WIKIPEDIA didn't have it <gasp!>

Enough rambling....let's get to the good stuff!

October 2nd is the 1 year anniversary of my blog-adventure!  If you're bored and would like to check out my first post....wander on over here   (it's boring...not a single picture...what was I thinking?)

I thought long and hard and soft and short....... and at first I was going to go through my humongous stash of goodies...then I was going to do some shopping...but instead what I decided was to get someone what THEY'D like..... so for my 1 year celebration I'll be giving away a $50 gift certificate/card to anywhere that offers them! 

Winner receives a gift certificate/card of their choice!  Some ideas might be:

 long as I can buy a gift card or certificate from a store (they have to accept US dollars...but they all do, don't they?) can choose it!

The usual rules....
  • Be a follower
  • Post a comment
  • Please include your email
  • Please include the store you choose, if you don't choose one...I'll choose one! :)
All entries will be given a number and the winner chosen by my good ole' number generator.

Drawing will end at midnight EST on Friday, October 5th (I one year is on the 2nd, but that's the middle of the week...and this gives folks more time to enter!)

Winner will be announced sometime on Saturday!

Good luck...and thanks for hanging in there with me for the past year!
