I Won!

A lady at the 123 Stitch Message Board was having a contest to name her new Webkinz dragon, and I suggested "Sabrina" for a girl and "Sebastian" for a boy. She chose Sabrina! So, I won a $20 gift certificate. I never win anything, so this was especially nice. What to choose, what to choose...

I've been stitching away on House #11. All the bricks were a challenge, but they're done and now I'm working on the roof. I'm so close I can taste it!

October is almost over. Where has this year gone?

Six of Six Is Done

WooHoo! Happy Dance with me! I finished Six of Six during football yesterday, so the set is done!

Now I'm anxious to start a new set of these, but I'll resist the urge until next year. Have you seen Valentine Wishes? I have a gorgeous piece of pink linen all ready for these, too!

Halloween Tuck Exchange

My partner for this Exchange was Shelli who is currently on vacation in Hawaii (I'm jealous), so her tuck bag is waiting for her in her mailbox. This is what I stitched for her...

I really hope Shelli enjoys her tuck bag and treats.

Flying 101 Framed

Vee framed my "Flying 101" and I just got it back yesterday. Isn't it adorable? I LOVE the purple frame!

I finally got the frogging done on Six of Six and worked on it for a bit last night. I sure wish I had a smaller Q-Snap because my carpal tunnel really hurts when I work in hand. I know I have a hoop "somewhere." LOL

Happy stitching, and have a great day!

Nothing Like The Smell...

Of a new magazine! I finally located the JCS Ornament Issue at my local Barnes & Noble and I see what all the fuss is about. Definitely the best one, IMO. It was hard to decide, but my favorite ornament of them all has to be Rosewood Manor's "Peace."

I have been tagged by Miss Rachael to name some Quirky things about me, so I thought I'd make them stitchy things. The rules are...

* Link to the person who tagged you.
* Post the rules on your blog.
* Write six random things/unspectacular quirks about yourself.
* Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
* Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
* Let the tagger know when your entry is posted

1) I'm a floss licker.
2) I wash my hands before and several times while stitching.
3) I think WDW threads taste funny.
4) I'm a stash hoarder.
5) I put dinner napkins under the clamps of my Q-Snaps to hold the fabric in place.
6) I love stitching one over one.

Now, if you're reading this, you've been TAGGED! Come play along, and let me know when you've posted YOUR Quirky Things!

Eva's House Is Finished

For Eva I stitched LHN's "Peachtree Cottage..."

And here is her piece so far. I'm sorry for the wrinkles. Iron hasn't made it to the new house yet...

I hope she likes my addition to her neighborhood. I really enjoyed stitching this one.

Moving Preempts Stitch Night

BUT, Miss Lynne did house sit for the Verizon guy for me yesterday and she got a lot done.

My Halloween Tuck is in the mail to my partner, so I'll post a picture when she's let me know she's received it. It turned out really cute.

I so hope I get to sit and stitch for a while tonight. I need the therapy...AND the REST! LOL

Eva's House

This is the design that Eva chose for her TS Neighborhood Round Robin. Isn't it sweet?

I finished up the house and windows on my square last night. Just have the roof to go. I'm also going to add a few flowers around the yard, and maybe follow Missy's lead and add some little bluebirds. I'm really enjoying my first RR experience. I'm very lucky to have such sweet girls to stitch for!

My House With A Porch

Jorja finished her square on my TS Neighborhood RR and I just love it! She couldn't have chosen a better design. I absolutely adore the porch and the chimneys. I can't wait to see it in person!

This is where I am on House #11. I've put it away to stitch on Eva's RR for now, but I think I can manage to have it done by the end of the month. I love the orange, and the way the gold tones it down. Click to see it bigger...

Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone, and HAPPY STITCHING!

Eva's Neighborhood Has Arrived

I received Eva's beautiful RR piece in the mail and have gotten a start on my house for her. I love the color of the fabric she chose. Missy did CHN's "The Needlework Shop" for her square, so I think my choice will work nicely. Didn't she do a beautiful job?

I've also got to frog quite a bit of Six of Six, so I've left that one alone for a few days. I guess I'll tackle it this weekend and get it back on track. Stupid amphibian. LOL
