I started it Oct. 29, 2007 :) I met my first goal




Now for the winners of the Breast Cancer Awareness give-away



First winner of the bracelet and pen go to Carla



Second winner pulled for the peeler is Brenda (no blog)




Congratulations! Carla and Brenda




Do you notice the ABC is ripped out from the last post? I went off the wrong chart on the pamplet for a different design and ended up stitching the ABC and border the color that is of the bird. I didnt want to frog the border or have that much of one color. So I will do the alphabet in 310 or maybe a forest green, not sure yet.

This one is hard to put down

Thanks so much for visiting me.

Happy Stitching!!

Forest turned out gorgeous, congrats on your lovely finish. Your WIP is looking beautiful too, the bird looks awesome on that fabric. I like your ideas for the changing in coloring for the letters. Hopefully with those adjusted you won't have any more visits from the frogs.

Oh, My Goodness, Ranae!!! And a Forest Grew is Gorgeous! Just lovely, Hun!!! I love it! Congrats on such a Wonderful accomplishment, Sweety!!! I'd doing a Snoopy Happy Dance for you!!! :-)

And I LOVE your Blackbird's Winter Delivery! I have that one in my stash and it's gorgeous on R&R's Cranberry bog! Is it difficult to see the holes on that dark red? If it's not too bad, I may stitch mine on that colour as well, as I just LOVE yours!

You've really been doing a lot of beautiful stitching whilst I've been MIA... I just love it all!

Thank you ever so kindly for your lovely thoughts and words of encouragement, Sweety!!!
