A RAK from Anne!

Yesterday, I received a RAK from Anne in Australia. She had a giveaway on her blog for this Drawn Thread chart. Though, I didn't win it-she has so very generously RAK'ed me the chart and couple of Gentle Arts threads to go with it. It is so very sweet of her-especially with the year she has had to think of me in such a way. I appreciate it more than words could ever say! Thanks Anne! I know we often say this-but I really believe stitcher's are some the nicest people on the planet!

PS: Thanks to all of you for your kind words on Carol's exchange!

Winter Exchange for Carol

Carol let me know that she received her winter exchange today. I used a little kit by Just Another Button Co. called bring it on. I call it winter with an attitude and since Carol has had such a rough one I thought this was appropriate. Sometimes you just have to have an attitude to make it through all the snow some of you all get. I can't even imagine snow from a balmy 70 plus degrees here today Florida! I finished it into a flat fold. I sent her a needleroll chart by Periphaeria Designs and the cutest thread holder by Monique . They are so neat and you can find them at her Etsy Shop . Go on over and grab you a few! I also sent some stitcher's lotion, chocolate and silk threads. I am glad you liked everything Carol! Coming soon a happy dance on African Woman! Hope everyone's St. Patrick's Day treated you well!

African woman wip and some stash.....

Here is an update on African woman currently in progress. She is coming along nicely and hopefully I will be finished soon. The last time I posted-her dress only came down to where her hands are. So, that gives you an idea of how much I have progressed. I am looking forward to finishing her. I found another pattern similar to her by Bleu de Soie and I am going to stitch that as an companion piece-it's called African woman and child. I have been busy working, but I finally got my winter exchange out to Carol today. So, pics next week. Now that it's done I am trying to decide what I will really focus on besides my little woman here.

Below is some of the stash that I have gotten over the last month. An eclectic little mix don't you think? I am sure that this is not all-but posting anymore would probably make me feel guilty or have me running for the nearest therapist (Carol, do you think I need help? LOL) I won't label everything, the pics. are clickable. But, if you have a question just email me or leave it in the comments. Last but not least I want to thank you all for your kind words of sympathy for my little Midnight. I appreciated you more than you know and your words were very comforting. Now, I am off to feed the masses better known as my children! Have a grest weekend!
