It's Time!

Hey everybody! We did it! I have surpassed 100 followers, and quite obviously that could never have happened without you. :) This is amazing to me. Thank you.

So you know what we have to do now. Give away that Christmas Friends chart.


If you would like the chart, be or become a follower of mine. Also please leave me a comment stating that, right here on this post only please. I will draw a name on Monday July 9th.

I thought I would show you what I bought with the last bit of birthday money.


Money well spent, right? It's a poodle thimble!! I can't stand it! It is a little big for me. It fits my middle finger pretty well. I love it. ♥


You can see she even fits in my needlecase I made last year. The pattern for this 'housewife' needlecase can be found here. I used vintage pink ribbon for it of course.

The Bent Creek Bunny chart arrived in California with Annette.♥

Hello new followers, I am glad you found me. :)

We are still having temperatures in the 100's! More stitching time again today then. :) Hope you have a stitchy day too!

stitching and praying,
Vickie
