We Have A Winner!

Good morning my friends! A big welcome to my new friends! How are you? We are still surrounded by snow. It is so cold every day, the snow is going nowhere.

The winner of the January Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine is Jo! I have emailed you Jo. I cannot find your address at the moment. Would you please email it to me again? =)

So these would be my orts from 2012. I began collecting them when I began this blog, back in February.
This vase in the snow is 10 inches high. I have emptied it now. I will save up for another year. I plan to set the orts outside in a few months, for the birds to build beautiful, colored nests. ;)

I have no stitching pictures to share right now. I am still stitching on that Christmas ornament over one on 32ct. That takes longer than you plan on. ;)

This is what I see every day.
 Little Miss Mabel and her monkey. Enough with the monkey!!! Some days I literally feel like hiding the monkey. I never have. That would be mean. And I do love my poodle. But this is one tireless, fetching poodle. Oh my, does she ever love to play fetch with that monkey. *_*

I hope you have a wonderful, stitchy day my friends. God bless you!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

I love Mabel! Ten years ago, I had a poodle that looked exactly like her! The two big dogs I have now love to chase the toys I throw, but they never will bring them back to me, sure miss the poodle!

At least Mabel just not steal bobbins of thread like my little kitten - cheeky!

Krista said...

Congrats to Jo! What a great idea for all of your orts to give to the birds.

Karen said...

Mabel is so cute. But I guess after about the 10th time, it would get a little tiresome...lol. Wishing you a Blessed Day!
