This That and Other Things

I just had the best supper ever
It was not a 5 course meal,
but you can't beat comfort food like mom's meatloaf and home grown sweet corn.

This afternoon when I got home from watching my 3 grandkids I checked our mail and seen that I had recieved a package from Jill, It was a giveaway that I had won. Look at all the neat things that I got.

These 5 beautiful Crescent Colours

Small Token pincushion from Blackbird Designs
(I already kitted this up to do)

and this cute needle keep with popicles on it

I also got a self stick note pad and not sure what happened to the picture I took.

Last week I stitched on two projects
the first one I have been working on for a while,
but I had to keep frogging so I have not gotten very far on it.

This is the Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler
and I started on part 2 as you can tell.
I am hopeing the rest goes smoothly and not much frogging.

The next piece I finished stitching is

Merry Christmas (freebie) by Log Cabin Needleworks
I stitched it on 28 count Linen with DMC floss
I found this pattern on Andrea's blog (The Craft Room)
She also has posted the instructions on how to finish it, which
I plan to do. There is also a Noel christmas ornament
that I have ready to do.

I am not sure how much stitching I am going to accomplish this week because I am watching 3 of my grandkids this week as there babysitter is on vacation. Oh well there is always next week, right.

Such lovely Crescent Colors, Denise. I love them all. Jill did a great job getting your gift together! It's wonderful!! Love your progress on BoaF MS. It's lovely so far. Here's hoping you get rid of the frogs. I can't wait to see your ornie totally finished. And the meatloaf and corn looks delicious!!!!! It's enough to make me hungry again, and I just ate!!!

Oh wow! i love meatloaf! add some mashed potatos to that meal and I'm there! lol! Lovely stash and stitching, I especially like the Ornie, love the colors...not really traditional, but it sorta is at the same time, if that makes sense! Beautiful stitching either way! =)
