Valentines and Giveaways

My last update was last Thursday and the two pieces that I showed you that day have not been touched since, because Friday I decided to start a new piece that I didn't think would take too long to do. I mostly stitch in the evenings while sitting with my DH watching TV. I finally put the last stitches in it last night. 
Basket of Hearts by Tereena Clarke
Fabric - 28 ct Autumn Blush Cashel Vintage linen
Floss  - DMC 321, 666,& 3706
WDW Swiss Chocolate, & Baby's Breath

I plan to go to town today and find some Valentine material to make this into a small pillow. My next project is to get my Christmas ornament stitched for the month of February. More on that after I decide which one I will do, I have so many that I want to do!

On Monday I got an email from Terri at  Dixiesampler that I had won her give away, Oh Ya for me! Thank you very much Terri! I got another email that she had mailed it out yesterday and that I should have it my Saturday so I will be watching the mail box for the the next couple of day. I will post all my goodies when I receive them.

Speaking of Give aways  as you can see on my side bar my Blogoversary is in 26 days so I will be planning a give away of my own. But more info on that in a future post.

Well I am still sitting here in my PJ's so it time to go put some big girl clothes on so my granddaughter & I can go shopping for that material I need. And there are always other errands to do.

Happy Stitching everyone!

I love stitching at night in front of the tv, of course I don't actually watch the tv then, just listen.
