A Surprise Win!

Shelly, who blogs as An Arizona Stitcher has recently had a few drawings on her blog. Well, I signed up for one and promptly forgot that I did until she emailed me that I had won and needed my mailing address!!! What a lovely surprise; and this is what I won:

Lizzie Kate Snippet #S45 My Favorite Time, a Blackbird Design Reward of Merit pin, and a cute notepad....all tied in a lovely ribbon, which I failed to photograph (but I will use in the finishing of this pattern).  Thanks Shelly!!

Catch Up

My life became a little crazy in November and then threw me into a wall in December....but is now calming down.
In November I found and purchased my first home. I found a little townhouse and moved in mid-November. Around the first of December I became extremely ill with a "possible" diagnosis of diverticulitis, which was officially confirmed the first of this month and was finally given instsructions/guidelines on how to heal and proceed from here.
Moving on to the fun stuff....I picked up a few Prairie Schooler patterns:

Very excited about these patterns!

And (drum roll, please) I have two stitching finishes...
