I Won! I Won!

Mary Ann (Just Stitching) had a drawing for the spring sampler chart above and all the threads to do it. I entered my name and won! I am so excited! Mary Ann is a very special internet friend. She was the first person to leave a comment on my blog, and she also stitches lots of beautiful charity squares! Thank you! Thank you, Mary Ann! I can't wait to get it!

I did the little piece above yesterday. I did the spring one and had it hanging on my wooden perpetual calendar. I've been wanting to get this one done to hang there! I'm going to try to finish it as a tiny pillow sometime today. It's a freebie here. (Click on "Special Offers.") It was a quick little stitch! I couldn't see the finished picture very clearly and I thought the watermelon slice was a flower. I was really surprised when I got it finished! lol I love watermelons!

I got this much done on Autumn Sampler. This is really a challenge, and I really enjoy stitching it! I'm going to start my next charity square. It will be the guardian angel I did before. She will go to Cole's Quilts for Sophia. Then I will stitch her again for Allyson, also at Cole's Quilts. I have now stitched and mailed 20 squares. I have thoroughly enjoyed every square I have done. I'm sure I'm getting as much out of doing them as the recipient gets out of receiving them!!

DD's car is still on the blink! DD's Dad is trying to get it fixed as soon as possible! I'm just letting her use my car. I don't go out much, and I would rather stitch! lol

Tried a new recipe last night - a salmon pie. Surprisingly it was very good! All 3 of us loved it!

DB moved into the house he is renting. He doesn't have any furniture yet! He's sleeping in a lounge chair my mom gave him! He has all of his furniture and stuff in storage in Florida. It will probably be a while before he can afford to have it sent up here. He collects deer things, so I'm going to quickly stitch him a little deer magnet for his frig! lol I'm planning to do a deer pillow for him for Christmas. I did one for him in 1999 and it was the only thing he didn't put in storage. He brought it up here with him! It really touched me that it meant that much to him!

That's about all the news for today! Gonna get busy stitching! Have a day full of happy moments and may God bless you!

You are very welcome, Vicki!

I love the little summer piece--it was a fun stitch wasn't it?

And, your Autumn Sampler is coming right along. I know what you mean about it being a challenging piece. I have to be in the right mood to work on mine.

Congrats on the win Vicki, and Summer looks great. I have all four of these Janlynn season samplers and am currently stitching winter. You have inspired me to pull it out and put a few more stitches in it.

Congrats on the win and the finished princess squares. I am playing catch up on blogs. My grandbaby was born and is in NICU and the Sinnissippi Quilters make quilts for premies. I will have to put a pic in my next blog. It's not cross stitched, but it is beautiful.
