Good morning to all stitchers, cardmakers, and other crafty people. It is wonderful to be able to share our crafts and stitchery with other friends that enjoy hobbies and life.
Wow, I am at 211 followers right now. Thanks to Vicki having a Grow Your Blog Party. See earlier post. Also, my give a way doesn't end until Feb. 1. Check it out on my last weeks post and let me know if you would like to be entered in the give a way.
Yea, Yea and Yea, I finished Lilly-Nora Corbett design. It will be for my granddaughter, Anna's 13th Birthday on January 30. Also, finished my first ornament of 2013. Here are my pictures of the completed pieces and the WIP progress I worked on this past week. Also, pictured is the cubby organizer I got for Christmas. Diane at Littlehouse Needlework has been showing and talking about the cubby for a while and I fell in love with it. As you can tell, some of my cardinal collections will be displayed in it as well as some of my crossstitch. I am posting my cards that I am making for the 365 Card challenge and Christmas Card as I make them.

The beading is hard to see but it really makes the piece stand out.
Before framing and after framing.
I am still learning to frame so it is not perfect, but it is me.

Good Morning all. I have had a busy week it seems, but I did still get in some stitching and card making. My Beta Sigma Phi chapter had a Hard Times Luncheon on Saturday. It was fun.
Then my daughter went away for a girls weekend and I had Grandmother duty. I took 2 12 year girls to the Mall on Sunday afternoon. I did a lot of sitting and watching the people while the girls did their shopping. It was fun. I joined in on a "Grow Your Blog" party that Vicki is hosting at http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com There are 400 blogs that are taking part in it and I have discovered somenew blogs that I am now following. She is having a give a way with it as well. Check it out.
My blog followers have now grown to 206, wow. I am going to have a same give a way on Feb 1. You only have to leave a comment and you email or blog address to win. I will picture it below.
For the new followers, a little about me is that I stitch on a rotation. At the moment I have 19 projects that I rotate, listed on my sidebar. 8 projects, I stitch each week and the others I rotate on a weekly basis. I have also joined a couple of card making blogs, that I am enjoying, also. There are http://365cards.blogspot.com and http://christmascardchallenges.blogspot.com , What fun, I love cards and this is enabling me to grow my collection. You have a challenge daily for the greeting cards and weekly challenge for the Christmas cards.
I did finish my Friendly Stitchers Valentine exchange and got it in the mail on Saturday. I will post a picture next week after she had received it. It is my first finish for 2013. Here is my progress on my WIPs for the past week.
