It's About Time for a GIve Away!

Imagine my surprise yesterday morning - I came to check posts before work. I had 101 followers. Today I am up to 102! Hello, to all! Nice to have you on board.

In celebration of the newest followers - I will be having a give away. I have the gift in mind. It's a bit different than my last give away. It doesn't seem as personal though which bothers me. So, I need to give it a little more thought and consideration. When my mind is made up - I will reveal all to you.

Primitive Winter isn't stitching as quickly as I had hoped. It has become repetitive and I'm bored with one color. In the last 4 of 5 projects - I have been limited color wise. Trick or Treat was all black, Old Crow had black and gray, Bluebird was blue, and now Primitive Winter is mostly gray. I started a RAK - and it is all one color too! Pardon me while I yawn. Colorful Sky might be picked up just to play with the colors! ;0)

Went to Jo-Ann's this morning after work. I wanted 4 fabrics (found 1), 3 trims (none to be had), ric-rac (yes), key for Olde Crow (yes), pom-pom's (yes, they had them but I didn't need them yet), and walnut shells (wrong store). Not very successful.

Tomorrow I am off the the Amish Quilt store to see if I can find some fabric deemed suitable for my pillows!

The weatherman lied to us. We were predicted to have 5-7" of the fluffy stuff. We got at most 2" Maybe more tonight - not holding my breath. I want one good big snow and then we can move right on into spring. If this cold weather holds on much longer I think we should all opt for a warm island stitching retreat -- anyone want to come with me??

Well, it's about bed time for me.

I would love to be entered in your blog giveaway!
Too funny about your stitching colors....I would be yawning too!!!!
Hey, I want to go with you!!!! The Amish quilt store sounds heavenly to me!!! I need to get to my Amish bulk food store, but I have to wait til the weather clears up. We were suppose to get 4-6 inches today & we did.....roads are slick & hazardess.
I say a warm island retreat sounds heavenly!!!!

Woohoo! Congrats on having over 100 Followers :o) I'm proud to be one of them!

Sigh...I wish I had stores like that nearby where I could go shopping at the drop of a hat.

We're supposed to get hit tonight and tomorrow but we'll see what happens. Maybe we'll just get more rain ;o)

Denise, congrats on all of the followers! I am sure that your giveaway will be wonderful and appreciated.

We got over 6 inches, which is what they predicted for us, in southern indiana....worst part is tonight, wind and bitter cold, making whatever snow melted on the road, very hazardous for travel..ugh! Staying in for sure!

Happy Shopping, hope you find all you need and want.

well we got some of your snow but I am liking the idea of a retreat on a nice warm island. Hell even a nice warm room with nice fireplace and some good friends would be in order right now.
As always

I LOVE giveaways!!!!
I also love your snow picture.
I grew up in PA and miss the snow sooo much. I'll have to go back for a snowy visit some day.

I am new to your blog, I saw it on the Pumkin Patch. Wish we could see a store closed because of snow, I am in California and it's in the 70's today.
I did like your idea with the light coming from underneath to see on the dark fabric. I did my first piece on black before Christmas and had to keep a white towel on my lap to see the holes.

Hey There, Ladybug,

Fire your snail mail address off to me. I thought I had it, but, of course, now that I need it I can't find it.

Hopefully I will get the Birthday Presents out the 1st of next week :0}
