Another Finsh and Some Winners!

I finished Basket of Memories last night. It was such a quick and easy design. Thank you Lee for offering to swap with me. Loved this little piece. I'm going to make it a pillow. I need to find the perfect backing fabric.

Lugana Ice Blue 28ct

See the little heart - I had to change it. It was an outline of a heart and then it had a criss-cross in the center. I thought it looked a bit like an Aunt Annie's Pretzel. So, I filled it in. Besides - if I had left it as charted - I would be hungry for pretzel and cheese all day!

Ladies, I will be contacting you be email for your snail mail addresses. Thank you for playing! btw - enjoyed your early stitching stories.

Well, I'm off to finish kitting Birds of a Feather. Have to find the rest of the floss! Can't believe I'm missing some of the DMC it calls for. Going to be really disappointed if I can't start this until the end of the week. My local Jo-Ann's is moving across town and the grand opening is Friday. Time for some serious searching!

Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. Much appreciated. My day has been uneventful and the cake was tasty!
Denise

ps - Jayne, I got The Four Agreements! It is next on my reading list.
