Flag Day!

Good Morning Everyone! Today is Flag Day here in the good ole US of A. In case you didn't know my give away ends today. The winner has been picked...who? We'll get to that a bit later.

I told you I had started another patriotic piece and it is coming along rather nicely.

We the People
Erica Michaels
30ct Natural Linen
DMC floss
Had to change up the color on the lettering of We the People. It called for 3866 and it almost matched the linen perfectly. Tried B5200 and it still wasn't bright enough. So, I went the other way and used 422. My husband suggested outlining the letters and although it was a good idea - there was no way in the world I wanted to do that. Outlining has become the bane of my existence!

Can't believe it's Thursday already. Have a busy weekend planned. Saturday I have to get groceries as I won't be in town on my regular grocery day. (Yes, I get groceries the same day every week.) And we have our last graduation party and then DH and I are going where we went on our first date. It's no where special except to us - sitting on a dock at Tappan Lake. Sunday is Father's Day and we have the food planned out. For him, I guess, that's the best part.

Which brings me to early next week - Monday I am planning to head towards Cleveland and check out the LNS and pick up my birthday cake. Come home make dinner and have some of that cake! And then Tuesday finds me another year older and having more cake for breakfast. (Can you see the importance of cake in my life?) Seems DH, the boy, my mom, and myself will be going out for dinner. No place fancy because ribs are on the menu.

Since I've tortured you enough -- would you like to know the winner of my give away??


But wait... I would first like to say thank you to all who entered and also hello to all my newest followers. I now have well over 200 and that calls for another give away. So, stay tuned maybe I'll pick something up at the LNS to give away!

And now the winner is ...

It's April in Alabama

Congratulations April - if you could please email me your snail mail address - I would love to be able to send this package out to you today!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
