I have been going through my stitchy stuff and decided it was time to make room for other stitchy stuff so I have decided to do a "give away". These to projects are up for grabs this month. They are completely stitched but not "finished" in any way. Leave me a comment or send me a post if you are interested and I will have Gabbie pick a name on the October 20th. I hope to list at least 2 projects in November and at least 2 in December.
Have fun and good luck.

a "little" news from WI

I thought I would share with you the newest addition to our family. This is Tiger Lily and she is 6 weeks old. She is the sweetest, fiestiest kitten I have ever owned. She is in a household with 3 other cats who are all at least 5 times bigger than she is but 2 of the 3 didn't know what she was at first. They had never seen a kitten before. The first day the bigger cats hissed and spit at her and she hissed and spit right back. It was so cute, she would arch her little back, puff up her tail and hiss right in their faces! Now the bigger ones have accepted her and they all now think she is a toy to play with. She is adjusting to our lives just fine.

And now for the BIG news.......

Here it is!!! Amber's first cross stitch piece. I am so proud of her. She did a great job and even the wording was that hard once she figured out her mistake. She did the "Christmas" and when she did the "2009" she couldn't figure out why the counting wasn't coming out. She did 6 stitches instead of 5. I bet we counted the stitches 10 times before she figured out what she did. Now she is helping me with other ornaments. I will post other pictures as they are finished. We did plan to make this little guy into a door hanger pillow as he is alittle big for our small Christmas tree.

I hope everyone has a great weekend with lots of stitching time. Those that are cold, I send my warmest wishes and to those who are still in the warmth, stay cool.
