Giveaway reminder and an update.

I will be conducting the giveaway for the Christmas stocking on November 17. Everyone that is a follower will be entered. If you are reading this and not a follower, come join in on the fun. There is also a giveaway going on at http://http//

I did get "Joyful and caring" back from the framers. It turned out beautiful. It is now hanging in the family room next to "strong and beautiful." I need to get "gentle and kind" finished and take it to the framers too.

I have started "Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow". I have not gotten much done. Between work and Mr. Aiden, I am lucky to have two hours a week to stitch.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and leave such nice comments. It is very much appreciated.

It has been a month since I posted and I apologize. I have been very, very busy with work. I have been able to get a little bit of stitching in though. I have finished a good portion of Aiden's birth sampler. Now I need to add the bit at the bottom with his name and birthdate plus a little backstitching.

I ordered CHS's Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow and have started it. I will post a pic when I have a little bit more done. This will be a long term project. I am still working on "gentle and kind" by LHN and making bookmarks for my daughters, with Brianna receiving the first.

My little monkey, better known as Aiden, had his first "boy" haircut yesterday. I have a few before and after pics. This was a very traumatic event for grandma. Aiden doesn't look like a baby anymore, now he looks like he is going to be 3 in January. Aiden looks very serious in the pic!

I see that I have 17 followers now! Thank you! I appreciate you reading my blog and leaving comments. I am going to have a giveaway for my followers. If you are a follower or become a follower, I am going to enter your name on a drawing for a cross stitch Christmas stocking. It is a lovely kit. I will have Aiden pull out a name on November 17. That will allow me to mail the stocking to the winner and they may be able to work on it for this Christmas. Good luck to all of you.
