about time for a giveaway

I have reached fifty followers so I thought I would celebrate with a giveaway. I have a piece of linen and a prairie schooler amish pattern to giveaway and I may throw in a few more items to go with them! If you would like to be entered into the drawing,just leave a comment that you would like to participate. On November 10, I will put all the participants names in a container and I let Aiden choose the winner. Good Luck to everyone!
I do have a few pics to share. I have a blueladie design finish that I turned into a trivet. I am participating in a Fall SAL and have pic of that wip. I am, also, working on Prairie Schooler's "Santa's Night." I am stitching it on Navy blue 18 count aida instead of black. I am using gentle arts threads. Thanks for looking and Good Luck again to everyone!

forgot the finish!

I forgot to add the pics of spring's promise to the last update! Here they are!

Class reunion

In September, I attended by 30th high school classroom. It was a lot of fun! Tim and I attended a pigroast on the Friday night and I saw people that I had not seen since we graduated. On Saturday morning, our class rode on a float in the Septemberfest parade and then we went to a class picnic at a local park. Probably about fifty-sixty people were at the picnic. Saturday night we went to a cocktail party and saw a few more people that I hadn't seen.I, also, got to visit with my good friend Patty at this event. Patty and I have been friends since we were seven years old. It was wonderful seeing all of my classmates. I really can't wait for our next reunion.
While in Kentucky, Tim, Aiden, and I were also able to spend sometime with my family and I have added a few of these pics too. My wonderful mommy will be turning 80 this month and I think that she definitely doesn't look it!
Tim and I had lunch with two of my good friends that I used to teach with in Kentucky on Sunday afternoon. It is always great visiting with Dianna and Cheryl. On Monday we flew back to Florida but it was a great visit.
I also have a stitching finish! I finished Blackbird's Loose Feathers number 1: Spring's promise. It is worked on a light green fabric. The pattern called for a black fabric but I thought what I chose looked more springy. I will take it to the framer's next weekend. Thanks for following me and I appreciate everyone's wonderful comments. Until next time, Happy Stitching everyone!
