Winner Winner!

Thank you to all who left comments on my last blog post and a huge thanks to Adornit for offering up their selection of Chamberry prints as a great prize! I have a winner...but first a few updates! (Would you really read on if I blew the surprise right now?)

It's been busy...heck, it's always busy! Last weekend I was able to sneak away for a short time to attend my annual retreat in Gretna NE. It's not a fancy place, but when I started going 17 years ago - it was heaven on earth. Time away from all the home activities - few even had cell phones in those days. My husband always knows - the 3rd weekend in March come heck or high water, I was Gretna bound. The women that I meet up with every year are wonderful & supportive & it's been so much fun to watch our families grow through the years.

I stopped through Omaha on the way home (I did have to leave a little early this year to go watch Chris play in a tennis meet) & dropped off some models at For The Love of Stitching...an awesome little shop. Judi was my very first "auto" customer & I was happy to lend her some models for awhile. Stop in if you are in the neighborhood...she does mail order too!

I've been catching up on some finishing work & working on a few retreat pieces. Like everyone else, I'm hoping Mother Nature decides that we have had enough winter and are ready for Spring.

Here is a sneak peak of a newly completed project!

This is a current WIP! Look familiar? The bag that I have been using for a model of "Love My Stitching" was stitched by Karen (sewmuch2luv) and I think she would probably like it back! I haven't stitched on evenweave for awhile, I forgot how much fun it is! 
That's what's new with me. The winner of the Adornit fabric bundle and chartpack of Gather Friends Close is Darla! I will be emailing you for your address! Contests are fun - keep following for more!
Have a wonderful day,


  1. I am ready for spring. I am ready to get some much needed yard work done. However next week we will be in New York. My kids are ready to play in the snow. We don't get much here in Alabama.

  2. Sweet wip :)
    Happy stitching
