A new start and a winner ...

I'd like to introduce you all to Tuesday's new rotation design ... Sampler Sisters of the Thread by Primitive Needle. I'm using the recommended fabric (Picture This Plus Mello) but I'm stitching it on 36 ct instead of 40 ct, 1 over 2 and a combination of GAST and WDW threads. I'm soooooo in love with this design. The Mello fabric is lovely to stitch on and the colors of the threads are just so nice and calming. Karen and I are doing an SAL on Tuesday nights ... want to join us?? You'll love the design!

My giveaway for Autumn Song was supposed to be on Tuesday but I forgot! So I came home from work today and listed out everyone that had posted that they wanted in on the giveaway, then into my wide mouth coffee cup they went ...
when Terry got home I asked him to pick a name out of the coffee cup ...
and the winner is ... April ... it's really hard to read her name on the paper ... I didn't write the names dark enough for my camera ... Congrats April! I'll be emailing you this evening. Thanks everyone for entering my giveaway ... it was fun!
In between my stitching rotation, I get some exchange stitching done too *smile* I stitched this Lizzie*Kate design for Karen (for the Lizzie*Kate Exchange Blog) and finished it into a pinkeep. I'm really glad you liked it Karen! shhhhhh I wasn't supposed to include any extras, but I couldn't resist making a scissor fob for Karen, especially after I found the perfect charm for it.

I'll leave you with a couple more pictures from Mother's Day ... here one of my favorites ... me and my boys ...
and here's all of us ... on the rocks ...


I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for Thursday ...

Congratulations on the finish! I love your exchange piece and the beading, too. Great start on SSotT! I have that piece all kitted and ready to go. Gulp.

Glad you're enjoying your new start! I'll look forward to watching you stitch this. The Laugh pinkeep is very pretty, and what a beautiful fob to go with it.

Love the pictures of you and your boys! Beautiful scenery!

The colors do look lovely on that fabric, and Laugh turned out wonderfully. Nice progress on your earlier post of Peppermint. Another blogger just finished that one, I'm thinking I really need to go dig it out of my stash and start.
