Greetings from snowy Pennsylvania. Not much. Just enough to aggravate me. Nitzy (short for Nitwit) loves it. Since all three love cardboard boxes, I open the flaps and tape them at the corners so they have a deep box to play in. Some are completely covered with large plastic bags and taped to stay dry. My deck looks like inventory day at Wal-Mart.
So here's the deal...my blogging anniversary will be February 14 and you know that means another offering. I clicked on my blog archive and went back to the very post here. One thing about that post is not true. I was ashamed to admit it in the beginning, but I DO eat treats and chocolate while stitching! I guess I've come a long way, admitting to a multitude of needlework etiquette failures through this last year. I continued reading and saw that some finishing methods changed as did my attitude about stitching properly. The only constant has been menopause, my love of samplers and santas, and I still have trouble cutting into a full yard of linen.
My side bar shows 16 giveaways in these two years, but I can't remember to always label a post and I think there were more.
This one will be for the tissue box, since I received so many nice emails and comments about it. I can always make another for myself.
It's dark brown with a tiny bit of red, some dark blue, and natural wood showing through the primitive paint finish on 1/4" wood.If you would like to enter for the drawing to be held Valentine's Day at 5pm EST, please leave your entry in the comments on THIS POST ONLY. No-reply must leave email or name and initials.
I want to sincerely thank you all for the friendship and help through blogging these last two years. I was so afraid to start, and now so glad I did. I seriously doubt that I would have started stitching again without feeling this connection to others who share their needle's work and inspire many. For us gals without a shop, your blogs are our source for new items, and old ones we've missed, ideas for finishing, along with the sharing of your tips.
So again I thank you, not only for your visits with me, but for inviting me into your stitching realm.
