Well, it's the New Year and I'm in need of some purging, and totally revamping my life. Well, baby steps anyway. I've decided I am going to scrap this blog and start fresh. Have any of you done this before? It's not that I really want to forget or get rid of my accomplishments over this past year of blogging, but I NEED A CHANGE. I'm even thinking of cutting my!!! This blog has been dedicated to my love of cross stitch, but I love many more things and that will be the focus of my NEW BLOG. I haven't been one to delve to deeply into my life, my family or my home, that will change too in the NEW BLOG.

Well, I'm not going to ramble on much more, so if you wish to join my on my new journey, please visit me HERE.

Signing off,

What a Great Day

This is how my morning started....Pilsbury and a coffee. Yum. I usually don't go for sweets in the morning, but it was just so easy.
This afternoon, the postman brought me not one, not two, but three parcels. Can you just imagine my excitement!!!
First up, my purchase from Victorian Sampler Motto. 4 yummy autumn hand dyed cottons. 20 yards each!!! You have to try these.

My win from Jennifer from Confessions a Serial Starter. She purchased two of these charts and I won one!!! Lucky me!!! It is charted for one color of your choice, but Jennifer has found one with several colors that gives me some inspiration.
Thank you so much Jennifer, this is one that I will stitch. I love it, and the floss is to dye for. HEE HEE.

I received my order from ABC Stitch. I won a $100 gift certificate from Natalie from A Stitch in Time. I am so excited, I am still waiting on a couple of threads and a chart, but this is just amazing. Thank you so much Natalie. I picked up this cute chart of birds that I decided to brighten up a bit. I will use this turquoise fabric and brighten up the threads for the birds. I just thought these little birds were so interesting. The threads are over-dyeds from Carries Creations. I hadn't tried her threads yet, and they were very economical.
Well, as you can see I had a wonderful afternoon, fondling my new stash, the only problem is I just don't have any time to put needle to thread until after this semester ends.
Soon, very soon....
Thanks for stopping by,

FCJC~A Challenge!!!!

Well, I'm on board with Jayne and decided to join her little (or big) SAL for the new year...

This seems a little more doable than that other Challenge out in blogland that asks you to pick 15 new projects and start them in January to try to finish for the year. I do that anyway with out it being a challenge.
Don't know if I'll finish 15 next year, but I am willing to give this one a try.
No stitching to show, far too busy to stitch. I will have to wait for the new year to pick up a needle again.
Happy Stitching,

I Won!!!

I won the First Runner Up Prize on Dixie Samplar Designs Blog!!! If this was the first runner up prize, I can't imagine what the Grand Prize winner won. This was just too generous. The small box was so heavy when I picked it up, and to my surprise there was a horde of amazing items inside. First of all I just have to thank Terri so much, I don't think I deserve even half of it. There are some great fabrics and some yummy threads, a pile of fantastic charts. I can see myself stitching most of them. A cute little handmade fall ornament or scissor fob. (It is already on my scissors), some Halloween goodies, Candy that is already in my tummy (never made it to the picture), and other little items.
Thanks to Terri again,
Please sign up for my Thanksgiveaway if you already haven't, it will be my turn soon to make someone's day.
