Some good news and a Trims/Embellishment Giveaway!!

Let's get straight to the more exciting news I have to offer-my Trims and Embellishment Giveaway, to celebrate my b-day on the 29th and my gallbladder surgery on the 27th! The insurance company couldn't argue with the test results! I have more 'stuff' on order coming for this giveaway, but here's what I have now
On order are undyed chenille trim to try your hand at dyeing and pastel dyed ric rac, mother-of-pearl buttons, and a special surprise! I may have to go back and order me a special surprise too! I just hope it all gets here in time! What are the particulars for your chance to win you ask? None! Just leave a comment. That's fine and great if you want to follow, and fine and great if you don't. You have 'til the 30th to comment. On the 31st, my daughter will pull a name out of the hat and I'll announce the winner the next morning here since I'll be home recuperating. Who knows, I may surprise someone else with a second place draw for a smaller bunch of goodies!

I survived the CJC 2012 Challenge and took a week to stitch more on Tweet from the 2010 JCS ornament magazine

Here's what it looked like before
Yes, a pitiful start but it's coming right along. I stitched almost all day Sunday. Today, in keeping with my plan to stitch on a new Crazy every week, I've picked up Stars and Angels from JCS ornaments 2011

I'll stitch on this for the week.

I got me some stash too!

I've been admiring Zippity Doo Da for awhile after seeing some finishes of it. Any of you stitched it on a different fabric? I'm not too crazy about the Tin Roof WDW linen used. I'm envisioning it on Days Gone By linen used for Tweet above! And of course I'm getting a nice collection of PSS going. All the threads are for a couple of my Crazies.

Well that's it folks! I have to go pick up my daughter. A huge WELCOME to all the new followers! It's so exciting to see all of you; the more the merrier! Have a wonderful week!
