Mary's Sampler, etc.

Here's another Giveaway hint-The tree is a Christmas tree!

I know, I know-pictures of Mary's Sampler are popping up all over! Here's another for ya!

You know, I pull the curtains to get some light in to take pictures and this is all I can get! I have a frame that would fit on this nicely but also on another finished stitching. This sampler deserves framing, not being made into a pillow. I'm glad I stitched this. I don't have enough stitched Christmas things.

I was on a movie kick this past weekend. Daughter was visiting a friend home from college back east so I was alone, me and the cats. I watched the Harry Potter movies, a Scooby Doo dvd, Disney's version of A Christmas Carol with the voice of Jim Carrey (Carrey is okay when taken in small doses!), some Netflix shows. All the while stitching on the gifts and Mary's.

Giveaway revision! I'm adding things that I didn't put down on the Official Giveaway post, which is the one right before this one. So be sure to comment and leave your guess on the last post. The last day to comment will be December 8, instead of the 14th. And the biggie- who gets what. Like I said the last post, if the drawn name also guessed right on the chart and designer, they will get the goodies AND the little gift. If the drawn name didn't guess right, they will get just the goodies. But-whoever guessed the correct chart and designer but whose name wasn't picked, you'll get the little gift plus some extras. It was these last two provisions that I left out. Whew! The last thing I want to do is confuse anyone! So it's going to be like 2 giveaways. I plan on stitching much more little gifts, so I just may do some random draws from anyone who comments. All you lurkers out there, leave a comment! After all, I have a pound of Balsam needles and that's a lot, I'm telling you!

I'm definitely in Christmas mode!

So, leave your comment and your guess on the last post before 10 pm West Coast time. Yes, I'm in Arizona but my daughter and I will be in Vegas from the 7th to the 9th, so I'll draw a name while I'm in Vegas!

It's been awhile since we've been anywhere so we're looking forward to our road trip.

Thanks for coming by, as always!
