Winner! WIP progress and more

Hi all! Coming to you from a chilly snow-on-the-mountains-around-us-but-none-down-here kind of day. I thought I would make this post before I go to work.

I drew names of all you contestants, linen and Aida stitchers, together and a linen stitcher was picked and she is.....

            CRICKET-BUG! I will email you for your mailing address. As soon as I get the rest of the
               goodies in the mail, I'll ship it off to you.

And then I drew names between the Aida stitchers and the name drawn for the LK chart and Aida fabric is.........
            CJ! I will be emailing you soon for your mailing address. Since it's just the chart and fabric,
               I have it already and will get it in the mail this week.

Thanks ladies, for taking part in my giveaway! 

I've been toiling away at a WIP, Little Lamb by Kathy is before...

And now..

A good amount of progress, I think. Santa is awaiting reins to all three animals but I'll do that at the end. I'm having fun stitching the house. Sorry for the blurry picture. I try holding my breath to take a picture and sometimes it works, sometimes not! It's not a huge design. The width is what you see there. I hope to have this finished by Christmas but we'll see because there is a forest and two or three more deer. I have one deer partially stitched next to the house.

Two or three posts ago I mentioned a Kickstarter campaign by Ship's Manor that I took part in? Well, I received my package! I love all that he sent, take a look..
On the left is the fabric I chose, a 32ct fat quarter of this beautiful orangey, perfect for Halloween color. On the right is backing fabric, dyed also, and a skein of his silk and a cotton floss. Yummy. His fabrics are beautiful.

I have stash also, again! Everytime I look at this chart, I smile!
Aren't they cute! I saw this and had to have it.

Last but not least is this, the Christmas issue of..

They really outdid themselves on this issue, IMHO. Here are a few cross stitch designs that caught my eye..

Soo pretty! I've been itching for a new start so one of these might be it.

Alrighty! That will be it. Congrats to Cricket-bug and CJ! Thanks to you all for playing along.

Take care and stitch, stitch, stitch!
