Well, it was bound to happen. Someone found out I've been having too much fun (e.g. stitching) and pressed the "Work" button so all of a sudden this past week I've been barely keeping my head above water. I'm ok - it's just like having had a relaxing vacation then returning to work trying to catch up. So, very little stitching this past week so I won't bother to show anything. However, keep reading because something good is coming.
First off, the winner of my Blogoversary giveaway is Lois - Congratulations! Lois has just finished a really cute Chartmaker design so go check out her blog. She always has lovely things to show.
Now, since you were all so very kind with your comments on my blogoversary post, I thought I should have another giveaway. (Also because I have nothing stitchy to show at the moment!)
This is Mary's Best Handework, which I finished stitching in August. You can see it here. The giveaway will contain my chart and I will include a piece of HDF 35 count linen.
If you are interested in the giveaway, please leave a comment specifically saying you want a chance to win it. Please be sure I can contact you via email.
If you are not interested in the giveaway, you can leave me a comment too! I would love to know what October is like in your part of the world. Also, have you seen any new releases that you really must have?
For me, I've mentioned a couple of designs in my previous posts (Boris & Jane Tindall). This past week I've also seen some really cute new charts by Chessie & Me. Theresa of Shakespeare's Peddler has all three in her Basket so if you scroll down you can see them - so cute! I haven't bought them yet but I'm sure I will!
September closed with fine weather (cool mornings and evenings, t-shirt weather during the day) which is continuing through the weekend. This means I will have to get out to the garden tomorrow to do clean-up and hopefully take some photos too. To tell you the truth, I've felt exhausted this week but I think some sunshine, fresh air, and physical work will do me a world of good.
I just saw this cute new freebie today at gazette94. I don't know the owner of the blog but she has some great designs on her site!
In closing I will show you a photo of my kitties. Daisy on the right is practicing her spooky Halloween cat look with her glowy eyes while Julius does what he loves to do at night, which is to crawl behind the curtains and look out the window.
Thank you for stopping by. Big hugs to you for leaving me such great, supportive comments! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
