Blogoversary Celebration (2 days soon)

It is true what they say, time flies when you are having fun!
It's celebration time.

  I figured I had better post something today, otherwise I would be late. This has been a wonderful adventure in blog land. I have been so inspired and encourage by the fine stitchers I have met out here. One side effect to blogging though, I am reading blogs when I should be stitching, hahaha. Speaking of stitching, here are a few stitches of mine.

Got some more done on the fruit bowl on HRH.

I could not resist starting the Spanish Mystery Sampler. I am trying to make it my Sunday stitch; with the exception of today.

I've been working on French Country Baby Carriage by JDW Designs for my girl friend at work.
She is due May 31st. I have been playing in the yard so I am behind.

So, in thanks I have put a little something together for a lucky follower.
 I only do one give away a year cause it takes me that long to get my chit together. Hahaha. It includes a needle minder I put together myself. I truly enjoy the conversations that I have had the chance to have with most of you who have been following me. Thank you for sharing your projects, valuable advice and encouragement. One of the goodies is still in the making, busy and behind that seems to be my mantra lately. So it will be a sweet surprise for the lucky winner. I may be committing a blogging faux pas, but I am keeping this giveaway limited to my current followers. I want to give to those I have gotten to know over these past two years. I will announce a winner next weekend from the followers who leave a comment on this post

As always keep on stitching and hooking.
P.S. Thought I would close with a cat and hound nap.
