Finish #4 and TUSAL Update #5

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all for the well wishes.  My hands have finally healed and the infections are cleared up.  I sure hope thats it for the year.

I finished number 4 which was a SAL with Debbie.        
Snow Pals - Diane Arthurs
14 ct  Light Blue Aida
Started 1-2-12
Finished 5-26-12
I won this giveaway from Thoeria at My Little Corner of Cyberspace
Look at that floss. It is 100% Cotton and Hand-Dyed in South Africa from House of Embroidery.  The colors are just gorgeous.

I won this giveaway from Tricia at  Tricia's Craft Box.
Three beautiful knitted dishclothes.  Gorgeous yarn.  And the cutest hand made card I have ever seen.   I love it all.  I have been one lucky lady this past month.  Thank you all for the lovely giveaway wins.


Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe sent me 18 skeins of her hand dyed floss "Just Because".  She is such a kind and sharing person.  Go check out her site.  The colors are just lucious.

Here is my TUSAL Update a little late.

Remember, I said I was going to start at least 100 pictures this year!!!!  I'm not doing good.  I am only on #63.  So I have decided I need to start at least one a week and work on one already started on non SAL days.  The Random Number Thingy picked Seasonal Cat Welcome to work on and Mitten Friends by Diane Arthurs to start.  I WILL be working on those this coming week.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

I'm glad you're feeling better. Congrats on winning those giveaways! Beautiful finish! Your ORT looks great too!

"Only" 63? I'd say that's a huge accomplishment!

I love your finish. I think I am going to have to look into some Diane Arthur patterns, as I loved both yours and Debbie's.

When I have time, I'm going to check out all of your WIPocalypse starts. I think it's truly amazing, but I would find it a little overwhelming!
