Finish #2 - Updates - Giveaway Winner

Hi Blogger Friends.  First of all I'm a winner.  Look at  this gorgeous Random Act of Kindness that I received from Annette.  I had entered her giveaway and mentioned that I have never had a needlebook and LOOK what she made me.

The ribbon on the top has kitties on it.  She even included some pins and needles and the cute little kit and the adorable card.  Thank you Annette.  You are such a sweet friend.

I also won 7 skeins of this beautiful yarn from Kate on a giveaway she was having.  I really need to find some time to start crocheting.  Thank you Kate.


Finish #2 - Sunday SAL with Debbie and Kaye
Santa's 12 Days of Christmas
Prairie Schooler
14ct Summer Khaki
Started 11-17-13
Finished 2-12-14

Fall Welcome - almost finished her jumper and started backstitching the basket

Stable - stitched on the dog house and backstitched the flowers and basket (you can click on any pics to enlarge)


Onto the winner of my giveaway.  Thank you to all of you that entered.  Some of those guesses I liked and some were really scary.  They ranged from 52  to 342.  One person actually guessed the exact number of pieces that I have started.  I have 2 pages at the top of my blog with all of the projects plus a picture of what it will look like.

AND THE WINNER IS.........
SHEBAFUDGE

I have 168 UFO's/WIP's.  I really do want to get some finished this year because there is a whole lot more that I want to start.  I was really good with my starts after January last year, but I don't know if I can be good this year.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

What a sweet gift from Annette! Hurray for finishing Santa #5! I still have a lot to go on that one. The backstitching on the basket on Fall Welcome really makes a difference! I'm trailing behind you again on that one. I also love the bs on the flowers of the Stable. I added the pic to the SAL page on my blog.

Hurray for Sharon for guessing the exact number! I loved looking at all your WIPs on both pages. Amazing!!1

What gorgeous goodies from Annette! I was lucky enough to receive a gift from her last year with a needlebook which was just adorable and lives next to the sofa now.

Great progress on your Stable! You are so close to finishing it and it looks amazing. Santa looks really cute too.

I can't believe that I guessed the correct number! I'm flabbergasted! I took your word for it thought and didn't count all the photos (as gorgeous as they all are!)

Wow, 168 WIPs, that's truely a number! But I'm sure you love them all. I don't have that many started projects but I often fondle them and take them out of their bags in order to decide on which I want to continue the most.
