Days 24 and 25 UCJC

Hi Blogger Friends.  I've been in a little stitching funk this week, so I am behind in my starts.  (Makes me irrated with myself).  I was doing so good at keeping up.  I think my mojo is coming back.  I hope so, I still have all my February starts.  Part of the problem is the starts I have left, some I'm not liking alot right now so I did change a couple of them.  I will stitch the other ones later. 

Day 24 - Happy Holidays - Ursula Michael

Day 25 - Stitches, Stars and Stripes - Blue Ribbon Designs

Tuesday SAL - Joy Tree - Ursula Michael
Thursday SAL with Ruth - Robin Hood - LHN
I started 272 Words on 1-1-12.  I decided on Jan 9 to stitch one strand a day on it.  I managed 17 days and 44 words.

 Thanks for looking.  Linda

PS Don't forget to enter my giveaway here.  I only need 2 more followers for a second lapghan.

1 Year Blogoversary Giveaway

Hi Blogger Friends.  I started blogging on Jan 2, 2011.  I would like to have a giveaway.  I feel my stitching is okay, but I don't know how to do any of  the different finishings I see in blogland.  I am a very proficient crocheter and would like to crochet a lapghan for a lucky winner.  Here are the rules:

1.  You must be a follower of my blog. (old or new).

2.  Leave a comment on this post only and tell me your favorite color(s).

3.  If you post about it on your blog with a link to this post, I will give you a second entry.   Post a second comment on this post with a link to your blog.  (You don't have to have a blog to enter.)

4.  I have 144 followers right now.  If you can all help me reach 160 followers, I will pick another winner - 180 followers a third winner - 200 followers a fourth winner.  So if we can get me up to 200 followers you will have four chances to win.

5.  I will pick the winner(s) on Feb. 25.  That would have been my brother's birthday.

Here is a picture of the Lacy Granny Square that I will be making for the lapghan(s).  I will be making them with varigated yarn with coordinating solids.  The size will be 50 x 50.
I started making these squares in 1986 and have made over 3,000 of them.  Needless to say, they are my favorite squares to make.  I have made over 50 afghans with this pattern as gifts and I have also sold about 50.

Good luck everybody.     Linda

PS  I passed up my one year blogoversary.  It was Jan 2.  I feel that my stitching is ok but I don't know how to do any of the wonderful finishes I see in blogland.  I am a very proficient crocheter.  I am thinking of having a giveway and I will crochet a lapghan/afghan for someone.   Would anybody be interested?  I'm only getting opinions now, this is not the giveaway.
