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

Finally!! An Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  Sorry I haven't been around.  I've had a bad few weeks health wise.  Three weeks ago, I had an infection in my leg - 10 days of antibotics - 5 days later an infection in my arm - on day 8 of antibotics.  My hands got really bad with the welts/blisters - spent 5 days in bed and was able to start stitching again this past Tuesday.  (All is much better now)  I only worked on two pieces.  They are both so much fun to stitch that I don't want to stop.  Here are the updates:

Lady Liberty - Diane Arthurs

SnowPals - Diane Arthurs

Thanks for looking.   Linda

I'm a Winner - SAL Updates - Stash - Crochet Tester

EDIT:  The Disney kit I bought is Cinderella's Castle - not Sleeping Beauty.

Hi Blogger Friends.  WARNING - Long Post
  Thank you for all of the great comments.  I so enjoy reading them.   First up - SAL updates:

Halloween House - Ursula Michael - I did all the fill in around the witch and worked on the step.  (oops! forgot to fininsh above the door)

The Old West - LHN - I finished the window frames and one strand of the border.

Snow Pals - Diane Arthurs - I finished the hat and mittens and some of the white on the little girl.

Lady Liberty - Diane Arthurs - Worked on the kitty and basket.

April - Prairie Schooler - Worked on the rabbits.

I bought the most expensive kit ever - for me.  I ordered it from WDW in Florida.  Cinderella's Castle - How excited am I!!  It's on 14ct aida.

The Lion King - Thomas Kinkade (Candamar Kit)
I have been reading blogs for several years and entering giveaways, etc and have never won.  UNTIL the last several months.  I finally won.
I won this awesome magazine from Sharon at Shebafudge.

I won these great knitted slippers from Sharon at Sharon's Eclectic Retreat.

I won this great floss just because.  Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe randomly picks someone to receive some floss AND it was my lucky day.  She is having some giveaways now, so click on the link and sign up.

I also won two more giveaways that I will post when I receive them.

Wow! Are you tired yet?  lol    One other thing I'm excited about.  I read several blogs that do model stitching for designers.  I would not do that (I have too much speciality fibers flying around and I can't stitch on the higher count fabric).  However, I also love to crochet.  I signed up to be a pattern tester and tested my first square.
Purple Snowflake Juice
This was designed by Donna of SmoothFox Crochet and Knit.  She has free designs and also sells designs at her Etsy Shop.
This is Donna's design - 24 Point Round Ripple - This won first place at the county fair in 2011.    

Holy Cow!!  I think I ran out.  Hope you all made it to the end.

Thanks for looking.  Linda
