Start #32

Hi Blogger Friends.  I haven't been doing much stitching the last couple weeks.  Right now I'm obsessed at working jigsaw puzzles.  The weather was so nice this past week that I sat outside all afternoon and worked on them.  I even manged to get a sunburn on the top of my foot.  Its raining today and suppose to for the next 5 days so I should get some stitching done.

Start 32 - Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - did more backstitch on the basket

Stable - backstitched the girl and the flowers above the dog house

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.


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

Here are the rules:
1.  Be a follower of my blog.
2.  The contest part - tell me how many WIP's/UFO's I have started.
3.  Leave a comment on this post only.
4.  Would appreciate if you mentioned it on your blog, but you don't have to.
5.  I will close it on February 15th and pick the winner on the 16th.
6.  If no one guesses correctly, I will pick the one that comes closet.  If more than one person guesses right, I  will draw a name.

Gee, I guess I should mention the prize.  A $20.00 gift certificate to 123 Stitch.

Thanks for looking and have fun.   Linda
