Thanks Peggy & stitching pics & Scarlett...






I won a give away from Peggy and recieved my package in the mail Monday!! Thank you so much Peggy for the great stash and "frog" :) I've been looking for one forever and can't find one and this one is beautiful; I proudly have it displayed on the table by my stitching chair. You were so generous....

I've been stitching on two projects; I've never done this (have 2 out at the same time) but find it's sure fun; the Rose is for my mom for Mother's Day; I put her mom's initials and the year she was born on it; I really love how the Iris WDW looks on this material. And the Simple Joys is sure pretty; I love the colours in it; I'm jumping around a lot on this one; it's something I've never done either but I love seeing how the different colours look :). I ordered a pretty big order from Stitching Bits and Bobs over a week ago and called and asked her when it was going to be shipped; she said one of the patterns were on back order and it was "suppose" to be in either yesterday or today and it'd ship then; so we'll see. I love 123 Stitch; I always get my orders in 2-4 days after I place my order. Patience isn't my strongest virtue. LOL

I've just been spending time w/Ash & Torry & Scarlett; he leaves for Germany on Saturday; they (Army) won't let the girls go until he gets housing which could take up to 3 months. I don't mind; I love having them here a little longer. They bought their first new car while he's been home; a 2010 Kia Forte; it's a very nice car and I'm going to be buying a new car this next month and am seriously thinking of buying one of them. Only I want the dark charcoal grey colour; they have it in white; I have a white chevy Malibu and don't want another white car. Thank you again Peggy; I just love the stash; I don't have any of the charts you sent and love the threads and these are my first "hat pins" :) I'm getting close to 100 followers and when I get there I'm going to have another give away!! Take care...

Shar, what a wonderful prize you received! Mmmmm...

I would keep those girls with you as long as I could too. I know how you enjoy them, especially that precious Scarlett.

The two pieces you're working on are just beautiful! You do such nice work! I'm anxious to start a BBD SAL with you - any time. Let me know...

Sorry about your order with SB&B. I warned you, didn't I? She's never been fast about shipping for me. Makes me wanna keep buying here in town, but they have to order for me too, and it sometimes is slow to come in. Maybe I'll try 123 Stitch.
