Grow Your Blog - I won a Giveaway!

Through the Grow Your Blog event (Jan 25), I am now following several new blogs and entered some giveaways.  On February 15, I got an email from Lorraine at Paper Vernissage .  It seems that I had won her giveaway for 4 hand made seasonal cards.  After sending her my snail mail I received this lovely package which consisted of a lovely card from Lorraine, the 4 seasonal handmade cards, 3 rolls of paper tape, 3 square and 2 rectangle Zentangle tiles and some chocolates.  See photo below of my package from Lorraine.

Thank you so much Lorraine for the beautiful cards and extra items.

2015 Friendship Exchange

It is time for our 2nd annual Friendship Exchange at my LNS (Stitcher's Place).  There were several of us participating.  I searched the web for Friendship quotes and found about 10 that I liked.  Then I asked my husband for his opinion to help narrow it down.  We decided on this one found at .

Here is my version of the quote.

I have always used Pattern Maker Professional for Cross Stitch by HobbyWare to create/modify my cross stitch charts.  
I typed the words, then searched through several books and magazines to find the perfect picture to represent each line of the poem.  I also like to personalize it so I stitched words in the tea cups.

This is my first attempt at making a flat-fold for my partner Tammy.  The Twisted Stitcher makes it look a lot easier.

I received a beautiful pillow from my stitching friend Rita.

After I posted my snowman wisdom update I continued to stitch some of the snowflakes.  As you can see, I completed quite a few snowflakes.

Tonight is the deadline for my Friendship Exchange at Stitcher's Place.  I will post photos later.
