Kimberly R. …. come on down ~ and email your snail mail information to… firstname.lastname@example.org .
After listing all the entries and new followers on a spreadsheet, I used a random number generator at Startrek.com .
Kimberly won my first ever blog giveaway which is a Cross Stitcher ~ October, 2010 magazine. Thanks to everyone that has visited, become followers and commented about my stitching.
I guess cross stitch and the internet compete for most of my time. Everything else I can do without…. housework, cooking, laundry, bathing, exercise, sleeping, eating, … well maybe not eating …I can eat and blog hop simultaneously. I wouldn’t want to shrivel up and blow away, as if there is a chance of that.
I have decided, today, that I just don’t like stitching on Lugana. I ordered 2 pieces from Joann at 123Stitch.com and thought it was somewhat like linen. It is an Evenweave fabric but definately NOT a Linen. I needed a piece of Khaki colored fabric and when I found that 28 ct. Lugana was the perfect color I needed I went with it. Ugh….. I think I need to stick with linen. This fabric is bulky and thick like Aida. BUT, for me, Lugana is hard to stitch on…..but it is the perfect color! I guess instead of saving $3.00-$4.00 ordering online, I need to get off my butt and trek over to my LNS…(I do like to support my LNS but it all the way across town and my fingers do the ordering so much easier on the net). Is that lazy or what???
As stated, I am stitching an additional set of ornaments for the Stitching Corp (photos at a later date). Tina, a fellow stitcher that I have known for many years is hosting/sponsoring/collecting pairs of ornies that she will mail to deployed US service personnel and their families. One is mailed to the service member over seas and a matching one is mailed to their family here at home. This is a project that is close to my heart since I also have a son that is in the Army and has been to the “SandBox” 4 times. Thank the Lord he missed out on deployment this year. He is just training to be a Green Beret (as if that is any safer ???!!!???) Mom is turning grey fast… But if I haven’t stated before, I am so proud of My Two Sons. You know. when they were young I thought they would someday be wearing prison stripes and I would be talking to them behind glass!!LOL!! I guess anyone that has raised teenage boys could probably say the same.
Well, enough of my mindless ramblings…My Beauty Shop Girl is on her way over to trim/color my hair..( I am lucky to have a personal beautician that does house calls).
Till next time….
The pond ... again.
