It's Been Good

 This long holiday weekend has been good!
 I've got the biggest part of the next quilt done!

I took naps!

There was knitting.....
 and a tree now resides in the living room, 

albeit undecorated.
If you're a long-time reader, you know every year I always say
I would be fine with nothing but the glow of white lights on the tree!
So calming!

The long weekend is winding down,
but it's been good!
I hope yours was good as well!

I think I'll have another slice of the
before I call it a night!

The Day After...

I'm having a little sale in my Etsy shop! 10% off any item when you use the HAPPYHOLIDAYS code at checkout!  I've got a few finished quilts, a quilt top or two, and fabrics!  

I hope everyone made it through their turkey coma and enjoyed a fabulous holiday with family and friends!  It was a great day here in South Dakota!

I'm staying in today....I don't do the crazy shopping today!
Instead I'm going to head down to the quilt den and get busy on another quilt!
And I'm going to knit.
And do other fun things besides work!!

Happy Friday!

A Good Weekend, Indeed!

The broken dishes quilt is FINALLY done! I need to give it a good press and try and get some photos in the light of day. It ended up being 96x96, so I'm pleased and am fine if I don't see a half square triangle for quite some time!

Prepping, A Potluck...and a Sampler Kit Giveaway!

I've been busily stitching away on that secret stitching project, so have not really had much to share over the past couple of weeks!  I have guilt about that!  ha!

I did share recent stash enhancement, and several asked me what I was kitting up! Well...I'm prepping!  Not the doomsday kind (ahem...I question the sanity of some people).  Nope.  I'm prepping for a New Years Start!  

The linen and most of the silks are for this!

 Charlotte Clayton!  After seeing Deb's and Cari's...and looking online and finding Nicole's...and of course, Margaret's, well, it's time I bite the bullet!  Pay no mind to the pile of January 2012 starts that have yet to be finished.  Ahem.  

Hmmm...maybe I AM a doomsday prepper, of the creative kind!  ;o)

That said, I do feel bad about my blogging absence and lack of interesting things to share with you!  So...I'm going to have a giveaway!  So at least when one visits my blog over the course of the next week or so, there's something worthwhile here!  

I'm giving away a Scarlet Letter kit!  

  Because maybe YOU need to stockpile some stitching projects as well!  

This is the Scarlet Letter sampler kit...Tablet Sampler.  Complete with 35 ct linen and DMC floss!  Opened for photographs, it's back in it's packaging and ready to head to a new stash!

If you'd like to add this one to your stash, just leave a comment here and share your favorite side dish/salad idea for Thanksgiving!  I'm wanting to expand my horizons and add a couple new things to the menu this year and would LOVE to hear what unique things you have on your Thanksgiving table!

So that's it!  Just leave a comment with your favorite side dish/salad idea, and you'll be entered.  I'll come back and draw a winner next Saturday!  Tell your friends and favorite stitchers and we'll have a big ol' cyber potluck right here on the blog!

And I go to get that secret stitching done!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I went online to JJ's Collectibles to check out their sale a couple weeks ago. Decided I would try another skein of Pebble GAST for my And They Sinned cloud. Somehow a few other things found their way in to my cart! Oops! ;o)
