Wow ~ what happened to November???  Obviously I've been slacking in the blogging department, but there's been some good things happening around here, even if I'm behind in sharing them :)

First up:  I was one of the lucky winners in Terri's Halloween giveaway.  I couldn't believe it when I opened the bulging envelope I found in my mailbox, there were so many wonderful things inside!

Things like fabric:

And charts:

And exciting goodies!  Do you see the sweet ornie Terri stitched up too?  Love it!

Thank you so much Terri, your generosity is astounding!!  And if one spectacular giveaway wasn't enough, Terri's hosting another one right now!  Hurry over! 

And now for the craft happenings :)

My mom and I had a crafting day a little while back...  which turned into a crafty weekend!  We sewed & baked & I played with yarn...  it looked a little like this:

These stockings were a long time in the finishing queue...  The "Lynn" stocking was stitched by me for my mom and actually given to her unfinished about 2 years ago for Christmas *hanging head in shame*.  It's from The Cross Stitcher magazine, not sure which year, August 07 maybe?  The other two were stitched by Mom for my girls.  Thanks for a fun weekend Mom, I can't wait to see all these beauties under the tree!  XXOO

That's it for this long overdue post. I'm going to click "publish post" now and cozy up with my stitching for my Sunday night t.v. with my girl now.

Thank you for stopping by!

Awwww love the stockings! It is the finishing that puts me off making them. Perhaps I should send one to you and your mum to finish for me lol. xx
