Stitches and Shadows

Wow! The Grow Your Blog Party was great! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left comments. It has been fun visiting your blogs and seeing everyone's creations. I am feeling so supported by my new followers that I am planning a give away for later in the month.

This was a rather slow stitching week for me. I worked all week and went out of town for the weekend. It was really cold again so I spent precious stitching time making stews and chilies to warm the soul. I did get more than half of my October block of Woodland Sampler done. Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery just keeps charming my needle. Their little critters have a way of coming to life as soon as I back stitch the eyes!

I worked so hard last weekend to finish the border on Frosted Pumpkin's Once Upon A Time. It has been killing me to not start stitching all the super cute monthly designs... Perseverance - I will finish this border this week.

My weekend had very little stitching time because I got to have a dream come true... I went to see Punxsutawney Phil! It was amazing! My dear friends took me for my Christmas gift. They even signed me up for the Groundhog Club so that I could meet Phil. He is the cutest weatherman and seems to take his job quite seriously!

I know the pic is a little fuzzy but time was precious!

This week I think I may have extra time to complete projects due to a winter storm starting tomorrow night. My goals are to finish October, finish the OUAT border and stitch January. Thank goodness Phil got me this extra time by seeing his shadow!
