Not Much Progress

Well, I haven't gotten much progress done on the stitching front. I did manage to finish the row I had been working on. I have been playing World of Warcraft and if I don't start stitching again soon my friend, Mary, is threatening an intervention. LOL

My friend and co-owner of CrossStitchAddiction cleaned out some boxes after she moved and RAKed me with a bunch of stuff!She sent me a bunch of different fabric. There's a little of everything here. Aida and even weave of all sorts of different counts.

Some really cute Halloween things. Pot holders, safety armbands and a light for trick or treating, and a printed panel from Daisy Kingdom (i think).

Little stockings for my Christmas tree.A craft idea organizer, a flower kit and a Detentions kit of a dragon sitting on top of a rock...I love dragons!

Then there is the bill organizer, a family record book, mini scrapbook, and family tree book. She had also sent me 2 UK magazines, The World of Cross Stitch and The Cross Stitcher and some freebie patterns that she printed out for me when I didn't have ink. Thank you so much Mary, I love it all!

I also received another RAK today from my friend Tara. She sent me some scrap booking stash. There is an adhesive dispenser, rhinestones, and stitches that look like nutrition labels but are for marriage and children! So cute!!! Thank you Tara!

And this is a PIF that started in Canada with SocialSue and is now in my house. It's really cute and I can't wait to start it.

My husband and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary. He gave me these beautiful Black Hills Gold earrings. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Well, that's it for this week. I didn't have much to report on with stitching, but I have been spoiled. The plant is a spider plant that I haven't killed...yet. Until next week!
