As the holiday approaches, I want to wish all my online and offline friends a very Merry Christmas. I know for some of you, this will be a very difficult holiday. I'm sending warm thoughts your way.
Our instructor said he'd mail us the grades for the presentation/paper, the final exam grade, and our grade for class if we gave him a stamped self-addressed envelope.
I received an excited email from one of my group partners telling me what he got for the presentation grade. I wanted to leave work right then and there so I could go to the PO to see if my envelope was there.
Sure 'nuf, it was!
I got a 98/100 on my presentation & paper!! Overall, for the class, I got an A. Woo Hoo!!
Cat from Kittycat Cross Stitch is hosting a Christmas giveaway. If you're curious as to what the prizes are, give her a visit.
Nataly at New England Stitchers Retreat is also hosting a nice giveway that will end soon. So hurry!
Carolyn at Taking One Stitch at a Time is hosting a Christmas giveaway, too. Hop on over to her blog and check out her latest stitching as well.
Imagine my surprise when I opened a package from Canada and it contained the chart for this:
It's a good thing Donna put a note in with it because I don't even remember entering the contest on the Stitcher's Circle group. The chart came with the charms and is by one of my favorite designers, Lorri Birmingham. Thank you, Donna!
A while back, someone asked how large TMQ is. I finally got around to measuring it. It's 41 x 67" -- the largest project I've ever done. I finished most of the floral border, the branch on the right side, the pine trees on the left side, and the quilt designs between the cabins. It won't be long now!
Lastly, a bit of humor....
Kristin can probably relate to this since her family has two kitty cats.
