january 17 - feels like a Monday

I love having a shortened work week, but when it's Monday that we have off, my whole week feels disrupted. All day today I've been wanting to do my Monday stuff! It's been snowing off and on since yesterday, but just flurries, and nothing is sticking where we are. The weather guys are saying that that will change sometime later today or tonight. I just hope I'm home before it does...I do not do well in this weather!

I did manage to get some stitching done this weekend. I only have one piece to show today, because I didn't have time to take more pictures. This is my progress on LHN's Autumn Band Sampler. I am really loving this piece. Autumn colors are my faves anyway, and the stitching just seems to flow.

It's time for a PIF. I won this on Joyce's blog, so now it's my turn to PIF. The guidelines are that I will have to send at least 5 stitching accessories within a year to two other stitchers. These can be any combination of things, such as threads, buttons, needles, trims, whatever you choose. If you are chosen as one of the recipients, you then have to agree to PIF and offer the same on your blog. So I will leave this open until the end of the week. If you are interested, please leave a comment on this post saying that you are, and I will pick two names on Friday.

I have been having so much fun looking at all the new starts that everyone has made with their various forms of the crazy challenge. My wish list keeps getting longer and longer! And I am looking forward to watching everyone's progress.

Thanks for stopping by today to visit.
