2011 Stitching and a Giveaway

Happy 2011 to everyone!  I cannot believe it’s a new year already.  The week between Christmas and the 1st went by way too fast for me.  I thoroughly enjoyed my staycation. 

I cooked; cleaned; rearranged (can’t find anything in my dressing area right now); filled a 36 gallon trash bag full of clothing from M and I (I have 10 empty hangers!) and tupperware for Goodwill; shampooed M’s office and the living room; got my nails done twice; played with the puppies; watched a whole bunch of football; cleared my DVR; watched a man cut a 18×6″ hole in the ceiling of my kitchen (which now has a beautiful orange “homer” bucket sitting under it); cleaned up THAT mess; and stitched, stitched, stitched. 

Notice anything missing?  I didn’t pick up my Kindle a single time!  Didn’t even think about it and because of that I am thisclose to finishing the stitching portion of Summer Queen. 

I finalized my 2011 Challenge list (see the tab up top).  It’s a mix of the different challenges that are going on in the blogosphere, i.e. new starts, UFOs, ornaments, etc.

M is reconfiguring the hard drive on my CPU. I cannot wait! I also have a notebook and have used it exclusively while on vacation. He also bought me an external hard drive so I’m working a little at a time moving photos around and trying to get ready to ‘updo’ my webpage.

It’s pouring here again today. We did a bit of driving around over the weekend looking some of the flood damage from the past weeks’ storms. As much debris as we’ve seen one week later we cannot imagine what some of those same places looked like while covered with running water. We are expecting more rain through tomorrow and maybe again on Friday. Nothing can be done about our roof (or the hole in our ceiling) until the rain goes away for an extended period of time and our attic can dry out. Sigh.

Now to the giveaway.  Back when Carriage House Samplings announced they were shutting down forever and ever and ever (yeah, right 🙄 ) I went on the search for several patterns.  One of the places I ordered from took forever to even acknowledge my order and when they didn’t get back to me after I followed up with an email I placed another order at another online place that immediately shipped to me.  Of course the first place mailed out to me almost on the same exact day I placed the second order so now I have two copies of this:

If you’re interested, leave a comment. I’ll do a random drawing on Sunday.

393 days until retirement!

    Hi Terri,
    It sounds like you are starting off 2011 to a great start! 🙂 Congratulations on the upcoming retirement. Please enter me into your CHS drawing.
    Take care,

  2. I finished off the x’s on Sunday and will finish backstitching tonight on my SQ. Hopefully we can both be dancing this weekend!

    I’d love a chance at the chart… such a beauty.

    • Woohoo on your SQ! I didn’t get any stitching done last night because I was working on my webpage. I haven’t done any of the beading and I have a ‘needlepoint’ stitchy class on Saturday so I doubt I’ll have a happy dance this weekend, but it won’t be long!

  3. Sod’s law strikes again!

    I would be quite happy to give your spare a new home and promise to pass it on if I’m lucky enough to have it come stay with me for a while

  4. Oooh, I love this chart! Please throw my name in the hat, too. 🙂

    Looking forward to progress pics of your 2011 goals. Well, maybe not the ornaments as I suppose they are intended to be surprises, but aside from those. 😉

  7. Can’t wait to see progress pics on your 2011 Challenge pieces…we all love to see pics, don’t we???? 🙂
    Would you please throw my name in for the draw?
    Thank you,
