A Tiny Happy Dance

I finished stitching the "Jesus: Author of Faith" ornament I'd started last fall. Until a few days ago, it had been a UFO (unfinished object). Now I just need to press it and sew it into an ornament. The fabric is plain white 14 count Aida, which I'm trying to use up.

The design is from the Cross Country Stitching Magazine, Dec. 1992. Here is the list of DMC colors used.

Since I've gotten used to stitching over 2, I prefer linen or evenweave fabrics to the Aida. I think that's what took me so long to pick this one back up.

Harry Potter Freebie!

This past weekend, we visited my aunt & uncle, who live on the lake at Pickwick Lake. DS/10 was given the latest Harry Potter book by his Aunt Linda. Boy, did she score some serious points! He was very excited. (He is on book #4 right now.) We all enjoyed the time spent with family. It was nice to just relax.

Here's a freebie, Hedwig's Four Patch, for all you Harry Potter fans. If I decide to stitch this, I'll change the owl to white, as some other stitchers have done. The gallery of this design is here. Check out the designer's site, The Sampler Girl.

I'm almost finished with a UFO that had put aside for quite some time. I'll share it as soon as I finish the backstitching.

I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for my Arcchivo that is on it's way. I can't wait to use it!!

I won an Arccivo!!!!!

(photo credit to: Donna Downey)

I am so excited a won an Arccivo!!! All you scrapbookers will love this new product! For months, my homepage has been Donna Downey's blog, Simply Me, because it's so inspiring. She is still giving away 1 Arccivo a day to the 14th commenter, so check it out. She also has a video of it on her blog that explains how to use it. What's even more cool, she is appearing on QVC on my birthday, Aug. 14th, 9pm-12am EST, to demo and sell them. If you don't win one, you can still buy one on QVC below retail!!

I don't know what color I'll be getting yet, but I'll post a photo of it when it arrives.
