Winner Winner!

I had Weezi pick a winner today. It took a few tosses to get him to pick one and bring it back to me (he likes to fetch!) but he did it! Grats Sarah, you can email me your snail mail and I'll get that out to you ASAP (before you decide to move somewhere else!). My email should be active on blogger, but if not just leave a message here and I'll get back to you. :)

Took me forever to get him to look at the camera (aka my hand with treats in it!)

What I kept!

Here are the few things I kept from the For the Gatos pack, and even then I'm not sure I'll ever get around to making them lol. They might be in the next giveaway. :)

From Ink Circles:

 I like the little ones in this, of course the cats.

The last bit is fabric from Picture this Plus I believe? But I don't know the count. The colour is a nice blue. It's enough for a small project. I was also sent a bunch of buttons and beads, plus a couple Crescent Colours that are limited edition. There was a bat button in there that has given me an idea to use it on a halloween design for a friend of mine. She loves halloween so much!

Tonight I'm hoping to get an hour of stitching in at Milsean Cafe between clients. I don't know what project to take along with me. I have a choice between Summer Spendor or Follow Me.

I didn't get much done last night at my 4 hour visit :( Their little dog is really old and confused which lead to a lot of whining. I felt bad for her and there was no consoling her. by the time she fell asleep there was really no time left to do anything as the lighting was bad at that point. I got her dress filled it at least.

I'll do my winner winner chicken dinner draw soon. I'm going to write names down on little papers and let my cats decide. :D My cats DO take bribes, FYI. :)

It arrived!

My bad taste in patterns is your good fortune! I have a few things from the package to give away and it's open to you, my friends. All like, 7 of you who comment on my posts that I rarely post and how I rarely comment on your stuff even though I read everything because I am lame like that... whew.

Now that I got that out of my system, on with the giveaway!

This has all the Crescent Colours with it! Not my style and I don't bake, unless you count gluten free cakes from a BOX as baking. That's about the extent of my baking these days, and it's not even for myself, I help a client of mine bake cakes lol.

This BBD is apparently OOP, so here is your chance to win it and eBay it!
I already have this needleminder (and really. how could I call myself a Crazy Cat Lady if I didn't.) so this is up for you guys as well in the giveaway. Stop using your real cats to hold your needles and let this one do it for you! Less vet bills that way.

On with the fine print: ALL of this can be yours! I'll mail anywhere in the world, but keep in mind I'm a complete and utter failure when it comes to actually leaving the house with the package to mail on the same day. I either have the package and don't want to go out, or I go out and forget the package. It will be sent, just.. might take me a week or so when the stars align and the planets are in sync.

Have a great Caturday!

Diablo 3 has launched and I have been doing nothing but playing that hahaha. Stitching is sort of out of the hobby list right now for the most part :)

I *am* still working on Nora Corbett's Letter S on Saturday nights with my 4 hour client, so this is how far I've come on that.

I tackled part of the dress, the arms, head, and legs tonight, as well as some of the letter S. I know I grumbled a bit about the chart being entirely too big, but it really helped on the legs and arms to see all the quarter stitches. Not a fan of those :)

All my goals have flown out the window, and I won't be as prolific until I've got Diablo out of my system. I will still be having a small giveaway hopefully soon. The For the Gatos package hasn't arrived yet. Waiting on that. Take care everyone!

Hallo 2017!

I have a finish for this year! This project I only work on at work, when the client doesn't mind and I have the time. Usually during...
