What a week!

Hello everyone and I would like to say welcome to all of my new followers from the Grow Your Blog Party! 

I have really been overwhelmed by the support of everyone and it reminds me of a song we used to sing to close out every Girl Scout meeting when I was little... "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold!"  But I have enjoyed finding some great new blogs to follow and I still can't believe that now there are more than 50 people following me :)  Please send me the link to your blogs if you are a new follower and I haven't started following you yet.

If you haven't signed up for my mini giveaway you can do that here. The deadline is February 1st.

It has been a really busy week for me caring for my little girl who everyday keeps getting closer and closer to walking :)

I have been able to get a few stitches into my Carl Larsson's Letter Writing but I can't show you until the YOTA post next Saturday.

I set the goal for myself of trying to finish this design by the end of the month.  I keep going back and forth on if I will make it but now I think that I actually can do it!  I just have a bit more background to do and then just all of the backstitching but I have a few days left to do it.  I always love when you build momentum and then it helps to carry a project through to completion!

Also I was nominated for the Liebster award by Kat at Kat's Stitching and I think another new follower but I can't find the link right now (so sorry...please remind me if you nominated me).  I received this award a little while ago but it is always nice to be included and I will try to pay it forward to 11 others. But that will have to wait for a post tomorrow hopefully! If you would like to receive this award just let me know.

Happy Monday to you and Happy Crafting :)


  1. You can definitely get that finished!!!

  2. I used to have a print of this picture hanging in my room...didn't know it was available in cross stitch! It looks lovely!

  3. Nice project, with a lot of backstitches!
