Thank You

Thank you to all of you who took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday this week. Thank you to all of you who take the time to leave the wonderfully nice comments on my blog. I know how much time one can spend doing this and there are some of you who are very diligent about it.

Make A Wish
I granted Carol's wish for a Christmas ornament. She didn't want anything cutesy so I decided to unearth my Hardanger skills and made something more elegant. I was pleased with how it turned out.

Random Act of Kindness
This is something I have decided I am going to start doing. There are alot of people out there that are so helpful with sharing their tips, ideas, new findings and words of encouragement.

My first recipient of an RAK was Staci K. I have gotten alot of great things from Staci's blog, the latest being the one on how to make your own overdyed white floss using coffee. It worked great!

I sent Staci some of her favorite things and a few others. Thank you Staci!

Monthly Goals

Stitch #9 and #10 of LK Flip Its--NOT DONE
Complete pocket #6 of My Favorite Things Basket--DONE
Complete SBEBB Fall House Exchange--DONE

I thought I had my "stitching pink" items as a goal, but I guess I didn't. I did manage to get 5 complete. I am not going to stop though. There are still things I want to make. My BFF, Joan, made me this chicken for my pink basket. Isn't he cute?

November Goals:
November Bride's Tree Ornament
Christmas Ornament Exchange (Carolyn)
All Season Ornament Exchange (Gaby)
Fair Square #10
Fair Square Christmas
HoE Christmas Ornament
Private Thanksgiving Exchange
LK Flip Its (#9, 10 and 11)

Whew! I hope I remembered everything. I thought I could show another exchange that should have been received by now but it hasn't been acknowledged. Next time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
