Snowy morning and a giveaway

Here is what we woke up to this morning!!!! This is the view out to our backyard. As of 11:30 this morning, when I took this picture we have received about 6 inches of snow. It really looks pretty, but just makes me want to stay in and just stitch.


My 3rd year blogoversary was on November 6. I wanted to have a giveaway but I was out of town at the time. So I am going to have a drawing now for this stitching pouch I made. It is made out of Blackbird design fabric from their Beach House collection. Leave a comment on this post and I will enter you in the drawing. I will draw a name next Saturday, November 20. Good luck:)


I received these wonderful knitted dishcloths yesterday from Pam, a stitcher that Cathy B and I met at the Silver Needle retreat back in July. Pam is from Iowa and she and her sister Cheryl came up here to the cities to go to Stitchville our LNS for her birthday. So Cathy and I had lunch with them and then did some shopping at Stitchville and the went to The General Store which is quite a gift shop. We had a great time. Thank you again Pam for the gift and I hope you have a Happy Birthday.

I have been doing a lot of stitching and finishing and I will be posting about that is the next couple of days. Have a great weekend and stay warm.

Don't forget to enter my drawing.

lol My husband walked out side and said "It's chilly out here."

It's currently 54 degrees here in Houston.

Stay warm & safely off the roads! Everyone losses their minds that first snow, it's like they've never seen it before every single year.

Hello Joan, I have just bookmarked your blog and become a follower because I do not want to miss anything! I feel a little uncomfortable entering your giveaway as I have only just found you. Just wanted to introduce myself ,pop over to me and say Hi , but leave the snow at your place as although it looks so lovely we do not get much here in the Uk where I live.
