First - welcome and thank you to my new followers! Given my sporadic and rather whiny postings recently, I am surprised that anyone is even stopping by anymore, but I do appreciate it.
Speaking of previous posts, I finally figured out that my mojo was still hanging around but it was being overpowered by my stitching ADD. Fortunately, I seem to be overcoming it, as I was able to sit and stitch for almost two hours the other day yes in a row with no interruptions! I know, for lots of you, that's nothing, but for me in the last few months it's a miracle!
Second - hop on over to the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe blog for an amazingly wonderful giveaway. I should warn you that Nancy has some beautiful fibers and trims as well as patterns. Please do not hold me responsible for any uncontrolled stashing that may take place just saying.
Now that I have said my stitching ADD is getting better, I suppose I should show you.

And finally, Blue Ribbon Designs Countdown to Christmas. It is stitched on 40-count Magnolia from Lakeside Linens with Gentle Arts Sampler Threads.
And after unfortunately I have reached the boring part on this one as all that is left on this part is stitching the grid for the calendar.
