and I slept so good last nite that I got up and went crazy getting things done around here before my weekly visit to my LNS.
First up I've started a new cowl and I'm using a Classic Elite yarn called Avenue and it's turning out really nice. This is what I have finished so far:
and this is what the pattern looks like finished:
I also want to sell my scissors that I've collected over the years. If anyone has a good way for me to do this, please let me know. I really don't know if I should sell them separately or as a set. HELP!
Then of course while I was at Needle Orts I just had to purchase a few things. This first pattern I saw last nite and I wrote myself a note to remind me to have Debbie order it for me. Low and behold she already had it.
Which Witch by La D Da
A new Jardin Prive pattern
and a sweet autumn design by Erica Michaels.
Then I saw this tin sitting near the register and it's a needle case by Just Nan and it's got the cutest owl on the lid. Inside there's a very small magnet to keep your needles safe.
I made some head way on Olga today and hope to have her finished this weekend.
Here's the good news. In celebration of the good news we received the other day, I'm having a giveaway of the pattern "Olga" and a tart tin for you to mount the finished design in. I will even include the DMC floss. Now you must stitch this design on 36ct. linen or 18ct. aida for it to fit in the tart tin properly.

And let's keep this within the U.S. only.
Vallie will attempt to pick a name this Sunday evening. Sometimes she just doesn't cooperate.
That's it for today. You're probably tired of reading and looking at pictures by now.
Please think of some way I can sell my scissors and don't forget to enter the giveaway.
