A Pretty Sparklie From Karin :-)

I stuck to my rotation and worked on Bordeaux Sampler again for a bit tonight. Part 4 is taking some shape now with two boxers and a basket... with some little over one grapes! Wow, this sampler has a lot of over one stitching!


Here it is - the really pretty sparklie that Karin sent to me :-) I somehow won this from her by leaving a comment in her blog recently. That blindsided me, as I never seem to win things, and am totally OK with that lot in life. This was a bit out of the ordinary for me - thank you so much Karin! Karin says I can use this as I please. I am thinking of adding it to one of my stitching tools.... not quite sure yet :-) I love it - the colors are gorgeous! Karin does great work!

Have you noticed that I've been shamefully BEHIND on reading your blog lately? My sincere apologies :)

I think your BS is coming along splendidly *and your almost caught up to Anne...have you noticed?*

That little bead is adorable! I would add it to a stitching tool too! Good thinking and lucky you!
I'm with you Carol...I'm a loser on many levels LOL!!! I crack myself up!! I'm in a weird mood today apparently :) What I meant is...I don't win either! **hehehehe**

Ooh lovely gift!

I can't believe how fast Bordeaux is coming along. It only seems like a couple of weeks ago since you started it.

What a very pretty gift! Karin makes stunning beads.

You are zipping along on Bordeaux! I love the next set of boxers.

Bordeaux is moving along quickly, I'm always amazed at how much stitching you get accomplished. The grapes in it are lovely, but I image the over 1 does get a little tiring. Very pretty gift from Karin, congratulations on winning her contest.
