I received the cutest PIF gift from my old friend Neila today. Gosh, I have known Neila for years, and she recently located me via my search for her in my blog - it was funny! Neila and I used to be in several round robins together years ago! She is such a doll. She made me a crafter's apron, modeled after the ones carpenters use - how cute is that??! And, some cute Halloween soap too, but it did not photograph well. Thank you so much Neila! I just love it! I sent off a PIF on Monday that I thought for sure would arrive at its destination by today. It did not have far at all to go. But, no word from the recipient, so the wait will continue...
...And this brings me to announcing a new PIF round! I signed up on Neila's blog a few weeks ago, but wanted to get at least a few of my older PIFs out the door before posting that I am taking new names! Since I received the PIF from Neila today, I better post now - LOL! So.. the first three to leave me a comment asking to sign up will receive a hand-made gift from me, sometime in the upcoming year. In return, you will need to post to your blog that you will make gifts for three other people. Sound good? Sign up! LOL
I titled my post "Time Management" because as I prepare to write up my goals for November, I am a bit overwhelmed. There is a much higher than average number of stitchers' birthdays in November, plus a larger than average number of exchanges due out between November 15 and December 1... and several early December stitchers' birthdays.... and where will Christmas stitching fit in? It probably won't! On top of that, I started Deb's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. It is going to occupy a lot of my time this month - it's adorable and is truly Deb's artistic vision, but it is also very large - there are three parts to it and it will be keeping me ultra busy. Tonight I spent a lot of time finishing off a gift for mid-November. Now I can cross it off the list! After finishing that, I stitched what I think is the "heaven" part of the round robin.... this is my little spirit or soul that Deb has asked us each to stitch in this upper section.... next I have a house and a proverb to stitch...and then it ends with having to stitch my tombstone... oh my! Stay tuned! I think I will pass on replacing And A Forest Grew this month and just keep at it with this RR since it is due to be mailed out on December 1.
Oh... and Happy Halloween!
