Blacksheep's Blogoversary Giveaway! & Stitching Finally!

One of the many blogs I read belongs to Edgar and is called Blacksheep's Bit Of The Web. It is a wonderful blog full of beautiful stitching, pictures of his local area and information about movies. His blog will soon be 3 years old and he is holding a giveaway where there will be three winners. To be entered all you have to do is leave a comment on this post (click the word post to go to the specific post on his blog).

Good luck!

Whatever the illness was that I had last week, it has come back. UGH! I feel so tired and out of it. But I finally did some stitching! I have added the C, D and E on the Quaker and plan on stitching some more after I eat. My pain is not real good today, woke up with my back screaming. It took me 15 minutes to get out of bed, but I decided that I was going to stitch anyway and use it to distract from the pain today. For the little bit of time I stitched, it did distract me from some of the pain, but not as much as I was hoping.

Ok time to go eat dinner which DH cooked (it smells fantastic), then back to stitching. I will try to get a picture and put it up later tonight or tomorrow. As well as pictures of the wonderful stash I got this week in the mail! I am so excited!

I did some more stitching this evening. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to, but I got the top row of alphabet done (A-G). As promised here is a picture:

As soon as my niece lets me go to bed, I will get some more stitching done. My niece likes to have me in the living room and for a while she was helping me stitch. She helped me with the lowercase "f", then she wanted to play with my stuff so I had to put it away. We played "duck duck goose" and "London Bridge" and showed her how to do the Hokey Pokey. She had a blast! Me, Stephanie, Kyle and Bridgette were all laughing and having fun. I stopped when my back started to scream at me, but it was worth the increased pain to just play like that. Hopefully I can go to bed soon and then I can stitch some more. The first page of this piece is so close to being finished! I am anxious to get it done. I am still really enjoying stitching this piece. I love how crisp the floss colors look against the white background. It just looks very crisp, clean, and so very pretty!

Well that's it for me! See you all later :)


  1. I am sorry to hear about your back. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Lovely stitching! Sounds like lots of family fun.

  3. Thank you Mylene and Charlene. I appreciate it. :)

    Oh yes, lots of family fun, lots of laughing; just a good time. I look forward to doing it again as soon as my back calms down a bit.

  4. That is SO pretty! Lovely progress. I like the thread colors that you're using. I hope your back is better & that you're feeling better soon.
