Stitching finish & TV chatting

I finished stitching this Vermillion Stitchery October Tabby Angel Cat for Q4OC. I'm happy with the end result, but the quarter stitches were a nightmare on the 14ct aida.

Happy Days that TV shows are airing NEW episodes again. Of course, it will probably be only for a few weeks and then the reruns will return. What ever happened to the good old days of a full season of shows and reruns were only in the summer? Now the actors get paid just as much (& even more) for doing much less work.

I'm happy that Dancing With The Stars is back again. I just love that show. Not sure who I want to win yet. Will have to see more dancing by all the stars. I was so pleasantly surprised with Kelly Osborne's dancing. I think she'll go far in the competition.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for visiting and for comments you leave. I do truly appreciate ALL your feedback.

Giveaway, another ornament, another prize & 1st stitching scrapbook page

I'm finally getting my blogversary giveaway posted here.  In August, I celebrated my 4th year of having this blog.  Time flies when you're chatting away.  lol  Anyway, I've been racking my brain trying to come up with something worthy of a giveaway.  I've decided to "borrow" a giveaway idea from Barb's Stitches

I will give a $20 gift certificate from 123 Stitch to the winner.  Just post a message here on this post only to be entered into the drawing.  I will choose a name from all the entries on Sept 13th (my birthday).  EDIT: If you don't have a blog for me to reach you, please leave your email address so I can reach you should you win.

I completed a 4th ornament for Q4OC.  This Santa is a Sam Hawkins design from his book "520 Christmas Cross-Stitch Designs."
I received a prize from Christine at SanManville of these wonderful charms.
I finally did begin the first page of my stitching scrapbook.  It still needs more embellishments, but I'm happy with my start.
I scanned the pic, so it didn't show the full 12" x 12" page.  Once I finish, I'll take a pic with my camera.  This SanMan Original piece (a freebie for members only) was what I originally put inside a tuck, but since I goofed and cut it too small so it wouldn't slide around, I decided to use it for my 1st scrapbook page.
That's all for now.  Thanks for visiting and good luck to everyone for the blogversary giveaway.
