First Saturday of the Year

Happy Saturday!  I just had to share what's happened in the last few days.  My husbands family gets together after Christmas.  His Aunt Nina used to stitch years ago, but "just does not have time to anymore".  I know--How S A D! Good news is, while we were visiting, Aunt Nina brought out a bag of fabric that she want to give me...WOW! 

Needless to say I was excited!  Here's another photo of it spread out for you see.
Don't know how long shes had it in storage, so I still need to wash and press it all.  I just could not wait to share it with you though!

While I'm here, heres an update of my stitching progress. My full-time  j-o-b, a headache and bowl games have gotten in the way of my progress. 

Now its time I leave you and take down my Christmas decorations.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Happy Stitching   =) Pam

Welcome 2014

No, I did not fall off the face of the earth!  Just took some time off from stitching, therefore my blog didn't get updated. Sorry folks.  Well its a new year so let's see if we can't get it kicked off right!    It's a New Moon, so I'm including a pic of my ORT jar. Daffycat is hosting her Totally Useless Stitch A long  again this year. Jump over to her blog here for more info.
See there are a few tiny strands in there!

 To start off the new year I picked up  a ten year old  UFO by Gloria Pat.  You can see her back in Jan 2012 for the first time.  I've added her hair!

  Please don't give up on me. I hope to update her again soon.  Until then, happy stitching   =)  Pam
