Stitching afternoon!



I try to organize a stitch in at my house about once every 6 weeks or so. Today's group was very small!!!! I had one person show up. But, you know what?!?!?!?!!? We had a wonderful time, stitching & catching up.
I had won a contest on the group that Debra & I are in, so she brought the prize to me, instead of mailing it. See attached picture for the wonderful gifts I received. The contest was for the person with the most finishes that weren't finished! I realized after the contest ended that we didn't have a category for most finished finishes! I have LOTS of those too!!!!
She then surprised me with a lap quilt that she made. She has been making a lot of these & I was totally surprised when she gave me one!!!! I love it!!! And it is cold enough today, that I KNOW I will be covered with it before the day is done.
I hope to post a picture soon of what I was working on while she was here. I had a visit from the frog thou & I had to take out a good portion. I guess that is what I get for stitching TOO LATE at night!!!

Sorry I missed the stitching time. I did get some errands done and got to stitch some on my own. The blanket is beautiful. Debra does a great job on those! Your prize is very nice too. Sorry you had to do some frogging. Hope to be able to come next time.
