For crying out loud! Where have I been???? Well, I have been working, sleeping, reading, doing a bit of cross-stitching, watching the time trials for the Indy 500, went to see Bruce Springsteen, and doing more sleeping.

I don't have anything scintillating to report; but I figured I better show my face before everyone forgot about me!!

The picture above is the latest issue of Sampler and Antique Needlework. I am all done reading it and would love to pass it on. If you would like it; please leave me a note on this post. I will pick a winner on Monday.
These scissors are gorgeous! I think they have been photographed upside down, and they are still gorgeous. If anyone knows who makes these please let me know. I bet they are cost prohibitive though.

I hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend.

EDITED TO ADD WINNER: Diana, you are the winner!!! Please email your address to me at and I will have the magazine off to you quickly. Thanks to all for the comments! As soon as I get another good magazine I will have another drawing.

Love the scissors!!! Don't include me in the draw as I have the magazine already. My bags are packed and tomorrow we fly to Chicago. I hope to see you/talk to you next week!!!

HI Laura- glad to know you are still around! Sounds like you awere in desperate need of some "you" time. Hope you enjoy the weekend! Any big plans?

Diana said...

Just found out from reading Karin's blog that you live in my area. Hope to make it to the Inspired Needle someday. Maybe we'll meet at the stitching club.

I don't have the magazine, so please include me in the drawing.

I love those scissors. Sorry! I can't help ya.

Howdy Laura! is there a way I can sign up to be notified when your blog updates? I would love a little shout out and have seen them on other places...but your place is where I want to be. No need to put me in the drawing. Miss you!

I'd love to be entered in the drawing for the magazine! I've been looking at it when I visit my LNS to stitch, but it's not in the budget right now.
