We have a winner & I have a finish

Congratulations! Donna G....you won the Pumpkins stitched piece.  I've messaged you to get your mailing address. Thank you all who entered.
Here is Lizzie Kate's Promise me....I did a few changes...balloon instead of heart, honey pot instead of basket and colored the owl's eyes & beak. We have some Winnie the Pooh fabric to frame it with....don't know if it will be a pillow or a hanging piece.

My oversight your bonus

LOL, I just finished this piece and went to enter the info into my database....alas there was already a finish date entered....I went back to my pictures and yes, I've stitched this before. Sooooo, I will do a drawing for this finished stitching. Will draw on Friday morning 2/22/13 so leave a comment if you wish to win this. I am going to redo the beads though since I can see the carry over threads on the picture, that won't take me too long to redo.

 Here is my progress on two ongoing wips and two new starts.

This one is a commissioned piece. Dimensions kit on 18ct. navy.  This is the area of 1/2 stitches that I'm starting with.

Another Sunday at home

Why lately have these storms been coming on Saturday night where it's keeping me from church on Sunday? I have a 50min drive to church so have to weigh the risk of driving it....we got 4+" of snow last night(that was supposed to be a dusting). Normally that would be find but DH said he NEEDED 4WD to get out of our subdivision(I don't have it, he does) and that vehicles were off the road all over the counties. News backed that up especially to the area I would have been headed....oh well, plowing the driveway later today so show 'n tell now.

Here are my 4 WIPS that are large enough to show progress pics.
