Quick update and a couple of Giveaways

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. Good food, family, some laughs...and of course, some drama. I am very thankful that it stayed to minor verbal comments (that were not directed at me).  We are probably going to go back and spend Christmas there. Hopefully things will stay calm.

I was able to complete a couple more cats.
Cat # 10 is now complete. I tried four times to fix his eyes. This last time I left as is.

Cat # 11

Cat # 12

I have been working on stitching the boxes for the rest of the cats. I wanted to do this so I can cut some of the excess fabric off the ends. It is getting to be a little too cumbersome to hold as I am stitching. I currently have masking tape on the edges (I restarted this project about a year ago before I knew better). When I cut off the extra I am going to sew the ends. I'll take another picture of the full piece when I get the edges sewn. I need to put this aside for a couple of weeks so that I can get some presents for the kids of the family done.

I took a quick stitch with me to my Brother's but forgot to take a picture of it. I have not touched it since we came back. I think I am going to use this as my traveling piece. I might make a pillow out of it when done.

Now on to the Giveaway portion of our program today.

First is a wonderful pamphlet of snowmen give by the wonderful Parsley at Seasons of My Mind.

Next is another wonderful giveaway by Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe...
