Floss tag suprise!


Stephanie recently held a blog drawing and guess who won? Yep, the old Okie stitcher. She says it was her first try at completing one, and I'd say she was a whopping success. The colors are so vivid. She also included three skeins of Carrie's fibers. Thank you Stephanie. I used a different photo program that what I normally do. I hope the photos do the floss tag justice.
I haven't been stitching much this week. My dad passed away, so I've been dealing with all the "paper" that is involved in a parent's passing. Luckily for the daughters, he had most of his affairs in order, so we've about completed what we can do now.
My stitching is with me, and I've rearranged my mom's living room so I can stitch with adequate lighting! It's amazing how dependent a stitcher person is on good lighting. I may have to bring one of Dazor's, (yes, I said one of) over from my house to keep at hers. No doubt I'll be spending some extra time over here for a while.
I've been looking at your blogs, just not commenting. There's been some fabulous stitching going on.
Later...
