Now, I have to make a teeny correction to my post yesterday. The cat authority was in the shelter today. Seems Klaus, ie, Starcat is a little girl, not a little boy. Such is life in the Humane Society shelter!
Hope everyone had a good stitching day.

I've commented several times that one of my favorite designs this year is the Charland "Tipsy Tree." My last finish of 2007 was exactly that design. I tried something new for me, beading around the edge. I think it turned out very pretty. My photo isn't that great, but in person it is so cute. But, alas, it was stitched as a gift, so it's not mine! WINTER
I also started an Elizabeth's Designs piece, "Winter Stitching Club." I enjoy stitching her designs. I have the whole series, finishing Autumn sometime ago.
My friend, Lynn, and I have a NYE tradition of getting up early, driving to Tulsa, then shopping the big sale at The Silver Needle. We arrived about 6:05 a.m. and shopped, shopped, shopped. What fun it is to fill those baskets and get those discounts. After close to two hours, we checked out and headed to get some breakfast. (Who doesn't need sustenance after all that?!) Then to Hobby Lobby for more stash. Like I needed more. Then we headed back to the Silver Needle for shopping for another round. I believe we had a really good morning. Both of us had two large bags stuffed full of stitching goodies. Here's a portion of my stash.I still have openings for five PIF stitchers. To fulfill my part of the PIF, I will randomly choose five stitchers to send stitched pieces to if I have no participants.
Have a great week. I head to the Humane Society tomorrow morning.

I've signed up for my first ever Pay It Forward (PIF) with Jen. If you are interested in a stitched piece from me, then let me know by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to sign you up! Here's the way it works. The first 5 people that e-mail me about my PIF challenge, will get a piece made by me in the next 365 days. This PIF will have a deadline for myself of Dec. 31, 2008. In turn you must post to your blog the same challenge and accept 5 people to send a PIF. They do it on their blog and so on. Hope to hear from you!
