I am selling my stash, mainly because I have a feeling I won't be stitching these patterns and I will be moving in a year or two. As I was going through some ( just some), I came across of another Sunflower pattern but from LHN. See, I have a theme for this post. I kitted up Little Miss Sunflower and started on her. This is the picture from last week:
This is the picture today, when I finished the house.
Still got quite a bit to go but I have a chance to stitch a lot this week. Maybe it will be almost done by next week. On Sunday, I had a Pampered Chef party by Skype. It was the first time my consultant did the Skype party and I found out later, it was her first live show. All her parties have been online. She did a great job! We had a lot of fun and I made a birthday cake for my aunt. Next time I will take pictures. I am still taking orders for my party.
Here is a picture of me, 3 months after my surgery. For some reason I thought 4 months had gone by but it is just 3. This was taken on April 9th,. I have lost 49 pounds which is a lot. I have been walking a lot more and I even went into a fitting room in Walmart to try on a top. I haven't been able to do that in years!!! I had my jeans on yesterday. I took the belt off, and the jeans fell right to my ankles. I need a new pair!
I am sorry I had forgot I was doing a giveaway. I had appointments and a party to plan. Time just got away from me. I put in 16 entries in the random.org and number 5 popped up.. The winner is
Vickie of Reading and Stitching!
Congratulations Vickie! I will be getting a hold of you shortly and the patterns will be on your way!
Next week I will be back with new stash pictures. My birthday is on Monday and my birthday gifts are piling up nicely. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Vicky
