A quick update

Hi all no photos yet, but wanted to share that I was lucky enough to win a Blue Ribbon on Quaker Christmas and a Red Ribbon for Shepard Bush's Potting Shed at the exhibit at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Ga.

Worked on two projects from my stash - Frankie a needlepoint piece representing Frank Lloyd Wright designs. Also, Lounging Hare from Patrick Woods.

Will have some photos  hopefully tomorrow.

A group I joined this year - STITCH FROM STASH - one of the requirement is not to spend over $25.  Well I was doing great until I found at an antique sale a yard piece of 32 ct Belfast linen for $15 not bad you say---well the gal also had several copies of very old Inspiration magazines for $2 each. Well I bought 6!!!!  So I went over by $2 that means I need to just stay home in February and not buy anything.

Will download photos tomorrow to the computer, I am on my iPad this evening.

Waiting for the snow to come to middle Georgia - this is an anomaly.  Everything is closed tomorrow, could be a good stitching day!!

Have a good evening

Oh hooray, someone who did worse than me, lol! Have been quite disheartened by all the zero dollars being mentioned. Smashing finds, especially the Inspirations. I love that magazine!

Well done on your ribbons too.

Hope the snow treats you well and you have a relaxing stitching day at home. Congratulations on the ribbons at Calloway!

Who could resist such a great deal, I ask you. Fortunately I live in a country which is a stitching desert so nothing like that can be found anywhere here, lol. So it's relatively easy to stay at 0 €.
Congrats on winning the two ribbons!

I found your blog through Stitch From Stash - I'm not surprised you spent over when you see such a bargain. I didn't spend anything BUT I didn't go near craft stores or charity shops.

Congratulations on your ribbons
