Not much I can say about the evening really other than she was very entertaining and it was very interesting to find out how she goes about writing her novels and I'm now the owner of 4 signed copies of them inc. her new one.
I noticed when I came to write this post that yesterday's was #500!!!!! I had noticed a little while ago that it was approching and I had planned on doing a giveaway to celebrate but it snuck up on me so I've got nothing prepared for one so bear with me for a few days while I scratch my head and figure one out

Hmm can I get up there (it's the cupboard to the left of the window in the second pic of this post)
All was well so she settled down
And Toby decided that Mel needed help with an assignment while Millie was safely in the cupboard
I've done poking in my freebie favorites folder and have found the link for the Peacock Heart you'll need to save it to your puter to print it

Mel has let me know that the Valentine Exchange I sent to her has arrived safely.
I stitched a freebie for her called Peacock Heart in Stef Francis' Noel floss and finished it into a pinkeep. I'm really pleased with the way it tuned out and was sorry to see it go.
As usual the fabric in the background is the backing and the ribbon has a cream coloured stitch running through it
Apologies for not giving a link but I've downloaded IE 8 today and it won't let me paste the web address to turn it into a link. If anyone has any suggestions on how I fix it I'd love to hear them.
Oh and Blogger is the one putting all the break in the text not me

And these guys should of been posted weeks ago but for some reason or other that didn't happen and I came across them when clearing the camera card off.
The kid panels of Snowman trio. I've started getting the bits and pieces together to finish off the entire bauble so hopefully this will also be finished this month.
I've realised that I've not posted my weekly update on Legends or the afghan so I'll try and get that done tomorrow

PHD's came about when I was talking to Carrie while taking her Angel Box class a while ago but I couldn't remember what she'd called her WIP's so when I took another class with her in November last year (Christmas tree this time and surprise, surprise it's not finished but it's on the list) I asked her again. A PHD is a Partly Half Done or as someone said on a BB a Potential Happy Dance. I decided to have PHD's rather than WIPs in the future but I'll leave you to wonder which one I prefer of the two.

Get the UFO RR done and mailed Yes
Get an ornament done Yes
No more than 5 Guilt free starts If you don't count the ornament, SOLAK square and exchange project then yes :)
For Febuary I'd like to
Finish the Bear Afghan
Get an ornament done
Get a SOLAK square done
Finish as many other things as poss.
I stitched for 112 hours 52 mins had 8 new starts and 4 finishes that were all new starts (I have a bad foot that I have to rest as much as poss, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)
So those 3 new starts in one that a few of you want to know about, well the first was Doro Theos from My Big Toe, Carriage House Samplings Quaker Alphabet Sampler and a Dwarf rabbit that's for SOLAK. Alice asked what the story was behind 3 in one day so, yesterday was the last day Jan and in turn the last day of Guilt Free Jan and I decided to throw caution to the wind and start 2 things that have been calling to me for a while. The rabbit was because I realised I hadn't even started a SOLAK square for Jan so if I did I could claim it for the month but it will be finished in the next few days and when there's a little more of the other wo to see I'll share.
Now I know that my PHD total has creeped back up to the number it hung about for most of last year but I signed up for the Sprint in the Stitching Olympics over on the Wagon so there should be a fair few finishes this month. And in the same spirt I've decided to have a bit of a Finish it Feb with my beading and hope to finish off lots of the projects that have been left half done from the weekly class I used to go to.
Current PHD total = 43
