Belated thanks and 200th post!

I entered a couple giveaways recently and won!  First off, I won a chart from The Drawn Thread, Box of Stitches, from Deb.  But I can't remember her blog!  Deb, if you see this, please let me know so I can thank you properly!  Here is a pic.
I'm anxious to start this one!

The other giveaway I won was a candle from Shirlee at The Easily Influenced Stitcher  Thank you Shirlee, I love it!  Here is a picture of the candle she sent me.  It's called Mistletoe Kiss and smells wonderful!  Sort of a cinnamony smell.. 
I've also got a couple finishes, but not cross stitched.  Crocheted!  I made a frilly, ruffled scarf for my mom for her birthday and one for me!  Here they are!  The blue one is mine.  :-)

They were so fun to do, once I figured out how!  LOL!  I also made another one for my mom in cream and gold, but forgot to get a picture.  I've started another one in shades of red and purple!  I'll be sure to get pictures of it.

I also got some stash recently.  I ordered this a while back and received it not too much later.  It may be  a Christmas present for someone, but it may not!  From the Victoria's Sampler, French Linen Pockets.
Can't wait to work on this one, either!  Why can't I have more hands and hours? :-)

I think that's it for now.  I may do a giveaway, but if I do, it won't be until after Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Things are so busy around here! 

Have a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Eskie smiles,

I have been very tempted with the VS pattern, it is so pretty.

I just started cross stitching a while ago but I haven't been able to post about it on my blog yet since they're all gifts for one or another of my readers. It's fun!! :)

What a great blog! Very newsy and friendly. Great post here as well. Love your scarf finishes. I've been knitting mine but want to crochet one. The stitches are quite loose when knitting them and the needle is forever slipping out! So glad you stopped over to my blog and I'm now your newest follower.
