And the winner is.....

Hello Stitching Friends!

The names of the entrants were carefully copied..and one was drawn from the group.  Congratulations to Moonbeam!  Please email me your name and address and I will mail the Bent Creek kit to you.  Thanks to all of you that entered. 
The weekend goes by much too quickly...  I did make it to Stitching and Stuff in Clinton, Iowa on Saturday with my California stitching relative that is here in Illinois for a week long visit.  Barb and I always have a good time together.  We like the same movies, books and enjoy stitching together. 

We went to the movies the other night to see One for the Money.  We both have enjoyed the Evanovich books.  I was a little hesitant to see the movie, since I usually like the books better than the movies...  But, all in all we both enjoyed it.  I thought Morelli and Ranger could have been 'hotter', but it was a fun movie.  If you haven't read the books, you should. 

I have done a little stitching since the last post.  I have been entwined in the seaweed on block #2...  I resorted to using a highlighter to track where I was on the chart.  After I started doing that it went much easier. 
Sorry for the messy picture, but I wanted to get this post done tonight, and didn't take the time to arrange a better picture.  But, as you can see a good portion of the seaweed is done.  I think this will be one of my favorite blocks.

The family has gathered this afternoon to watch the superbowl together.  We fixed the favorite snacks...vegetable pizza, wings, cocktail weanies, chili cheese dip and brownies...  Now that the game has ended the food is about all gone as well.  So, all in all it was a success. 

Well, thanks for hanging in to the end of this post.  Hope your weekend was an enjoyable one and you found time for some stitching.  The weather was beautiful here in central Illinois.  Sunny and unseasonably warm for February. 

Happy stitching!
