Beat The Winter Blues Blog Hop And A Giveaway!!!
You know, I can't say I really have the winter blues because we haven't seen much winter here this year...that is until this past week. We received 11 inches of snow between Monday and Tuesday and it is so pretty and white everywhere it kind of makes it hard to have the winter "blues." To top it all off my son has his annual school ski day today so we will be spending the entire day out in all that winter whiteness. It is supposed to be warm, although some of you may not think that 30 degrees F is very toasty. I'm packing a bag today with some of my favorite things to do when I'm not helping the kids find the right ski boots, skis, get everything on correctly, or helping them stay standing during ski school.
I usually pack my "to go" bag with a few too many projects. Today I am going to try and finish these embroidered hexagons so I can get this quilt finished. The blocks are all put together and just waiting for these embroidered middles. I'm even making sure I have enough extra floss to complete them, and there will be some paper hexagons and my glue pen in my bag just in case they are needed.
I've got 15 fat quarters of Lynette Anderson's Hollyhock Cottage to help you beat those winter blues and start thinking about a visit to a spring/summer cottage. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me if you would ski today with the kids or if you would pack a "to go bag" to sit inside and stitch while you waited (it's warm in there). You can have a second chance to win by leaving another comment letting me know you are a follower. This drawing will take place on Thursday, March 14 at 5 p.m. CST so you have plenty of time to enter and I will ship anywhere. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
