Monday, Monday!!!

Had a good weekend, had to put the crafting weekend with my daughter on hold, weather did not cooperate!! She will be here in a couple of weeks!! This snow is really putting a damper on my plans!!!
We watched "Jaws" Friday night, I swear I love that movie!! I jump every time that head pops out of that porthole!! Ok, I've seen married 36 years, we've watched it at least 2x per year...that's 72 times!!! No wonder I know every line!!! LOL!!!
Had the old folks over last night for the Super Bowl, that's my parents, ages 91 and 87!! We had a great time, I fixed tacos and nachos, quite good!!!
I did start on a new project, I can't remember the name, but it's by Notforgotten Farm, a cute heart with an alphabet...got quite a good start on it!!! I have 2 committment stitchings, better get on the ball!!!
Well, have a great evening, let's keep our fingers crossed for warmer weather!! I'm really mad at that groundhog!!!

I had a thought...

Ok, so that's scary!!! Sometimes this ol' brain is not fireing on all channels!!!
I am going to have an Easter giveaway!!! I'm not going to tell you what it is...let's just say that I love primitive stitch as much as x-stitch!!!
So, if you would like a chance on winning, just reply to this post with your name and email address!!! Also, please ask your fellow bloggers to sign up!!!! Thanks so much!!
Looks like some snow and ice is in our forecast for this weekend...my daughter and 6 year old granddaughter are supposed to come from Lexington for a visit..we are going to make curtains for my kitchen and have an all around crafting weekend!!! Yippee!!!
Hope it works out!!!
Would love to hear from you crafters....love new ideas and would love to start a SAL with you!! Any ideas?

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!!

Everything included, pattern, material, etc...all but the tread...the first 3 are really cute!! I can hardly wait to get started!!! Weather supposed to be wintry this weekend, so maybe some serious stitching can be accomplished!!!

New Blogger

Hello, all!!! I have finally set up a blog!!! I decided on the name Fannie's Place, that was my Granny's name, and she was quite the quilter!! So this site is in memory of her!!!
I am an avid cross stitch junkie, always a project within reach!!! I'm just getting into finishing, and have gotten some wonderful ideas from other blogger sites!!! Now, if I can figure out how to post pictures, I'll be all set!!! Hope to also post giveaways!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!!
