Giveaway Winners, Greek Mandala Update, and IHSW

First things first, Boyfriend is reading over my shoulder again. "Be sure to write about me and how helpful I am! And handsome!" Yes. Boyfriend is helpful.  And handsome. Moving on.

But to give credit where credit is due, Boyfriend did pick the names of the giveaway winners!

The box in which the names were housed:


Boyfriend picking the first name:


And.... THE WINNERS!


SO! lesli, sharine, and TheCraftyPrincess - I will be emailing you shortly - if you could send me your mailing addresses I will have some goodies along your way soon! (With Boyfriend's help.)

Next, Greek Mandala.

Before:


After:


Next I will be working on Tiny Rose Garden Mandala during IHSW! Go ahead and zip over to Joyce's Blog and sign up for a weekend of stitching - or click on the little hermit crab on the right.

Today, Boyfriend and I went to the gym. It was pretty good - excellent workout, and towards the end while Boyfriend was at the squat rack and I was doing my lat pulldown - some guy sat across from me and started chatting me up. It was kind of uncomfortable for me since I don't like being approached, so I look over at Boyfriend and what does my Knight in Shining Armor do? Defend my honor! You may think. No. He was laughing. At least he didn't go into some sort of jealous rage.... He did wink and blow me a kiss, though.

Have a great stitchy IHSW, everyone!
