Nima at Made to Treasure is hosting a 100th post giveaway. Two choices: sew or cross stitch.

There is also a RAK giveaway sometime in April-June for stitchers and're choice... Check out StitchersAnon.

Terri over at Sprinkles is also offering a giveaway that her SAL group is doing. It's for a chart and floss pack for Jenny Bean Humble Servant Sampler designed by Shakespeare's Peddler design.   It's one that I really really want to stitch too!!!!

Debbie at Thread Gatherer is sponsoring a Spring giveaway for a pink flower frog. I really want one and pink is my color!!!!

Anthony's thyroid is barely working, one side is enlarged. As a result, he is having seizures (3 yesterday with 2 being an hour long) because his body isn't absorbing enough of the meds. I was supposed to have foot surgery today but have postponed it until April 14th due to my son's medical issues.

I've been stitching on the Castles in the Air and am actually caught up.  I also decided to change all the beads our for others and have finished up to Part to wait on the next section.

Oh and I bought my first laptop last Friday! Walmart had an awesome deal on an emachine for $297!!!  It is not a netbook either. It has more memory then my computer @ work. I'm loving being on the comfy cough and internet too!!

I haven't worked on the Pansy Sampler SAL in awhile. I got ahead and then didn't know what to do. I believe that everyone may have moved on to other projects. I may try to figure out some of the directions this weekend.
