Liebster Award

Liebster Award

I've been Awarded the Liebster Blog Award by mab3500!!

Some background: Liebster is a German word, meaning favourite, dearest or beloved and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers, who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition. The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the

Liebster to.





2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Thank you mab3500!

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share 5 random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

1. I am the oldest and have 5 brothers
2. I love to cook
3. I have way too many shoes, purses & clothes. I also know I am overcompensating for having little growing up
4. I discount shop...I hate paying full price for anything
5. I fell in love which I thought was impossible until it happened.  Y'all don't get too excited he doesn't love me...isn't that just my luck!! lol

Box Finishing Class

My friend Meari is teaching a Box Finishing Class for the I Love Cross Stitch yahoo group members that want to participate.  I have started my stitched piece and have the box.  I still have to find trim and fabric for the project.  Meari does the most beautiful work!!  Examples of her finished boxes can be seen here.

The piece I chose is "P" is for Princess by the Sweetheart Tree.  I either received this gift as a birthday gift in the ILCS Birthday Club or used some gift certificates I received to purchase it.

The Last Supper

This is what The Last Supper looked like when I took it back out.  I've stitched on it for a week.

This is the progress so far:
