I just received the March 2010 issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework:
I did this lovely Rose Garden design for Charles Craft last year:
Not bad considering I was in the "depths of hell" at the time I did this design! I am quite pleased with it. I don't usually get to the see stitched models until they are published and I must say, this really came out beautiful!
I'd like to offer my copy of this magazine to the first person who leaves a comment letting me know that they would like to have it. USA residents only please! I just can't keep every magazine that I ever had a design published in. There wouldn't be any room in my house for me and my cats! So if someone would like to have this, just leave me a comment and I'll gladly send it off to you and I'll take care of the postage.
In other news, I made some Oatmeal cookies this morning but I'm not really happy with them. I used my mom's recipe which I forgot, I don't care for. They're too crunchy. Next time, I'll go back to my recipe which is soft and chewy.
I've also been fooling around with Facebook today. I had to download the latest version of my browser just to get Facebook to work properly. Then I set up a "Page" for Kitty & Me Designs. I'm still trying to figure that out but I did manage to get my Etsy shop linked over there. I could use some "fans" now if anyone feels like heading over there.
The other day, I worked up a new Banner for my shop:
As I mentioned last week, I've got to not push myself so hard and instead, do things that I really enjoy so I decided to have some fun and play with my craft supplies and my shop. The banner isn't exactly what I wanted but it's good for now. I may play with it some more at a later date.
Finally for today, Tristan at Enchanted Revelry blog is offering a very nice give away. I found his blog today through Mary Anne's blog. Tristan's blog is wonderful! Thought provoking and visually incredible! Do stop by and take a peek!
I guess that's all for now. I feel like I didn't accomplish anything today! Did you ever have a day like that? You make your plans but they just don't work out. Well, tomorrow's a new day. For now, I'll get myself into a nice warm bubble bath, grab my latest Somerset Studio magazines and relax.
