Just a Peek and a Contest

     Yes.  Just a peek at what I'm stitching up at this time.  It's a gift for a friend and I don't want her to see a lot of it.  Another reason why I don't want to show anymore of it is because I thought it would be fun to see if anyone can guess what piece it is I'm stitching.  One hint is that it's a Jeremiah Junction chart.  Who ever guesses the correct piece first will receive a spring box from me.  Spring is on it's way and the box will be filled with springy things and stitchy things as well.  Fun things too maybe.
     Rules to Contest:
        You must be a follower of my blog.
        You must post this contest on your own blog for others to join in the fun.
        Please leave your email address and your blogsite address when you sign up to join in the fun.

The contest will last until someone wins, or I finish the piece, and in the meantime I'll be filling the Spring box.

     Now here's the only picture that you'll be seeing of the piece until either someone wins or I finish the piece itself.  I must say that as I used to enjoy Jeremiah Junction, I am also enjoying this one.

I really enjoy all the back stitching in them.  Just makes all the colors pop.

     This week has been cold and rainy some, but it's a beautiful day today with a wonderful blue clear sky.  The sun feels good as always this time of year.

     I may have mentioned that my sister, Georgia and I are planning an adventure, and we're preparing for it now.  We have joined Planet Fitness, and go three times a week.  We're looking for muscle growth above anything else as we're going to start some hiking in the future.  By the end of this year, I think we'll be ready to hike some trails in the mountains of NC.  She is now 67 and I'll be 70 in March, so we're no spring chickens as the old saying goes.  We're young at heart though and we would love to head for the Appalachian Trail in two to three years.  In the meantime, we'll just continue to prepare our bodies and minds for it and collecting things we'll need.  Here's a picture of us taken at the beach a couple of months back.  She has our dad's Italian complexion and beautiful


dark hair.  She always has a hat on and I usually always wear a scarf.  I need to get her another hat knitted also.
     Need to let ya'll go for this time around.  My stitching is calling my name as well as a good book.  Until next time, ya'll be well, be warm take care and don't forget to "Feel the colors". Love ya'll.

     Get busy on my contest now.  I'm going to have fun getting a winner's box together.
