A Small Update and I won a PIF

I have won a PIF from Leigh(YoYo)
I signed up on her blog and I won. I will receive something stitched by Leigh in the next 365 days. So I am Paying it Forward on my blog. If you would like to receive something stitched and finished by me in the next 365 days just leave a comment and I will have a random drawing on Valentines Day and pick three winners. Winners will need to make the same offer on their blog to continue the Pay it Forward!

I have made a little progress on my Beatrix Potter Sampler SAL. I want to finish the round motif with the big flower before the end of January. One more day of stitching and I will hopefully get it done. It looks to me like that will be the hardest motif for me.
I am stitching 1 over 1 on 28 count with DMC 352 and so any really solid stitching is hard on my eyes even with my lamp and magnifier. I hope I can make better progress next month. I actually have a year to get this one finished and I have hopes of doing so.

My Tiny Treasures Exchange is in the mail and should arrive at it's new home tomorrow. I am finishing up the Prairie Schooler Exchange ornament and will get it it the mail. probably Wednesday. Then I would like to start on Peppermint Lane by LHN and at least get a few stitches done so I can say I started in January lol.
I am still working those crazy hours and it seems like whenever I am home, I need to rest so I can go right back. Sometimes I am only home 10 hours or less.
I actually hate it, but what can I do? I have to keep the wolf away from my door. I am planning on retiring soon and am starting to get the ball rolling. I can't wait to be able to stay home and stitch all I want to. lol.
Be sure to post a comment if you are interested in my PIF

Lovely progress on the BP, that big motif took me ages to stitch!

I'm sorry I don't think I should sign up your PIF as I'm working on my part in two already, but I hope you have as much fun with it as I am.

Wanted to let you know you're in the Totally Useless SAL, I'll add you to the list on my next post. Stop by and let us know when you have posted your photo. The next NEW MOON is February 25.

Love the BP project, your color is very pretty.
