Check out Mary Ann's give away...

Blog buddy Mary Ann is giving away a cross stitch book...  you know you want one if you stitch at all... so go over and get in on the fun...

She has been pretty lucky herself with winning things in give aways ever since I have been a follower of her blog... and I always give her a bad time.... hhaha... poor Mary Ann... she's got me for a blog buddy!

No stitching today.... helping build a platform for the drill press.... it had one on the workbench once... can't remember why we took it apart...but, now...we need to use the drill press and it needs to be somewhere stable and at the right height...etc...so ..we found some lumber in our stash in the shed...and plans are being drawn up as I type.  Oh, oh... caught.... need to go lift the heavy bugger...... no more fooling around on here..... later.......

Don't hurt yourself! Drill presses are definitely heavy. Thanks for the heads up to check out Mary Ann's giveaway (almost thought when I saw the headline that I was having a giveaway that I didn't know about, but then realized she spells her name minus the 'e' on the end).

Ha ha yourself:) So I ask myself what the heck is she doing now....drill press??? I don't think you need one of those to do embroidery.

You certainly keep things interesting, Vee...A drill press? I know they are heavy buggers though, as we just recently brought my Dad's drill press to our home. My husband needed one of our sons to help him move it. Your hubby is lucky to have you as his "happy" helper! ;) xoxo

I love when you can find the pieces and parts you need to do a project in a stash somewhere. FREE is always a Good Thing! Your dolls are masterpieces. You have incredible talent in your stitching and embroidering too.
Yes I've been caught many a time sneaking to the computer to take a peek at something, just a peek, and I've been called back to the task at hand. I think that's part of the life of a blogger!

Blessings & Hugs, Edie Marie

Hi Vee,

It sure does sound heavy - a drill press and hope you got it sorted.
I enjoyed seeing the scenery from the rail-car and the French knots are lovey.

Hope you are enjoying the week
