Right now LizzieKate is having a contest.  Here is what their blog says: "Ready? Here's how it works!
We're looking for sayings for the next group of 3 Inspiration Boxers. Submit your ideas until March 9Multiple sayings may be submittedWe'll choose our 10 favorites (with a little help from our friends) and post them on the L*K blog.

Then for the next week or so, you can VOTE for your favorite inspirational sayings. We'll give prizes to everyone who makes the "Top 10" list and more goodies to the 3 big winners. The Top 10 list will all receive new Inspiration Boxers (and other goodies) and the 3 "big" winners will receive Inspiration Boxers and an additional $50 of Lizzie*Kate designs of their choice."

How awesome would that be?!!!  You can go here to see previous Boxers and go here and leave a comment with your saying.  Don't forget to leave your email address in the comment.  I love LizzieKate designs and have stitched one, which you can see here, but I would love to do more, I have my eye on quite a few once I get some of the stuff done I have on the go now.  Good luck everyone but I hope I am one of the winners!

The dog ate my pattern

The above picture is the cross stitch I talked about awhile ago.  The one where I lost the pattern and the only conclusion I can come to is that the dog ate it.  I don't feel bad blaming her because she has eaten many things over the last 10 years and on this particular day there was other evidence that she was enjoying a meal of things she shouldn't be eating, so I am very sure she did do it.  If I remember correctly, she was into flyers, so my pattern could have gotten eaten along with the flyers.  So if anyone happens to have this pattern and wouldn't mind if I borrowed it to finish this I would love that.  It has various fruit along the bottom, a large pineapple in the middle and I am pretty sure it says "Welcome" along the top.   

 And this is some progress on Peter Rabbit.  It is quite slow going but I am very happy with it so far, but since my babes is almost 1, he will probably be 10 before it is completed.  I don't think a 10 year old is really going to appreciate this.  haha.
