D is finished, a giveaway, and more..

I finally finished D in the Stitcher's Alphabet! Here she is..
I've got my threads pulled for "E"- I think it's going to be really pretty!  I have also been working alot this weekend on this little Mother's Day gift for one of my grandmas- she doesn't have a computer so I think it's safe to post- it's not finished yet, there are flowers along the bottom too.

It's a freebie from cross-stitching.com, though I looked recently and didn't see it on there anymore. I printed it in 2002 I think- that's what was on the paper anyway. I am hoping to finish it up soon so I can stitch something for my other grandma too, before Mother's Day.
I found out today my dad had given me a gift without even knowing it- he recently gave Hanna his old laptop.. he had cleared most everything on it but left all his photos- so I have tons of pics of my kids- some I had never even seen before. And my favorite- this one of my parents and I-

And one of my brother and I- Hanna thought I was a boy. Thanks hon.  I would be the older one in the picture.

And here are a couple of my kids I didn't know existed!

You would think since I was in the picture I would know that it existed- but I guess I forgot. I had never seen it before. And another-

I may have seen this one and just forgot..
and now some more pictures from New Bern- I bet you think they are never going to end don't you? lol


One of the homes nearby-

we thought that white house was neat.

And this is New Bern's LNS - Weaver's Webb.
Oh, and I almost forgot my giveaway! Will be drawing for this one Thursday evening-

Just leave a comment on this post to enter! There are other holiday designs in this book besides the ones pictured.. there are some on the back cover also.  Good luck!
