Busy, Busy & A Heads-Up...

While I had to be away from home yesterday, I still managed to get a couple of things accomplished before I left. So, here's today's update...
I finished my embroideries for the wedding hankies, and they're now in Adele's capable hands for the creation of the crocheted lace. The monogram is the groom's initial on the left, bride's initial on the right and their new shared last initial in the center. As they're marrying in January, the bride asked for a snowflake or two, so that's where the snowflakes come in. Do you like it?
Here's the heads-up...
I'm working on these for my Followers Only Birthday Giveaway tomorrow. Any guesses? HA! I'm not telling! You'll have to wait until the giveaway to find out...but I'll tell you one teeny, tiny secret. There will be FIVE winners for this giveaway, so if you're not already publicly following my blog, you might want to sign up now. You'll need to leave a comment tomorrow - and be a follower to be eligible for the drawing. If I can't see you're following me, you won't count. This will be a one day giveaway. My birthday ends at midnight December 3rd, and so does this giveaway. I'll choose the winners with a Random Number Generator (Handsome can't stand the pressure anymore!) and I'll announce the winners on Friday, December 4th.

Gotta get back to work now, so I'll see you tomorrow!

Happy Birthday today, dear Larry. I know you're really proud of your kids and grandkids and you're watching over them. They're all honorable and loving people...and it's obvious they're from you and Eli. I love and miss you. Dee

These bridal hankies are beautiful...I love embroidery and monogramming too. You did a beauiful job on these treasures! I would love to enter your giveaway...I know whatever you're working on...it will be beautiful. I'll be sure to come back to enter tommorrow!
That is the sweetest memorial at the bottom of your post for your Uncle Larry. I can understand how much you miss your uncle. I have an Uncle Russell, and I miss him so much too. He was always playing the Guitar at every Christmas gathering. Anything from Silent Night to Elvis Christmas Music and we all loved to hear him sing. He sounded so much like Elvis too. Our uncles will be with us in spirit, and we will see them again one day sweetie.
Big Hugs,
Queenie
