Is July really almost over? I swear I live in a time warp where I loose days in each month! :)
I'm really quite late on my WIPocalypse update, forgive me, it will almost be time for another one when this one is up. However I did still want to share with you my main WIP for this little fun SAL. The cottages from Country Cottages. Now you saw April last time... and yes I did skip May and June for now, if only because I wanted to get started on my July conversion from US to Canadian colors/flag.
Here's where it's at right now with the first of the color changes. I have the flag drawn up so it will keep moving along soon (note: maple leafs are really a pain to stitch up with no half stitches!)
I also started and finished a little whimsical owl. This guy's pattern is from an old Just Cross Stitch Halloween edition magazine. He's going to be made into a little flat ornament eventually and put for sale on my store. The owl was a great joy to work on only about 2.5 hours to get him stitched up. A nice change and I really love his big eyes!
And now for the part everyone really wants to hear about...
I have de-stashed quite a bit lately and have been "shopping" in my own stash for little projects (like the owl above) to try and keep my purchases down (I'm unsure of if it is actually working or I just like to think it is I've still bought a lot of stuff...).
So I've got some "vintage" patterns (I don't think something should be called vintage until it is older than me, but others disagree) to giveaway. All of them are intact with all their information. I have some fabrics pieces that will go along with the package for the winners.
Once the winners are announced I'll ask them about what kind of patterns they like and try to send some from the huge stack of giveaway ones I have that suit their tastes. Package will include 4-5 patterns, some fabric and a few "extras".
As per popular request I will have 2 winners as with most my other giveaways.

Good luck!! :)
thank you for all your wonderful comments about my new job and the flood we had. Things appear to be all good at the house, though getting rid of the musty water smell is proving a bit challenging. And my new job is going very good. A big, big learning curve but I'm getting it and am fairly confident that I will be able to do it all once I know how. M.
