I really did think about posting this WIP Wednesday on know, when it's supposed to be...but I have a giveaway winner to announce!  What's one more day?  My WIPs certainly weren't going anywhere.

So, without further ado...Amy is our winner!  BUT, Sara at Knotty Gnome was the only other person to enter, so I'm going to send you both something!  If you two awesome ladies could email me your addresses, I'll get everything sent out to you!  (My email address is in my About page.)

So what unfinished projects do I have laying around?

First is my Spooky Halloween Sampler from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery!  You'll notice I ran out of gray floss before finishing the frame, so that's cool.  It didn't stop me from working on week one!  I'm working on it one color at a time.  That just seems to make more sense to me than doing it frame by frame, plus it's a little bit more organized that way.

Tule quilt, I promise I'll be there soon!  These have sadly sat on my sewing table for a week, just waiting for more love.  I have everything cut out except my white 5" squares.  It's been a busy week!  In addition to cross-stitching, turning 26, and having guests, we also went to see the National for the third time since we started dating.

We saw them at the Fillmore uptown, and it was an awesome and terrible show.  Awesome--it's the National; Matt walked right next to us during Mr. November; they always kill it; it was a different setlist than the other two shows we've seen.  Terrible--standing room only; I'm old and can't stand that long; after the opener about fifteen people pushed themselves in front of me, obviously not realizing I'm 5'4"; the guy next to me smelled so gross and had no problem dancing out his problems.

I'm not a fun concertgoer as it is, even when conditions are perfect, so if I sound cranky, that's why.  Oh well!  It was a great show though, and I hope to see them again soon.  We've gone every year except 2012, when they didn't tour anywhere near us.  They're a Nick and Emily tradition!

Congrats again ladies!  I hope everyone's week is going well!
