I Made It!!!!

If I had confetti cannons they'd be going off right now!

I made it through NaBloPoMo!!!  I have posted every day for a month and not just on one blog, but TWO blogs!  Sooo if you don't hear from me for a couple of days, don't be surprised this girl probably needs a blog-break.  On the other hand, I've gotten into this daily habit!  I may surprise you and show up here tomorrow!

Still no real stitching to show, but I do have two other things to show you.  At work we have a "peer given" award called the "U Rock" award.    I was very surprised to be one of the recipients of the award!  When you work in a school as support staff where the majority of the employees are teachers sometimes us support staff get a little forgotten in the grand scheme of things.

Also we had a spectacular sunrise this morning!  The colours were gloriously pink, unfortunately my camera just didn't capture the true colours.

I've had a number of commenters asking me where I got my flat fold instructions from.  Sadly, they're not online I bought one of Judy O'Dell's finishing books with spectacular instructions and photos!  I highly recommend them.

Now that is one imaginative award ... I am sure you will enjoy displaying as both a momento of your colleagues' appreciation of your work and an objet d'art.

And you are correct about Judy Odell's books ... well worth the purchase price ... I own two of these invaluable references and will eventually purchase the complete set.

Congrats on your finishing NaBloPoMo. As a NaNoWriMo participant, I know exactly how hard it was to finish this. And I know what you mean by taking a break for a day or so. My novel is waiting for it's ending and I'm just sitting here. And Congrats on the award (which is very cool BTW). It is so neat that you are getting this recognition. And I love the photo.

Yes that is a gorgeous sunrise. Those are one of the things I love about winter...the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
