My son and daughter gave me some stitchy goodies, too! My son ordered the Wizard of Oz puzzle from Herrschner's that I asked for, but then he called me and told me to pick out more items so he could spend enough to get free shipping, so I chose this Christmas cross stitch book and some 28 ct hand-dyed Jobelan fabric to also use for a Halloween design next year. My daughter surprised me with an OttLite Task Lamp! She bought me the OttLite Craft Caddy Lamp two years ago, which I use everyday. Now I have a portable light to take with me to stitching GTGs (get-togethers).
I didn't finish my dad's gift in time, but his birthday is in 12 days, so I'll give it to him then. I finished the wire wheel thing on the top right. Lots of backstitching!

I also joined the Turtle Trot SAL hosted by BAP Attack. We pick 13 WIPs/UFOs and stitch a little on each and post progress pics by the 13th of each month. I listed my choices on my Turtle Trot 2013 page.
I had success with my eBay auctions of cross stitch and crewel kits. Almost all of them sold. The high seller was the Elegant Peacock crewel kit, which sold for $81! Yippee!
