Do you remember....

...the giveaway post back in June! (sorry about that, didn't think it was that long, I could regale you with tales of stress and woe due to final sproglet going to school, or all the extra meetings etc I have had to do even though I am 'retired'  from Playcentre (yeah right), I could, but I won't)
Anyway, today is the big day - Random Number Interger day!! Can I get a whoop whoop?

Magpie's mumblings, you get red. Can you email love with your addy (contact via profile page)
Settle down, settle down all of you that missed out. I promise to be a better giveaway runner from now on, well, for next month anyway, then i think I am out of giveaway stuff!
I will be offering one of my card pouches, so stay tuned.
 here is Kerry's completed xmas tree skirt wedge 

and a bag front. If you are wondering , the beading stitch I used is called 'oglala'. I googled until I found instructions that made sense to me. This  puppy has so much beading thread I think it will survive world annihilation, but I also figure that it won't sustain quite so much 'abuse' as a pouch that lives in your pocket. I did most of this beading at a meeting the other day. Was fantastic to get stuff done.
And finally I leave you with a quote. Jon said to me yesterday after his 4th day of school, after the third stomping, door slamming trip to the beadroom
"mum, I just want to go back to my old life"

Very neat stitch with the beads. Love it. Your poor boy:) I home school, so they are content and happy and if not there is no where for them to stomp off to, since they are already here LOL. No really they love it. I feel for your son, school can be tough! Give him a hug for us:)

Jo you are just blowing me away with your beading faces. They are gorgeous.
Is this the first year for your little guy? My daughter's middle boy said to her the first day of school "Mommy my tummy feels like I have been a bad boy". He is now going into grade 6 so I guess he survivied.
