Happy Blog-o-versary to me!

I think it's been a year since I started blogging- go me! I'm finally getting readers, and commentators- thank you all very much for your kind support!
I stitched on Creepy Kids (FOS) on Thursday, but it didn't seem like enough visible progress to warrant a photo. And I must get back to & finish my Hawaiin Biscornu- it's laughing at me in my stitching tote because I threatend to use beads around the edges.
I made a pot of chili this afternoon; it came out very good - "it'll put hair on your chest" as my dad always said about such things; say - would you rather have hair on your chest or a uni-brow? I digress...
Usually my chili is weak, but I put in 3 or 4 of those little finger-size dark green chilis- are those jalapenos? And they had Rotel tomatoes in my little old white-bread suburban supermarket- with cilantro & lime juice. And 3/4 of a can of Budweiser, that other 1/4 can hit the spot at 11:30 in the am! Lip-smacking, I tell you! I used chuck stew beef cut into 1/2" cubes, plus some hamburger leftover from Em's tacos the other night. Bob had given me one of those "Vidalia Chop Wizard" (As Seen on TV) for Christmas- perfect on the onions & peppers. I definitely should write the recipe down before I forget.
Now I have a ton of dishes all over the counter- all holiday leftovers are removed from my house and I have all those containers to wash.

Happy Anniversary! Your chili sounds delish as Rachel Ray would say. Enjoy.

Happy Blogiversary! Just found your blog through the Stitch Bitch blog. The JBW designs you did look great, I love that designer too. Who designed the Hawaiian Sunset biscornu? It's gorgeous!

Thank you both for the kind comments! The chili got better & better each day- evn my daughter liked it!
Kim, as far as the Hawaiin Biscornu,
I found a chart at "Tantes Zolder's" blog (or My Aunt's Attic). I put a link in my sidebar to the right. You may have to scroll back in her archives. I seem to recall having the chart in my bag since around August. I call it Hawaiin becuase I'm using Thread Gatherer's Silk "Hawaiin Sunset" floss.

Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for that color at my LNS, it's gorgeous.
