I have discovered that sometimes being late doing things can have "great/good" out comes---
I ended up with 2 giveaways one on each of my two "sites"-- on the same day--and I had 4 comments on each site--so maybe that was why it took me "an" extra day or so to do the drawings--I do not do that "random genny" thing--I want to draw my winners myself --it is more work--but sooo much more fun!!!!

On this site the giveaway had to do with "HUGS" that day and the winner is:

*********KELLY from
she emailed me today to say that she was a "happy" winner and it was her BIRTHDAY--how cool is that (no Kelly I won"t tell what number this b-day is--that is for you to do????)

on the Di'sWorkbasket site
*********CHARLENE won from 
she emailed me today to say that she was an "happy" winner and that today was her 15th Wedding Anniversary--but that it was a sad and lonely one for  her as her husband is serving our country overseas--but now she was smiling--also it was the first time she had won anything---how wonderful is that!!!!!

Now I have to get my "act" together and get a couple packages out in the mail on Monday!!!!
(I actually feel like I am the winner today!!!!!)

On ward we go---

I did get finished last night and got it pressed today--it is last Christmas's gift to us from Gail Pan --I really enjoyed stitching this and how have this years already traced and ready to stitch--will do it to match this one as I plan to make them into pillows!!

 I worked in the "workshop" on these today--they just are layered with back and batting and the print square on top==then I did a fancy stitch around each block then cut them with the pinking shears--then I will press each one and give it alittle spray starch and a thread at the top to hang them with and I have some little gifts for my Christmas cards--etc.

How simple!!!!

Another fabric goodie package from the mail man today---but this should be my last order at least until-- until --- well--knowing me until January 2010---Next year--think I can wait until next year for more fabric??????

I think this picture I took a little bit ago is sooo cute---doesn't it look like my buddy is smelling the tree??????

Sandy claws!!!!!!

NOW you all be good little "Angels" this week end and stay safe---and eat some holiday goodies for me!!!!
