I WON wooo-hoooo !!!!

It's Friday...YAY!   To be honest one day just melts right in to the other for me but I know many of you celebrate the start of the weekend because you work all I celebrate with you!

I didn't have the laptop on very often while visiting my son and his family in PA.  I wanted to use every precious moment for hugs and kisses for my sweet baby boy (grandson) and making yummy things to eat.  One of the few times I had it on I had left a comment on P.J.'s blog (Porcupine Needle) and entered her one year blogaversary giveaway.  Then I found out 4 days before coming home that I WON...I WON!!

The pretty pink package arrived yesterday.  We had spent a long day driving to and from Lexington for a Dr.'s appointment.  I sat in the examination room for two hours before walking out to proclaim I had waiting long enough and I was going  home but Masterchief urged me to stay.  So stay I did.  The trying day was instantly made better when Masterchief checked the mail and handed me this................

I couldn't WAIT to open it!  Here is a pic of everything...........

Can you believe it?!  P.J. lives in Maine and we were just there to visit Maserchief's mother in May so these things mean even more to me.  Everything was wrapped in tissue paper held together with ribbon.  I would have showed you that but I remembered to take a picture AFTER I had torn in to it in all my excitement.  The package was inside the adorable tote bag that's there in the back with NEWPORT on it.  It's just the perfect size to pack a stitchy project in for on the road.

I do not own even ONE scissor fob so I can't wait to make this one!

The pattern P.J. included is called A Spot Of Friendship and couldn't be more fitting.  I have a soft spot for samplers (have I mentioned that, ever?)  

Next to it here is the itsiest bitsiest little chart I think I've ever seen!  It's by The Prairie Schooler and it's just adorable!

Next up is a needle minder.  Now here's something else I've never seen........

I have leaned it up here against the bluebirds in my kitchen window.

Here it is close-up................

Isn't she awesome?  P.J.'s friend, Karri made it to include in her giveaway.  She is the Goddess Of The Dead.  Perfect for Halloween stitching.   It's so unusual...I LOVE it!!

P.J. obviously put alot of thought and kindness in to this giveaway and I am so very grateful to her.



I have one last thing to share with you before I close and go make myself a salad.  

Laymie had an ultrasound on Thursday and found out they are having a GIRL!  She is entering her second trimester now and her pregnancy is going smoothly.  I am thrilled that Liam will have a little sister!  Her new due date is November 25th.  I work every Spring and Fall and I am praying that I will not be working when it comes time for her to have the baby.  When Liam was born I was knee deep in radioactive.....STUFF.  I want to be there SO BADLY this time.  


Accomplishments today:  
  • did my 5-mile exercise DVD
  • planted my parsley in a pot
  • laid out in the sun (just a bit too long)     *maybe*  
  • painted the bench that needed it so badly on our front porch
  • washed and line-dried four loads of laundry (I love the smell of line-dried sheets!!)
  • made whoopie pies (Masterchief kept two and we gave the rest to our neighbors

Thank you all so much for your input about the word verification.  I haven't really decided what to do about it yet.  It has however made me appreciate all of you even MORE who really don't care for the WV but still do it to leave a comment on my blog!  BIG HUGS and a heartfelt thank you!

Have a wonderful weekend.  The weather is to be really nice here in southern Kentucky.

You are too sweet! Oh I am thrilled you are excited about your package. Had fun putting it together. :-) At the rate it has been raining, may need to stitch that little rainy day pattern. But the rain makes the garden grow.

Congrats and the granddaughter to be. Liam will make a great big brother.

That Faye is too sweet. Hope you all have a splendid weekend!!

Keep on stitching.

Congrats on the win and the needle minder is just wonderful. I haven't seen one like that but since all things Halloween call out to me, I must be on the lookout for one.

Lovely gifts from P.J. You will love all of the new stitching projects. Wonderful news about the new baby granddaughter to come.

Mindi said...

2 Hours waiting in the exam room ?!!? You definitely deserved the reward of the package after that. Lots of great goodies in the package, and that needle minder is fabulous! I'd go crazy without my needleminders. Well, maybe not crazy, but I definitely save my feet from stepping on needles.
