I won!~! I just got home from work and I checked my email and sure enough in my "in box" was a letter from Elizabeth over at Woods and Quilts (www.woodsandquilts.com)
MY BOM I entered won! I am absolutely speechless! Totally flabbergasted! I feel very privledged
You can see my quilt and check out the awesome patterns at:
In today's society where there is much to be discussed such as; poverty, world hunger, our economy and politics, I found myself to be the hot topic of a debate. I absolutely could not believe it! I went to the 4th floor to do admits and one of the nurses asked me if I had hair extensions! ROFL! She said that they all were discussing my hair and majority thought I did! O my goodness! can you believe it. I told them they REALLY need to get a life! Then I gracefully let them check my hair for extensions. When NONE could be found a few of the girls said: "I told you so!" ROFL I took a picture of my hair. Have you ever tried to put your camera over your shoulder and take a picture?? IT is HARD!
I am back world!~! I took almost one week off to go camping. I mean REALLY camping! We got rid of our travel camper last year and hubby bought a tent! I have the pictures to prove it.
The car rental was a fiasco. They were 2 hours late getting the car there. The car was dirty and it smelt so bad of cigarette smoke I had to ride with the windows down in freezing temps.(I have asthma and requested non~smoking) A red light on the dash board was on and there wasn't an owners manual, only the previous guys paper work..ewwwwwww
Needless to say I stopped and bought lysol and sprayed. I used BUDGET.COM
BUT on the positive side:
Two of the boys got a deer this trip. Thanks to a woman who let them hunt her private land. I went to town and visited their fabric shop. The woman there is ALWAYS sweet, polite and helpful. I ended up buying some batik and fossil ferns. They have a new scrap book shop and I picked up a few things there. The newest addition to Manistee, MI was the Goodwill shop. I went in to see what that was all about and ended up walking out 26 dollars less. I found some wonderful pottery, old homco figurines for holloween, crafty items and patterns! I visited the dollar store and bought bags of cinnamon sticks! Of course our annual treck to the Bargain Barn was a successful. After picking up some christmas gifts for friends and co~workers I feel this was a great trip!
At the camp ground we picked up pine cones & acorns...You can probably see where this is now going! I am going to have one beautiful holiday wreath this year!
Every night at the campground the deer would come out and walk all over. I seen up to 30 deer one night. The most magestic moment was a single male deer with a HUGE rack was by my sister~in~laws camper. It seen me and took off over the ridge and poofed into thin air it seemed, as I looked and looked and I couldn't see it any where.
LOOK at this new give away!~! This is SOOOOOOOOOOOO cool!~!
As another year in football draws closely to an end, (Thank goodness!~!) We remain city champs! Score was 54 to 34. Jesse who is #5 absolutely had a ball! The year started out rocky as the first scrimmage ended with a broken leg. You can see he is flying like the wind now............
Here is the stocking I am going to send this year. I made it using selvedges. I also made my swapper an ornament. I am going to add to...... and from mamacrafty in pigma pen after I took this picture. Now to start stuffing it with goodies I have been collecting! What do you think of it??
This past week, my clerk (even though I think it should be secretary..rofl but that in itself is a long and whole other story) asked me to make her baby a 1st b~day outfit. She had some fabric that she had bought and some notions. This is what I whipped up. I sure do hope the measurements are right. I plan to make head band too out of the fabric, flowers and purple ribbon.
Then I picked up my UFO Calico gardens. I worked last night at it and got 10 more squares prepped and ready to take along on the go. I should have this done soon.
