Merry Christmas and the GiveAway Winner

Hi all,

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.  Ours was very low key, it's not the same with the kids being so far away.  We did get an opportunity to Skype with them and of course, once we got off the computer, I cried like a baby. 

I got lovely gifts from Japan, a beautiful temari ball for my Christmas tree, a colbalt blue ornament, a handpainted scroll and a Japanese calendar.  I gifted myself with the newest Blackbird designs book and all the fixin's to stitch it.  I certainly don't need another chart, book or bauble, but hey, I can't resist!  I got some stitching done too over the weekend,  I finished the Bee Man's garden and another LHN ornament that I modified.  I'll post those pics soon because it's very, very grey here today and the pictures will be very washed out.

Now, on to the giveaway.....the winner of my Christmas Gift-Away is....

Girl, drop me a line at Mikes1mom@gmail.com with your address and I'll get this in the mail to you!

Thanks so much for all those who played!

So, today I have an interview.  Say a prayer around 11 for me.

Gotta run!

The BBD book with supplies made the perfect Christmas gift. I hope your interview went well.

Good luck with the interview, Joanie!

I know what you mean about being far from relatives at this time of the year. Thankfully, my own son is too young to move out, but I do skype with my parents (who live in Australia) over Christmas - it's just really hard to coordinate with the time difference between the two countries - you probably have a similar issue with talking to your son in Japan.

Congratulations to Missy, Raven on her win!
