Congratulations Deb Levy! Email me your snail mail, and I will be sending you your fabric prize. I chose five of my favorite “blender” fabrics from my stash and cut one yard pieces from each.
Thank you to all of the 22 entries in my blog contest! I wish I could send you all a prize. I will have to think of more reasons for future contests!
Notice that I used my newly made basket to hold your names!
I think it’s not too bad for a first try, though I’m not convinced I’m finished with it just yet. I think it needs some kind of handles added. I hope to get a few smaller ones made up for some handmade Christmas gifts this year.
I haven’t signed up to be an official PIF participant, (the Pay It Forward movement that is going around on many of the blogs) simply because I have so many obligations to meet in my life already, that I didn’t want to sign up, fail, and feel badly. However, I intend to unofficially participate, and look for ways to bless others with my handiwork. I just don’t want it to feel like another thing I “have” to get done. I hope that doesn’t sound terrible, I’m just being honest. Most days I’m already stretched about as thin as I can go, as I know most of you are, too. I really admire those of you that find ways to handle it all, and still find time and energy to give so much of yourselves.
I am also happy to report that my stepdaughter is going home from the hospital as I type! She had her surgery Thursday and all went well. The doctor didn’t see anything that looks suspicious, but we won’t have the official report til next week. That is such a huge relief! I just wish she didn’t have to go through the discomfort that follows. She is such a special young woman and I love her very much! Thank you for your prayers for her.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
