A Snowflake to Love and Winner!!!

Hello everyone!!

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last few posts.  I am finally finished reports, save for one complex report.  I was on a roll yesterday but it had snowed and I wanted to take a walk along the river, so that's what I did! It is so cold here but beautiful.  I will take this over rain any day.  Nothing worse than having to commute with bags and umbrellas and fighting with the wind.  Anyhow, I did do a wee bit of crafting at night which I will show after I show you what my dear friend Vickie sent to me when I told her about Little Bean.  She stitched the cutest ornament for us that I can't wait to put on our tree.  


Isn't it the sweetest ornament?!! Thank you so much Vickie dear! We will put it up every year on our tree and tell Little Bean all about it.

I also got a few more rows crocheted in my granny stripe which I have abandoned for awhile. 


Titus had to step in to model for all of you.  See how he's eying the string?!

Then I finished Sarah Chapple's vase, which is just so beautiful.  I'm going to stitch the other one then work on the 1 over 1 butterflies that are around the vases.  


I did try to stitch on the PS Santa ornament last night but I decided to cut the fabric which was really silly because I cut it without taking into account the stick he's holding so either I will rip it out or leave the stick out.  My hubby asked why I would do such a thing...I don't know why I make my life more difficult for myself, I just do.  Oh well.

The Winner of the $25 Gift Certificate is..............................


Maggee from Stitching Devotee!!!!!

I did the random generator thingy and the number came up 26, which was Maggee's comment number.  I couldn't take a photo of it for the life of me so if anyone knows how to do that, let me know for the next time!!

I'll be contacting you Maggee to get your info and send you the GC tomorrow after school.  

Thank you all for participating!! I wish I could give out more!!

Hugs to all



Anne

That pic of the leaves with the snow is wonderful! I love the ornie Vickie sent you -- it's perfect, and so thoughtful! She is a sweetie! Love your granny stripe! I'm thinking about trying my hand at one too, but we shall see. I need to re-learn crochet first. lol! Titus is a cutie! Mia stares at the yarn as I'm knitting too. lol! You can see her wanting to play with it, but she's a good girl for me. Glad the worst of the reports are done! Take good care of yourself and the little bean!

Such a perfect ornament for the three of you, Anne. How kind of Vickie to stitch that for you--she did a great job.

Love your progress on your pretty blanket and the sampler, too. I'm amazed you can stay awake enough in the evenings to craft! You should start getting more and more energy soon, though...

Congratulations to Maggee--I'm sure she's overjoyed :)

Have a good week, Anne--take care of yourself and little Bean :)

Vickie's ornament is so cute and so fitting for you guys!! :D Titus just wants to help with your granny blanket so he can wrap up in it himself (like all that fluff isn't enough)! And congrats to Maggee~ I'm sure she'll enjoy your fun stuffs!! :D

I dunno if you're a Windows user or a Mac user so have both instructions! On Windows, to take a picture, you want to do a print screen! Hold down the ALT key and press the PrtScn key (usually the upper-right of your keyboard). It will take a picture of whatever is open on your screen so you can paste it into whatever image viewing program you use on your computer.

Mac version is a bit more complicated: Apple key and Shift4 to change the cursor to a cross-hair. Press the space bar to turn it into a camera. Click on the window you want to take a picture of! I think it will default save to your desktop but not sure as I try to avoid Apple products as much as possible haha. :B

If my random blather isn't clear enough, just google "how to print screen mac/windows" and surely someone has made a better tutorial that me ahaha.

The ornament is just perfect! I love your blanket, it has wonderful colours.

woolwoman said...

beautiful ornament - what a treasured keepsake from a friend. Hope you are feeling well and I'm glad you are enjoying the season. Crocheting under a big blanket is a great thing to do in the winter. I think Titus loves it ! Hope you continue to find time to do a few X's - Cheers Melody

Vickie's ornie is so cute! I have wanted to stitch it for someone since I first saw it! This year's mag had the baby hanging the star on the tree, I wonder if next year's will be a little toddler snow child and we will follow the family grow!

Karoline said...

The Ornie is so cute! Your projects are looking lovely, especially Sarah.
