I won!

Back in mid-December I was fortunate enough to win a giveaway from Barbara of To Stitch or Not to Stitch and just before the holiday I received not only the above goodies but others too. A cross-stitched bag, perfect for those small projects, a pair of crochet slippers, a chart with fabric and threads and lots of other bits. Thank you Barbara for your generosity.

The model for Sew Lavender is finished and I need to take a picture before it's release but the light is so bad as it's been raining for days. This, in turn, has brought on my SAD and I feel so low. Will the sun ever shine again? Will I ever sit in the garden with my stitching or a book? At least I have the AEF in Paris to look forward to - only 5 weeks to go and Kirby and I will be there - we are a little excited - can you tell?

I am going to work on Jane Rees later today - thank heaven for Ottlites and magnifiers!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Hasn't the weather been terrible? The last time it was sunny here was Christmas Eve, 2 weeks ago now. Today we've had sleet but the weekend forecast is for sun - hope you get some too.

    How nice for you to win a giveaway!
    Oh Paris - that should be just so wonderful. Have a great trip.

    Yes, it will, Carol, get out the Florida pictures and have a little yearn - or maybe not, might tip you right over, lol! Sorry, only teasing, I get SAD too and it is no fun. I'm also trying to take pics of my Crazy 15starts so far and it is a just too depressing light and they will look miserable! Nobody is going to believe I have started without proof! Looking forward to seeing Sew Lavender. Lots of love.

    Congrats on your win. Everything looks great. It's overcast and dreary here today, so I know how you feel.

    What a wonderful giveaway you won!

    Things have been gloomy in my end of the world as well for weeks! I can't even remember when the last time was that I wore sunglasses!

    Hope you've got some sun today Carol. It's lovely up here, the sun has been shining so DH and had a walk along the seafront this morning. It was chilly but so nice.
