Good morning friends,it is my hope that today finds you well and in good spirits.There are only a few days left till Christmas arrives.Are you ready, can you feel the excitement? I would like to say that I am all squared away,that everything is ready but I am far from it.This week has found me down with a stomach virus that just won't quit, so there are no cookies baked, no candy made and the gifts, well I had to order them so they are yet to be wrapped.All that really doesn't matter because I have my family and friends and that is all that really counts.They understand as they are all adults,if I had a small child then I would probably be pulling my hair out.LOL!
The last couple of days we have had horrid winds,and rain.I looked outside the window this morning to see the apple tree had lost a couple of big limbs.I am grateful that is all the damage we have encountered.My thoughts and prayers are with those dealing with the winter storm and bad weather.
As the title of the post suggested,I have another wonderful win to share with you all.I have been so blessed of late to win some wonderful goodies from some very talented ladies.Teri of White Sheep Farm recently celebrated her birthday by having a giveaway with not one but four winners and I was one of the ladies chosen.Teri is such a lovely lady and shares many awesome tutorials on her blog so please take the time to check out her blog.I know that you will not be disappointed.I received such a wonderful box of homemade soaps and such.Really wish someone would invent a sniff button for the computer as the soaps smell out of this world.Here I will just let the pics tell the story.Thank you Teri,I love everything you sent!
Love that ginger!
Inside the bag
Two chunky wooden gingers
Look how pretty this soap is girls!I received three of them!
Thank you so very much Teri!
I also wanted to share a project that I finished a couple weeks back.I punched this stocking using an oxford rug punch.The stocking is made with overdyed red wool strips and wool yarn for the toe,heel and cuff.
I made a chunky braid to trim the edge of the stocking out of wool yarn.It turned out chunkier than I intended but it has kind of grown on me.
That is all for today.Be good to each other and enjoy the season.Hugs,Jen
