It's a new week,

and I'm still behind with my blogging! Both posting and visiting. I hope to get back on track with my reading and commenting, it's so easy to get way behind with it!

Thank you everyone for your blogiversary wishes :) And straight from random.org...the winner is, Annemarie! Congratulations!

I received my Whitman's Tin from Becky. It really took my breath away when I unwrapped it. It's just so pretty! The pattern is lovely, the colors divine, and the stitching and finishing are absolute perfection! Thank you sooo much Becky, I absolutely adore it!!!


Doesn't it look perfect on my bedside table???


You know those mittens that were the hottest item at the Vancouver Olympics??? My sis has an extra pair and I've put them on my de-stash blog. These are brand new with tags so be sure to check 'em out!


WendyJo and I had a great time last week! She is such a sweetie. I took my camera, but didn't take a single pic. We're going to meet again tomorrow, one last time before she heads home. Maybe I'll remember some pics, lol ;)

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for all your great comments. I hope your week is off to a great start!

That Whitman Sampler tin is amazing. An odd bit of trivia..... Old Miss Whitman, the heiress to the candy company fortune, lived at the state mental hospital in my hometown in New Jersey!

Beautiful tin from Becky. She does the most beautiful things.
All your new scissors - how cool they are. and that bunny - just too sweet.

Annemarie said...

Okay, that really had my heart thumping, until I realised I hadn't had time to read blogs lately and I certainly couldn't remember reading about 2nd Blogiversaries, let alone entering my name for a draw and then I thought... hang on, is someone posing as me... and then I thought... there must be other girls called Annemarie in stitchy Blogland and then I checked and now I have a personality crisis because I was right and it wasn't me who won the giveaway, but worst of all, I never got to wish you a very happy 2nd Blogiversary! I will do that now: happy 2nd Blogiversary, Staci. I can't believe you've been delighting us with your amazing talent and sweetness for only two years. It seems like you've been with us much longer, and I hope you will *stay* with us for many more years to come.

Love the mitts. Pelle's got a pair, thanks to the wonderful Melissa!!!

Oh. And congratulations to Annemarie (the real one).

Virginia said...

I don't know what's happened, but I feel like my entire blogosphere has fallen off the shelf in the last two weeks, myself included.

Anyway, LOVE the tin. It's great.

Staci, just love the tin, it is so darling.

Need to chat with you about knitting socks for DH. I thought I would give it a try, but not sure how many stitches when using a heaver weight yarn!!

Have a great weekend.
