Hello Dear Friends.  As we can see, I'm lacking for a clever title (as usual.)  I'm stating the obvious...I have stuff to share.

The other gift shawls arrived in time for a couple of special birthdays and I'm happy to say that both recipients were surprised and pleased :)

These two shawls have now arrived at their respective homes.  Gifts that were "just because".  No special reason except that they are both treasured friends (who happen to share my love for red!)

Ventura Wrap by Rebecca Hill

needles:  sz 11

And I know I'm a few days late, but the winner of the Leafy Washcloths is~~Barbara at Mainely Stitching!  Congrats Barbara (email coming) and thank you everyone for visiting!

It's Friday...Have a Great One!!!

Congrats Barbara for winning!! And your shawls are gorgeous!!! I love them. Plus your thrift shop find is cute. I wish I had the legs to wear something that short, but my knees are both messed up and misshapen.

Beautiful red shawl! Something like this can be casual or very dressy. The color is so pretty!

Enjoy your cute skirt! Isn't it a good feeling when you find such a great bargain!
