200 Follower Giveaway Winner

Good Morning my friends! I want to thank every one of you who prayed for and thought of our Mabel. Finally, yesterday morning she woke up with improvement. We are so very thankful for this. It will probably take a few more days til she is good as new. She is so very precious to us.♥
We have a winner for my 200 Follower Giveaway! Carol! I have emailed you Carol. As soon as I get your mailing address, your STITCH pen, your pattern and your bottle cap pincushion will be on their way! =)

Made Cinnamon Swirl Bread in the bread machine yesterday. It's gone. ;) A loaf of any bread I bake does not make it 24 hours with us. =)
I am doing the finishing on the piece that I designed my own pattern for. It turned out just how I wanted. It will be off to the post office this week. Making it's way across the ocean. And that is about all we are going to hear about it for quite a while. It is a mysterious thing this project. Something I have never done. Sorry but it must remain a secret until spring. @_@

I am working on my own scissors fob. Lots of pinks and purples, imagine that. ;)

Look what came in the mail yesterday!
 Barb had a giveaway with numerous gifts. This is what I received from her. Such a wonderful pattern. She was so generous to also send the linen. Thank you again Barb.♥

Guess what? I am having ANOTHER GIVEAWAY very, very soon! My First Blogoversary! So exciting friends. That is what makes it exciting!! YOU! ALL OF YOU! It is just so neat to have "met" so many new friends. What a wonderful adventure this blogging is. Thank you for sharing your world with me. Thank you for sharing part of my world. I am honored to have you as a friend.♥

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Glad to hear Mabel is feeling better, it is so sad when our fur babies are sick, and we can't explain the tablets will make you better!

I love hot bread, especially sweet breads that I can toast and have with tea. Now I'm hungry. HA!

Good news about Mabel and hope the improvement continues. It reminded me of taking our old Lab to the canine chiropractor. I';ve been thinking about getting the bread machine out and would love to try a cinnamon bread. Honey oatmeal is our favorite.

Siobhán said...

Awww, give Mabel some kisses and cuddles, and Duffy says to sneak her an extra treat, too. I'm so glad she's doing better!

Thank You for visting my blog and becoming a follower,You made me happy ! :)

And more happy I am to read that sweet Mabel is feeling better...

BBD pattern You have won is very pretty.
I have to say it was a pure Joy to me to found your blog -it is allways heartwarming to read stitching blogs written by a Christian lady but it was lovely to get know that you are even a Lutheran.
We are a minority Church ,only here in the Scandinavia there is many of us.

I wish you have good week including lots os stitchings and other little joys of our everyday life :)

Carol said...

What a wonderful way to start my week, Vickie--I am so happy to read that I've won your generous giveaway. Especially tickled to be the soon-to-be owner of one of your pretty bottlecap pinchushions :)

I've been away for most of the past week and am way behind on my blog reading. Do hope Miss Mabel is feeling 100% again by now--our hearts ache when our furry friends aren't at their best...

Off to email you now and thank you again!! I'm very excited!

Meari said...

Thanks Vickie and congrats to Carol!

Lynn said...

Oh Vickie, I'm so sorry to hear about Mabel! I'll say a little prayer for her and hope that she continues to improve daily. Our furbabies are so much a part of our families, aren't they?
Sorry I missed your giveaway but I did enjoy the photos of all of your Valentine stitching. Just wonderful!
It's no wonder your bread disappeared. It looks delicious!
