"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." —Hebrews 12:2-3

We Have A Winner!

Good morning everybody! How are you today? Things are going well here. It is cool and a bit rainy here. You may have noticed I don't use the Random Generator when I chose my winners. Well, I just prefer it the old fashioned way, picking a winner out of a hat, or poodle coin purse. ;) I have noticed a few have had their cats pick a winner. I thought, hey, Mabel can do that! So, it may have taken 3 attempts, she is just too clever.
On the third try we had a name dangling from little Mabel's poodle ear. A WINNER!!! =)
Hooray for Jane! Jane's comment was: Such a pretty little baby stitch and skin tone looks just right to me. Happy 18th to your Son, hope your celebrations went well, the cake looks fab! Would love a chance of winning your extra magazine, it's like trying to find gold-dust here in the UK!!! Take Care Jane x
I am waiting for Jane to contact me and then off goes the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Ornament Issue. =)

I made two of the three gifts I was working on. They are on their way to their new owners. These two ladies do not know this. I have pictures, I just will have to wait a few more days til I share them with you. I am working on the third gift, so no pictures to share there either. Next, I will be sewing a fall decoration for our home. Always so much to do, right?!?

I finished reading Mondays With My Old Pastor by Jose Luis Navajo. This was a book borrowed to me by my FIL. It is a book about renewing our spiritual life with God. Getting our priorities straight. It was pretty good. I am now reading A Place Of Remembrance by National Geographic. This book was a gift from my in-laws. They just bought it on their trip to New York. They flew out for a long weekend to see Ground Zero and a few sights. The memorial is extremely moving they say. They book is completely on the memorial. It is a very good book.

Have a great day in the Lord my friends! And a big welcome to my new friends. =)

Stitching and praying,

Congrats to Jane.
Maybe I should have one of the neighbors pooches pick my winners. Maybe not. They would probably eat half the bowl before I could pry a name out of their jowls!


Jane said...

Clever clever Mabel, tell your Mom ~ Jane says extra treats for me!
So happy to be your winner Vickie, I shall put the magazine to very good use, email on its way with address details xxx

Well done Jayne. I had a chuckle about Mabel's ear.

Glad to report that Poppy is much improved. Wishing you a good weekend.
