Giveaway win and stuff

Hi everyone! So sorry to hear about all the snow in the Northeast, stay safe and warm, and please don't send it my way!! We have been having beautiful weather but chilly during the nights. Halloween will be nice for the kids...high of 65.

I recently won Pat's giveaway over at her blog and oh my word!! This pin cushion is just beyond beautiful!! So much detail on it. Didn't she do great work on it? She also sent me a vintage cross stitched towel, a wonderful beaded bracelet (beautiful also), and a sweet little french note card to use. Thanks so much Pat! I love everything!






Well I did have some pictures of some goodies that I bought at the last estate sale but I can't find them!! I had gotten 2 pin cushions, some cute hat pins, a granite pitcher and I think that was it.

Here is an updated picture of my sewing machine display


Well I believe that's all I have for you today. It's been pretty boring around here, haven't done anything but stitch. So my next post should have all new cross stitched pin keeps for you to see. Oh, I did pick up another merchandising job. So now that's 3 jobs that I work. The new one is weekly so that is even better. I have also decided that the pack of cigarettes that I opened this morning will be my last. Yup...I'm quitting. I gotta!! Wish me luck on this cuz I'm gonna need it. I've done it before so I can do it again!!

Take care everyone, have a wonderful week and a happy Halloween!!

I love your wins. Your display is really nice. I would love merchandising. I love to help stage for my girls' shows. It is the one part of having a shop that I miss. Good luck on the quitting smoking. You CAN do it!

Hi Brenda :-) Wow, that is a pretty pin keep. It'll be sittin' pretty in your home.
Well, I'm so glad to hear you can live without smoking my friend. Quit that and beat the streets with that added job and you'll be feeling brand new in no time.
Best wishes~Carol

Love your new goods! The sewing table looks great.

Congrat son Quitting! I quit in 2008 (after 18 years of smoking a pack a day) and it was the best thing I ever did! You can do it!!!!

Happy Halloween to you!
