A Couple of Giveaways

Sorry I have been away so much recently. Our youngest daughter was married yesterday. Had been concentrating on getting the yard, house and food ready for that celebration. The wedding was held in Victorian house in the older part of town, and went off pretty well. It was held in the gazebo. DH told me that DD went through a box of Kleenex before he brought her down theaisle. The bridesmaids came out, and I looked at matron of honor, DD1 and she had tears in her eyes, and I got teary, with no Kleenex. I was able to lose 27 pounds before the wedding and got a wonderful dress. It was a great day, and a great weekend visiting with family and friends. The last of the company went home yesterday, so DH and I have the house back to ourselves.

Hope to get stitching this afternoon after work. I plan to take my stack of beads, theads and everything else where it usually resides by my comfy chair and get stitching again. Also have some sewing to do in my sewing room for granddaughter Kyleigh's BD on Sunday. She wanted me to embroider some motifs on a couple of more hooded sweatshirts. I also plan to make her a dress or maybe 2.

This morning, came across a couple of giveaways:

Candace is celebrating her 100th post with a giveaway.

Lise is celebrating her 100th post giveaway.

Cheryl at Polkadots & Ric Rac is also having a giveaway celebrating her 1 year blog anniversary.
