Giveaway Winners!

My fingers REALLY aren’t working this morning.  Instead of typing “Giveaway Winners” , I typed“Gimpaway Winders”
Good thing I caught that because the Giveaway Winners might feel insulted instead of happy.
The winner of the “Snow” Penny rug is the new blogger Roberta English from Ohio.
The winner of the Lacey Heart Pinkeep is
Barb of A Corgi to Quilt By.
Congratulations ladies!  Send me your address and I’ll pop your things in the mail!

In other news…..
for all those who’ve ordered my newest pattern, “CatTails of Love”  I’ll be mailing those out to you today.  Thank you all for such a terrific response.  I really appreciate the kindness and your orders. :)
Brenda, at Pumpkin Patch Primitives, has the “Scarecrow Jack in the Pumpkin Patch” candle mat,  kitted up with all the materials needed to make this candle mat.  Just go to her website and click on the pattern picture to order.

Here’s what I’ve been working on the last few days. ….

I don’t intend to make this into a pattern.  It’s just something that’s been in my head to make.  I’m really in this neutral tone on tone mood, again.   I get this urge every year to do taupes. 
I decided to try quilting the wool by adding a layer of soft cotton batting under it.   It needs some leaves, and I dyed some wool a nice taupey greenish color, but I’m just not really liking how it looks. Perhaps the green isn’t the right color or perhaps the leaves are too small … or perhaps I just need to just look at it for a while and hope an idea comes to me.  I’ll keep this sitting on the dining room table for a while and I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
I plan to keep this one for myself, btw.  I’ll be sure to show it once it’s completely finished.
The grandson is feeling much better now.  He still has coughing fits because it’s really difficult to get a 3 year old to understand that running, jumping and tumbling are not good therapy for lungs that are trying to heal.  But at least he’s breathing better and not feverish.  Thank you all for the well wishes.  

Happy Day everyone!

Hi Cath! I love you new penny rug. Too bad you won't be making it into a pattern. I just wanted to send you a like to a new Indigo Junction pattern, they are so cute. They remind me very much of your fine work! http://www.indygojunctioninc.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=870

BTW I am working on creating my own blog and hope you might like to view it once I've got it up and running.

Ta Ta for Now and Have a Great Day. Glad to hear Kaiden is getting better every day.

How adorable! I scrolled down as I was reading and when I saw the picture my breath caught in my throat, it's just so nice. (Of course, it could have just been a cough coming on.) Just kidding.

Oh, I missed out, but congratulations to the winners. I love it when new bloggers win!

What about white leaves? I really like the heart with all the white so maybe that would work? Don't mind me, I'm on a white terror right now.

Vacation? Sick of snow? You know, stuck in Vermont with three more months of snow, that makes me snicker just a little. I'd go to Florida and walk and walk and walk around Epcot. Just because there it's easy to stay outside all day and there are lots of people from everywhere in the world to chat with there. On top of snow, we have no people interaction here. NONE!!! Oh, my husband is occasionally here. FLORIDA!!! (plus I used to live there and it's friendly, warm, and sunny, the total of cold (shoulder) Vermont.

Cathy,
I like the green leaves! It gives just a hint of color to brighten it up. Maybe a couple different shades of green would be more to your liking? Or add some "berries" to go with the leaves.
