My Giveaway Winnings!

Hi blogging friends, I hope you 
all are having wonderful weather,
it has been just beautiful here for
a couple weeks, now....Got lots of
rain on the weekend, though.

I wanted to show you all the
wonderful things I have won in
giveaways and thank them all
again, for their generosity.

First of all, I won a lot of craft
things over at The Crafter's 
Nestled Nook Forum. I was sure
surprised, because I didn't think
I was entered!  Here are the 
wonderful things I was lucky 
enough to win!

All these wonderful items, above
are from Deb Turner, she started
the forum, so if you haven't been 
on there, you need to go check it
out, there are a lot of ideas and 
tutorials posted on the forum.
Click here to take you there.

 All the wonderful crafting supplies
in the picture, above are from Kay
Wigginton, she picked out some
great items for crafting, too! Oh, I 
want to mention that Kay and her
husband have been doing some 
wonderful wooden bowls, trenchers,
game boards and more, so go check
out their fb site, click here to go to
it and when you get down to where 
it says February, click on that and
you will see the trenchers and bowls
that Jerry has been making, they 
are awesome! Tell them that
Karen sent ya!

And, I got all these craft items from
Libby Bryant, she makes some 
wonderful candles and in this bunch
of craft goodies, she sent me some
awesome smelling tarts! You can 
check out her blog, here.

I want to thank all you ladies, 
again, you sent me wonderful 
crafting supplies!

Then I won this cute heart on 
a spring from Angel Bug Prims!
She gave it away to celebrate her
birthday!....Hey, I thought you 
were supposed to get presents for
your birthday, not give away 

And lastly, I won this cute little 
bunny in a flower pot on the PAFA
Spring giveaway!  Lisa of A Stitch
in Time, donated it for the giveaway.
I can tell you that this is the only 
bunny that I have! You would think,
by looking at this picture that he 
might be good sized, but he is sitting
in a 2 1/2" pot!  I don't know how
Lisa has the patience, if she made 
the little bunny, he sure is cute 
and I love his big feet!

I guess this post got really long,
so if you stayed with me this long,
I thank you, also!

I need to get something started,
that I wanted to do, earlier....So,
I am getting off here and getting
at it!  

Something else, I want to add,
I won't be posting the collectibles
on here, that I intended on posting
because I found out, I am able to 
get a booth at the antique mall, so
I will be taking it all there, so 
sorry if you were looking for some
thing that I will be selling.

Thanks for stopping by!

I Got It All Hooked!

Good afternoon, blogging
friends!  I finally got the little 
rug done, except for binding
 and pressing it....Now that I see it,
in this picture, I think I will
tear out the left edge and redo 
it....It was done with some of
the wool, that I didn't like...
Picky, picky, picky.....

I am hooked,
I love this craft and I now have
ideas for 6 more!
I got a wonderful rug hooking 
book on ebay, but I think it will
take me months to do one of 

I am sorting things that I need to
get rid of so, I will get those things
on here later on.....I can't believe
how much stuff I have around here!

Thanks for stopping by!

Making Progress

Hey everyone, I don't know 
what the problem was with 
the last post, but I hope you
all got to read it, about our
friend, Lorna. She posted 
this morning, so go check 
out her post, if you haven't
done so.

I have been working on my 
little rug/candle mat at night 
and am making progress.
I was in Hobby Lobby and I 
found this stand for my hoop
and it works great!

 I love hooking and I have
already designed 3 more to do.

I don't like the shape of the red
and gray band on the left side, so 
I will probably change it up some
and I hope to get it all done in the 
next couple days.
I hope you all have a great week 
and thanks for stopping by.

Update On Our Blogging Friend, Lorna!

This is the 4th time I have 
attempted to post this about
Lorna, I don't know what is
going on, but I am trying it
again, without her picture.

I got to looking on someone's 
blog and it did not show this 
post in their blog roll, it was 
still showing the rug hooking 
post....I have noticed that in
my dashboard, it will show a
new post from a blogger and 
when I click on it, it will 
say that it does not exist, Have
any of you had that problem?
Let's see if this works!
I posted this on Wednesday!
Hey everyone, I just want to let
you all know that I just talked 
to Lorna, of Live Oak Primitive
Peddler.  She saw the specialist
in Dallas, yesterday and he did
surgery on her shoulder this
 morning and she is doing great!
She had about 80% range of 
motion in her arm, while she 
was in surgery....I forgot what 
joint it was, that he said was 
probably the problem, anyway
he said most doctors over look it.
She is waiting for him to come
by to talk to her since the surgery.
She will either get out of the 
hospital, later today or tomorrow
morning.....She is grateful for 
all your prayers and she will 
let you all know the details when
she gets home....I am so happy
for her, I was hoping to get to see
her this week, but she will be
heading back home, soon...I had
so much fun with her when we got 
to meet up for a bit, last February...
"To know her is to love her"
that is what I say!

I want to thank you all for praying
for her, also...She is one sweet lady!

Blessings to you all~Karen
