Sunday... and we have a WINNER

Well I couldn't wait to get here and blog. So much to say about this weekend. Katie has been here and gone and life is getting back to normal, if that is even a word to describe my life, lol.

I hope she had a good time, even though I practically starved her and Adam tried to wake her up at 7am by playing rooster sounds. I am just about old enough to be her mother, but we still got along great. She's wonderful. Keep your eyes out you never know if she will be flying into your town next. LOL

Here are a couple pictures I took today.

Adam modeling the Checkerboard section of the next VJG afghan, but wait who's that smiling face in the background in her jammies???
Nana!!! Help me!!! Yes even in this torture he still had time to wave to the camera. LOL

Katie, Hanna and Adam all admiring the finished projects on Ravelry.

Katie O on the left and my sister Dayna on the right, this is right after we had a wonderful lunch at a local diner.

And of course Hannah had to also have a picture with just her and Katie. Both the kids too a liking to her right away. It was wonderful. I told her she should fly out here every couple of months just for a play date.

Before lunch we went to AC Moore and did a little craft shopping and after lunch we went back home and had a little craft party. We all made some animals. I made this fish, Katie made a turtle which I am sure she will blog, and Hannah made a horse.

Funny thing about Hannah's horse. She had maybe 1/3 of the plastic beads arranged on the grid and then decided to go to church with her sister, afraid her cats would knock her beads off we covered it with a lid from the bowl of beads. Perfect solution until Dayna decided to clean the beads on the table and pushed the lid out of the way and totally ruined Hannah's hard work, well we had to keep this a secret from Hannah, we were laughing so hard. You should have seen the face of horror Dayna had when she saw what she had done. So they all left and Katie and I tried to re-create the work so Hannah wouldn't notice. We only had like 5 minutes cause we had to get to the airport, so it was crazy, and we were laughing so it was hard to get those tiny beads on the grid. If I had the time and energy I'd go into more detail but it was a good time.


I did a random number drawing for last weeks contest winner, we had 42 posts over the 5 days and #29 was the winner... and guess who that was??? SHELLY!!! Finally after all these months of contests she finally won one. Congrats Shelly and I will be sending the needles to you hopefully Monday.

Now Monday I will do a special drawing for the friends who linked my contest from their blogs, so you'll see that tomorrow I think.

OK I guess that's about it for now, I am a little tired. Walking around AC Moore etc. took a lot out of me. And it's church tomorrow so I better get some beauty sleep.

Have a wonderful day,

PS Goodnight Katie, hope you have a comfy bed tonight and not a yucky couch. LOL

Sure sounds like you had a fun weekend :) The fishie is adorable. You won't believe it, but yesterday when we were straightening out our basement I cam across our set (eons ago my boys use to make things with it...still have tons of beads left)...wasn't sure whether or not to get rid of it, but now I'm definitely keeping it. I'd love to make a fish like yours. Hope you don't mind me being a copy cat ;)

Congrats Shelly!!
Kathy, it's great to hear that you had such a fun time! And a trip to AC Moore too!! Cool!

I'm just taking a short break from watching the race and crocheting. Did you see the new Casey Kahne commercial? It's really cute. Can't leave during commercials because you'll miss the great commercials. lol
