Monday- And The Winner Is... ME and YOU

Week one is over already so I MUST pick a winner. I LOVE giving away prizes. I had a total of 71 comments last week over 5 days, not too bad. I called up "Regis" and asked him to pick a number randomly between 1 and 71. I did not give any clues to who was what number, I MUST be fair now. But thank you to all those who bribed made such nice flattering comments in hopes to increase your chances. You'll know if it worked when you win, LOL. Just kiddding.
I ordered my prizes from Bea's Etsy store this time around, she was having a sale and I couldn't pass it up. These are the items I bought and received in the mail today. The yarn sorry is for ME. It's name was OOAK, it was calling out to me... OO AK, could it have been any clearer?
The other 5 pictures are homemade stitch markers, and well I kinda want to keep them all so I have no clue what I will use for the prizes now. No even though I love them I will still give them away... Unless you don't happen to be a knitter with a need for stitch markers and then I will make you something special, everyone wins. And that includes me cause I'll get to keep a set of stitch markers. LOL. Oh Regis, # blah is not a knitter can you pick that one, please?
Oh you are wanting to know who won this past week. Oops sorry I got carried away, cause I am almost light enough now to actually be carried without the help of the fire department.
THE WINNER IS DEB ... And I am glad to see Regis pick her. She has been away from Blogland for a little bit caring for her father whom she loves dearly. A selfless act like that should not go unrewarded. So Deb you have your choice of the 5 sets of stitch markers pictured above. Just email me or PM me on Ravelry or post in the comment section which set you'd like. But you still need to at least get me your mailing information, LOL
Well what shall I do for today. How about a cute photo that could use a caption... are you up for that? Look at the picture below and if a funny caption comes to mind post you thoughts in the comment section. If you can't think of anything simply enjoy the ones before you and after you for that matter and just make any comment at all. This will get you an entry for this weeks contest.

So finally here is the self portrait I mentioned I took in McDonalds. I figured you were all tired of seeing pictures of me so that's why I didn't post it. I wish the camera made me look as slim as I felt in that shirt. As you can see it's too big and was falling off my shoulders, but I am going to have it taken in so I can wear it for a while longer.

So there you are, now have a wonderful evening, and a great nights sleep. Sweet Dreams and make sure to come back tomorrow.

LOVE it! Doesn't it feel great to wear clothes that are too big? (Not that I've experienced this for awhile!)

And love the OO AK, just for you. Too cute!

"It wasn't me, really.....the cats did it. They were trying to tie me up and hold me hostage. HONEST"

Trudy said...

Kathy, you're clothes are too big for you! Very cool. I wish I could say that about mine. Giggles.

magnoliasntea said...

Don't look at me like that!

Claudia said...

wish I could come up with a caption, but I'm really sick and I can't even think straight.

But I'm so glad for you that clothes are getting bigger!!!! *hugs*

Unknown said...

Congrats Deb. Hope all is going well with your dad.

Doggies says "But I'm trying to roll the yarn up just the way you do."

MRS MJW said...

Lovely stitch markers. I made some once out of paper clips and beads...nothing like these.

Turtle said...

congrats deb! You look great in the pic Kat. (sorry, no witty captions from me today, been a rough day here on the homestead)

Renna said...

Kathy, you are beautiful. I can only imagine how wonderful it must feel to see yourself changing this way.

Congratulations to Deb! :-)

Hmm..I'm lousy at coming up with photo captions, but I'll give it a shot. How about "the cat did it!". ;-)

Libby's Library said...

Wonderful smile...wonderful lady...wonderful success!

Caption..."Humans - they have no idea, what this stuff is for!"

hakucho said...

Wow, what a nice surprise :) Thank you so very much. All of the stitch markers are beautiful, very hard to choose....but if I must I think I would love to have the ones on right, 2nd row down. They look bluish/green. Thanks. I'll message you through rav with all my info. It will be a treat to use such lovely stitch markers. I'm used to the old plastic ones. These will be very luxurious :)

I think the caption should say "I didn't do it, honest!"

You do look lovely and so happy. Yay for your clothes being too big...that must be a great feeling :)

katerina said...

My suggestion for the caption is:
"The cats said it was EASY to learn to knit!"
Can't wait to see what OO AK turns into!
