Give Away, Day 10...The Big Guy is Coming Soon!!!

I made it through yesterday! 24 hours of being in my PJ's crying every time I opened a Christmas card.  My sister always sends out one of those family photo cards and she warned me that the one she was sending included mom on her last visit.  Even knowing it was coming didn't prepare me for seeing it...((sigh))  What do they say...time heals all wounds...or better yet a great cup of coffee and a fun Give Away!!!  Enzo was such a sweetie, just hanging out with me and agreeing to ball chasing down the driveway while I stood in the garage...I really did not go outside all day! LOL

This morning I am upright, dressed, makeup on...and have a full day scheduled of "have too's" ...and I started it with a great cup of cafe mocha! YUM!


Coffee consumed I am ready to announce what the dog dish revealed!!!!  Stray Stitches who said, "Take care of yourself!  What a darling pillow.  I would love the opportunity to win the pattern.  I am a regular follower :)

Remember how I said that the 23rd was going to be a big Give Away day (along with the one on Christmas Day) to commemorate by parents wedding anniversary...well here it is!!!  The 12 Days of Christmas included in 6 patterns by Brandywine Designs !!!!  You must leave a comment and be a registered follower (I am still looking for that #300 before 2012...such a nice #)  This pattern can be done in any applique method...or wool???


Enjoy a little love from Dean!

  13. What a fabulous giveaway.:0)
    I am so pleased today is a better day for you. I know how hard it is sometimes to even want to get out of bed and face the day when you are sad. I read some advice a while back, it was " No matter how bad you feel, " Get Up! Dress Up! and Show Up!"
    Sending you xmassy hugs from across the pond, Sandy.
