Look what the mailmail brought me!!!!!

I'm so excited.  Heather let me know that I had won a drawing.  I couldn't believe it.  I've never won!  And then the package arrived.  She sure did spoil me.  Just look.....

She sent me a nice note, a storage box, a note pad, material and a pattern. 

The material is called "Jubliee".  Heather, this is kind of scary - can you read my mind? 

Just the other day I was looking through my patterns.  Actually I was looking for a gingerbread boy or girl for this month's ornament.  Didn't find that - yet!  But I did find another project I want to do.  Except that I didn't have the right color material.  I sat there saying to I dare let him know I want to buy more material.  Let me just add of our cars died so right now we are using one car and usually we are together.  He drops me at work and picks me up.  So not much gets by him these days.  As I've mentioned before he thinks I should do one project at a time so I usually get "the look" when I flutter from one thing to another.  He's a wonderful guy but he just doesn't get my fluttering around.  So I sighed to myself and put the magazine up.  But now - now I can pull it out again!!!!!  I've never stitched on "Jubliee" before so I'm looking forward to it and it's the perfect color!

And the pattern!  Here's a close up:

Well that didn't turn out so well.  Sorry for the glare.  Isn't this amazing?  O.K.  I can't start this one now but soon!

Heather, thank you again for this lovely gift.  It certainly put a smile on my face.
