Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Thank you to all that commented and also those that left comments to enter the drawing. I let random number generator do the picking. I will post the winner at the end of this blog post.

How was everyones 4th weekend? I sure do hope everyone had an enjoyable time celebrating the Independance of this great nation. I had one heck of a week. My work closed for 8 days which gives all of us time to take vactactions. I spent the first half of my vaction at home spending time with my husband, getting sun and enjoying the lake.

The other half was spent at my family reunion. Every year my Dads sister hosts a reunion at her house. And let me tell ya it is a full house :) They have 11 brothers and sisters, plus all their chidren and their childrens children. Before my Dads mother passed away she asked that the reunions be continued and my Aunt has done a fine job. It is alot of work getting a party ready for 80+ people. I admire her so much, really all my Aunts and Uncles. They are just the sweetest people I know. We always have such a great time catching up, laughing till we cry, telling stories and just being with one another. It it something I look forward to every year but sadly it always passes to quickly.

Saturday morning when I woke this is the view I was greeted with.
Southwest Virginia is home to me even though I was not born there. Gives me such a peaceful feeling.

While I was there I did have a small window to stitch. This is To The Beach by Cathy from Hands On Design
It was a special release for PALS last year. I changed the word "thee" to "Me" I am thinking of making a zippered bag and puting it on that. Well who am I kidding I am thinking of having Faye make me a zippered bag LOL

When I got home from Virgina I was greeted by my In laws they will be here till Friday so the fun continues. Which is why I am a day late in posting the wimmer of the Cinnamon Hearts chart. So the winner is.............. Fog City Dweller Valerie I will emailing you shortly :)

I thank you all again for the kind comments. I enjoy reading your posts. I hope you have a wonderful evening.
((HUGS)) to you all!!!!

  3. Love that view! My husband is going to a reunion this weekend in the upper east Tn area. They also go over into Virginia.

Saturday was the Fillmore Festival. Awesome weekend! :)
