Lucky Me!

I recently won the giveaway over at The Pumpkin Patch blog.  Marjorie sent me a real goody package.  There were two great pieces of linen, my favorite size needles, a wonderful Halloween chart(how could she know I love to stitch Halloween??),and the cutest pillow. Thank you so much Marjorie , for your generosity!!
My poor husband, the SBA(Super blogging assistant) has gotten a terrible cold.  The only good part of this is that we have had a very quiet week-end.  That has meant lots of reading and stitching, two things I really enjoy!!I finished reading The Tory Widow.  I love historical fiction and this is about a period I love, the Revolutionary War. There is a sequel so I can keep the story going! In the stitching realm,  I have finished the designs to the right on Penny America.  This has proven to be a very enjoyable stitch.  You have to change colors often but it's fun.
Yesterday we had a nice walk down memory lane.  We lived in Louisville , KY for 17 years.  Watching the Derby and hearing "My Old Kentucky Home" brought back many happy memories of our time in Louisville.
Well, thanks so much for reading my blog.  Have a wonderful week!!


 Here are my goodies from Marjorie.


 What a great little pillow!


I actually finished Justice after I took this photo. Now I'm working on the left side of the basket.

    Congratulations on the blog win. What beautiful things she sent you. The stitched piece is charming.
    Penny Rug is coming along well. I need to do some more patriotic stitching.
