~ My Winnings, Pinkeep, Summer Decorating ~

Good gosh it's been hot as blazes here in Central Virginia! I think I heard on the news the other day that it has been one of the hottest Junes on record if not THE hottest! The heat does not agree with me, as many of you know I'm a lover of winter, put it together with the hot flashes I'm experiencing and it is NOT a good combo let me tell ya!! egads it's miserable!! Well enough complaining, on to better things....

In yesterday's mail I received my giveaway winnings from Kath WOOHOO!! Everything was made by her and is absolutely PERFECT! and the doll was an added bonus! it is the first doll she ever made all on her own and it is cute cute cute! Thank you SOOOO MUCH again Kath!! I love it all!!

Next I wanted to share the latest pinkeep I have made for myself! hey I'm on a roll! it was designed by Jenny of Country Rustic Primitives!
Lastly I wanted to let you know that I've updated my Picture Trail with lots of new pictures taken from around my home. There's a whole new album of Summer Decorating as well as newly taken pics of our Family Room. There's a link to it over there in my sidebar too. I know how much we all love pictures and I hope that you will enjoy mine!

Have a great Thursday, a happy Friday, and a joyous weekend! ♥

You lucky gal, you got some wonderful stuff from
Kath! I love your pinkeep, I
have gotten some stuff to start
cross stitching, just haven't
started it, yet. I hate the
heat, too....At 10:15, it was
already 90 degrees....Stay cool!

Hi, Janet ~
Awesome goodies from Kath, I love them all. Love your pinkeep, too. You are just a whiz at that cross stitching. Send some heat up north to us, though it finally did stop raining and the sun is out today. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Janet,
Wow what a lucky girl! Nice win. The little doll is sweet.
I'm just about ready to melt. We're traveling through Arkansas right now and I can't decide if it's really the heat or hot flashes! Probably both!
Wanna take a trip to Alaska with me? I'm tempted...

Hi, I just discovered your blog and I love it. I have a question. Did you use DMC for your pincushion? and if yes which colornumber is the red and blue? I love the feel so much. Thank you.
