Laurie C

Your prize will be mailed shortly... Congratulations!!!!!!

Box from Robin -- picture included!

Robin aka Blaze LaFlame sent me this powerfully packed goodie box! I love this month's theme! I received a terrific scarf/hat pattern and two Big Skeins of lime green yarn to make them. She tucked in a wood crochet (have I mentioned I adore wooden hooks) in a size I didn't have, either! Also inside were some baking goodies ... a cute oven mitt, beautiful mug and lots of tea bags to help me stay warm. PLUS, the gem of it all, are some recipes from Robin's house to mine. I hope I didn't forget anything. Thank you so much!!

Thank you Shawnee!!!


My package arrived today! We had gone out to lunch & stopped by Barnes & Noble so the wee one could play w/the train table.
My package was waiting by my door when we got home & this is what was in it! Shawnee topped everything off w/ cute "trick or treat" tissue paper & underneath was a pattern for a felted pumpkin bag/trick or treat basket. The yarn to make the project, a Halloween mag (crafts, goodies & yummy treats!), a pumpkin pen, eyeball note pad, scary tape & the cutest felted bag which my 3 yr old has claimed for her dolls! She went prancing about w/ it on her arm & her little Disney Princess dolls in it!
Thanks again Shawnee! You are too sweet!
