I Won Something

I read a lot of blogs by other people who, unlike me, actually have interesting lives, wonderful creativity and talent, and sometimes both. I'm not sure how I first found this blog but probably followed some reference to quilting, sewing, crocheting, maybe knitting. Penny not only dabbles in all these things like I do, but she finishes things and even creates her own patterns. Not to mention hiking and taking beautiful photographs . She has an Etsy shop too for selling the things she makes.

Don't forget Lydia's shop either. She amazes me with the things she does. They both make me tired.

I don't enter a lot of giveaways just for the purpose of winning something I have no interest in. If I really like the give-away, I'll enter if it doesn't take me 30 minutes to fill out the information. In this case, one of the things you had to do was enter your name - I could handle that! For another chance you could tell how you learned to crochet and for another mention this giveaway on your blog. Since I forgot to do that earlier, I'm doing it now, especially since I won the pattern for this:

Half the people who read this (all 5 of you) will be scratching their heads and saying, "Okaaay." But the other half will appreciate this for being totally cute and useful. Maybe I'll get the yarn and work on it at the beach this weekend.

Good storm is coming. I'm excited but need to work in case of lightening later.


  1. That is a really cute bag! Looks like the one that Purl Bee is offering for a workshop this month!! YAY for you!
    Thanks for the shout out too! Check out Jacob's blog ( I just posted some pics of the items I had at the July 4th festival. It went well! I sold a few things, had fun, and made some great contacts.
    No job yet, but I did find out today that I passed my teaching subject content test. Woohoo!!

  2. Wow, Lydia. You outdid yourself. Everything is just my style - especially the Little Tiger one. And Jacob is precious - just a beautiful little boy. I know ya'll have so much fun!

    Hopefully, I'll be able to shop again one day.

    I think I should check out that workshop - this pattern may surpass what I know about crocheting!

    How about if I do it in camouflage with fishing lures and fox tails hanging from it? It's the color, right?
