Secret Stitching

Hi all!  I have been doing some secret stitching for the past couple of weeks so I don't have any new stitchy pictures to show you.  I did start on my LHN November sampler this week and I am really enjoying the motifs in this one.  I did however receive some wonderful mail this week that I want to share with you.

I was the lucky winner of Jennifer's (Confessions of a Serial Starter) after market giveaway.  Just look at all the wonderful things that arrived in my mailbox.
Thank you so much Jennifer for such a generous giveaway!  I love everything I received and feel very fortunate to have had my name drawn out of 121 entries.  I promise I will put it all to good use.  :o)

Then, I was the winner of Annette and Missy's Day 9 of their 31 Days of Halloween giveaway.
This is such a fun package of Halloween goodness.  Annette made the snap bag and the beaded fob and they are just perfect.  Thank you ladies for offering such fun giveaways and cute prizes.

And then...I know it just seems like the good times keep coming and I am loving every minute of it so please indulge me for a moment...LOL  My dear friend Norma sent me the cutest ghost girl to add to my Halloween tree.  I know she is a girl because of the pearl trim she is wearing.  :o)  Thank you so much Norma!   I think I might need to find a bigger Halloween tree for next year.
I just can't believe how lucky I was to have won these two giveaways back to back.  I also entered and won Pumpkin's Stitch Pink giveaway and am looking forward to receiving it in the mail.  I have called and checked the JoAnn's in my area and they do not have the Stitch Pink Accessories so I was very happy to have won Pumpkin's drawing.  I was a little late this year but if she organizes another Breast Cancer Fund blog for next year I will be contributing along with her to this very worthy cause.  It seems every time I turn around someone is touched by this terrible disease in some way. 

I think I have quite enough to keep me busy for a while thanks to the generosity of all my blogging friends and this needlework blogging community.  You are all the best!  I plan to stay away from the giveaways for a while and hope to offer another one of my own next month. 

I hope you are all enjoying a fabulous week!  We are over the hump now and looking forward to the weekend.  :o)
