WHOOP-WHOOP!

I am the proud owner of this: (!!!!) I've always wanted one of these...it's a spool cabinet...so I'll be able to place all my DMC threads in here. Isn't it exciting? I love it!!!!!! And thanks to my DH...I'm the proud owner of one. It will arrive at my house on Tuesday Aug. 14! HURRAY!!!

And WOWZERS! I didn't know that so many people read my blog! I have over 80 comments on my contest post...I think I may have to draw multiple winners now....I'm thinking about it, as I have a LOT of exchanges and RR's to stitch, but the response has been somewhat overwhelming and I didn't realize that I had so many silent followers! I'm shocked...honestly....shocked! So, heck the odds of someone winning may actually increase, because like I said, I'm thinking of stitching 3 things for people to win. *maybe* I've got to see how far I get on my deadline stitching this weekend.

Speaking of weekend....this is the last one for my dear children before they have to go back to school....(!) That will leave me and dear Ellie to rattle around this big house by ourselves...oh, dear what SHALL we do? (LOL!)

Until next time....have a great weekend!

  2. What a gorgeous cabinet. I'm horribly jealous!

    You really shouldn't have been surprised at the response you got you know - you're always so kind and leaving nice comments on other people's blogs, it's only natural that they'd respond in kind! :-)

    That is totally awesome! Funny thing, I'm about to mail you out something we discussed, and I included some copies of vintage clipart concerning threads-I hadn't seen this first. Yes, E.S.P.!
    My son is going to PSU for his junior and senior years, (3+ hours from here) on the 24th. Speak about an empty house. It's going to be strange.
