A winner, a finish, a weekend ...

Thanks everyone for your prayers and thoughts for Cheryl .. it was a very nice memorial service .. she still has a lot ahead of her, but a nice supportive group of friends to help her along the way. Lisa and I arrived home Friday night .. it was really nice having someone to spend the 3 hour drive with. Got up Saturday morning to a long list of errands, staring with a haircut/color .. but I got them all done, even in the most incredible rain squall I've seen in a long time! Lisa came over in the late afternoon to work on blankets .. yea I do see a lot of Lisa, especially during the holidays! lol .. so, we spend about 4 hours working on blankets and were very excited to get 4 of them done! and my fingers didn't fall off from cutting all those blankets! lol. Saturday night we just vegged and watched Lucky Me, cute movie but predictable.

Sunday I finished my HIH's Thanksgiving Bird .. very fast stitch .. and I think he's quite cute. I'm not sure when or how I'll finish him .. maybe I'll try a pinkeep.

Sunday morning was grocery shopping and then home to watch all the pre-race stuff for the last Nascsar race of the season. Oh and Matt (my favorite driver) dominated the race and won! WTG Matt *smile* .. now what ever will I do with my sundays? lol It was a good sports Sunday for us .. the Seahawks won too! (football).

After the race we headed over to my dad's house to celebrate my sil's 50th birthday and my neice's 12th birthday .. lots of laughs, way too much food and the girls were spoiled with gifts from all of us *smile*

And just in case you think I've forgotten .. I have winner in my blogaversary drawing ... it's SALLY!! I'll be putting together a little package for you Sally .. I do have your address and will let you know when it goes in the mail so you can look for it :)

Thank you everyone for your comments about my blog and my blogaversary .. I really have enjoyed this year with my blog and look forward to my 2nd year blogging.

Hope everyone had a great weekend too!!

I'm grateful for busy but productive weekends ...

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend Cheryl's parents. It is hard enough to lose a parent, but to lose both so close together would be incredibly hard to bear.

Sounds like you had a very busy weekend, but fun and productive. Congratulations on finishing so many blankets, I'll look forward to seeing pictures of them.
