And the moment you have been waiting for (I know this because I was getting anxious emails yesterday!)….  and the winner is… BONNIE LESLIE from Chesley Ontario! Bonnie your package is being mailed this morning and should be in your mail box sometime early next week. I hope you have fun hooking your little candle mat… And I want to thank you all for your lovely comments and helpful words – I am overwhelmed by this caring thoughtful community.

Yesterday was our guild’s final get together for the year 2013 – we celebrated with a delicious pot luck lunch.  Even Gord got to participate from afar as some of the food found its way back to our house. We held a hand made ornament exchange – the ornies were all so unique and fun and I got TWO. Plus we had wonderful show and tell so I have attached a few pictures from our show and tell (no pictures of the food because drooling into your keyboard is not a good thing!):

Margery hooked my Midnight Beaver pattern – it is wonderfully primitive…

    Congratulations Loretta on a great little project that brought so many rug hookers together across borders in a spirit of generosity, and congrats to Bonnie. I love the diversity of rugs above, and especially love those Alana designs, and the kids artwork! See you sooooon.

  3. Want to see your finished gift Bonnie, lucky girl! Love the kids paintings-they are so unafraid, they jump right in and do it. Fantastic.
