I'm *not* a loser, baby!
I won a contest over at Purls Just Wanna Have Fun - I left the 999th comment (with pleasure!). I love reading Marisol's adventures - and she has the most enviable stash ever. She posts regular enhancements that make me swoon. For my prize, she sent me some Vesper Sock Yarn (yes, coveted Vesper - wowza!) in Lovie, there could not be a more "Stacey" colorway - a neat felted bag pattern that I had admired on her blog and some home made cookies - I have already dipped into the cookies - so good. What are those teeny ones with red bits - gosh they are fabulous.
I also recently won a contest over at Knitterella - I have been remiss and have not posted about it before today. I got a whole variety package of her great knitting themes notecards - go buy some. She regularly updates her blog with the most incredible FO's.
Holy generous bloggers - thank you ladies for making my season a little brighter:)
Now, in case you haven't - please check out my little contest (scroll down to the previous post) - tell me about your lovie, the stuffed companions of your childhood. So far, I have been left breathless over the comments I have received - I feel like I am walking right down memory lane with a few of you - such thought, such true love for that bear or lamb. Meanwhile, I have been reading some of the entries in the Dirty Wow-Wow book - some make me giggle, some make me tearful - some delightful story-telling. And remember if you comment before noonish on the 26th there could be some yarn or a copy of the book in it for you:)
Lastly, my thought for the day - I was reading Susie's blog and she has written about "joy", feeling joy in your body - which fits like a glove for me today . I had the best yoga practice - it felt so good to have a quiet moment before the holiday insanity tries to kick in. I imagine yoga to be like "piling sandbags" - preparing for the storm, protecting *the house* (which is me) - I like visuals, yoga is good for that. Anyways, after practice, the small group of us shared some holiday insights - being accountable to yourself, avoiding others' toxicity, remembering the holidays are stressful, but finding time to enjoy some peace and serenity. I hope each and every one of you find a moment to enjoy the silence of the season. Thank you for stopping by and your continued support of my rambling. Bless you all!
