And the winner is...

Hi Folks!

I know you've been patiently waiting for the results of the giveaway...well have no fear, the results are in and the winners are....

Charlene, who has won the chart and scissors with the fob!
Connie, who has won the limited edition Little House Needleworks "Where there is life" kit.

Congratulations ladies!!! Please e-mail me your addresses to tickledpinkone @ yahoo. co. uk and I'll get them in the mail as soon as possible!

Just a reminder, the winners names were picked from a hat by my son. I loved all the captions and it would have been too difficult to choose the caption that was my most favorite. I had such a giggle over all of them, you guys certainly are creative! Thanks so much for participating!! I hope you had as much fun as I did!! I know that many of you commented on the fact that you had, or were going to get your screenings. To those who haven't or are too afraid to go, please get checked, or at least perform your monthly self exam. Don't be afraid to go, it's a bit uncomfortable but not unbearable, and they have new tests now that don't involve "getting squished". Check with your doctor and see if you can have a sonogram instead! It's perfectly painless and it's better to catch these things early, trust me!!

I know I haven't answered e-mails in forever, or posted in quite some time, but things here have been insanely busy!! The past two days I've rushed around from morning until late at night. Most of it good fun (I have to say, I had a few rough days after my last chemo but I'm back on track now and back to my crazy schedule) as I've been spending time with my friends. My stitching buddies threw me a 50th birthday party...what a blast! If we had done nothing but stitch it would have been a fabulous birthday for me, but I was showered with cards and gifts. I'm sure this has been my absolute best birthday ever, thanks for celebrating with me. Here are a few pictures from the party. In case you can't read what is on the cake, it says "Oh No! The Big 50!!" (Thanks Sonya!! That oreo cake was the best!) Pat took the pictures, but she is camera shy and is always BEHIND the of these days though, I'm going to get a picture, Pat, so watch out! LOL

I've been stitching up a storm lately, finishing a lot of little kits I had lying around. I'm trying to clear up some of the stash and sort through things. Once the holidays are over, I'm going to haul out some big projects I've been wanting to work on, and I want a clean conscience! LOL Here are a few of my newest finishes.

Lastly,I attended a concert for the local High School last Thursday. Shaun Barrowes (an American Idol contestant) has benefit concerts "Live for music" for High Schools around the country. Students audition to have a solo during his concert, or to be backup singers. Shaun showcased a few students, but also the entire choir, select members of the band and dancers from the school. It was a fun evening. My friends daughter was chosen as one of the backup singers and is in the picture below, along with one of Shaun playing the piano. 75% of the proceeds of the concert went to the school arts department. I have to say I admire Shaun for giving back to the community in this way, and I hope he has a long and prosperous career.

Ok, off to get some other things done that has been let slip over the past few weeks. It's good to have some energy back! Thanks for participating in the giveaway, and keep checking back, I'm trying to think of another giveaway soon!
