Giveaway Reminder, Plus

     Good morning ya'll, and what a lovely one it is here in southeastern NC.  Loving the milder temperatures after a very hot and humid summer.  Coffee on the porch and watching all the birds at the feeders is always a delight.

     I wanted to remind everyone today about my giveaway.  We have 93 followers at this time.  Seven more and I'll be drawing a name to see who wins the gift box.  I've enjoyed filling it up, but it's chuck full now and just waiting for shipping.  Keep in mind that to have a chance to win this box, you must be a follower.  I want to see you listed under my friends! Then on your blog you mention this giveaway.  This step not only gives someone else a chance to win, but it will allow me to draw a name quicker! Then leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you if you win.

     The last couple of days I've been working on the baby blanket for my great grandson who is due in last November.  I enjoy working with the Cake yarn and of course being just a granny square blanket,  it's working up quickly.  The colors are actually brighter than what this picture shows.

     Have any of you been to the needlework areas in your local Walmart.....I happened to see this little kit the other day here and at six dollars, I thought it was a buy indeed.  It's a 14 x 14" pillow with the words already stamped on it.  All you have to do is embroider the few flowers and add a name under Home Sweet Home.  I thought it would make someone a nice gift so I picked it up.

     I have five more pounds of tomatoes that I'll start to dehydrate this morning.  I use the plum tomatoes and this time will slice them rather than just cut them in half.  After a sprinkle of salt and thyme or oregano, I'll start them drying.

     I just love this little lady, and she's so spoiled! Tiny Girl has been with us for a couple of years now and she couldn't be happier.  Notice that she is ready to spring off the table if she's told to get down.....

     Will let ya'll go for now.  I'm getting ready to head to the kitchen to slice up all those tomatoes, and then it will be a puttering day for me.
      Until next time, you be safe and well, and don't forget to "feel the colors".
