I am so excited about our weather this week. For the first time in months we will be in the 40's. It's been a dragging winter around here and I know our weather has been mild compared to most of the country. The robins are in the yard, the geese are flying high overhead and most of the snow has almost melted. We've had a few sunny days in a row and I can almost forget about the icky roads and snowy walk ways. Don't you just hate getting groceries and having to push the cart through slushy parking lots? I am thankful that I have a grocery store and money to fill the cart so I won't complain too much I guess!
I am happy to say I am finally unpacked. Everything is in it's place. The walls are all painted. The floors all cleaned. We just got the last load this weekend, believe it or not. I now have patio furniture (sitting on top of snow right now) and a guest bedroom ready for company. My friend Barb said it was the longest move in history and I think she's right. It took 2 months from start to finish. I'm so ready to move on and get to work full time, well, for a while, anyway. I am meeting my sister in New York in a few weeks for a little fun. We all need a break, right?
We have 2 winners for last week's drawing. For the Through The Year quilt series, the winner is Cindy from PA. The winner of the 6 Colors of ther Seasons charts is Suzzane from FL. Congratulations ladies, I'll be sending them this week.
This week, I have 2 finished items up for anyone. The first is a wool design from one of my books. The table runner was made with Weeks Dye Works hand dyed wool. It's approximately 15" x 24". All you have to do is email me at PGPeddler@aol.com with the word "WOOL" in the title and your name and mailing address by next Saturday at midnight.
The second drawing is for an oak market basket that was made by me years ago. It's about 12-1/2" tall with handle. It has a beautiful color from aging and signed with the number #470 on the bottom. I made over 2000 baskets before I stopped selling them so this was an earlier one. It would make a great Easter basket, or floss and yarn holder. All you have to do to enter is email me at PGPeddler@aol.com with the word "OAK" in the title and your name and mailing address included by midnight Saturday. I will draw names next Sunday for both drawings.
I'm ready for Spring, aren't you?
