A few weeks ago, I entered a wonderful giveaway offered by my friend Patti over at Pandora's Box. I was thrilled when I found I was her lucky winner! I got my prize in the mail on Saturday and here she is:
A rice sack pillow that Patti made! Isn't it gorgeous?? Patti's sewing skills are just amazing! I am really enjoying my new pillow and I think it looks great on my sad, worn out couch with my other pillows:
Thank you so much, Patti! I am loving my new pillow!!
In other news, the weatherman is calling for 2-4 inches of snow for us here in Virginia tonight. I am thankful that I don't have to get out and drive in that mess! Why is this, you ask? Well, I am currently unemployed, AGAIN!! The job at the lawyer's office was just not my cup of tea. I felt like a fish out of water there and I knew pretty quickly that it wasn't going to work out. On a good note, Scott was hired by a company much closer to our home which offered him a lot more money so we will be o.k. financially until I can find something else. I tell ya, this year has just been a mess for us and I will be so glad to put it behind us and start fresh in 2012. Now you know part of the reason why I don't have very much Christmas spirit this year. But, I have been trying to do a few small things around the house to make the season bright and I hope to share one of those projects with you tomorrow.
Until next time. . .
