I WON!!!

Oh, my gosh! I won! I won! I won! I can't believe it! Tanya of The Sampler Girl had a drawing on her blog for anyone that stitched her freebie design "Eat, Drink and Be Scary" and sent her a picture by Oct. 8th. And...I actually won! I was able to pick 2 designs of hers for winning! I can't wait for them to arrive. I will post a picture of my choices once they arrive! :-)

I signed up for a PIF on Janaina's blog and so I am Paying it Forward to the first 3 people that comment they are interested on this post. I will send you something stitched by me within the next 365 days, but you have to make the same offer on your blog and continuing Paying it Forward!

I haven't done much stitching the past week because I have been painting my son's bathroom and new bedroom. He has decided to move from his old room into one of the other rooms in the house. The old room had a large picture window in it and since Hurricane Ivan took out the large oak tree in front of it the sun has been beating into that room each morning waking him bright and early and making his room about 10 degrees warmer than the other rooms in the house. So...time for a change. I will post pictures once he gets his room set up the way he wants. Be prepared though...he picked orange for the color!!! But, really, it's not as bad as you might think. It's a dark pumpkin color, not a bright orange.

Recent movie thoughts:

  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua - Cute
  • Fireproof - a very good movie with a strong Christian basis. Deals with love and the difficulties of marriage and trying to continue to make it work. Made by the same people that made "Facing the Giants"
  • Ghost Town - OK, not great. Parts were very funny, but I expected more. No chemistry between two main characters. At least in my opinion.
  • The Longshots - Good family movie. Based on a true story.
  • Nights in Rodanthe - Very good. Of course, it's Nicholas Sparks, so bring the tissues. Quite a few differences from the book, but still very good.
  • Eagle Eye - Very good political thriller!

I would love to win something finish so beautifully as your Eat, Drink and be Scary!! Congratulations on winning -- It would take me forever to choose only two of Tanya's chart (LOL).

If I win I will PIF.

Janaina said...

Oooohh.. congrats on the winning! =)
Glad you joined to the PIF too! Hope you like my stitching!Already thinking on a surprise for you.
I am waiting anxiously for Beverly Hills Chihuahua to arrive at Brasil. I watched to the trailer at Youtube and I am sure I am going to looove it! I am a dog lover and I bet it will be a long session of "aaaawww" and "ooohhhh" LOL.

I love your finish. Very cute. Congratulations on your win. Have a wonderful day!

I'll slip in here and answer your question. I'm not sure where to find your email address.

I bought the crushed walnut shells at PetSmart. They're also used for lining bird cages. They make great fillers for pin cushions. It wasn't my original idea, though. It was suggested by the designer.

Thanks, Marian

Congratulations! Your finish is very cute with the fuzzy trim. :) Enjoy your new charts! Thanks for the movie reviews, can't wait to see chihuahua with my boys.

Jinger, your eat drink and be scary looks amazing! Congratulations on your win! I can't wait to see what you picked out!

Congrats on your win, what a fun way to finish it off you came up with. I'll look forward to hearing which designs you pick. I've only seen one of the movies you've listed, Ghost Town. I agree with your review, cute movie, but I thought the chemistry between them was a bit lacking as well.

Hi, Jinger! May I be one of your PIFers??? I didn't know if you had 3 or not, requests, yet. I was so glad you won Tanya's gifts. I saw "Rodante" with my ladies movie and dinner group. We didn't especially believe the movie, but loved watching Richard Gere!! His hair is so gorgeous, and he made the movie for me!! LOL
Hugs, Deb
