Look what I got!!!!!!!!

It's Christmas and my birthday all wrapped up in one!!!! Check out what I got in the mail today......




It's my contest winnings from Amy at Cats in My Craft Basket (check out my favorite blogs). This was even more than I thought it was and it's even nicer than the pictures show. The yarn colors are fabulous and so soft. We don't have a Hobby Lobby in Pittsburgh (that I know of) so the patterns were great and I AM a purse-aholic so I'm anxious to start that. Being in the Stole/Shawl Swap in Crochetville, I may be using one of these yarns. Thank you so so much Amy, you had a great contest and you pick fantabulous prizes!
Ok, second thing I want to talk about is a new blog that I have posted in my favorite blogs. It's called "The Funny Peppers". It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with crochet or knitting or crafts of any kind.....BUT, you gotta check it out. It's pretty new right now and it's written by my sweetie-man who loves to write crazy stories. He writes alot for a site call The Spoof" which is just a bunch of made up stories that usually twist around current stories. He decided to list alot of the ones he has written. So click on his blog (do it for me) check it out, and read a story or two....they are sure to put a smile on your face. And don't be afraid to leave a comment...you are sure to make his day! (you know how much YOU love comments on YOUR blog!)
Well, that's about it for now.... gonna chill a bit and crochet of course! Thanks for reading...
