Let's start at the beginning. I am giving away 3 of my hand crocheted hearts from my own pattern that I wrote out from a heart I bought at a craft show literally decades ago. I figured out the stitches by looking at that heart and over time perfected the pattern. You can try one of your own, the pattern is free and on my sidebar to the right.
First to write out by hand each name of those who entered. I think this might be easier than trying to find and figure out the automatic number generator that some bloggers use. :-) I'm going low-tech here. :-)
More low tech, I cut them up with scissors, folded them and placed them in my newly completed baby hat -- and my dear husband was the one to pick out the winners.
First Prize Winner is -- Christine65! You won a heart, a skein of red thread and printed directions of the heart pattern! (If you don't want the thread and pattern, please let me know. Please email me your home address.
Second Prize -- lscalhoun! You won a heart - please email me your home address.
Third Prize -- Prince Snow Farm! You won a heart - please email me your home address.
(There is a contact form on the bottom of my right sidebar.)
In other news.. I will be taking Dayle to the doctor to get his staples out of his knee - he had a full knee replacement. I think his recovery has been a lot worse than normal due to that he was shot in that thigh (while flying a helicopter in Vietnam) and it wasn't a routine procedure for the surgeon. I thought this was cute, Buddy was interested in something outside and hopped up on his dad's chair to see.
After 3 days of blizzard, we got freezing rain yesterday, I shot this photo of the trees behind our barn covered in ice. All schools were closed today as the roads are treacherous with all the snow which is now covered in a sheet of ice.
Our house and grounds have been pelted with ice cubes and tree twigs and branches for 2 days now.
