I'm a winner!

So I checked my lottery tickets yesterday and yes I'm still working but as far as I'm concerned I'm still a winner since Vonna drew my name in her Bloggerversary contest!! I'm thrilled! I think the only other thing I've ever won was a cake in a Christmas draw at work. And this will be sooo much better! Vonna does incredible stitching! I've only been a blogger for a couple months now but I've marvelled at all the lovely work that is being done out there by my fellow bloggers. You are all an inspiration to me. Thanks Vonna!

I've gotten no stitching done the past few days. It seems like I'm glued to the phone as my friends and family are catching up with me post vacation. I've also been trying to get most of my photos uploaded to Webshots so that they can all have a look. I didn't realize we had taken so many shots and of course my computer acting up has not helped me to get this task completed any time soon! There's a photo contest running right now at Costco stores here and I submitted an entry for my hubby which he'd taken while we were in the Muskokas. Now I have to find one which I took so that I can participate as well. Can I be so lucky as to be a winner twice?!
The pictures can be of anything.. friends, family, nature, vacation , just as long as they were taken since the start of the year. I thought maybe the one of my cat Finnigan but my DH also suggested the loon. Here's my DH's entry.

I finally receive my order from SB&Bobs today but my camera battery is being charged right now so a picture will have to wait. I love all of it. Now I've got the itch to start a new one soon. After tomorrow I'm off work for a couple of days. We had originally planned to do some boating on Big Rideau Lake near the village of Westport. However they're forecasting rain now so maybe I'll actually get some stitches in!


  1. I know what it feels like to never win anything, then out of the blue to win something absolutely fantastic - its happened to me once before. Congratulations!

    The photo your DH is entering is absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you come up with as your entry.
