My WIPs and giveaway win..

work in progress..a flower doily that I am working on..ran into a problem with either the pattern or my brain isn't I will go back to it to look at it again.
A pattern by Trish Kristoffersen..working with a steel blue color that has been discontinued. I hate when they discontinue an awesome color. It is a cross between gray and a country blue. I love it.
Finally, but not least, is a package that arrived last Thursday from Tazmania. I won a blog giveaway at Pat thank you so very much. She makes these beautiful coin purses. Knitted with beads..I am so in awe of her work. Her Barbie dresses are incredible. She also threw in a baseball cap that has a Tazmania emblem on it. I put it up somewhere so I would remember to put it in my blog..and now I can't find it. Go figure. But if you have a few seconds go check her stuff out. You will not be disappointed.
On the home front, I had to be up and have my house all cleaned by 9:00..the realtor wanted to show the house. So my house is all cleaned up and nothing left to do but grab a hook. On my way out the door I noticed that there are 2 more houses on my street that now have for sale signs up. The good news is I don't have to sell mine..we want to but if it doesn't that is ok too. We seem to move about every 3 years. I guess we haven't found the right house or neighborhood yet. My hubby sister is coming in from New Mexico, weather permitting. So the blog might be on hold for a week or two after this Thursday..So I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas. May you always find peace, love and hope. Blessings, Vikki

agreed, Pat does beautiful work...we did a potholder swap too and she also sent 2 caps for my boys...from Tasmania...they were so tickled. That coin purse/awesome..Congratulations of the win. Moving my hook here in a little bit...making another Angel...and maybe will mount it as the tree...the starch thing doesn't work for this project..and it tears the stitches.enjoy your visit and Merry Christmas Vikki

A busy time for you Vikki. I hope you will have a happy Christmas despite all the go.
Pat from Tasmania is one of my favourites too. Her bead knitting is beautiful.

Ohhh I love the knitted coin purse! You lucky girl. :)

Don't fret over the Trish Kristoffersen doily, I love her designs, but she does make you use your noodle. But if anyone can figure it out, I am sure it will be you. Your doilies are always so beautiful. :)

Fingers crossed on the showing.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...oh, and hugs to my pal Buddy, too. :)

Beautiful colour for the doily, it will look stunning.
Well done on your win, the coin purse is lovely (I love those clasp type, so very handy!)
Happy Christmas to you and yours.

Hi Vikki! I'm feeling much better and for that I'm so grateful since I have soooo much to still do... like make some bread and more cookies, laundry and so on. My mom came today so I think we may go out shopping in the next few days...YES, we are crazy!!! LOL! Congrats to your Daughter! :o) I love Weddings. I won't be on here much either until after new years...
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay safe and I will see you back here in the new year :o) Hugs and Love Sweet friend, Jennifer

Love seeing your WIP's Vikki, that blue really is lovely.

I adore the coin purse, how gorgeous is that! Beautiful.

Hope all goes well for you with the house. It's good that there's no pressure for you to sell unless it's right for you, but I hope it all goes as you would want.

Take care!

Merry Christmas, Vikki! Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I love my doily! I'm framing it and it looks so pretty. I've just got to figure out how to pin it to the velvet background without it showing. I don't want to glue it and ruin it.

Have a safe and happy holidays!
