                Look what I won!!  This came in the mail yesterday!!
I had left a comment on Tina's blog "(Peacefully Knitting") that I liked that little lacey shawl and I was chosen as the winner of this lovely book.  
(Mary and Rosemary--this book is fabulous!!)

And, when I opened the package I saw this yummy skein of yarn she included as an extra gift to make my lace project with...how generous ;-))))
the latest issue of Knits magazine...

(Sorry for glarey photo!!) which has some stunning knits inside.
I saw a vest and a cardi that are just my style....

Thank you so much, Tina--I will be reading (and drooling over lol)
 the patterns for those beautiful shawls and winding off my new yarn
 in that gorgeous avocado colorway....

It is raining here this morning, after thunder and lightning storms passed over us from about 3 am on....so I am awake early today.  It is our day to go to our local BJ's and stock up....so, maybe a little time in my sewing room later

Hugs to all
Julierose La Blageuse (thankful-euse)

    Love to look at the patterns, but I have trouble following them now that I'm older.

  3. Congratulations on your win! That yarn is gorgeous and reminds me, I better eat my avocado before it goes bad.
