The Giveaway Winner Is . . . . .
NAN from nannybird! Thanks, again, to all of you who commented on my giveaway post and left me sweet messages.
1. Frenchie Totebag, 2. Welcome to South Carolina, 3. South Carolina welcoming, 4. Hand Towel/Golf Towel/Baby Burp Cloth
Nan was contacted and quickly replied that she would most like to have a totebag and even had a special design request. Nan moved away from South Carolina in the last year or so and misses this place. South Carolina has a really nice state flag design, and embroiderers and artists have gone crazy with it over the years embellishing everything from clothing to home dec to foods with our palmetto tree and moon. You can see my Palmetto State embroidery designs here. I'm looking forward to making the perfect bag for her.
You'll have to stop by Nan's blog and see everything she is into. She's a big crocheter and spends lots of time on Ravelry. I'm a member of Ravelry, too, but I just haven't had the time (brains) to get into it and figure it all out, so she sent me an e-mail sort of mapping out the way.
Well, the last three weeks of June didn't go as I had planned. I had intended to be at Camp Chisholm and stay home this month, get into new habits, organize papers and rooms, and box up items for the flea market or garage sale. However, early on I caught a summer bug that turned into nearly pneumonia by last week! The coughing and decongestants practically made me delirious, and it was hard to stay on track even with my "real" work. Thank goodness for a good old Z-Pak and some cough syrup with codeine! Saturday morning I woke up for the first time feeling rested and ready to go. I sewed all weekend getting out some postponed orders today. Now I need to get to that sewing I promised Camille. By the time I make the dresses and tops we have planned, summer may be gone. Not really, though, this is South Carolina, and we could have a heat wave all the way into October!
