Look what was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. My very own "Charlie Brown Christmas Tree".

My girlfriend Pat and her husband Ron dropped this off on Tuesday. Ron gets mad at me if I don't phone him and let him know when the "Chuck Brown" specials are on TV. So last year I gave him the "Charlie Brown Christmas" on DVD.

I'll have to put their Christmas gifts under this tree for Sunday; as they are coming for a Christmas lunch.

Just had to share this little tree with you!!

Tat on.

I Can't believe it.....

I was one of Sherrys' Prize winners this week!!!!!! I won a Work Basket magazine. I've never seen one before.

I feel so lucky that I think I will buy a lotto ticket this week too!!!
If I win I'll share it with Sherry.

This has really helped to get me in the Christmas spirit!!!

Thanks Sherry for being the true meaning of Christmas, by being sooooooo giving.

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas...

Wow What a great week of craft sales!!! I was able to help my girlfriend out a few days of the sale and made about $90.00 over the week. Not to bad. It is money I didn't have before!!!! That was by selling snowflake and a few doilies with some bookmarks. The best part was talking to people about tatting. One dear lady who can no longer work with fine threads was so happy to see the tatting that she returned one day and gave me 2 large bags of crochet cotton thread. She did not have anyone in her family who would use the thread and was happy to give it to me!!! To my surprise there was a great number of size 20 and size 30 threads in the collection!!! I'll take a picture of the threads and post it a little later.

The guild is doing a Winter Frolic tatting exchange and the dead line for having your item to the sender is not until January 2010. The lady who received my name didn't let any snow get under her feet!!!LOL I received my tatted item November 30. I still have not decided what I'm going to send to my exchange name. This tatted snowflake came to me from Nova Scotia and it is a pattern by Jane Edorall. I'm very lucky!!!!!
Well that is all for now. I am picking up an order from Handy Hands that my sister brought back from the U.S. tomorrow so I'll include pictures of the order also later.

Tat on.
