It Came!!!

A couple of weeks ago I won a giveaway on Hazel’s blog.  Well it came today and look what awesome goodies I got. 
The patterns and thread are fabulous and I will need to get a couple of them kitted up so I can start on my Holiday stitching.

The soap is wonderful and the cloths perfect to throw in my almost packed suitcase.
The chocolate won’t last long on my 5 ½ hour flight east.  Maybe I will get a little stitching done.
Thank You, Hazel for the wonderful giveaway!!!

A Week in Review

Last week has been interesting.  I have whined that we did not get much of a monsoon and then we had a storm that even the natives said they hadn’t seen before.  Most of the Valley got hit with wind, rain and hail.  This is a picture of some of the hail we got.  Some areas got tennis ball size hail.  Four tornadoes touch down east of Flagstaff that caused extensive damage.  We didn’t receive much damage thankfully but others had their skylights broken out and damage to cars.  My kids at a local body shop were swamped with work from all the repair orders.

The other excitement is winning a giveaway from this blog.  I don’t enter all the giveaways so this was an awesome chance to win some charts and goodies from Hazel. She has posted them from the UK and I will post pictures when they arrive.
I made 2 more hats to put on Kristen’s Etsy store.  Here is the link to see some of the things we are offering.
The pumpkin Hat is an adult size and the Christmas hat is for infants.

The rest of my week I volunteered at the Mesa Cannery helping can salsa for the Bishop's Storehouse and worked in Sevrine's Kindergarten class. Now I am prepping for my trip next week to see my sweetheart...  So excited to see DH!!!
