Paintbox Yarns Giveaway Winner!

Hello! I hope you're having a good week. We've been busy, busy, busy here with the kids on Fall Break from school and some home repair work going on, but I plan to be back here on my blog very soon. If the weather holds out, we'll be going up to look at the hot-air balloons tomorrow (we're in the midst of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta as we speak). In my spare time lately, I've been working on a stashbuster ripple; I'll show you my progress soon. I'm very excited because there's a possibility of snow for us later in the weekend, which is just stunning - last winter was so warm and dry it felt like we'd never have wintry weather again, and here we are this year, in mid-October, waiting on a storm that should bring very cold temperatures and maybe even a little snow. You just never know! I'm happy to be having a more normal autumn, though - it just feels right to me. We have the furnace all ready to go if we need it and I'm kind of looking forward to having it kick on some early morning in the near future. Today, we're working around the house and later, picking up the Bear's car from the dealership where he he took it for an oil change. Life has been busy and kind of boring too, but the good kind of both.

I'm announcing the winner of my Paintbox Yarns Simply DK yarn giveaway today! Thank you to all who entered the giveaway. There weren't very many entries, so your odds were really good! Thank you also for the kind words about my cushion cover that I made with this yarn; I enjoyed making it and having the chance to bring you an opportunity to try the yarn for yourself.

The winner of my giveaway is Lorraine of Mama's Mercantile! I've sent you an email, Lorraine, so please look for it in your inbox. A representative from Lovecrochet will contact you via email soon and you can arrange your prize with her. Congratulations!


  1. Lorraine will make good use of that yarn. I like your vibe today. Busy but boring - just the kind of normal we all need I think. Jo x

  2. It all sounds rather cosy with you. As you say, busy and normal is very good. I hope you get that touch of snow, and have a lovely weekend. CJ xx

  3. Congrats to Lorraine! I think Balloon Festivals look like so much fun. Enjoy!

  4. Wow, that took me a little by surprise. Thank you so much, I am doing a happy dance.

  5. Congrats to the winner! Saw the balloon festival many, many, many years ago as a child. Always a spectacular show.

  6. Fall break? I don't believe we get a fall break.. we used to a few years ago in November. It was a mix of teachers conventions and parent teacher meetings.. but now the kids get two days off and four 1/2 days.. not a fan of the 1/2 days :(

    Hot air balloons sounds wonderful.. hope the weather cooperates.

  7. Hello dear Jennifer! Oh, that Paintbox is pretty! Yay for the winner - MM!
    Does the cooler weather continue to put you in the crochet mood? I just keep buying wool. Must stop and catch up.
    Happy October! I hope your entire family are doing well, friend.

  8. Excellent way of telling, and good piece of writing to get information on the topic of my presentation subject, which i am going to convey in institution of higher education.


Thank you for leaving a comment. It's so good to hear from you! I don't always have time to reply but I try to answer questions when I can.
