Sometimes we drop the ball…

Luckily for me most of then are yarn balls so nothing breaks.  Usually anyway.

I am sorry for disappearing. One of my dearest and oldest friends is loosing her battle with breast cancer. I am spending as much time with her as I can and when I’m not  it is still certainly where my head and heart is.

Paula mentioned to me about the contest winners this morning. I drew a complete and total blank. I know she wondered why I was just staring at her. I almost said to her. “oh hon you’ve been on vacation there’s no contest”.  I caught myself before I actually said it though which is lucky since she had the list of winners in her hand.

So without further ado our, “find the new hues” contest winners.

Congratulations!!! You can contact Paula ( and she will hook you up with your prize.

Thank you to everyone who played.

Note: Gilly is Golly. Actually it should be Golly the Gilly . I’m ever so slightly addicted to the Monarch of the Glenn. Golly is the spitting image of my very scottish grandfather.

    Thinking of you sweet lady! You have a big heart and I love you for that.
    I forgot about the contest too! Probably because I didn’t play. HA!
    Be well…….take care of yourself too.

    Oh, hun. I’m so terribly sad to hear about your dear friend. You’re just where you need to be, we all understand. Hugs to you.

    And Monarch of the Glen and Gilly – I knew I loved you. I watched every episode a few years ago and still miss it.
