and begin...

I don't know why I am posting. Maybe to appease guilt that I haven't posted? Why do I have guilt? That's crazy. It's MY blog.

So there's tragic news here at Millions of Thoughts. I cannot find my camera charger. Therefore I cannot upload photos because my camera is dead. I know.

Movers come in 3 days.. EeeP! I will be in temporary accomodation (meaning - scramble to pack a months worth of stuff in my car ) for a month before we move into our new home in September.

But to increase my stress levels, I figured I'd do a giveaway . You see, awhile back, I purchased a superhero cross stitch pattern from Wee Wonderfuls. There was a glitch in the mail system and I never received it. The lovely owner sent a new one to me. Well, both patterns came then at nearly the same time ( I think one was a postage error). She included an additional hand stitch pattern as an apology, which was unecessary, but nice to do. Isn't this turtlestuffie cute? I asked her if she would mind if I give the extra away and she was fine with it.

So, tell me which pattern you would like to win?

I'll draw two names on Tuesday night and mail them out on Wednesday...

and of course, no you don't need to blog about this or add me as a friend or put a bumper sticker on the car about this to get more entries.... but you do need to be reachable. I won't play tag with you for weeks. So, make sure your blogger profile name allows email replies, or add an email contact to your comment.

enjoy your day....

    I don't want either, because I can't sew, but I am very excited to be seeing you soon. You will be very close to me in August as we are in North B. You and the boys can come and hang in the back yard if you like or we can go somewhere to burn their endless energy on.
