Catherine of Bramblewood Stitches is the winner of my homemade vanilla! Catherine, I'm sending you an email and hope you enjoy it! I decided to send out another bottle and Kathy P of Cotton Cellar wins that one. Kathy P, I'll send you an email as well.

I was fortunate to win this gorgeous needlebook from Jeanne at Willow Tree Stitcher in April. I haven't posted about it because I wanted to take a photo. My photo isn't all that great so do hop over to her blog, which is fantastic, and check out her picture. Jeanne's finishing is absolutely exquisite - thank you Jeanne!

Several of you have asked about my mother in law. This week, after 3 weeks and 2 days in the hospital, she was released from the hospital in Las Vegas. She is staying with a friend and after 2 weeks of home health rehab there we expect the doctor will release her to fly back home here to Florida. We're all ready-thank you for your thoughts and emails!
