Sweet Stuff & Stash

The past few days have been filled with goodies and that can never be a bad thing :o) Yesterday, Mom and Dad stopped by to drop of my jam supply. Along with the usual strawberry and raspberry, she included a jar of pumpkin jam. This was a new recipe that she found in a magazine so she wasn't sure how it would turn out.

If you want to see my expression, check out Mom's Blog ;o) Let me put it this way, if you like marmalade jam, you're going to LOVE this! As you can see, I already get my sweet stash from Mom but now she's stepped it up a notch. So far I've tried it on bagels but I'm wondering what it would be like on ice cream...

Today was STASH DAY! The postman was very kind and dropped off two things -


During The Online Needlework Show, I put my name in with My Mark Designs for one of their door prizes and guess what? I won! The funny thing is I won a pattern from them at the spring show as well. I couldn't help myself this time and just HAD to get her new pattern, Equal Rights ;o) A snowman, er snowwoman, with boobs! ROFL!

On top of that, my order from Wasatch Needle Craft arrived! I just couldn't resist the new pink ribbon pattern by The Cat's Whiskers - Love, Laugh, Survive & Thrive. And once I bought that, I just HAD to include the Pink Snips by Kelmscott Designs :o) These are just adorable. This was the first time I ordered from this ONS and I wouldn't hesitate to deal with them again.

Before I go, I just want to wish all my Canadian friends a turkey filled Thanksgiving Day weekend. I hope my American friends enjoy their extra day off Columbus Day weekend and for the rest of my friends around the world, enjoy your weekend to the fullest :o)
