Hey-ho, I'm back...

So, a couple of weeks ago I told you all the sad story of my computer.  Oh Wait!  There's more to tell... it seems the mother board was "fried" according to the tech, due to the fluctuating power supply.

Okay, long story short -- we 're now okay fine and getting the kinks worked out.  It really hasn't taken this long to get back up and running. 

I've just been the lazy lurker -- reading blogs, commenting occasionally.  I have been crocheting -- more on this in a later post.  More importantly, I want to tell you about my 2, count'em 2, giveaway wins!

My first win, I can't believe how lucky I have been this last month!  My first win is the pincushion from My Rose Valley as reported in this post.  I received it in the mail from Switzerland.  I let my dogs smell the envelope and the pin cushion, LOL.  I figured all those smells from Somewhere Else.  They smelled and sniffed and smelled.  Both items got the lick of approval.  And, in fact, my girl dog who doesn't like toys, wanted this pincushion for herself!  Sorry, Cassie, it's mine.  I felt kind of bad, she NEVER wants any toys and she wanted this one.  Of course, it now sits with my yarn and other crafty-type things.  What did Annette put in that pincushion?

My second win is one of the magnets from Crochet Concupiscence!  I have received it in the mail and it now resides on my refrigerator.  Of course, I couldn't get a picture without a lot of shine from the fridge.  So here is my magnet momentarily displayed on the back of the kitchen counter.  This is so cool.  I would put it on my car except someone might take it.  Probably not, but you can never tell.

I never win anything, and to win twice in one month!!  Wow, thanks to both ladies!  I am so happy; I know my husband does not understand.  This is the best kind of mail to get!

Have a good week everybody!  I am so glad to be back.
