2 of 2 and a Giveaway too.
OK, so back from my stitching weekend and other than unpacking all my new goodies and catching up at work not much stitching was happened. But I did manage to get out and do a little more shopping.
This time I got a few clothes and even this great new purse.
I don't know why but I love the color.
After shopping I met up with my son for dinner and then the sky opened up. The hail was intense and lasted for a while. Here are pics from my yard after we managed to get back home.
out the front door, all the dark green on top is the leaves that were ripped of my tree.
DS posed to show how much hail accumulated in the corner of the house. (sorry so blurry it was dark out)
My backyard was completely covered by hail. It looked like snow. Crazy spring weather.
The bad part is that my car was parked at the restaurant during all this and is now covered in hail damage. Ugh! It is only two years old and I loved this car. It will never be the same.
Just to end on a happier note. Here is a pic of my Lucky girl. When another blogger mentioned celebrating her puppies 5th birthday I thought Lucky should have a birthday to celebrate. Just because she was adopted and we don't really know it, shouldn't matter. So Lucky will be celebrating her 5th birthday (the vets guess) on May 1st.
I am going to celebrate Lucky's big day by having my first giveaway. It is this great Trail Creek Farms pillow kit. "Please and Thank You" and comes with all the buttons and bows needed to finish it off. You would have to supply the fabric and thread to stitch the design. But who knows what else may finds it's way into this giveaway package. (my little frog friend is only assisting in the picture taking and is not part of this give away).
Just leave a comment and I will include you in the drawing to be held on Lucky's birthday May 1st.
