Comfort Food & Prize Winners!!

Oops! I said I'd be back "On Monday" to do the OPAM draw ... I seem to have misplaced a day! :0) You see ... it was a long weekend here in QLD and so Monday felt more like a SUNDAY ... and I forgot!! Sorry for keeping you all in suspenders for a day longer than planned ... I hope you'll forgive me! :0)

OK ... who voted that the cold weather was allowed to show up and where to I go to protest!!! SIGH! Yes, it's that time of year where the thermometers here on top of our 'hill' start to dip below the 10 degrees mark and this summer chick thinks about hibernating or moving to Fiji! :0) So what's a girl to do ...

... but make herself a cuppa and curl up to munch on some old favourite 'comfort food' ... Girl Guide Biccies!!! I don't know what it is ... maybe it's a secret ingredient!! :0) ... but no other biccies are quite as tasty as the good ol' Girl Guide biccies. We hadn't had them for a few years cos the little girl in our neighbourhood who used to knock on our door to sell them to us moved away ... winter just wasn't the same! :0) BUT ... my dancing buddy Lynda's daughter is a GG now ... YAY!! BICCIES! Tee! Hee! Hee!

So ... while I was slurping my cuppa (quietly of course ... manners!!) and enjoying my GG biccies, I got around to the random choice of winners for OPAM's April collection. Firstly, a big WELL DONE!!! To you all! April saw our second-biggest tally for the year so far, a whopping ...

634 Finishes!!

WOWSERS! You gals must have been stitching up a storm! I say "you gals" cos my poor tally stands at a big fat ZERO for April ... SIGH!! Busy month, lots of welcome visitors ... and then the UN-welcome visitors in the sewing cupboard!! ... all added up to not-much-sewing here. Ah well ... NEXT month! :0) Thank you to all of you who emailed Sweet Peg and me with your finishes ... much appreciated! Congrats to you all for the finishes and for those of you like me, I hope you at least managed to steal a bit of time for yourself to sit and relax with some stitching ... or knitting. :0) That's what it's all about, after all.

OK ... without further ado, the prize draw winners for April are ...




CONGRATULATIONS! Gals! Drop me an email with your snail mail  addresses and a little surprise will be coming your way by camel train! :0)

And now ... I'm off to sneak a few more GG biccies ... oh dear! Perhaps it will be a gym visit on the agenda for tomorrow! Tee! Hee! Hee! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and that the rest of your week includes lots of time to sit, stitch and dream! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!

Thanks Kris and Peg for all your hard work. When my girls were in Brownies and Girl Guides they were just plain old ones. Great to see they introduced chocolate ones. Enjoy your cuppa.

Happy days.

Hi Kris,

Long time no see! Congratulations on conquering the evil ants. We have bugs galore here in Texas so we have our home professionally sprayed quarterly or we would be overrun in no time.

I'm sorry to have been so out of pocket these last few months. We've been out of town every weekend for the past 12-13 weeks or so, cleaning and fixing my father-in-law's house 224 miles away. He was/is a hoarder, so it has been a real challenge. We're making progress though, I finally got around to blogging about it this past weekend, the first one we've been home in SO LONG. Needless to say it has wreaked havoc on my OPAM goals. Unless you count the sunscreen I made out of old bamboo placemats sewn together with strips of blue cotton fabric or the semi-permanent laminate table covering I made for Dad's patio, I have accomplished exactly zero in the past 4 months. I hope to do more, but there's still lots of work to be done. I just wanted to say "hi". 8)

Take care,
Susan in Texas
