Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

 I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. I have friends in Ireland that have celebrated with us a day to give thanks for all that we have. I don't think it needs to just be an American holiday. I know many of us have challenges and grief in our life but we also have a lot to be grateful for. I know I do. And I am very grateful for all of you. Have a wonderful day tomorrow.

Winners today! 1600 yards of hand dyed floss! 2 winners!

Be Ye Thankful!!!! We all have so much to be thankful for. It has been so nice reading your comments each day on these give-aways.
It is true that I don't have time to answer over 100 comments each day but know that I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you.
I appreciate your humor and sweet comments!

I know....get to the winners! It was a large box of names to draw from this time. For each one that posted on facebook or their blog, they got an additional 25 entries. My stack paper cutter got a workout on this one. Each person's name is printed on a page 25 times. Then all the pages are cut at once and the pieces are put in a box. Confetti! You can't use random number generators on this type of drawing.
The winners are: Babs in Alabama  and Rita. Congratulations!
Please email me at nbelgian@aol.com.

BUT WAIT!!!! It's not over! Lets do it again! Today's Christmas give-away will be another 1600 yard set of the 1795 Collection, 80 skeins of floss so be sure to enter!
See my next post for the 11th day of Christmas and be sure to enter there.
