And the winner is.....


Please contact me with your mailaddress :) sabine dot foster at web dot de

I'm sorry for the one day delay but I found out about an Englisch class that takes place Mondays and Wednesdays. So I decided to go and check if they would accept me as a student....and they did. So I was there from 6 - 9PM. And when I came home I was simply too tired...and went straight to bed.

On Monday evening I will just stop by my english class because the Wheat City Needleart Guild meeting starts at seven....That is even more important than English lessons! A big smile to Marian D *wave*

Prairie Moon - There was an old woman Chart to give away

I want to give away the chart. I'm pretty sure that I won't stitch it again :)

So please leave a comment if you are interested in the Chart and I will send it to you. If there is more than one person interested I will let choose the recipient.

November 19 will be the closing date.

Thank you for participating :)

I've been tagged....

by Leah of The Usefull Needle. She was away from blogging for a long time but now she is back. I just love her blog and her stitching.

I must post six random things about myself.
The rules are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.

So, six random things about me are:
1. Tonight I saw my first icehockey game (Brandon Wheat Kings vs. Seattle)
2. I am a Ranger Babe. Hello to all you Stephanie Plum fans :)
3. My two favourite TV shows are Everwood and 7th Heaven.
4. My favorite colours are all shades of read and autumn colours.
5. My big dream is to ride the Highway No.1 from Vancouver down to San Diego on my bicycle.
6. I love horror movies but I am too much of a whimp to actually watch them....

I finished Shakespeare's Champion yesterday evening. It was much more exciting than the "normal" cozy mystery. I enjoyed it very much. Hopefully I find the 3rd book in the series pretty soon.

Shakespeare's Champion (Lily Bard Mystery, Book 2)

I also put a few stitches into A Real Snow Job...but it will be long way till you actually can see a bit of the design....
