Trying To Get Back to Normal....whatever that is

 Well, as most of your know my Dad passed away on the 13th of February and I have been trying to get somewhere between total pain and normal and I am slowly putting one foot in front of the other.  Thank you to all of your prayers and kind and loving emails, posts and thoughts.  All that being said, prayers are still gratefully accepted.  

So, on to business, we should have picked another monthly winner on February 15 and we just didn't.  No, tomorrow I will pick February's winner.  This month's winner will receive a wool kit, complete with pattern, picture, floss and pattern templates so if you have entered you can comment on this post for one chance, become a follower for two chances, "like" our Facebook page for another chance.  Three in all.
