I swear ... it was Labour Day last week ... and it just dawned on me that October begins this week ..... and the beginning of October ... yup October 1st ... is my birthday!
I decided last year that I would begin & carry on a tradition instituted by a dear old e-friend Nora Creeach ... who passed away last year.
It was a prize I won in her annual Birthday Draw that provided me with an instrument to my success ... a book that turned on my ability to pattern ..... which in turn has since yielded 5 published articles ..... and for that I am eternally grateful!
And so ..... here's the plan!
Simply leave a comment on this post to get in on the Birthday Giveaway Draw!
As I'm posting rather late ... I will wait until after dinner on Sunday October 4th to make the draw ... and announce the winner then.
Okay so ... the sweater for Mel is progressing ... and I am really pleased with how it looks!
Not only do I have about 18" of the finished 29" length done, I started a sleeve to take along to work ... and have 18" of the first one done ... so am sure I'll have it done for her birthday.
November 13th is the day ... yes a Friday ... the day she was born on! A lucky day for me regardless of superstition that some attach to it! Can't wait to see her in the finished creation ... I think it will have been worth the effort! There are very few people in the world I'd go to such lengths for ... she is one of them. The rest pay cash!
Love & Hugs ... Marie
