Day 3 Give Away & The Day 1 Winner!!!

Yesterday the Berries met for our Christmas Party Potluck, 
The Mug Rug Gift exchange and a bit of stitching!  
Sue, who was the hostess lives in a peaceful bit of 
Sisters heaven.

Those of you who follow me on Facebook or Instagram 
have seen the mug rug I made...
love the bit of woolie in the rug!

...And here is the mug I received from Cathy!  

It is going in our RV!!!  
After all it is a camping themed mug and 
there is even a little painting of 
Enzo on the mug!!!

I have to share with you what one of the Berries does every holiday season...I am sooooo doing this!!!  She started it in 2006 on her dining room table cloth.  Every one who attends dinner either at Thanksgiving or Christmas signs their name in pencil with some drawing or note + the year.  Then she embroiders thread for Thanksgiving and red thread for Christmas!!!  OMG what a wonderful heirloom of the guests who spend the holiday with her and her husband!!

Some of the messages are poignant...some are hysterical...some include relationships which have some and is a history of the holidays :)

Even her pet left an impression!

OK, on to the winner of Day One...Glass by Lindi!!!  Send me your mailing address and I will drop it in the mail!  Congratulations!  You have 24 more hours to leave a comment on Give Away Day 2...don't miss out!  As for the Day 3 Give Away...remember this small quilt I made in honor of my mom.

At the time of her passing she was the oldest practicing Realtor in the State of California.  And the board had given her a pin in commemoration with 4 Rubies for each year...which I included in the wall hanging.

The Give Away for Day 3 is the pattern I used by Primitive Gatherings.  My mom was a sailor but if you don't like the anchor you can put anything you want in the center of the star!  If you are interested in this mini pattern please leave a comment on this post and please be a registered follower of the Woolie blog :)

Have a great Thursday...
I am off this morning to my mammogram...
I hope you have had yours this year!  Enjoy the video!
