And the winner is...

 It's official...the drawing has taken place...it looks very official doesn't it! My handy blue mixing bowl and all the names written down...
 Don mixes them up really good...he is a great helper...
 He reaches in...and picks.....
Siobhan!! 
Siobhan has a great blog coming all the way from Western Ireland...if you love cross stitch...or even if you don't...you'll be amazed at this gal's talent...you'll find her at Notes from Blue Hen Hollow
I really enjoyed making this bag and as soon as I hear from Siobhan the bag will be on its way to Ireland!
I wish I were going with it!!
On a completely different subject...my dear husband ....picker of all give away winners...is having surgery on his foot on Wednesday...one day before our 32nd anniversary...please keep Don in your thoughts and prayers...I'm sure everything will be fine, but he has a long recovery afterwards...so if you don't see me on here much...it's because I am attending to my beloved Don! Or killing him because he has driven me crazy because he will be reduced to sitting or laying for several weeks!! Kidding aside...I am a bit nervous, but my faith tells me that all will go well!
Until next time...enjoy the day!!

Yahoooo!! I am so excited! Thanks so much, Linda! I will remember Don in my thoughts and prayers--I hope the surgery and recovery both go smoothly.

Okay will keep Don in my prayers and yes he is going to drive you crazy. Men don't do sick well. Play lots of scrabble while you have him trapped. That is my advice or get out of the house. That will be needed as well. Okay kidding aside I hope all goes smoothly and he is up and around very soon.

Congratulations to Siobhan. She is a lucky girl. Must be the luck of the Irish. LOL
On a more serious note, I am praying for Don and his foot surgery and having had a laid up husband with hip replacemnt in the past, I am prying for you my friend, too.
