Any one have extra time to share, give away, sell??

I have been way behind, trying to catch up and get ready for a 4 day tatting demonstration over Labor Day.

I have been babysitting grandkids, and running around doing stuff.

This past weekend I canned 64 pints of Whole Kernal Corn and made 13 quarts of  Creamed Corn to put in the freezer, last night I canned 8 quarts of dill pickles.

The tomatoes still haven't ripened yet.  The Pole beans are flowering, the watermelon are almost ready.  and the beets need to be pickled.

And I still have to go to work everyday ~ would love to not have to do this.

Any one have any extra time they don't need?  I sure would like to get some.

 Congratulations Shirlee.
Thank you to all who left comments, and were patient while I worked through trying to get a hold of the possible winners.

I still think I have a ball of varigated green in the same size by Omega,  If I locate it, I will be giving that away as well.

I'm Late, I'm Late, For A Very Important Date

Sorry folks,  I had planned to draw the winner of the ball of thread last evening, but I ended up out of town yesterday and didn't get back until after 9 pm.  I was too tired and just didn't get it done.


Here is a look at the Random Number Generator
The 6th commenter was Esoraleak  please contact me,  there was no email address available in your comment or your blog profile. 

If I do not hear from her in the next day or 2 I will try again. 
 After discovering that I had no way to contact her, I check several more of the commenters, several of them also have no email address in their profile, nor in their comment. 

Please dear blog friends, if you enter a contest, please be sure there is a way to get a hold of you.

Impromptu thread give away

I have a ball of thread that needs a different home.
It is a pretty variegated colorway, a deep burgandy with lavendar and soft pink.

It is made by Omega and is a size 50.

I like the colorway, but not the thread, it is a softer thread, and I have trouble with it.  I can see others have not problems, but for me it is just frustration and I choose to let it go.

I was working on a bookmark this weekend.
the pattern is mine, and will be written up and posted later when it has been re-worked.
The thread on the bottom side is the one I wish to give away. I gave up,  it has been so long that I have had to give up on a project that I can't remember the last time.  I have always been able to salvage things, but not this time.  Maybe I am getting older and less patient.... I don't know. 

Anyway....  I will hold this open until the evening of the 10th.  Then enter all comments on both blogs  in a random number generator and choose the lucky person.

Please be sure that I can find your email address in your blog profile, or include it in your comment.  

Here are a couple more pictures.
The ball of Olive Lizabeth is new and included in the picture only to show the size of the ball of Omega

Shanny wanted to say "Hi" to all his fans.  (He is not one bit camera shy.)

I thought I had a green colorway in this thread too, but can't locate it, so if I do, there will be another give away for that ball.

I was gone this past weekend camping with my BFF.  We started Thursday eve and broke camp Sunday night. Barb and I used their camper for the outing except for Saturday night when farmguy and I used our new tent.  Our husbands came out for Saturday and Sunday suppers. We enjoyed the break in routine.  Some nice walks, some soaking up the sun, some sitting in the shade reading or tatting.  A lot of quiet was enjoyed by both of us.

Next week I will spend it babysitting grandkids.  I have a 3yr old grandson who has epilepsy.  He has an apt with doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.  I will be staying with his older siblings.  Prayers for good results would be much appreciated.
