Our 5th Secret Santa Giveaway Winner and Enter for the last of the six Secret Santa Giveaways!

The fifth random winner is Marie Drew!!
Congratulations!  Please email me (my email is on my Blogger profile) or message me through Etsy with your address and thread size choice. :o)

Alright y'all!!  This is it!! This is the last of the 6 giveaways!! This has been so much fun and I would like to personally thank our Secret Santa for funding our fun! It was an extremely generous thing to do and you have been such a blessing to Tat Land!  Thank you for choosing me to hold these giveaways! :o)

So, to enter this week, please comment on this posts, and your name will be added to my growing spreadsheet. :o)

___________________________________________

So, my finals are behind me now!  I am so happy about that!  Today was a busy day though.  Between the post office, making icing for gingerbread houses, making gingerbread house with Livi's class, and being in complete and utter shock of the tragedy of Newtown, CT, I didn't get as much as I would have liked today, but that's okay!
I did however make a point to work on my Lace Mat.  I like to do things differently and this is definitely a different way to do it!
I had already started this mat, but I messed up on the last round and I will need to cut some of it off before I can finish that one.  I didn't feel like doing all that and felt like changing the colors anyway, and dare I say... add beads. EEeek! lol
I am getting more friendly with beads.  :o)

I don't want to show too much of this, because I want to do a big reveal after Jon's poll is done but here is a sneak peak. :o)

Just a hint, there are NO SLTs ;o)

  17. Thank you so much for running the Secret Santa.
    I don't understand beads yet - I've had a couple of tries and got into a mess. I can't get the hang of how to distribute the beads while winding the shuttle.

    Jess! your mat is looking good and I'm curious to see yours explained. I decided not to make it as I have other commitments and try to avoid stress. Sometimes it works. Karen in OR
