Stuff - But No Contest Winners Yet

Fear not ... I have chosen a winner in the primitives/decor shop category but am needing to "work" on the craft supplies name a bit.  I have a couple avenues I can follow but the winners will be announced either this afternoon or this evening.  Thank you for bearing with me   : )

I am about ready to head off to the eye doctor.  Yes, another doctor appointment, one which was not in this week's plans until a few moments ago.  On Saturday I was my usual uncoordinated self & while using my round bristle hairbrush to blow dry my bangs ... same as I've done for years & years & years ... I somehow brought the brush up to do another pass through the bangs but ended up whacking myself ... hard ... in my wide-open right eye instead.  Ouch!  My eye watered & hurt for quite a while.  It was of course the weekend.  Not much I could do about it.  Noticed later a strange "bump" to the right of my iris.  It started out small, got bigger, & now has shrunk back down a bit but it looks kind of like a yellow blister & is definitely noticeable.  Since it's still there & bothersome to boot I decided to call the eye doctor's office & was told I had better come in this morning.  Maybe I'll get to play the part of a female pirate for a while.  John might like that   : )

Before I go, I wanted to share with you a new punchneedle goodie which I purchased from Ronda at Simple Thyme Prims.

Sorry about the shadows.  I couldn't get the straight on photo to not have them. Anyway, isn't it wonderful!  I so love punchneedle things & I love Ronda's work.  She had posted a photo of one of these on her blog a week ago, advertising that she had placed it in her Etsy shop, but I saw the post too late & missed out on it.  I sent her an email & said how disappointed I was to have missed it.  I was thrilled when she responded & said that she had actually made 2 of them   : )   I love punchneedle, I love birds, & I love ditty bags so WOO-HOO!  

Okay ... gotta go.  See you (I hope) later   : )

I adore your ditty bag, Shirlee, and the sweet dried flowers are perfect for it.
Hope the eye Dr. goes well, and that we do not have to address you with an "argh mayte" but as you said hubby may find some fun in it. ;)
Have a great day and keep us posted.
