The WINNING~EST January Ever!

January can be such a boring, dismal month. Does anyone else agree? It seems like it's kind of a let down after the holiday hiatus of decor and fabulous festivities. It's back to the grinding wheel, back to the dreary everyday stuff...

...except for this January!
THIS January I won some cool stuff! I'm about to show you!
This is the January snowflake
from Fairiebee!!!
Her blog makes for a nice visit.

It came packaged with the
"manufacturer's label" and everything!
You can read here the pattern,
thread size and everything!
Shall we have a closer look at this little confection?
Awww...isn't it cute!?


Next, on the Winning Ticket
is this lovely
Blue Coat Girl
that I won from Pat Winter!!!

Let's look at her, shall we?
Isn't she adorable?
Rumor has it she is on her way to me right now!
Thank you, Pat!
I am so honored to win something that you made.
I am a great admirer of Pat's work.
If you haven't seen her work it's worth the time
to visit her blog.
She is a gifted needle artist!
Last, but not least,
I won an avalanche of awards from
Bella Sinclair!

Since I always right click on awards and
click on "Save Picture as..."
This is what I got, LOL!
Ummmmm...Thanks Bella!
This is certainly worth a mention because if you haven't
taken the time to see Bella's Blog with her
wonderfully whimsical artwork,
then I'd like to suggest you consider
going to visit her blog!
You just might fall in love with her drawings.
She's also a great bloggy friend.
Thank you for coming by to visit and letting me share my winning January with you! I'd love it if you let said "Hi" by leaving a comment! It's getting late and January is almost over! February is just around the corner. For some of you it has already arrived! By the time most of you have read this it will be here for sure! Here's to a winning February for all of us!
P.S. Don't forget, there's still time to sign up for the One World One Heart giveaway! You have until February 11, 2009 to sign up by posting a comment on the giveaway post!

Bella Sinclair said...

How funny! A snowflake floated down, then you got hit with an avalanche, and a little angel saying it's cold outside. :D Brrrrr, that's January for you, all right!

The snowflake is be-YOO-tiful! Wow, I feel like I'm in a ketchup commercial. Anticipation, baby!

And that little angel is divine! Ooooh, how cute she is! And she's singing one of my favorite songs.

By the way, if you want to add just an individual award to your sidebar, you can find them in individual files on my sidebar. ;) You deserve them ALL.

Hi Bella Sinclair! LOL! I like your story, LOL! Actually I like your version much better. Maybe I should just delete the post and copy and paste your comment in with pictures, LOL! Wadda ya think? ;)
Oh, thanks for telling me. You know, if I hadn't been so tired when I was posting this I would've noticed the individual awards sitting on your sidebar, LOL!

Thank you, Mona Van Dijk!

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

You've won some really cute things for January, I hope February is a blessing to you as well. Please say a little prayer for everyone out there who is without power, and also the workers who are working so hard to restore it. Your blog is a ray of light in the darkness! Thank You. :)

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

I found your blog while browsing the net. Tatting Chic? Fabulous name. I learnt tatting when I was in the 6th grade and i was good in it. AM not sure these days if I can even do a loop.

Your blog rock, Lady! Love here and promise to come often. Job well done!

Gina said...

TattingChic said...

Thank you, Tattycat! I appreciate the visit. I hope you enjoy your visits to the other links if you decide to go on over to visit them, too.

Hi Stitchy McFloss! I have said several prayers for the people without power. I feel very fortunate to live where it is warm and lovely and my heart goes out to those who are without warmth and other needs.

Welcome Richie 2ts Inspires. So glad to hear you once tatted as a young girl! I hope you pick up the shuttle again soon! Come back and visit often, you're more than welcome!

Thanks, Gina! Oooh, close enough to visit Pat! How cool! I would LOVE to go and take a class from her or something like that if I lived close enough to visit.

Thanks Pat! I will keep a look out for a blue coat, LOL! :)

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Thank you so much for the prayers. I know that I will be so thankful when we have lights again. It's funny how you miss your routine when you no longer can follow it. :)

Hi Stitchy McFloss! How are you able to stay online without power? There was some other bloggers who did a post from a local hospital who had an online service for people who were stranded without power. How are you managing???

AngelDoll said... thinks I am on wrong post to be entered in your giveaway...but I will try anything to be in your 'books'. Thank you for your comments on my post..they are most appreciated and most are a lovely person...only wish I could TAT as lovely as you...I did learn how to needle tat last summer but I need lots of practice and forget how I did everything. Getting old is not
Have a wonderful spring!

TattingChic said...

Hi Angel Doll, thanks for stopping by. I seem to remember some of your tatting from last summer! You did rather well and your stitches were very neat and even. You have a lovely Spring, too...when it arrives! :)

Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! said...

I missed this post. Your giveaway gifts are so cute especially the pretty blue coat little girl!
I have been wanting to email you with this question, but I can't find a link to email you, so I'll just ask it here.
You're tatting projects are so beautiful, and I would love to get my hands on some of it... do you think maybe I could swap some of my scrapbook-y talent for some of your tatting-y talent? Don't feel bad at all if you can't! It's just been on my mind for a while. :D hugs.

TattingChic said...

Hi Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! I'm glad we finally got ahold of each other!!! I'm excited about our swappy~deal! :)
