I'd Like To Thank The Academy...

....oh, wait...that's NEXT week, LOL! Oh, and incidentally, I didn't even get a nomination this year! I guess there's not a "film genre" for tatting blogs, LOL! Maybe next year!

So, this thank you post is actually to thank the generous participants in the One World One Heart gypsy caravan giveaway event whose giveaways I was lucky enough to win!

Well, just like the movies the "cast of characters" will be listed in order of appearance. LOL! In other words, if you were the first to comment on my blog to tell me I won then you are listed first! :)

Thanks for visiting me today.
I am still in Wendy heaven.

Krystle said...

You should email Georgia about the class! We have been working on some killer stuff lately.

Anywho, Congrats on all the fun arriving at your door!

Lelia said...

Congratulations on your wins!! I didn't get anything - but so enjoyed participating. Maybe next year

Tattycat said...

You are just about the luckiest person I know. If I ever go to Vegas again, you will have to meet me there. LOL All of your prizes are great. Have lots of fun!

Bejeweled said...

Whoa! You cleaned up, you lucky girl! Wanna buy a lottery ticket for me? LOL!!!!

Enjoy all your wonderful goodies and it was so nice to meet you through the OWOH!!

TattingChic said...

Thank you for your kind congrats, Linda! Now, in response to stitch night... shuttles (check)... thread (check)... California (check we're in the same state- check), LOL! I think We've gotta few more "check"'s on the list, but we're getting closer! ;)

Hi Rosemary! THank you for stopping by to visit while you are still in "wendy heaven". I really appreciate the tip and will make a point to visit when I go to visit that area again.

Thanks for the congrats, Krystle! I should email Georgia. Problem is, I'm usually working when the online class is going on so I haven't been keeping up with it. I just have had health issues this week that have kept me from work.

Hi Lelia, thank you for your congratulations. I am sorry to hear you didn't win. It was worth it just to participate and giveaway something, don't you think! That has been a joy in and of itself!

LOL! Yes, Tattycat if you got to Vegas let me know, but I have to tell you that "my" vegas is very different from most people's vegas as I don't gamble and I hate the slot machines.....boring....! Love the shows and some of the nice food and shopping, LOL! I always go to church when I'm in vegas, too...and no I don't mean the little chapel on the strip either, LOL! :) ((HUGS)) to you, dear dear friend! :)

Yes, Bejewelled, it has been fun getting to know you through OWOH! I've thoroughly enjoyed it! So glad we "met"!!! You know, I really have never purchased a lottery ticket! Maybe that should change, LOL!

Rose Haven said...


Thanks for the visit...and nice comments about Celeste's blog make-over.

Fete et Fleur said...

I'm reeling from the amount of LUCK you seem to wield! Could you send me something of yours after you have touched it. Maybe your lucky streak will rub off on me. (tongue in cheek);~)


Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

How fun! You really scored, didn't you?

Stephanie said...

This was a terrific way to say thank you!! YOU were a very lucky girl!! I was feeling a little bit guilty that I had one more than one at the OWOH...I too was a lucky girl. Wasn't that fun??? Enjoy all your pretties!!


TattingChic said...

LOL! Well, thank you, Karen! Now if only that luck spilled over into my "real" life and didn't just seem to happen in my "virtual" life, then things would be fabulous!

Nancy, you are too cute! Wouldn't it be great if it really worked that way!

Yes, Karla! I scored, LOL!

Thank you, Stephanie! I appreciate your comment. I really wanted the bloggers that I won from to know how much I do appreciate their lovely talents and the fact that they are sharing them with me.
