Prizes, RR's, and Just for Fun

Look at this lovely prize I received from Jolene's giveaway. I am so thrilled with these. I love scissors and this fob is perfect. Thanks so much for your generosity, Jolene!


Finished my part of Paula's RR - Open Heart by Drawn Thread. This is such a pretty, delicate design - very enjoyable stitching.

Before...

After...

These few pics are just for fun - (hope DH doesn't mind). But it was just too funny at the time. Sleuthing detectives, let's see how good you are. From the clickable pictures, can anyone tell me what DH was doing before and after and what each item is? It really was hilarious, but I guess you had to be there at the time...:)




Hint - DH used to play rec softball and could easily throw from the outfield home....above the backstop sometimes. LOL

What a nice prize! Lucky girl.

The RR looks really pretty.

Not sure what is in the tree in the first pic, but my guess DH was trying to throw things at it.

Pretty stitching. Was DH playing frizbee?

Dani - tkdchick said...

That RR looks just great!

Great prize winner! I do love those little Putnams! Sweet! The RR stitching is so pretty - looks like fun. As for DH's tree exploration, I've no idea, other than something's stuck - one looks like a kitty, but don't know what that colorful thing is. Second looks like a big frisbee, and third looks like he's ready to whack at it...

Jen said...

Great prize. Love The Drawn Thread RR great stitching. You'll have to tell us what the DH was up to

Karen said...

Oh, that's a great prize - those little scissors are so cute! I can't wait to see Paula's piece - it looks like fun :)

I would guess something got stuck in the tree - but not sure if any of those are the original stuckee, attended by the items used to try to get it unstuck, or something else entirely :) Mine would have cut the tree down... with help from his buddies.

I have no idea what your DH is doing! LOL But I have an idea that I want to steal those scissors from you! LOL Wait...I think I have your address around here somewhere!

Lisa said...

The RR looks fabulous & a very lovely prize you have there too :-)

Vicky L said...

The prize is wonderful and lovely stitching!

Karen said...

Love the needlerol...lucky win!

I know it was windy this weekend but can't imagine how all that stuff got into the tree???

Vicki in CO said...

Wonderful prize; I think I'm addicted to scissors. The RR stitching is great!

Congrats on a great prize! Paula's RR looks awesome and you did lots on it!! Looks like rope stuck in the first photo and then more things thrown to get the others down. At least it's not toilet paper. Our house got TP'ed years ago, Carl didn't want to and couldn't get it all down, so he lit it on fire. Little did he know there were several rolls caught in the fork of the trunk and it started a fire. That tree has been taken down since! LOL

Good for you on the win, Jolene has such a big heart with her giveaways! Love your addition to the RR, lovely stitching, Carolyn.

Sorry, I just really have no idea on the tree photos, but count me on the side of those wanting to know the story!!

Terry said...

Stitching is lovely as always. So, what exactly was he doing?? Playing frisbee? I think I see one in one of the pics but.... lol

Carol said...

What a pretty piece you're working on, Carolyn--I love stitching with soft pastels like that. Love those darling scissors, too :)

Lovely, delicate stitching on the R & R. Nice prize!!!
Love those scissors and now all you need is the little owl pattern and you use the scissors for his eyes. Very cute. Do you have it?
Can't figure out what your DH is doing but I will probably kick myself when I find out.
Love your blog but have not been around much. Thanks for you thoughts and prayers for Knee ~ Hi I appreciate them so much.
God Bless ~

Hmmmm, they look like various dog toys to me. Was he perhaps playing fetch with the tree .... er ... I mean the dog? Too funny!

Rene la Frog said...

Nice prize...I'm addicted to scissors and just saw some at the LNS that are on the top of my must hace list.

The RR is beautiful!

Not sure what your DH was trying to get out of the tree bur I hope it wasn't a kitty.

Sharon said...

Thanks for the compliments, Carolyn on my stitching and grandchildren, you are so sweet. Wow that is a great prize, that SB fob is so pretty and the scissors too. Your RR stitching is just gorgeous. XOXO

Kathy said...

Fabulous prize Carolyn. Those scissors are adorable.

That RR is so pretty. Such soft colors.

And I just can't figure out what DH is doing?

JOLENE said...

Your Open Heart is stitching up beautiful. Very delicate looking. I so love that Shepherds Bush fob, I think I will need to make myself one (hehehe). Not sure about the tree, I see a tangled up rope, a piece of wood and a garden hose. Is there a bee nest up there????
