My Prize Came

I was so excited to get the prize that I won yesterday in the mail. Nancy's 300 post contest . The prize that I received was this great sock yarn that I have not worked with before. Can't wait to try it. It is so soft. And she added to it a bag of 4 skeins of novelty yarn. Made me think of halloween. Thanks so much Nancy for a great contest!!

On a sadder note, I also won another contest that came yesterday too, but the envelope was empty. I had won a beaded ring and when it came, it had been tampered with. There was a hole in the side of the envelope and when I opened it, the tissue also had a hole in it too. So, someone had to have felt through the evelope that is was a ring and made them a little entrance and pulled it out. It is so sad that we can't even trust our postal service.

Ohhh...you are SOOO lucky...well, except on the ring thing!!

I pretty much send everything delivery confirmation and pay extra to insure....it's about the only way I can be sure that my pkg. arrive safely!! It is indeed a shame that we can't mail and trust the postal service to deliver safely!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about the ring! That's just awful! I can't believe (well, actually I can) that someone would do that. Grrrr.

Sorry about the ring. Congrats on winning the yarn. My SP11 gave me some Shi Bui-I can't decide what socks to make with it?

The jerk! I hope whomever it was got a nasty paper-cut! Don't worry, I will get another one out to you. Third time is the charm! :)

Hi Cindy,
Sorry your other package got tampered with, that's just mean. But, I am glad my package made it to you safely. Enjoy it, and thanks for entering!
