Winner Announcement Delayed

I'm sorry everyone, I will not be announcing the winner of my giveaway today.
There has been some very sad news in the stitching community this morning and I just can't bring myself to compile names and set it all up for the draw. Forgive me.
I promise to do it after Christmas.

However, I do want to wish everyone a wonderful, happy, safe and warm holiday! I hope that everyone has time to catch up with family, friends and some stitching.
All the best to you and yours.

Oh no Mel! Is it Rene? I'm at work and can't access my yahoo at all.....if you're posting this I can guess what it is. So sad.....

Sorry to hear that. Big hug to you.

I think we are all stunned and upset by the recent news we've received. It just goes to show how tight knit we all are with each other whether we've met in person or not. Trust me, the giveaway announcement can wait. I'm having trouble doing simple little household chores and my son keeps giving me hugs when I brust into tears off and on. I truly only feel like stitching...kinda like a tribute to Rene. I stitch in her honour and memory even though she is not gone yet, it sure feels like it since we will never read about her antics again.

Don't worry mel. I am sure everyone will understand. And if they don't well tough.

Know that Rene has touched many and the power of prayer is great. My pray is that she is strong enough to enjoy this Christmas with her dear Tracey and her son. And that a miracle happens and that the doctors are wrong.

we understand Mel. I had trouble posting the winner of my give-away as well. Luckily I only had about 10 people who participitated, so it was done quickly.
