At Long Last

It's been so long since I posted that I had almost forgotten the sequence!  The good news?  I finally have a wi-fi hotspot!  I just couldn't face another second wasted on posting on dial-up.  I have already saved so much time!  

It's been a mixed bag around the Stroud household.  Let's just chalk it up to being behind me and I, for one, cannot wait to see the rear end of 2013.  I'm not usually one to wish any time away but....

I have the long-awaited blog contest prizes ready to mail on Thursday!  Then I can reveal what the prizes actually are.  I hope everyone loves them!  (Two have already been delivered in person--they had forgotten they won!)

So, if the wi-fi works out, you can count on seeing more of me, more pics, and dare I say it in writing?  Perhaps some short videos--okay, okay, don't get too excited.  I think it's the fumes from the hotspot device!

Emily, hope you are doing better than okay.  Cindy, how was the surgery?  And to all my friends and loyal readers--thank you for being patient.  

And as a lovely finish to this post, please enjoy this stunning Mariner's Compass made by Cindy O.  Hand pieced, of course!

Special holiday hugs to all,

P.S.  This picture loaded in just seconds...I'm almost giddy!
