Celebration Giveaway!

And just what are we celebrating? You may remember a few days ago I mentioned that I had been spending lots of time in the hospital with my 8 year old Sean who had a nasty bad appendix removed last week. Well, he is home now and so we need to celebrate with a giveaway!


DanDoh Scarf ~ Free PatternI posted about this scarf pattern and yarn HERE a few weeks ago. You can read all about it there, but if you want to own it, you need to leave a comment below telling me what kind of project or activity you would bring along if you had to spend days in the hospital waiting for someone you love to get better. All are welcome to enter, but comments like "Love the scarf" will not count, even if you really do love the scarf! You gotta follow the rules! And I need to be able to contact you by email without hunting it down, so if your profile is set to no-reply make sure you leave your email address in your comment. Feel free to share this giveaway with friends, but please only one entry per person. I'll draw a winner when Sean goes back to school, so you have at least a few days!

It will be so nice to have dinner tonight with everyone at the table, and I think we will all sleep better being together under the same roof. What a week!

Happy Stitching!

  • So glad to hear that Sean is home and on the mend! I would probably take some crochet thread with me to make bookmarks, so that I could give them to the Nurses and Aides....( I did that when my Mom was in the Hospital)...it's a nice portable project. I may bring an "easy" shawl to work on. Maybe I would work on an Amigurumi (crochet)...that's always fun and quick....so many projects to choose from...I love having my knitting and crochet with me wherever I go...sure does pass the time!
    Love ya,
    Merry ♥

  • Hi Mary Grace, so glad your son is doing better! I have spent many days with my husband during his many back surgeries and when I look back at my applique that I did, I think of those days andam so glad they are over. I usually bring applique or my knitting. As a pediatric nurse I always like to see the things Mom's bring to keep their minds busy! Thanks so much

  • I read. Nothing new - something well read. My hands simply will not wrap around a project.

    Glad your son is home. You will both feel better with him recovering at home.

  • Glad Sean is home and recovered. I actually started quilting many years ago when my oldest was born at 25 weeks. One hundred days in the hospital gave me plenty of time for learning to quilt. I hope never to have a similar experience, but if I do, a quilting project will go with me.

  • I am so happy to hear that Sean is better and at home. If I am at the hospital for any length of time I like to knit a felted project. It has to be big so you have a lot of knitting to so and if you make a mistake it is not so noticeable once it is felted. I think a bag would be the project I would work on if it was going to be a long time.
    Today I was at the hospital with my son who was in a car accident and worked on a shawl as that was what I had otn that I could grab.

  • I am so happy for Sean and you and the rest of your family! SO glad everything is better.

    I would take my drawing supplies and a couple books. If I am worried, sometimes I can't concentrate on one thing, so I try to have a couple options.

    And the scarf IS lovely!

  • Glad to hear your son is doing better! I would bring my crochet hook and yarn - we are currently working on hats for cancer patients since it's October. Thanks for the giveaway! Dawn ~ vermont66@yahoo.com ~ www.dawnscomfycorner.blogspot.com

  • I'm so glad your little darling is back at home. I have brought along some embroidery to hospitals, but my mother complained that it made me look old. Oh well. I really enjoy hand sewing baby garments even if I haven't made very many that way, so that's what I would bring, a nice batiste gown to embroider and sew. (Even if mom doesn't like it)

  • Hi, I'm stopping by to say how much I loved your quilt today at Quilting Gallery. I just used Sandy Gervais's Mix & Mingle to make a table runner also using the Road to Tennessee block. Glad to hear your son is on the mend. I've been knitting the Bow Tie scarves as gifts and they are great to 'take along'.

  • I too know how that feels to have a your family split, I went through that through Christmas last year when my grandbaby was born and then put in the neonatal unit for 23 days. I'm so glad your little man is home. I would work on 2 different projects, hand embroidery and crochet, I'm making a quilt and also take some needle and yarn and crochet flowers for headbands. Thanks for the chance, I'd love to win the scarf it is beautiful.
