Giveaway Winnings!!!! I LOVE Them!

Hello!!  I just had the mailman stop and the house and drop off a package!!!  It is from Kelley from Hook and Needle  Kanknchester!!!!  I won her giveaway a while back and she sent me such awesome stuff.  First is a pile and I do mean pile of great fabrics. She must have known that I was just thinking that I really needed some new ones for the pin keeps I'm making. 

 Next, was a set of wool neat, a couple of pattern books, and some rusty jingle bells.

And finally, she said there would be a surprise inside.  It is my FAVORITE and I LOVE it!!!  This cute little punch needle cat pin keep.  Thanks so much.  You are too generous!!

Here are a couple of pics of our room remodel.  The first is the corner with the boards torn off. 

The next one is after is was full of insulation......boy that made a big mess.  Wow. 

This last one shows the dry wall they did yesterday. Some one is coming today to start mudding and finishing it.  In the corner I have paper with the navy and tan paint on them.  I think I am leaning toward the navy on the fireplace wall.  The burgundy I had was too brown and it's hard to match the kitchen's burgundy cupboards without using the same paint.  I don't really want to overkill.  The only thing I'm not sure of is if I'll like where the walls meet and the color is different.  I'm sure I'd get used to it and not even notice after awhile.

Gotta run for now.  I need to put the pretty blue tarps down.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
