A VERY Belated Thanks

Posting on Tuesday about my prize from LAM's Blog made me wonder if I had posted my thanks for another giveaway from the spring. I'm mortified to discover that the post was partially written, but that I hadn't posted it yet.

I hope Theresa will forgive me for my very belated thanks!

An embarrassingly long time ago, Theresa had a give-away to celebrate her first blogoversary.

I was one of the lucky winners! Look at this gorgeous box of yarn she sent me!!

These colors are great for me, so I'm probably going to knit something for myself. Theresa generously included the pattern for this cardigan (On Ravelry: Peony by Marie Wallin). I've also love this leaf kimono in this yarn on Ravelry.

I'm not quite ready to start knitting something fabulous from this yarn. But it does seem like it will make a beautiful garment, perhaps to wear next summer.

Brittie, our first Brittany

To thank Theresa, she requested that the winners donate to the animal shelter of their choice. I chose our local shelter, the NH SPCA. They're a fabulous shelter.

Our first Brittany came from the SPCA. Plus, Bailey has attended two classes there, "Oh Behave!" when he was about a year old, and the stop barking class he attended last summer.

I even used to volunteer at the SPCA. Very fun and rewarding! (I usually did fund-raising or events because of the fear that I'd fall in love with too many dogs!!)

A huge belated thank you to Theresa!! Here's hoping for many more blogoversaries!!

Beautiful is never too late to say thank you! Great choice of charity-love the Brittanies!

Theresa said...

Sue, you are most welcome! Glad you like the yarn.
Yeah for the NH ASPCA too.

I was also a beneficiary of Theresa's give away last year and donated in Charlie's name, since we enjoy that spoiled brat, thanks to the SPCA. All our pets are rescue but he's the only one from an organization. I cannot imagine life without pets.
