A Variety

Hello Fellow Bloggers...Since I wrote my last post, my Brother, Prosper, passed away from kidney failure. It has been a rough road but in between, there was a happy time with our son, Dale, being sworn into office as MHA (Member of the House of Assembly) for the NDP party. While Prosper was ill, which was eight weeks, Dale was campaigning in our Provincial Election in St. John's, NL., where he resides and was successful in his endeavours. Needless to say, we are very proud of his efforts and hard work and I am sure he will continue to work hard for the people who had faith in him and trusted him enough to elect him as their member.

Enough said on those two important items.

I am posting a picture of my "Give Away" on my Facebook Page named: "Anne's Original Hooked Rugs". There is just one week left for those of you who would like to visit my page and click the "LIKE" Button on the top right of the page; your name will be automatically entered to be drawn for this 14"x14" Mummers wall hanging. A few of you have already done so...There is absolutely no commitment and I WILL post it to you wherever you live...I just started this new page as a Business one a short time ago and for my visitors I thought it a good gesture, on the advice of others, to do that. Do take the time to click...more people make it more interesting....

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American Friends...hope you are enjoying this wonderful day...We have plenty to be thankful for

    My condolences on the lost of your brother Prosper and congratulations on Dale's appointment. You have every right to feel proud of your son.

    I'm anxiously awaiting your give away draw. Have a great week Anne. JB

    You have a very lovely blog and I truly enjoyed looking at your photos of your life on the Island of Newfoundland. Your rug hooking creations are truly beautiful. Merry Christmas to you and your family and A wish you a Very Happy and Healthy New Year. Hugs judy
