The bowl has spoken and we have a winner......

A mysterious mist swirled about.......

The three almighty chihuahuas sang into night.....

Oh mighty bowl of destiny.....

Bring forth and reveal the winner.......

A fabled hags claw reached into the omnipotent cauldron from which all prizes spring ..........

and draws forth that which is tinged with wonder......
and she who must be awarded is.........

Carol R from wondrous Avalon.......
you are to be the winner of the First Blogiversary......
congratulations -
The 3 magic chihuahuas, hag hand and I, the lowly keeper of the bowl bow to your destiny!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!

Once again thank you to all who participated and those that de-lurked to enter -
just knowing you are out there really makes this blogging fun!!!!

After the belching forth of the winner - I settled down and started the second of three samplers for Christmas presents - it is the first of the BBD Loose Feathers this year called "Where my Heart Blooms." It is for Rico's mom. I am adjusting to include some family initials, here is a snap of what was completed - not the most interesting -

While stitching away I started to re-watch the Sopranos from the beginning. I had forgotten what a creature Tony's mom really was - what a nasty piece of work!!! It is really hard to turn off the TV and go to bed and not stay up watching !!!

I am really behind in my Blog reading -
I need to get on that as I really like knowing what everyone is up to!!!!

Thanks again for stopping by!!!!

Take care,


  1. Congrats to Carol R, what a lucky duck!

    Can't wait to see more progress on the BBD xmas present!

  2. Love the pictures and descriptions of the Bowl Ceremony! That is the cleanest hag's claw I've seen...hag must take good care of itself...LOL!

    Congrats to Carol R...can't wait to see what you create for her!

  3. That was the best set of pictures and description ever Edgar! I felt like I was right there with you and Rico and the babies.... and I was giggling like a schoolgirl. I needed that laugh :) Congrats to Carol R, hoooooooray! I'm sure she will feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

  4. Congrats to Carol R! and.. OMG the first picture of the chihuahuas is adorable! Makes me miss my little one I had oh so many years ago. Can't wait to see further progress on your new project. I just love keeping up with what your stitching & doing. Have a great day Edgar!

  7. Love "The Sopranos". It helps that I recognize 90% of the places, since I grew up in that area. It makes me laugh because Tony reminds me of a couple people I know in real life! I'm glad I've outgrown my New Jersey "big hair",and luckily I was never into the leather pants thing.

  8. Congratulations, Miss Carol!!!!

    The Bowl of Destiny did good.. it just wasn't my time. *sigh* ;) Heh.

  9. Well, I happen to find this bit of ´Where My Heart Blooms´ extremely interesting to see, because I haven´t stitched it yet. I started with the border and made a boo-boo. Boohoo. Can't wait to see your progress.
    Congrats to lucky Carol :o)

  10. Oh, Edgar, you ROCK! Thanks for the ceremony broadcast...it was priceless! And as for Sopranos...I just finished watching the entire series last week for the third time and I am still amazed at how much I pick up.

  11. As you were holding the Bowl Ceremony I was enjoying the sunshine! I didn't feel a thing as I was drawn out of the Bowl although I think maybe I heard those cute little chihauhuas!

    Thanks Edgar - I look forward to my prize

  12. Yay! Congrats Carol! What a lucky girl. I love how all the dogs were really crowded around the bowl. Poor pups probably thought they were going to get a special treat.

    I am hooked on Sopranos...I've finally made it to the beginning of Season 6. It's taken some time. And yes Tony's mom is quite a witch!

  13. Congratulations, Carol R!

    Awesome rows of stitches, Edgar! ;oP
