Champions...Again!

Can I be a proud momma for a moment?? Last year when my DS college golf team won the Carolina's regionals, I was proud.....And, since they were regional winners, they were one of thirteen teams who qualified for the National Golf finals in Chautauqua, NY...Man, I was so proud of them for their accomplishments!    Well.....They have done it again~~~

Way to go Phillip and the Sandhills Community College Mens Golf team for winning regionals again and qualifying for the Junior College National Golf  Finals~~  I plan on begging my principal for 3 days off from school so I can go up to New York and watch these very deserving young men play their hearts out and who knows, they may win the National title this year!!!  Way to go guys!

 Hard work DOES pay off~~ (Phillip is on the far right)


Oh, and Happy Birthday yesterday Phillip~~~ My "baby" is now 20....Where did the time go???

~~~~~~~~~~~

On the stitchy front this week, I have been busy stitching 2 exchange pieces that are due out in June... Looking at the calendar, I can't believe it will be May tomorrow!! So, I knew I needed to get busy! But, I did have a couple deliveries land on my front porch this week....I love seeing the postal truck these days~

First, I was one of Amy of FL's  five giveaway winners......Man, o man, did she hook me up, or what/???  Check out the array of charts she gifted me!!! Don't look too close, because MANY of these designs will be stitched and gifted back to you guys in way of exchange pieces and RAKs....Thanks so VERY much Amy~~ I love everything you had in my giveaway win!!

~~Giveaway 5 winnings~~



Also, I was gifted a wonderful package from my generous friend Marylin of France!! Marylin has become a wonderful blogging friend and she knows I love French designs.....!! My box from her overfloweth with not only an awesome cross stitch book filled with 10 French samplers, but she also included some glorious smelling French perfume and 2 bags of French coffee.....Can I just tell you, this French coffee is heavenly!!!  And, I am smelling like a rose blossom now thanks to Marylin!!


I am so excited today because I plan on finally meeting Myra~~ Many of you follow her blog and know her as the accomplished stitcher she is....Well, we live relatively near one another here in North Carolina...And, after several previous attempts, we are finally meeting today! I feel like I "know" so many of you through blogging but it is so nice to put a face with a name.....

In closing, I want to extend words of support to many of you out there who have been in the line of these awful storms this spring. Although you may have not had a direct impact, many of you have friends or family who might have been affected. Times are tough right now with all the devastation  brought on by Mother Natures wrath....I plan on going through all my closets tomorrow and coming up with a trunkful of items I can donate, so hopefully those who have lost it all, will soon be able to recieve needed items to start over..... Won't you consider doing the same???

Have a safe weekend my friends,

Faye

Sherry said...

Congratulations to your son and his team! What a haul you won from Amy! Have fun with it. I am going to clean out some closets this week too for donations. All the people who have absolutely nothing now is so sad and makes me thankful for what I do have.

Anne said...

Congrats to your son and his team Faye!! What a proud moment for your family! And holy cow what an amazing win! Look at all those patterns! I wouldn't know where to start!!!

I also pray for those families and communities that have been affected by the horrible tornadoes and storms. We just can't believe it has happened. Watching the news report on the devastation made me cry. Where can I donate to? (We live in Canada and not sure about what organizations accept clothing donations, Red Cross?)

Siobhan said...

Woohoo!! Congratulations to your son! That is fantastic news.

What a great win! Love the gifts from Marylin, too!

Bekca said...

Happy stitching to you!

Beth said...

Congratulations Philip!! I used to be a golfer, and I know you can't be good without a lot of effort. Good going Philip!!

WOWSERS what a haul! Great giveaway win. You are probably the only stitcher I know that could go through all of those charts. Can't wait to see them finished.

Lynn said...
