What a week.... (and a giveaway)!

This past week hasn't been pleasant - to say the least!  We took last weekend off for Labor Day & got a lot done around here - including what I posted about in my last post on Labor Day.  That night, I got SICK!  I had a go round with Vertigo, and it's still not completely gone.  I can't remember the last time I crawled into bed & just stayed there for almost 2 full days.   I had to get up to go to the doctor and the meds have made me feel almost as bad as the rest of it.  She said it is sinus infection and inner ear trouble.  I'm still feeling woozy & sick at my stomach and only have one more day of meds left.  UGH!  I sure hope I feel better after I finish these meds!  I don't want to have to go through this again.

Yesterday I spent the day with Nicole.  She's been away most of the summer & I sure have missed her & her visits.  Hopefully she will come back again soon.  Thanks again for all your help yesterday Nicole, I sincerely appreciate it! :-)

 A new Michael's store opened in Sumter and today was the start of their grand opening week.  I wanted to go & so did my mom, so off we went.  We had lunch at Five Guys which shares a parking lot with Michael's, don't you LOVE their burgers & fries?  I sure do!  I didn't buy too much as I really didn't need anything - did get a couple of small gifts for my mom & niece, a couple of little things for my grab bag for the Pals Fall Fling, some felt to finish some ornaments, couple of things from the dollar bins, and registered for a couple of drawings.  When we were about done, it was time to spin the prize wheel!  (I need one of those for the Pals Retreats - wish they weren't so expensive!)   I had looked at what was on the table (and on the wheel) & to be honest, it was mostly "junk" imho - did not look as good as what was listed on the prize wheel.  I had the chance to win a pretty "ugly" jewelry kit, yarn in either pastel pink or baby blue, some paint brushes and paints (not to be given away together!), a kids Science Fair kit, a pair of jewelry pliers, a magnet, Crayola Markers, a couple of things that I THINK had something to do with Cricut or some sort of scrapbooking, a $10 Gift Card and a small Ott Light.  So I took my spin - and guess what I won?  No really - Guess!  This is what the giveaway is all about! ;-) (Hint - It obviously wasn't the items that had to do with Scrapbooking! LOL). 

Make a guess by leaving a comment to this post with what you think I won & I'll pick a winner later in the week from one of the correct guesses.  I've told two people, so sorry my friends, but your guesses won't count.  What will you win?  It will be a surprise - but you can tell me if you prefer something stitching related or fat quarters for sewing/finishing if you're the winner! ;-)

Hope you have a great week ahead - Happy Stitching!!

PS- My mom also had a spin on the prize wheel.  You can make a 2nd guess in your post as to what she won if you'd like - I'll pick two winners later in the week!

Wow, what timing, lol! Six minutes after you posted this!

I'm going to guess an Ott Lite. At least I hope you won an Ott Lite! It would be even better for you if it were one of those new battery-operated ones!

Teresa S. said...

I think you won the Ott lite and your mom won the gift certificate. Something stitchy related would be nice. Hope you are feeling 100% really soon!

Karen said...

i think you won the ott lite as well. and your mom won a kids science kit. LOL

if i was to win, i would love fabric/etc for finishing. :)

Nina said...

If I can win, I'd be happy with some lakeside linens for my projects :)
Thanks for the giveaway, have a great week!

Hazel said...

I think you won the $10 gc. Please pop by my blog for another giveaway! x

Robin said...

Oh this is like spinning the prize wheel ourselves. I am guessing you won something totally unrelated to stitching - you won the kid's science fair kit. And mom won the magnet!

Fat quarters would be fun.

Hillery said...

My guess is the Ott light too. Your Mom... the yarn.
Hope your feeling better.

Margaret said...

Well, I'm going with wishful thinking and say you won the Ott lite. :D As for your mom, maybe she won the jewelry pliers? Thanks for the giveaway! I like both stitching and quilting so the prize doesn't matter to me!

The Queen Bee said...

My guess.... the pink yarn... seeing as I know you mentioned not liking pink. Wouldn't that just figure?

Marion said...

Marion said...

Oh, and I think your mom won the gift card!

Anna van Schurman said...

You won the gift card. I was gong to say Ott light, but too many other people said it first.

natalyK said...

I have a feeling it was the "ugly" jewelry kit since you emphasized UGLY. I would love to be in your giveaway and would love either something stitchy or fat-quarters.

Deborah said...

You probably won the ugly jewerly kit. I really hope not. Your Mom maybe won the Ott light.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

I'm guessing the Ott lite, too. Did Mom win the paint brushes? I'd be happy with any stitchy thing!

Kat said...

I'm going to guess the paints. And hopefully, you mom won the brushes, so you can share!

Thanks for the chance!

jeanneil said...

I think you got the pastel pink yarn, and I think your mom got the ugly jewelry kit.

too_busy_to_stitch said...

OK, I'm guessing you won the brushes and your mum won the paint!

Diana said...

I'm going to guess the crayola markers. My second guess would be the Ott lite.

Hope you're feeling better.

Myra said...

Amy, I sure hope you feel better soon. My husband had a bout with vertigo several years ago and it wasn't fun at all.

I think you won the ugly jewelry kit and your mom won the pink yarn. :o) I first thought you won the Ott lite but I wanted to guess a little differently.

Ellen said...

My guess is that you won the ugly jewelery kit and your mom won the GC.

Some linens for stitching would be lovely.

Hugs,

Melody said...

I hope you won the ott light. At least that is my guess...

Hope you are feeling better.

Paisley said...

Hope your vertigo is gone!

Sherry said...

I think you won the ugly jewelry kit! LOL

Your mom probably won the magnet. =)

Lelia said...

Ott light &
Ugly Jewelry kit

Carol R said...

The Ottlite for you and the gift certificate for your mom!

If I had spun I would probably have won the most useless thing on the table. I won a raffle years ago - the first raffle I'd ever won - my prize? - a bottle of vodka and 200 cigarettes. I neither drink nor smoke!

Paula D said...

Well, I hope you won something you could use.so I choose the $10 GC and your mom the Ott light. What ever you won, hope it is either used or passed on! thanks for the giveaway.

Nan said...

I'm guessing you won the pretty ugly jewelry kit and your mom the science kit. :0) Can't wait to hear what it actually was.

Daffycat said...

I guess you won an ugly jewelry kit and your mom won the OTT-LITE??? At least I hope one of you won it! Fun giveaway!
