A Winner, A Car, A Castle and some Geese!

The StoryPatches winner is number 5--Alycia who said..."Sounds so interesting. I always wonder where tech will take us next!"  Congratulations Alycia.  I will email you so you can send me your address so I can get your prize in the mail.
 I am also a winner this weekend, I bought myself a new car!  It is Boston Red and is a Hyundai Veloster.  I love it!

 Today Kathy and Barb (a last minute stand in for Randy) got up early and toured Torvea Castle in Phoenix.  It was a great tour and I learned a lot about the history of the area too.  We were able to go inside in the basement and first floor as well as outside and all around the grounds.  They have a virtual tour of the upstairs floors because there is only one way up and down and so code won't allow tours to go up there.
I loved this cool thing over the faux fireplace.  Apparently the guys building the Orphium at the same time as the castle was being done put this medallion in.  So if I ever get to that theater I will be looking for them.  You can also see the beautiful stenciling on the wall (it was also on the ceiling) which really was gorgeous too!  

 I also got a perm this weekend--so my hair can grown out a bit.

 Only a little bit of sewing happened this weekend.  I made the Talkin' Turkey geese in green and grey--five more colors to go.
 And I managed to make my weekly Wild and Goosey block.  Tomorrow back to work.  The weekends go too fast!
