The winner and another little finish

Hi all.  First off, I need to clear up a misunderstanding, that is my fault.  In the post before the offer, I mentioned that I would be offering the charts.  In the offer post, I didn't specifically state that it was the charts, not the samplers that I was offering.  I did mention about using your own colors but it was my fault for not being specific.  It's the charts.  I held my breath when Random was choosing a number because if it was the samplers that the winner was expecting, I would have to say good-bye to these babies.   Believe it or not, the name scramble and then number, came out to be the very first entry - Helen.  Whew!  She mentioned in her entry that she would love to win the sampler CHARTS!!  Helen, I need your address and I will get these in the mail to you.  Have fun with your color choices.  Thanks to everyone for participating.
Now my other little finish. 
I'm sorry I didn't follow the design exactly, but I was constantly interrupted or distracted and made so many errors, that I changed the spacing to accommodate them.  I love this design.  Thank you Eszter!  The colors I used ...
DMC 3857, 3011, 3021, 830, 831(or 3829) - can't remember and I have floss bags everywhere.  My border is only one row instead of the three charted, and I may go back and add them before finishing. 
I bought two Scarlet Letter samplers on Ebay today.  Both buy-it-now and I grabbed them as soon as I got the notice.
Mary Elliot and Sally Hunt.  Scarlet Letter still has my favorite piece, Hannah Breed, which you can see here.  There are many that I consider favorites, but she is at the top. 
I bought a few odd color and shape pumpkins today and took a white knuckle ride to get our baseboard.  Need to pick that paint color quick.  Thanks for all your suggestions!  
To Jocelyn - In the peach recipe, you have to use the box of Jello labeled "cook and serve" and not "instant".
That's it.  I'm wiped out with another virus and the second part of the pneumonia shot I got today is throbbing and spreading under my arm and across my chest. 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for visiting!
Edited - Right after I published this post, I read that Cathey has passed.  I am so upset and angry I could rip down my walls.

I am so sorry to hear about your friends passing. It is never easy to lose a dear friend. It looks from all the pictures that she left you all with many many great memories of her and that at least is something to hold onto.

Lovely little finish. Congrats to your winner.
At least dear Cathey is no longer struggling and suffering.♥

Wow, as much as I visit your blog I can't believe I missed so many posts!!!
Congratulations to Helen - lucky winner.
I'm so sorry about the passing of Cathey - it's so hard to lose anyone in our lives - sending prayers to her family and you.
Goodness you are really having a siege of awful things going on - I hope you feel better soon.

Beautiful finish and love your new charts too. I too was saddened to hear about Cathey. I didn't read her blog but found out about her after the pumpkins.

Karen said...

Death is a stealer and a cheat. And so is Satan. May God Bless the Family and the child that she so loved. If you need help putting your walls back up let me know. On to Hanna Breed, I have the chart and the sampler not finished. I would be glad to share the chart, but if that is not allowable than I understand. I don't want to hurt anyone's business at all!
