Friday Contest

It has been a cold week here in the south, with ice and snow blanketing many areas. We were fortunate not to get any precipitation here, but my heart goes out to those affected by the ice storms. My son is an a/c and heating repairman in south Mississippi, and he said the road conditions were the worst he has ever seen (although growing up in East Texas, he didn't see a lot of  ice.) 

But, it is Friday, so how about a contest? I will give one person their choice of any PDF pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com. 

I will select the winner at random, and send out the patterns in the morning (Saturday.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back in the morning to see if you won. 
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)

To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
Do you drive in icy conditions, or do you prefer to just stay home until it thaws? 
This contest is now closed. 
Please check back soon for my next contest.

Ruby Grace

I would like you to meet the newest addition to our family, my beautiful granddaughter, Ruby Grace.
Ruby was born January 18, and has already wrapped us all around her tiny finger.
Here she is modeling the snuggle sack and blanket that I crocheted for her. It is part of a new set called "Fairy Garden" that I hope to have available in a month or so.
 I am so blessed!

Merry Christmas

Can you believe Christmas is only a week away? 
Have you crocheted anything for Christmas this year, either gifts or items for your home? 





I have been in such a design slump lately; I started a set of Christmas doilies way back in the summer, and they still are not finished. I hope I will have them finished in time for next year!
But I hope you are doing well and enjoying this lovely season, and please know that even though I have not been posting much, I think of you often!
Merry Christmas!

The Winner Is...and Happy Halloween!

The winner today is Susan.
Susan, if you will send me an email at:
bellacrochet.info@yahoo.com 
and let me know which one of my  patterns you would like, I will get it right out to you. 

I used to love scary movies, but I could never handle the gory ones. Now days, my favorite 'scary' movies are older ones that combine humor with just a bit of scare. Here are some of my all time favorites:
'Arsenic and Old Lace' with Cary Grant
'The Ghost and Mr. Chicken' with Don Knotts
'I Married a Witch' with Veronica Lake
'Murder He Said' with Fred McMurry and Marjorie Main
'It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!'
I hope your day is filled with lots of treats and no tricks! 
Happy Halloween!

The Winner Is...and Why Not?

The winner of yesterdays contest is Pam S. 
Pam, if you will send me an email at:
bellacrochet.info@yahoo.com 
and let me know which one of my  patterns you would like, I will get it right out to you. 

I loved reading your favorite scary stories (but believe me, I understand those of you who do  not want to read them, too!) 
The scariest book I ever read was called "Cold Moon Over Babylon" by Michael McDowell. It was so terrifying and sad that I could never read it a second time, even though  it was a really good book (if that makes any kind of sense- this is why I don't do book reviews on Amazon!) It is certainly the kind of book that will give you nightmares!

But I was thinking, since it has been so long since I had a contest, why not go ahead and have another one today?
So, let's have another contest! 
I will give one person their choice of any PDF pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com. 
I will select the winner at random, and send out the patterns in the morning (Thursday.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back in the morning to see if you won. 
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)
To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
Do you have a favorite scary movie or tv program? (I know some of you answered this yesterday, it is okay to repeat your answer if you want to.)
This contest is now closed. 
Please check back soon for my next contest.
