Hi all! I'll admit I wasn't ready for this! Though in many ways July felt eternal (it was soooooo hot and sooooo humid!), I find it hard to wrap my head around the fact that this is the last week of July.
Which also means it's the last week of
Christmas in July 2021!!
I have to tell all of you that I have really appreciated your willingness to play along and answer my mostly silly questions. It really would be fun to be able to send a package to every single person, but until I win the lottery (meaning I would have to actually purchase a ticket), I fear that will not be the case.
Anyhoo, here is the prize for this week's giveaway:
It's a basket of goodies!
Obviously, this small basket - large enough for a sock project or some other small item. You could also store needles, notions, or whatever strikes your fancy in it.
Also included are a set of stitch holders, and a skein of Must Stash Sock Yarn in the Father Christmas colorway, which as you can see has lovely shades in it, and it is not IN YOUR FACE Christmas-y. This is a stripey skein, I think it creates 10 stripes per repeat. (The skein is currently upstairs and I am currently downstairs. I'm afraid that laziness wins out here, people.)
Like what you see? Well then tell me your answer to this question:
What is one of your VERY FAVORITE holiday dishes that you cannot wait to have at a holiday, and for whatever reason you never make any other time of the year, even though you could?
Potato salad only on the 4th of July?? Pumpkin pie only at Thanksgiving?? You get the idea.
If you are interested in being part of the giveaway, post a comment containing your answer on this post only, no later than 12 noon U.S. Eastern Daylight time on Sunday, August 1, 2021 (August 1!!!). I'll choose a winner, once again relying on the random number generator, and announce said winner on Monday.
My answer to this question would have to be stuffing. I absolutely adore stuffing at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I start to think about it at the beginning of November, and my mouth waters at just the suggestion! Could I make it anytime during the year? Of course! Do I make it at any other time? Nope. I don't even consider making it. I like to think that it's because only having it those two times during the wintertime holidays makes it extra special, and maybe even extra yummy. But it could also be that I am just not as motivated to take the time to do it any other time of year ...
Right now though, some stuffing would sure taste good. 😋
P.S. Please once again excuse any weirdness in layout, font, etc. here. After posting last week from my tablet, everything is now changed in settings for the blog, and I probably won't be able to adjust things until this weekend. Just wanted to let you know - I'm sure you're all up in arms about it, right???
