Last Of The Prizes

This is the last prize photo I have to post. It is being donated by Needle Nook. This Namaste tote has a retail value of $69.00 and will go to a lucky winner.
The shop hop seems to be very active this year. Passports are being turned in and we expect a large turnout this weekend. Here is Arlene shop hopping with Debi of The Whole Nine Yarns, Elyse of Only Ewe and Cotton Too and Theresa of Cast On Cottage and Needlepoint Garden. All three shops were new to me and a treat to visit. Two were in new locations, both great spaces. Hope you are enjoying the shop hop.
