Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. Stonehenge evolved in several construction phases spanning at least 1,500 years. There is evidence of large-scale construction on and around the monument that perhaps extends the landscape's time frame to 6,500 years.
Associated with the Druids and mystical ceremonies, a perfect setting for Halloween.
I would like to welcome all the new followers as well as thank everyone who commented in participation of the Stonehenge Blog-aversary giveaway. I apologize to those who live where there is no celebration of this Holiday and to those who don't recognize it.
Helping my SIL in making a shirt for her brother for Christmas. Oh, it has been a struggle - surprising, as both of us sewed a lot of clothing 'many' years ago. Thankfully a lot of 'you-tube' tutorials assisted us, as the pattern instructions STINK! We have gotten to the hemming and the buttonhole finishing.
The winner of the Stonehenge Jewel Stone roll pack is Jennifer of Hoodies and Flipflops. I will send her an e-mail for mailing information.
