I am NOT bragging, I promise. I just want to share...
First, I won this embroidery pattern from Meg at Crabapple Hill. My wife LOVES snowmen (you will see at least two snowmen projects in the near future) so this will be well loved when I get around to trying my hand at yet another new art form.
Second, I entered a give away at Possum Blossum and I won TWO HUNDRED perfectly cut hexagons. I have always resisted starting a Hexie project primarily because there is no way I was going to cut my own templates accurately. Now I just need to work up the nerve to try a hand sewing project…
Third, From Jennifer at Incomparable Buttons... I won some buttons and a small patch of matching fabric... I learned of the giveaway through their blog, but their website has many many buttons to choose from. They are very good quality from what I can tell...
These adorable little buttons will be shortly added to some Journal covers for boys… I was talked into joining an arts & crafts gift show being put on by my office. After people saw my bosses quilt (Stars and Stripes) I had several requests that I join in the annual event. I have never thought about selling my work, but I guess I am going to start!
And the winning wasn’t over!! Many of you I am sure are aware of Madam Samm’s Awesome three month give away over at Sew We Quilt! Well, I won some fabric. 10 YARDS of fabric to be exact! Look at this beautiful collection of fabrics…
And Madam Samm tossed in a few extras… Some cards, Hand Needles and some finger thimbles! Just the things I need for working on those Hexies I spoke of above!!
And the winning didn’t stop there! Last week I won tickets to go see “Straight No Chaser” in concert! I called a friend, made arrangements for the kids, and told Trish she didn’t have a choice, I was taking her out on a date. She had a blast, as did I. This was one of the most entertaining concerts I have been to in a LONG time. If you have not heard of them, Google “Straight No Chaser, Twelve Days of Christmas” and watch the You Tube Video… Or just click below. You will NOT be disappointed.
I also received the following wonderful package of Japanese Fabric Charms courtesy of Anne Marie’s Japanese Fabric Swap over at Gen X Quilters. I have participated in several of her swaps. She is well organized and I highly recommend doing one of her swaps.
And Last but not least, I received this package of Selvedges from
Joan Janet O. in Utah. At first I wasn’t
sure who sent them, and I was planning on adding a “Who Sent me these? Note,
but I received and email indicating where they had come from. Thanks Janet O.!
I have a bunch of stuff to share over the next few weeks… Stay Tuned!
Until Next Time,
