Christmas Came Early
Last Sat., I learned that I had won a giveaway on Mary's blog.
I have been following Mary's blog for a short time....found her thru another blogging friend.
Mary & I hit it off right away. We have so many things in common, besides the obvious....stitching.
Mary has been a wonderful friend to me.
So..........to see I had won her birthday giveaway, I was thrilled. I honestly felt like it was Christmas when I opened her package yesterday. I do not know how to add pictures with the words underneath, so please bear with me as I describe things.
There was a card & 4 packages. I opened the card & read Mary's sweet words to me. I then started with the package on top. In it, I found a piece of 28 ct antique white lugana...perfect for many projects...also in this package was 2 pieces of material for finishing projects. One is a blue which I think is going to be perfect for a SAL piece I am working on now. The other is Gingerbread boys, which are one of my favorites at Christmas time!
Next, I opened the package that had 4 patterns in it. I love each & everyone of them. The LHN "Snow White" has the fabric to stitch it on & also finishing fabric included in it!!! The LHN "All is Calm" has finishing fabric in it! I really want to stitch the Sunflower Seed pattern right away! Perfect for the upcoming holidays!!
The next package had a pack of photo greeting cards, a magnetic list minder & a skein of Christmas-y floss from Threadworx. I haven't used their floss, so I am anxious to try it!
The last package was an 'added' bonus I believe....Mary knows some of my favorite designers & she included some old freebies & some older charts she thought I would like...and of course, I do!!! One of them has 3 little elfs on it...she said it reminded her of my grandsons...so perfect...I had to agree with her!!
I haven't taken pictures of what I am working on this week..I finished the Nov. part of my SAL piece. I worked on a SAL piece from last Christmas, and now I am working on an ornament for a RR I am involved in. I hope to finish it this weekend, so I can get busy on Christmas gifts!
Thanks for stopping by & reading my blog. I appreciate each & every visitor & I appreciate your kind comments. If I don't see comments, I wonder if anyone is reading, so it is great to see the comments. I hope to have pictures of my stitching updates sometime next week.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
