And the winner is..

I need to let you know about my delightful surprise when I came home from work tonight. You know, a busy day in the CCU, a cardiac tampanade patient, very ill, went for emergency surgery, etc. I came home, and my DH said, "you have a package!" How fun! I opened it, and in each layer of pretty wrap, there were chocolate candy kisses! Yum!!! This just added to the fun! I won a give-away! See above, the lovely fabric bouquet? Made of all gorgeous fabrics, and a lovely fabric greenery bottom. This is the lovely creation of Sandi A. at http://www.alegacyofstitches.blogspot.com/. How kind of her, and how lucky of me to win. It is much too pretty to take apart and use for fabric...I must admire this one for a long while!

Want one? Well, I will share! Yummy good for Valentines day!!


Guess what else was in the package? Hearty fabrics! Not only lovely in themselves, but each piece carefully pressed and folded beautifully. Not a crease in them! Lots of loving effort went into this package, and I want Sandi to know...I appreciate the lovely gift and her so very much!



Now for a yucky picture of a cute project. These are tiny little flower pots, about 59 cents at the hardware store. Inside is a bit of filler, and a pretty piece of fabric covering it. Making a little pin cushion! For my quilting buddies at work. Simple but cute, I think. I have no idea where I saw this idea...



Have a wonderful day all! Thank you for allowing me to share my fun news of the day!!

Wow! I love that fabric bouquet, Julie. I am so happy for you to come to this after such a day. And the fabric that was folded with such care - that's really thoughtful. And I have to admit I too love those little pincushions. How neat! I think maybe even I could do that. Maybe... Oh my friend, I do hope you're off this weekend and that you can sew some and do whatever you please!
