Look What Came In The Mail For Me!

Way back in December,
Sew Mama Sew
hosted  "Giveaway Day"
and I had planned on participating.

But life happened and my hands
were still a major mess,
and I never did.

But I DID enter
lots of giveaways for goodies!

And I was so blessed to win some!!
This was an extra major treat for me
because I had put myself on a 
major fabric diet!

I had not purchased fabric since
I bought all the Rapunzel costume fabrics.

So gorgeous new designer fabric 
was not a treat I was allowing myself
(like sugar, which was also verboten!)

Anyway, I WON
this FABULOUS Fat Quarter Stack
of Sunny Happy Skies 
fabric from Riley Blake!!!!!!
They picked me and posted my answer
to their question of what I bake
at Christmas time. 
I wrote that I bake Spanikopita
and you know how that turned out this year!

Thank you Riley Blake for this gorgeous fabric!!

And then I won this!

This little box of awesomeness!!

This is Pearl Cotton embroidery floss
in yummy colors! 

I guess I have to get busy
with more embroidery!!!

I just love these colors!

Thank you Cricket

And last,
but most certainly not least,
I won this Thread Catcher pattern
from Candice at Made with Love.

I need to make this right away!
My family will be so happy to 
NOT see thread everywhere.

I am so excited to use my goodies!!!

Thank you all so much!

Now, I hope I get to finish an 
outfit I have been slowly working on 
for Ahnalin.

I have been pretty busy taking care of 
my patient India.

She is still in a lot of pain but 
she seems to be feeling better
and has been keeping some food down.

Thank you all for your prayers!!
We feel them and are so grateful.

Congrats! I need one of those thread catchers for when I'm weaving in ends of knitting projects. I end up with piles of yarn everywhere!!!!

Karen said...

OOOO I'm drooling!!! Congrats on your presents!!! I'm a huge fan of Riley Blake.

Hope India is feeling much better.

With a streak of luck like that I sure hope you bought a lottery ticket!

I am drooling over that floss and can't wait to see your latest creation for Ahnalin.

You lucky girl! I can't think of a sweeter or more deserving person than you to win some awesome gifts!

Feel free to make me a thread catcher too. I frequently walk around looking like a lint brush.

I pray India is fully recovered soon.

P.S. Did you know your full street address posted in the thread box for everyone to see?

Yes, do blur out your address in that photo, Goose! Not safe!!

I just prayed for your sweet Idia to have a rapid & complete recovery. That poor kid has had so much to deal with in her short life.

Loved seeing your Christmas family photos & I thank you for your sweet words on my sewing projects, too.
