Winners &Gifties

I went to my sewing group last week (which I always look forward to immensely because it is such a fun bunch of people) and my friend Kristin had this wonderful gift for me! She had it made for me by a talented woman she knows named Cindy. I was so excited to receive it. I told her it was so much less narcisistic to have if I didn't make it myself. Though I am not above that! I love it!! I should also tell you that Elizabeth of Oh Fransson! had a copy of her book that will be released very soon and it is FANTASTIC! I already had my copy ordered on amazon but now I am ordering more for gifts. It has a ton of great info and several beautiful quilt patterns.
On to the winners! I asked my kids in the car today on the way home from soccer to each pick a number and my son picked #16 which just happened to be sweet sweet Joan! and my daughter picked 32 who is Allison, who does not have a blog but will be getting some fabric to play with! I will email you both to work out the details!
So I have to tell you that when I went outside to take the picture of my lovely pin cushion I was sitting beneath a tree that has good size glass jars hanging from it. I usually have candles in them but we have had a lot of rain and they are full of water. Slimy green water. I sat down to take the picture and told myself to mind the jars on my way up but in the 30 seconds it took to have that thought , take the picture and stand up again, I had forgotten and I stood up, bonked my head on one got a bunch of slimy green water down my back. Ewww! I did manage to keep the pin cushion dry though.

Wonderful pincushion! Cindy is such a sweetie! She donated to PMQG's first blog giveaway :). And I understand about the green slimey water. I have some lovely glass containers for candles in the yard, but it is a constant battle to keep them dry between unexpected rain showers and the sprinkling system.

Thanks you so much for the beautiful fabric and generous giveaway! I can't wait to get my hands on the fabric. I'm hoping for more sewing time soon, but in the meantime, I can always pet it and dream.

That is the greatest pillow...what a fun way to show off what you do (and I agree less narcisistic since you did not make it) BUT SO COOL!
Slimy water bath...oohhhh

That is so wonderful, and oh so very sweet! It's no surprise you'd get a gift like that... but oh so nice!

You've been slimed - and from your very own tree no less. I should probably go and check my yard, too.
