My friend, Catherine, just got back from two weeks in Europe and she was so thoughtful to bring me this Marie Claire Id√©es magazine. She had no idea that I was a fan of the magazine. I guess, she's just such a good friend that we're on the same wavelength!
I would love to make this blanket with embroidered/crocheted flowers. I'll add it to my list and hopefully figure out the diagram instructions soon.
I sent Cami a box of my much neglected scrapbook supplies and she sent me this great package of adorable handmade cards and a set of fat quarters.
I've been staring at this fabric for weeks trying to come up with the perfect project to showcase them. I think I might try a zig zag quilt alternating these fabrics along with a solid complementary color. Thanks, Cami, for this great package!
And, surprise of all surprises, I actually won a drawing giveaway. The one and only time I've ever won something was at a cakewalk back when I was in fourth grade. So, needless to say, I've had an 18 year dry spell! John, of Quilt Dad, did a giveaway in honor of his 50th post and I was one of the winners. I just received the package yesterday and he sent a cute bag that he made that was filled with lots of candy, North Carolina treats, a card and two mix CD's. It was such a fun package to open up at the end of a long work week. Shinji was just as excited to open it as I was (he's a big fan of all things plastic). Thanks John!
