Lucky me!

I recently won two blog giveaways! That hasn’t happened in literally years. I was amazed it happened at all, let alone twice!!

First, I follow Amy at Nana Company and entered the giveaway she hosted on behalf of Ginger Root Bags – and won this cute little thing that I use now for my kindle:

As a side note, I found a popsocket on clearance so I decided to see what they are all about and I really like its addition to my kindle.

And the little dinosaur I bought a while back for my phone (which I almost never used) has a great purpose as my kindle stand, especially when I am eating! (The kindle is a new addition to my life also;)

I also follow Christen Brown, and managed to win her recent giveaway that includes her Handy Pocket Guide for Embroidery Stitching and her packet of embroidery stencils! This is such a fabulous gift to me since I am learning crazy quilting – it will really help me with marking seams and thinking about new motifs!

The stencils come with an instruction booklet that lists out how to use each numbered cut-out on the stencils. Can’t wait to get started on my next crazy quilt course so I can use these!

Big thanks to Amy at Nana Company, Viviannette and Victoria at Ginger Root Bags, Christen Brown, and Boy (for my kindle;).  You all rock! 😀

Hoop-D-Do Challenge

Hoop-D-Do Challenge

My embroidery guild always has an annual challenge of some type and this year was our “Hoop-D-Do” project, whereby we were to create a work using specific stitches to be displayed in the hoop itself. My display of flowers in a “wood” bowl speaks the 70s to me. And, as usual, I didn’t stick to the rules well and added my own flare – ha!
