Mindi offered a little gift to the first few to stitch her little freebie and I was one of the lucky ones. Just look what arrived in my mailbox:
A gorgeous covered journal, and zipper bag filled with cute tissues, lip balm, and mints! Isn't that journal just gorgeous? I was thrilled as I have been keeping a stitching journal this year and have found mine to be a little on the small side. This one will be perfect for 2012. Thank you so much Mindi! Your pattern was a joy to stitch.
Then my dear friend Norma sent me this little kit for my birthday:
It is the cutest little thing! The mat is included and actually "finishes" the stitched design. I will surely enjoy stitching it this winter when I am dreaming of being in my garden. Thank you so much Norma - your little gift made my day.
I am working on putting together some things for a giveaway. It seems I missed my blogaversary last month and I want to do something to recognize the fact I now have over 130 followers. Check back this weekend as I hope to have it all together then.
I hope your week has been stupendous and you have wonderful things planned for the weekend!
