I recently won a giveaway from Shelly (An Arizona Stitcher) and boy was she generous! My package had a patriotic theme and you all know I love me some patriotic stuff. :o) I was thrilled when the first thing I saw was this:
I have never seen these. Isn't the packaging cute?
But that wasn't all....there were multiple packages wrapped individually.
There are lots of trims and ribbon. Red buttons. And I just squealed when I saw the needle minder with my initial and the little red scissors. She also included the floss to stitch the LK design (I didn't have any of those) and the Book of Days.
Thank you so much again Shelly for offering such a wonderful giveaway!
I also received a Halloween package from my dear friend Norma.
This past weekend I noticed my thyme had died in my old coal pot. I decided it was time to rescue this antique from the elements. Here is what she looked like before:
Pitiful, isn't she?
And here she is after a little repair and painting:
Much better. She is now inside and awaiting the idea I have for sprucing her up. More on that in a later post. :o)
So, for those of you who celebrate...are you all ready for tomorrow?
Almira certainly is.
She wants to wish you all a safe and Happy Halloween!
