And whoo hoo ....look what the generosity truck brought me!! When Sharon went to Houston she snagged me a big old haul of quilty wonderfulness!!!!! A wonderful green cupcake Moda bag, the new Minick and Simpson fabric..Flag Day Farm--jellyroll/charm and cake layer combo, a cute little Swing Bag by Pink Sand Beach Designs, a sweet zippered quilt purse, a wonderful stack of Farmhouse Blues by Windham Fabrics - wowie, a ton of Hatched and Patched patterns and great scissors. I am one lucky quilter - thanks Mrs. Red Geranium :-)!!!! I think I have plenty to keep me busy with this big old pile of patterns! Now if all that wasn't enough I was the very lucky winner of a giveaway from Kris at Dandelion Quilts, some wonderful Christmas towels, soap, apron book and fabric..... again I am very lucky!!!
Have you heard the news? Lisa at Spoonful Of Sugar has some of her great recipes featured in a new cookbook, Du Jour, and will also be a regular contributor to a new Australian lifestyle magazine, Silver. The first issue will feature 12 of her fun and easy Christmas crafts. Her blog is just brimming with such creative ideas, and talk about eye candy. Way to go Lisa :-)!!!
And speaking of creative .....have you visited Monica at The Happy Zombie?? Her Pennie Pockets are so darn cute, and she has a free pattern so you too can have some hanging in your own home!!! And again, major eye candy over at Monica's!!!!!!
Our very own Elf Donna, someone we all hold near and dear, lost her whole harvest in a storm. Please know Donna that we are all thinking of you and keeping you and your family in our thoughts. In the midst of all that she is going through she is moving forward and is even celebrating her 400th post - amazing and as always you are an inspiration to us all.
So who are some bloggers that have you inspired? It's amazing all the talent that is out there, and all those that are so willing to share with the rest of us. Gratitude for one and all. Happy first week of December bloggers :-)!!
