I Won!

My secret little addiction is reading blogs! I hop from one to another each and every morning as I am drinking my coffee... and, sometimes again in the evening to relax and daydream. I have, and I am sure you have too, entered quite a few contests and giveaways often offered on some blogs. Well, I just happened upon Kansas Troubles Quilters blog last weekend... and entered a giveaway Lynne was having... and much to my surprise and delight, Lynne drew my name as the winner Monday morning! :-)

The prize was a good sized tin from Moda that was designed to look like a well traveled suitcase! All of the "travel labels" displaying quilt designers, and fabric designers... caught my eye right away! It really is such great piece! It will be displayed among my other addiction which is collecting sewing themed tins! ;-) Lynne also added some goodies to the inside of the tin like a ceramic pie bird, a wire egg basket, some note cards, a sewing themed note pad and some Ragspun Quilting embellishments! Thank you so much Lynne!

I have been working on some projects that I hope to share pictures of soon. The one I just finished today is for a Winter Cheer Swap that is going on within our online group "An American Primitive Gathering" (USAPRIM on eBay). Once the recipient receives her gift, I can share a picture of that... until then, I will try and share some pictures of the other small stitcheries I have been working on...

Have a warm and wonderful weekend!
