I love getting mail! But, then doesn’t everyone! Recently my mailbox has brought a few surprises…and some winnings…
Let’s start with:
My friend, Pat, decided she was going to give away some blocks. The only stipulation is that when we make something out of it we need to post something about it… I love the block – the colors are bright and cheerful! Am thinking I may make a wall hanging for a friend of mine who is expecting in September!
Over at Romancing the Yarn, my friend, Barbara Bretton, decided to give away some yarn…and I won! It is:
Soie Bambou; 65% Silk/35% Bamboo; 680 yards; 223 stitches = 4″; color: 6239 Celadon Green. I’m thinking pretty, lacey scarf. Yea!
Oh, and if you haven’t read Casting Spells by her, you might want to give it a go. Pretty good book!
For years I have been entering the writers contests over at Writers Space and I actually won. I didn’t realize I had until the book arrived at my door. A Doctor’s Secret by Marie Ferrarella is a Mills and Boon Intrique (Harlequin’s branch across the big pond) and I do like books with a bit of mystery and romance. It’s next on the to-be-read stack!
And, last but not least – the beautiful shopping bag from Sheree. It is a nice size bag to use for shopping. The bag is made out of linen and then has this great flower appliqued on with the center being a neat button…Really like this bag. She makes great bags among other things and is a really nice person. Her blog is a lot of fun!
So that is how my Saturday is going! How about you?
