Recent Mail…

I love getting mail!  But, then doesn’t everyone!  Recently my mailbox has brought a few surprises…and  some winnings…

Let’s start with:

blockfrompat

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!

brettonyarn

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!

mariefbook

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!

bagfromsheree

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?

    I think your saturday is going great! I saw a summertime knits book today at the store (I’m not sure if that’s what it was called), and they have some nice lacy scarves/stoles in there. Not that there aren’t loads elsewhere too… any ideas?

    Is that yarn real soft? I know silk is but not sure about bamboo.
