Gifts for Me

The pleasant thing about being a blogger is sometimes you get little gems in the mail from fellow bloggers.

A little over a month ago, I got this cute clover pin from Kelley, who is no longer blogging but is still a friend, just in time for St. Patrick's Day.  

Just recently I won two giveaways.  I don't usually win giveaways so I was completely surprised.  Catherine from Urban Rustic sent me this quilted, pot holder.  

I had to really find a good spot on my table so the stains on my tablecloth wouldn't detract from this darling homemade gifts.  Thank you Kelley and Catherine!

I did say I won two giveaways, didn't I?  Well, this second one is unusual.  I won a bra pattern from AJA at Farmhouse Garden who was sponsored by Ohhh LuLu Lingerie.  This is the PDF pattern I won.

Thank you AJA.  When I make this pattern dear readers, you will never know because, I'm not modeling it! Or even taking a photo.  This photo is as good as it gets!

  5. AWWW! It's July and I just now read this! I've made those little potholders recently myself, too-- from denim scraps cut up from a jumper! Your gift is marvelous!

    And I'm glad you liked mine. Sorry it didn't arrive in time for St. Patty's. Them's the breaks when you live across the Pacific Ocean.
