It's been a busy week of sewing up swap blocks, and in the midst of doing all of that, I've been using the pin cushions that I won in the last few months. Which reminded me that I don't think I ever shared them on here. I've had some good luck in the winning department!
First, a few months ago, I won this most ADORABLE sewing kit from Juliet over at Tartankiwi. Thanks again, Juliet, I just love love love it! Look how cute it is. (I borrowed this pic from her blog b/c it shows it so much better!) The pieced apples, and the house on the pin cushion are perfect!
And this pic, too.. look at that cute lining, and scissor pocket. And those elephants. I love it!
Here it is after winging it's way from New Zealand to California.
[told you her pics were better than mine.. ;)]
Then, last month, I won this giveaway from Charlotte's Web.
See that envelope that says New Zealand Post? NZ has been so kind to me recently! ;) A fab pin cushion (such cute details!), and a message hoop.. look at that bunting on there and the string with the pins. Not to mention the charm pack and book. Thank you thank you Wendy (and Charlie)!
The hoop is hanging over my sewing area and makes me happy whenever I look at it. :)
New Zealand bloggers are sooo kind. Actually all quilty bloggers that I've met are so generous and kind. You're all amazing.
And, just this week, I found out that I won something else, this giveaway (of Oakshott cotton) over at Todd's place, This Guy Quilts. Thanks, Todd! :) If I never win another thing, I will never complain. I have had some good luck lately. Thanks to all of you! I plan to spread the love with a giveaway of my own soon.
In sewing news, still working on my swap blocks for the Taking Names Group Project for EvaPaige Quilt Designs. I have two of my eight envelopes done. Here's a peek.
Twelve of these done..
And twelve of these done.
And now I think I need to make a quick trip to get some FQs as I don't have many fabrics in the other requested colors. Two or three are asking for black and whites also, and I'm getting low on those, and one asked for shades of gray, and one shades of brown, of which I have hardly any. Oh BUMMER.. Have to buy some FQs. I hate buying fabric. (said with my fingers crossed behind my back and dripping with sarcasm~ha!) :)
Six more envelopes to work on~
Have a great weekend!!
