Winner of 12 of Hearts March Giveaway

Thanks to everybun who has left such nice comments about my logo and my new color direction! We sure are gonna have lots of fun! I hope to have two patterns next month. One stitchery and one quilt. :)

So this month's giveaway was for two inspiring books on French Decor.

Congratulations goes to Stitches of Stitches and Etc. She has the best sugar cookie recipe on her blog right now! Hop over and get it. I'm thinking bunny cookies!!! Send me your address my friend and I'll get your prize on it's way to you! Congratulations!

Next I wanted to share a beautiful gift I received from my dear friend, Carolyn of Little Bear Studio. Carolyn went on vacation to London and bought me a present! Can you believe it? How sweet is that!

She said she just had to get this beautiful tea towel for me. Well I'm glad she did! I love it!! (The chocolate disappeared moments after this photo was taken). Yummy

I decided it would make a perfect cover for my sewing machine to keep the dust bunnies off. This way I can enjoy it every single day. Thanks so much Carolyn! I love it!

Next, I won this sweet little birdie pin cushion with a nest for threads from another dear friend, Di of Quilting is Blissful. It's perfect to take along with me when I'm stitching in public or at a friends house. I mean after all, leaving thread bits all over someone's floor is naughty and rather tacky. hee,hee,hee. This way I can keep all my bits in the nest. Thanks so much Di! I love it!

Finally, you may remember this incredible doll that another dear and talented friend, Jules of Adventures in Thread, made for me when I lost my Razzy bunny last year. Jules even wrote a beautiful story to go with The Rabbit Herder. The other week I was in a thrift shop and way up high on a shelf, I spotted this chair. I did the happy bunny dance and asked a nice, tall,  fella to get it down for me. It was only $6.00! A perfect and proper chair for such a lovely Rabbit Herder. Don't you agree? I love it!

Well, that wraps it up for today. I have lots of work to get done, so I better get hoppin. Have a fun and magical day and prayers for all those hurting in Japan. May light and love help them through this incredible sadness.

Congratulations Stitches!!

Hey, shell, if you try those one for me...please!!
Diabetes runs too rampant around here. Had to get rid of all the good stuff. Of course your babies would think that what I eat now is the good stuff...

Hi Shell & the bunnies, the tea towel is far to pretty to get wet & use on dishes - makes a great machine cover. The chair is amazing, great find! Tracee xx

Lisa said...

Congratulations to Stitches! And congrats to you, Shell. You are one lucky lady to have so many wonderful friends who find you so many amazing gifts. Or maybe luck has nothing to do with it, and it's just because you're so wonderful ;)
