Lucky me ...

... and bad me too.  Over the past couple of months, I have won several giveaways, and received several gifts, and I haven't told you anything about them.  Today I will put that right.

I won this great little wall hanging from Rhonda at QuiltNut Creations.  Rhonda had a giveaway for it, which I did not win.  The winner however did not get in touch with her, so Rhonda re-drew, and this time it was my name that came out of the hat.  I was so happy, cos I had seen it before on her site and absolutely loved it.  I was even thinking of making one myself, and that's saying something, since there's applique involved!  Thank you so much Rhonda.




I have also been lucky enough to win a 6-month membership of The Quilt Show from Sue W Sews.  Sue gave this away to celebrate her birthday, but really, I am enjoying the shows I am seeing so much I feel like it is my birthday instead, thank you Sue.

Speaking of birthdays, it was my birthday recently, as you may remember, and just look what Trudi from Quilting Prolifically gave me.  Loads of gorgeous Christmas fabrics. I have already had some fun in EQ7 playing with ideas for these, and I think I have just the project.  Trudi called in with these, and it was lovely to see her, thank you Trudi.



I received these great kitchen towels from Joanna at Needle, Thread, Happiness recently.  They were a Christmas present but they must have taken the scenic route to get to me, cos they took about 6 weeks.  I think Joanna must have secretly flown over and had a look at my kitchen, otherwise how would she have known that all my "bits 'n bobs" are in red?  Anyway, I've put these away until next Christmas, when they will be brought out, but only for show - they're much too cute to actually use.  You can even see the pretty Christmas card that came with them, thank you Joanna.

Mary from Quilt Hollow sent me this cute little candle mat at Christmas, and I love it.  The colours are just perfect, and it's a wonderful size.  This little cutie has two photos, cos when I took the photo of it in use, I realised that you wouldn't see it properly although I have included that photo too so you can see what a perfect size it is.  Thank you very much Mary, I absolutely love it











There's really no doubt about it, bloggy friends are wonderful, aren't they?
