When luck is on your side

I could hardly believe my luck recently when I won two blog giveaways. I picked up my mail yesterday and found they both had arrived :)

The first was this lovely vintage fabric from Elizabeth at Bits of Sunshine. Elizabeth has such a lovely blog, she writes beautifully about her family, sewing and cooking. This fabric is just gorgeous, I can't wait to make something with it.


Plus (and I know you'll all be envious of this one), this bundle of goodies from Jade at girl ferment. It includes Lena Corwin's gorgeous book Printing by Hand, Lara Cameron's wonderful gingko fabric that I've had my eye on for a while and a coin purse made from Jade's own teeth brushing fabric! The coin purse has already been put to good use. And look at the cute little printed elephant note card! You probably already know Jade's blog because it's so beautiful and fun but if you haven't go check it out.


Thank you Elizabeth and Jade, you made my week :)

And thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post about quilting, my niece is now likely to make an appearance earlier than expected so I'm feeling a little pressure about getting the quilt finished. Hmmm... maybe I should make some back up booties to give on the day just in case...

thanks for the kind comments about me! and i'll be excited to see what you do with that fabric - after you are done with the quilt you are working on of course. *smile*

You are so welcome! Glad the goodies went to someone who will appreciate and use them.

Just fyi, the elephant card is by essimar, because she is fantastic.
