I'm a Winner!!!

Guess what! I won a giveaway! I'm so excited...I never win anything! Debbie was holding a 100th post Mad Hatter Tea Party and I won...yahoo! I'm so excited to get my prize. Debbie is so creative and crafty...you should check out all of her great creations on her blog!


Also, my swap partner in Linda's Bag/Bucket Swap has received her package, so now I can show you the bag that I made for her, as well as everything else I sent her. I made this bag for Nancy in Norway...she said that her favorite colors are blue and red...I really hope that she likes the bag. She does lots of quilting and stitchery, so I made it a little bigger to be able to hold everything.

I also sent her some fat quarters, chocolate, a quilting magazine, and a body wash from Bath & Body Works.
This was such a fun swap. It was fun way to get to know people from all over the world. Thanks again, Linda!


I signed up for another swap/challenge...the Spare a Square Scrap Challenge on Jennifer's blog. We each send in a 12" x 12" piece of fabric and she organizes them into groups of ten...then cuts up each piece so that everyone in that group gets a piece of everyone's fabric, then sends the pieces in that group back to us. We then make something out of those pieces of fabric. I'm excited to see the fabric pieces that I get back. I haven't decided what I'm going to make with my pieces, but I'm leaning toward making a basket that I saw a tutorial for on Pink Penguin. The baskets are really cute and I have been seeing them pop up on a lot of blogs that I visit...really makes me want one! Besides, I need a place to store the million or so yo-yo's that I need to finish for my vintage yo-yo quilt.


Thanks to everyone for being so creative and for coming up with such fun giveaways, swaps, challenges, and tutorials...you all inspire me every day! =)

You ARE a winner Anna! You sent some mighty fine things to your partner, you winner you! The embroidery on your bag is so cute, did you do it by hand or machine (it's just too perfect to tell!)

That win looks great! Some neat stuff in there! The bag is just adorable. I love the little flowers on it. I did try to sign up for the Spare a Sqare, but I missed it. Sign-ups were closed, bummer!
