GREETINGS DEAR FRIENDS AND BLOGGING BUDDIES!~ Lately I have had lots of kindness bestowed upon me. Recently I won Peggy's giveaway on her blog. The package arrived in the mail yesterday!
Now I had seen my winnings on her blog, but it is nothing like having it in my own hands! She sent tons of stuff! A BBD 2011 Calander, some stitcher's hand cream in the scent of Blackberry Vanilla ( my favorite scent), a tin of Burt's Bees lip balm, oatmeal soap, a kit from Shakespeare's Peddler, the list goes on and on. Hopefully you can see everything in the picture.
See the pins in the strawberry? She made those herself and I think they are just lovely!
I just love this little Willow Tree Angel! Been wanting one for a long time too! The flower frog for holding scissors is great too! Didn't really understand what all the rage was about those 'til I got one! It is so pretty!
And this big guy... my husband and I had watched a special on the Travel channel some time back about different places in the US that still make candy by hand and the maker of this one, Hammond's , was on that show. They showed how the candy canes were made. Very neat that I have one , but who can tell how long it will last! I love candy canes! Thank you so very very much Peggy! I will treasure it all!
I recently won another giveaway from Melissa's blog. I had been pondering what linen to stitch this on and was making a list of the special overdyed threads I would need for it. Just so happens that I was needing CC's Second Hand Rose and that was one of the flosses that Peggy sent me! When I get some spare time and things calm down from the holiday season, I plan on getting this one stitched up!
Well... that does it for this edition of The Happy Needle. Thank you so much for visiting and for your continued friendships and support.
'til next time,
don't be a stranger,
