So Blessed

Sweet Darlene from Quilting Daze had a give-away, and I was one of three lucky winners! It was a surprise, and look what she sent me:




Now, I have a LOT of Aunt Martha transfer patterns - but I did not have this one! Isn't it darling? I think the one of the pup with the corn is my favorite, but it's hard to pick. And these towels are just wonderful. So big and lovely for drying dishes! Seriously, they're 33x38" of cottony goodness. Thank you Darlene, you're a dear! I'm not letting my boys anywhere near these towels. You should see what they did to my .49 Ikea towels. Or, not.

Go check out Darlene's blog - she makes the most darling quilts and has a wonderful blog!

Nothing much is happening in Allieland. I'm getting some hand stitching done, working on my Shabby Roses and just got Jenny's new patterns from her Etsy shop. I made a coaster by hand the other day, and all I could think about was how I could've had 20 of them done by machine by the time I finished one by hand. I MISS my machine. I have to set up a road trip to take her to the Dr., the shop is an hour away but near the beach, yay! I'm hoping we have warmer weather soon - last time it was only in the 50's and I don't want to do that again! I hope someone is having summer somewhere - and if you are, could you send me some? I'm freezing!

Cute prize.
I'd offer you our summer, but I'm sure you'd prefer Jennys! It's wet and miserable here today.

You got lucky! Great prize. . . have fun stitching!

I'll gladly trade you my 90*+ for some cool weather. It's supposed to be scorching here this week, and that makes me melt. Ugh. Please, take it away!

Tanya said...

Oh my! How I would like to send you some of my heat!

Your towels look like they will keep you busy while your sewing machine gets fixed!

Carol R. said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Allie! You are such a sweetie. Way to go on the win! Nice prize. You can have all of the 90 - 100 degree weather you want from me, I don't like the heat. Come on fall.

Jan said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog Allie---I always love your comments! Congratulations on a great prize! Love those puppy transfers--they will be so cute on towels! Enjoy!!!!

Valerie said...

Great gifts! I love the towels! I am actually looking forward to a little cooler weather. I am hoping school starting will slow me down a little bit. Grandkids keep me busy. When we get back from our vacation Sat. they will only have a few days until school starts.
