I'm a Winner-Winner-Winner!
I've neglected to post several prizes I've won over the past few months -- I love being a winner!
First from Selena Quilts, I received these adorable rice bags, the kind you can heat or chill to soothe your achy body -- this is what they looked like when they arrived (complete with adorable little candy bars!), before I filled them with rice and microwaved the heck out of them when I was sick at Christmas-time. What a great gift idea, and what a comfort to me!
Selena told me that she makes little bags to put in her mittens, and I loved that idea as mini-gifts for next year. Now I'm experimenting with different fillers, to see what holds the heat the longest.
Next, I won this amazing fabric, with all kinds of sayings, just begging to be fancy-cut, from Quilt Doodle Designs. It's a huge cut, with tons of different little sayings about faith and home and life. What a generous gift, I was so excited to receive it and have a million ideas for how to use it!Pauline the Quilt-n-Queen! A daily 2013 journal -- which I really need because they didn't give us appointment books at work this year -- and a spool of silk thread (which, it turns out, is also good for tying flies. :) ) Beautiful -- thanks, Pauline!
