generosity and creativeness

I have been blessed over the last month- winning 2, yes 2, giveaways from 2 great ladies!

The first was from my friend Erin. She had a giveaway for 3 fat quarters. When she sent them to me she also generously included her left over scraps from the same collection!! They're from the Sweet line from Moda and will be used for a quilt for Timber.

Next was a giveaway that Carly hosted. I won 2 of her patterns! I have had my eye on one of them for a long time and I can not wait to use them!! I already have the fabric in mind too (as if that should surprise you.) For her MB pattern I will be using the Happy Campers fabric from American Jane. For her DP Pattern I'll be using Happy Trails from Benartex. These patterns make me want to stay up all night and forgo the little sleep I get to use them!!

And last, but certainly not least, is some cute creativeness from my cousin Lynette. She made these for Timber and I for Christmas. They are soooooooooo cute! I told her she needs to open an Etsy shop and sell them. Come on girl, get on it!! :)

Those scarfs are ADORABLE, I want some of my own. Is she really going to sell them??

It's difficult to be an "in the moment" person and think ahead at the same time! But you are so right. Congrats on your wins, and on receiving such a lovely gift as those handcrafted scarves. They are beautiful. ~karen

Tell your cousin I think those are the cutest scarfs I have ever seen. How perfect for a quilter. Also I came over to see your blog after seeing your post on Mary Janes farmgirl site. I just joined today.
