Some days do you ever feel like you've won the lottery?
That's how I felt last week
when I received the most awesome package in the mail.
I had to chuckle.
When my husband saw I received
this huge package
he just rolled his eyeballs.
"More fabric?", he says.
(that's the standard question whenever I receive a package)
"Oh no, Dear!
This is from my new friend,
Stephanie!!", I say.
you can tell me the truth.", he says
"But I PROMISE
I am this time!", I say
anyone who is addicted to fabric totally knows exactly where I'm coming from in this conversation
I met Stephanie during a contest
hosted by Amy of During Quiet Time
(the Texting While Sewing contest).
You can read her inspiring blog here
Stephanie did a BEAUTIFUL block
as a tribute to Iowa
(my kind of gal!)
And the rest is history.
But meeting Stephanie has been such a blessing!
She's pretty awesome.
I'll quit babbling.
I'm sure you want to get down to the nitty gritty
of what was in the package.
I received these fun labels
which will be PERFECT for
saving those special little tidbits
of info you don't want to loose when browsing a magazine or catalog.
and this awesome journal and washi tape along with the labels
(the notebook was custom made for her students, and she had extra, so I got one too!!)
and this inspiring card!
And for the grand prize.....
This GORGEOUS pillow!!
I can't even BEGIN to tell you
how in love with this I am!!!!
(Thank you AGAIN, Stephanie!!!)
I absolutely LOVE the paper pieced pattern
she did for this.
And the colors...
this Christmas pillow rocks my world!!!
Check out the lace
all the way from Holland!!
(seriously....can you believe this???)
(Stephanie - I thought you would appreciate your pillow next to the Hawkeye ornament
even though they haven't had the best football year)
And of course,
I had to take one with my Victorian doll beside it.
It even has a zipper!!!
(and groovy fabric on the back)
And one more close up,
just because I seriously cannot stop looking at this!
I love the way the pieced circles work together
and just keep your eyes flowing to each specially cut piece of fabric
Thank you again, Stephanie!
I could not be more thrilled!
Everything about this whole experience
has been a blessing!
If you would like to see what I did for Stephanie,
you can check out her post HERE.
I think I will start to follow
the direction of the card she gave me.
I think it's great advice.
