"The moments of happiness we enjoy takes us by surprise.
It is not that we seize them, but they seize us."
I had so much fun opening all the fun tissue paper and finding each surprise. You see the give away I won from Cathy at Tolentreasures arrived. The give away was for one of her four square jean mats and maybe something extra. Boy was I spoiled with all the something extra.
Cathy not only enclosed her wonderful jean mat, but all this wonderful goodies. The mat is the perfect colors of our trailer I will use it on the table next to my side of the bed and place my tea cup on it. She knitted a cowl scarf and I love it. I am not a fan of scarves because I seem to get the ends in everything, this is just perfect. She makes these cute little hearts and then she tea stained them, or maybe it is coffee. I am so happy to get one, you know I love hearts. Cathy decorated a nice towel for the kitchen. On her blog she talks about going to second hand stores and buying old wool coats and things that she cuts up and makes into fun stuff. I got this nice pillow with her penny rounds on it. I am imagining what it was before it became my fun little pillow. Cathy tole paints the most wonderful things and now I am lucky enough to have one of her ornaments.
Thank you so much Cathy for just spoiling rotten.
This is what happens when you step away after taking the pictures. Annabelle is my little helper. Do you have a helper too?
Usually she sleeps most of the day. This is what I found the other day when I went to make up the bed.
I joined the traveling pattern ABCD from La-D-Da. Jennifer at Confessions of a serial starter is hosting it. Edgar from Blacksheep's Bit of the Web had it last and sent it to me. I got it on Friday but had a busy weekend and didn't have time to stitch much. Yesterday when I was on letter "H" I saw a problem way back at letter "D". That's right I had to frog back to "D". Now I am back to starting at "H" again so not much progress. When I am done with the pattern I will log in the journal and then send it on to Kathy, Kathy's sit and stitch. It is fun to look through the journal and see how others have chosen colors. Here is mine, the material behind it will give you a clue to my colors.
I have been working on "Bunny Hop". I am almost done and only have the grass left. Unfortunately there is lots of grass so stitching the "ABCD" will be a nice break. I am going to make it into a pillow and the material behind it will be the colors.
Thank you so much to all my old and new followers for the wonderful comments.
Always keep love in your stitches,
