Winner of Gigi’s Thimbles Prize

IMG_2520 Oh boy the mail person was nice to me today!  I had won a little prize from Amber Johnson of A Little Bit Biased who is starting her new pattern company called Gigi’s Thimbles and today it arrived.  It was more than I thought.  She sent not one but, 4 patterns and a Bliss Layer cake!  I am so excited and can’t wait to break into them all, but first I must eat then take a shower…then the evening is mine to explore my treasures.  I love all this patterns but I think the bird house is probably my favorite at the moment and would look great done in Bliss!IMG_2521

I also ordered the cutest pattern from Cath’s Pennies Design.  It is a Christmas cookie pattern and hers looked so great that I ordered the whole kit.  It’ll be fun to start on something for the holidays.  These are all made from felt.  I haven’t done much with felt before so it will be fun to try something new.  Too bad I have to work the next few days at my paying job or I would just be sewing away the hours.IMG_2522

You must go to Cath’s blog post about this pattern to really get the true effect.  She has a plate of cookies on the mat that look so much like the real thing but are actually ornaments.  I am thinking they will be fun to put on packages.

Sew many new projects to work on…I’m a happy girl!

Nice little bundle you got in the mail. Those patterns are so cute. I wanted to ask you something about your butterfly quilt... could you email me, please?
