I'm sorry that the photos turned but here I try to show you a little glimpse into details of what you would find inside her book. There is a framed stitchery piece called, "Fresh Cut Tulips" that brings me immediately back to my days of living in The Netherlands. Do you see the applique rabbit above? OMG!! Dawn's quilt design called, "In My Garden" is absolutely darling! Rose of Sharon applique pieces, rabbits, carrots and a scalloped border!!
Two gifts of friendship from my fellow blogging buddies Darlene at Quilting Daze and Shelley of Red Quilts.
Darlene made the sweetest little scissor fob and Shelley sent a tin with wonderful 2.5" strips and her hubby made the thread minder. I keep saying my mailbox is a wonderful place to be and above is a good sampling of why. Thank you so much!
Shelley is having a 100 post giveaway that started today! You do not want to miss it! I want the wool pincushion for myself but she has other fun things too!
The big brown truck showed up today with dies that I won from both Sew Cindy and Tonya's Sewing Room. What you see is Double Wedding Ring, Robbing Peter/Pay Paul, Hexagons and Rose of Sharon. Guess what I just realized?!!!! Call me slow....Rose of Sharon and Dawn's "In My Garden!" (so glad I requested that die!!)
I found many of you read my post about Accuquilt looking for bloggers where I gave you the link to send them your blog for consideration for the GO! I've been hearing back from many of you that you need at least 100 followers and this has sent a frenzy through blogland of everybody wanting followers. I initially helped the first person who told me this and after posting for her I received numerous request of needing followers. Becoming a follower used to be something special I thought. Am I wrong? In the beginning I fell in love with a blog and decided I had to follow them as I didn't want to miss a single post. Then there are the giveaway post requesting you become a follower to be entered (the bribe post). I guess what I am saying is the follower thing doesn't mean squat to me anymore. The only thing that matters to me is when you have the time to leave a comment on my blog post to say you have visited me this is what means most! Followers shouldn't be a popularity contest should it? I do realize that many of my blog friends are requesting followers for the GO! and gosh I can't blame them. SO for that reason only I am requesting that every blog you visit...become a follower!
