My first win and a giveaway

I can't believe I actually won something!!! How many of you have said these words? 
Jenelle @ ECHINOPS & ASTER was hosting a giveaway for a huge milestone on her blog - 200 GFC!! Now she is already over 300 Congrats again Jenelle :)  It was a fantastic giveaway!! A Fat Quarter bundle from Pink Chalk Fabrics of some of the new Kona Cottons. Look how beautiful they are. 






They do such a lovely job over at Pink Chalk Fabrics. They have such a great selection of modern fabrics and Kathy has a fantastic blog. If you haven't been by there - (which is probably impossible) scoot on over right now! And look how it came, all tied up with a cute little tag :) 






I had to watch my friend Julie who came by the other day. She tried to pocket my goodies haha. She said "do you need to check my bag before I leave?" You better believe it!! I don't blame her, they are so pretty :)

 This month is a hand stitching giveaway. I have a fantastic pattern for a Mini Quilt from Lizzy House. I love the embroidery. This little guy is so cute!


This leather thimble is so soft and feels great when stitching for an extended period of time. 


Last but certainly not least is some fabulous floss. In my opinion  you can never have enough :) 



 Here is this months giveaway bundle of hand stitching goodness!



I will randomly pick a winner on Monday the 27th through Random.org. To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thing to eat is. :) I hope you guys are having a great week!!

  1. My favorite thing to eat is homemade roasted chicken. I make it eery few weeks, and I make Roth from the bones. The I use the broth to roast a new chicken. I actually made one a few days ago, but talking about it is making me want to make another. Thanks for the chance.

  2. I don't have one ultimate favorite thing to eat. I tend to go through spells. Right now I can't get enough of soy chicken patty sandwiches (using an english muffin as the bun). Weird, huh? I think I like them so much because they're FAST to make (and I hate waiting to eat).
