W.O.W.!! A Huge Giveaway Win From Peggy Lee

Hey everybody! Cool opening ceremonies for the Olympics yesterday huh? I just received in the mail yesterday a very big gift from Peggy. She had a giveaway, and boy did she give away!

Let the pink goodness begin! These beautiful, wood, like balsa I believe, roses are now residing in my big, wood bowl with my smalls, and the pink flower June sent me.

She sent a box of Itty Bitty Buddy Biscuits for Mabel. So sweet. I am happy to say she loves them. Maybe a little too much! ;) Two notepads with Bible verses on them. :) Beautiful notecards. These things were stuffed in that little corn meal bag. It is a perfect sized project pouch for me right now.

Strawberry preserves from Kentucky. My kids have asked for it for their toast this morning. :)  Three fat quarters of pink fabric has already been added to my evergrowing pink fabric collection. Beautiful pink scrapbook papers. You should have seen the kids and Brian's faces when I undid the drawstring on that little burlap sack. I could see it was crushed walnut shells right away. They all looked very puzzled. "What is it?!"

Look at this cool, little sewing basket. Do you see the wonderful things Peggy made for me? And even counting pins too. I now own two pair of scissors. Look! They are pink.♥ Madeleine wanted them, but no! Mama wants them. :) Even a poodle!

Pink trim, buttons, measuring tape, and the cool measuring tape trim. This little basket is really neat. I can see a small stitched piece mounted on top. :)

Wonderfulness that makes me think of Peggy.

Wow! This pattern is awesome. The flosses and 36 ct Toasted Coconut linen from Tree of Life Samplings. Very pretty.

More floss, and 4 fantastic charts!! I was so excited over this, I was so moved, I almost cried. I want to thank you once again Peggy Lee AND Master Chief!! How thoughtful, kind and generous you are! My husband, my three children, and I were all stunned. I am NOT exaggerating at all. Wanna know something great? I know you have experienced it yourself. This wonderful thing has allowed Peggy and I to get to know each other better. It is very nice to follow all of you. But is even better to get to KNOW some of you!

I hope you all have a great weekend. I still feel a little like I am floating around on a cloud. Such a warm, fuzzy feeling to know someone took such care JUST FOR YOU. It has been in the 80's here. It did rain a few days last week. The pond has filled again. HOORAY! I will be making a birthday cake for Madeleine today. Party with family tomorrow. Her birthday is the 31st. She will be 14. :)

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments ladies. You are such nice people.

Stitching and praying,
