4 Week Birthday, Treasure Bags, & 2nd Blogoversary!

It is darling Amber's 4 week birthday!  Time really flies!  She will be dating soon, I'll bet.  DD#3 is a great mom-I'm proud of you!

In other news, on Superbowl Sunday  Attic Needlework had a sale.  I placed an order for 2 mystery treasure bags ($20 for $100 value).  I want to share with you the excitement of opening my package today.  Here is what came out of the box--wrapped in gorgeous red toile tissue paper. Hmmmm, wonder what's inside?

OK-here are the treasure bags-there is one below the top one-

Here is bag #1-with two of my favorite designers-Judy O'Dell and Belinda from Blue Ribbon Designs, then a selection of designers that I wasn't familiar with (except Cricket Collection), two beautiful samplers from Milady's Needle.   What a haul! 

Check out bag #2- another Judy O'Dell and Ellen Chester's Within My Heart Sewing Case, Rosewood Manor, The Workbasket & more, including a Wild Strawberry Fall Berry kit!  OK-I love mystery treasure bags!  Thanks, Attic Needlework!

 More news-it is my second blogoversary!   So it is time for a giveaway-see below-

Here is my giveaway-3 fat quarters of patriotic fabric, tokens & trifles, threads, 2 pieces of linen, a Mills Hills kit, 2 spools of ribbons, new cross-stitch towel, Christmas pillow,and pattern for Flutterby Garden for ipod or cell phone cover.
