A give away -Time for some new friends!

Well, since I haven't much to share with you in the way of quilting, I thought I would brag a bit about a few gifts I received from friends in Blog Land.

These treasures come from Sharon. Aren't they just the cutest?

I tell you that chocolate bar was delicious! Had I known it was that good, I wouldn't have shared it with anyone! ROFLOL

Yea, silly me brought it to my machine embroidery class. Big mistake! I didn't think I'd like a peppermint chocolate bar! Wrong!

Now, if you haven't been keeping up with Sharon's blog Red Geranium Cottage, I invite you to do so. Not only is she funny, kind and generous, but she's a hoot to read. I always enjoy reading a post from her. Let me warm you though, she doesn't give "Spew Warnings", so make sure you're not drinking anything when you read her blog. Don't say I didn't warn you!!!

Now, I received these beautiful treasures from Pam down at Pam's Page. Aren't they just the loveliest?

Notice there are 2 (two) chocolates! Well, I didn't make the same mistake twice. No sirrreee! I tested them before I even gave it a thought to share. Fortunately, that was the right thing to do cause they were yummy. Well, I did let dd have a small bite! But that's all!

Look at that cute mitten! It's Pam's first attempt at working with wool and she gave it to moi! I feel honoured! It's just so sweet of her to think of me this way. Of course we won't talk about my constant nagging at her to try wool! ROFLOL I love the sewing case!

If you haven't paid Pam a visit, I suggest that you do so. She's a hoot. You might want to check out her new shades. She's styling!

I received these two hand embroidery pattern from none other than May Britt.

I just love the trollbarn stitchery! It is so unique! It is from Norway, Langebraaten design.

Now, if you haven't paid a visit to May Britt at Abyquilt, I invite you to do so. She's presently offering "kicks in the butt" for those in need of one in order to complete a WIPS or UFO. I'll be heading on over there after this post for one myself! LOL Yes, Darlene I should be quilting but I just had to do this! ;o)

Okay, now for the give away.

It would appear, according to a couple of my friends, Darlene and Sharon, that the way to friendship is to offer a "give away". Well, it's been a while since I've had one of those so why not today!

Let's celebrate my 154th post! Yea for me! Notice I've been in Blog Land longer than Sharon and haven't reached my 200th yet! ;o)

So leave a comment on this post and I will gather up a gift bag of goodies. Oh, how I love to shop with a purpose. Deadline January 31, 2008 draw to take place in February!

Have fun and thanks for stopping by! In friendship!

Hi there Carole, found your blog via Leanne Beasley's. I loved reading your posts, especially the ones about your amish adventures. I too am completing a masters, and am forever feeling guilty as I try to fit in as much stitching as possible into my uni time. Have added you to my bloglines account so I can automatically see when you post! Have a good day

Gail said...

How do you like the sound of this chocolate bar? It has chili pepper and cherries in it. You definitely have to eat it the "right" way.
