The giveaway was for a couple of fat quarters to make into the cutest slippers, plus some thread, a pattern and a few zippers):
Yay for you Liz for entering and winning my giveaway!! I hope you can make lots of slippers for yourself and the kids!! I will email you now :) And for the book suggestion -- Roald Dahl has some amazing books. The Twits was one I read in school many many years ago and I still remember it now! Too funny!! Again, congrats to Liz!!
THANK YOU: I have a several people that I want to say THANK YOU to. First is Ruth for the foundation-pieced pattern of a mouse that she gave me a couple of weeks ago from a giveaway on her blog. A mouse - how cute! I can't wait to try it [foundation piecing is new to me so it is a technique I want to learn in 2013]. Fingers crossed I can do it!! Second is to Rumi for the paper-pieced pattern of a Balloon - I won this from her Blog-Hop giveaway and it looks great! I will enjoy making it :) And thirdly, a huge thank you Janet at Caribou Crossing Chronicles for her "Blogathon Canada" giveaway with Sew Sisters who sent me a table runner kit of fabric with maple leaves and mooses (not how you spell moose in plural I know but it is funnier this way!) on it. Picture to follow - it is very 'Canadian' and it will be fun to put together! Thanks everyone - have a great night!
