Oooo Look what came in the mail!!!!

In blogland there seems to always be someone wonderful having a give-away. Some I enter, and some I don't - and mostly I don't win - but that's ok because it is just as much fun to see who wins whether it is me or not. I like to visit the winner's blogs and often find new friends. Well look who won this one - from Happy Cottage Quilter

Me - that's who - and I received the package this week and had such fun opening it up.


Ben helped me by modeling the new bag that Jocelyn made . . .

He's so good at it I just couldn't pick one . . .

And he was proud of himself too . . . and wanted you all to see his bumbly bee shirt . .

He then filled the bag with Fisher Price Little people and "sold" them to Grammy all afternoon . .


This is the bag close up - it is so well made - and wonderfully quilted - and those little buttons on the handles - just the right touch. This is going to be my handwork bag - as soon as I can get it away from Ben for a little while.

And in the box - more goodies . . . a seam ripper (I always need those) a label, a darling notepad and some tags for marking your quilting tools when you go to a retreat or sew-in - so handy. . .

And lots and lots of fabric - these are big pieces - don't you just love the chickens????

Thank you so much Jocelyn (and mama hen) - everything is just lovely - and it came on a day when I really needed some perking up. Seems we are having a lot of those these days.

What a wonderful giveaway you won!!! Ben is so cute with that bag.......I bet he remembers to ask for it the next time he is at your house, too!

So fantastic. I love your bag and the little man assisting with the display. He makes everything (and I mean everything) just shimmer and shine and oh what a little buddy he is. Bumble Bee and all. Big hugs, *karendianne.

That bag is so pretty and lots of goodies too. Pat's right, Ben will probably want to use that bag again, especially if gramma was a good shopper at his last sale LOL.

What a great picker upper you received. And another winner: the third pic down of Ben. Tell him Julie said she loved his bumbly bee shirt.

Ben models the bag quite well I must say. Love the fabric. Do you have an idea of what you're going to do with it yet?
