What a wonderful day!

I happened to be home today, I babysit my GD on Monday and Wednesday, when the doorbell rang and it was the postwoman :D.....I won a giveaway (happy dancing going on) from Babs! Thank you, thank you! I have never won anything before and for this to have arrived today.....I can't tell you how big my smile is!! She sent the most beautiful pillow to me, done on 40 count and trimmed in the most beautiful fall colors and very delicate lace :D. I have actually never seen stitching done on 40 count yet and this is amazing to me! How do you wonderful, talented people even see to stitch this....

I also received Barb Adams and Alma Allen's, A Schoolgirl's Works. I can't wait to curl up in my nest and read this :D.....I love history and samplers!

There are also 3 patterns, 2 complete with thread, material, ribbons, beads...oh my, i can start right away!! Shepherd's Bush Passion Fob kit, the limited Addition Santa from Prairie Schooler and a 2004 Prairie Schooler Santa :D! The darling little scissors in the beautiful fall colors will give me my second pair and begin to 'grow' my collection, lol.  The beautiful skein of Silk 'N Colors is the most luscious  fall color of Autumn Bouquet...can't wait to work with it! There was even a pack of needles to use with it, hehe!

And last but not least the beautiful frog! My first one!! I put my 2 pair of scissors in it already :D!

Thanks again Babs...this is just over the top for me and I am still tapping my toes (sitting tho, tired from the happy dancing) with happiness!
