My Valentine Swap OH MY

Oh my goodness, as Shirley Temple used to say !! Yes, I am of that age group :)
I recv'd my Valentine Swap yesterday, from Trudy Lawson-Kelly, and well was
just so bowled over by all she sent me!  Felt like it was Christmas.  She did way
too much, but I do appreciate her love in preparing all.
Will include photos for you. 
The doll is big and so neat. Fits right into my family room decor, Folk Art. She
does wonderful work.
She also sent me a book "BackYard Projects", a Kitchen Angel made with a Kitchen
Towel, PotHolder and Dishrag, so cute, also another Hand Towel with a red heart.
She also included several seed packets ( I belong to our local garden club) a
porcelain "Kitchen" sign in blue & white.  A whole bunch of the most delicious
Truffle candies, a package of Biscotti, (ate that after lunch yesterday), a framed Cupid Needlework picture, an apron, and lastly , 3 Wax Heart Primitives wrapped in great smelling tea-stained gauze.
Told you she sent a lot.

Thank you so very much Trudy for your generosity.  It has been great getting to know you.
Love and hugs

I have decided it was time for me to conduct another Give-Away.  Please note that
this is for USA or Canadian citizens only.

My choice of item is a Spring Easter Candle Mat.  What with all the horrible winter
weather we have all been experiencing, decided a light colorful item would be best.
What could be better than Spring & Easter.  Easter, to me, is a rebirth time, not only
for nature, but it reminds us of what Jesus did for us on the cross. His death is a
rebirth for us that choose to follow Him.

Anyway, the candle mat is approx. 9 1/2" diam.  The eggs are made from wool felt and then embroidered with DMC Floss.  The eggs were stitched onto Warm & Natural Batting. Couldn't resist adding the yellow Rick Rack around outer edge. Then the edging was stitched with a blanket stitch in yellow floss.

The egg is approx. 4 1/2" high.  Made from wool felt and stuffed.  Both items are hand stitched.

This Give-Away will end February 28, 2011 and the winner will be announced
March 1, 2011.

Please leave a comment and become a follower of my blog. Be sure I have info on how to contact you should you win.
