Beautiful weather & a Giveaway

The dust has finally settled after the move I did last month and I’m getting in to my new routines working from my house, I’m still not sure that my Kitties are too happy with me working from here as I do interrupt their beauty sleep….oh, well!

We had some beautiful weather here in California this weekend, I got inspired and decided to straightening up my sewing / cutting table and do some sewing, I had so much fun and I can’t wait for the upcoming

I have not had a giveaway in ages so I thought it was about time, I will keep it very simple you just have to leave a comment to this post and you will be entered in the drawing, that’s it! Last day to enter the giveaway is April 18th and the winner will be picked and announced April 19th.

1st Prize
12” x 12” Decorative Pillow & Lavender filled Heart. I used a vintage towel, a piece Waverly remnant, a floral material for the back and added some cute pom-poms. The pillow is filled with fiberfill and hand sewn closed. The 5” x 6” Heart is filled with heavenly French Lavender.




2nd Prize
A fun Shoulder Purse. I used a Irish linen souvenir kitchen towel and lined it with a matching material. Great size for running some errands and then you just need a few things with you.
Measures approx. 8” deep, 9” wide and the short shoulder strap drops approx. 18”




and finally the 3rd Prize
Cute Pincushion made from a Vera linen dinner napkin, approx. 8” x 3” filled with fiberfill.

Huu.., glad att jag inte behöver skriva på engelska, inget vidare bra på det vettu!
Heeej, hur är det med dig?
Ja, det var verkligen länge sedan men tro aldrig att jag slutat tänka på dig.., och dina temperaturer.., hihi!
Har ni god värme hos dig, här börjar man ana att våren är på gång och det är ljuvligt.
Klart att jag vill vara med att tävla, gillade din vackra kudde och lavendelhjärtat, har du gjort detta själv?
Ja, som jag så, min engelska är bedrövlig men jag förstod det som att du själv hade sytt dom.., duktig tjej!!!!
Jag länkar givetvis till din tävling och så håller jag tummar och tår på lycka!
Ta väl hand om dig och kul att höra ifrån dig!
Kram Marianne

Idag..., regn och 4+, men imorgon skall solen komma tillbaks.

essemia said...

Så mycket fint det var härinne. En härlig blogg du har och jag återkommer gärna.
Naturligtvis vill man vara med och tävla också, ha, ha.
Hoppas ni får en skön påsk.
Kram Elzie

essemia said...

Hej igen! Ja, så mörkt är det inte här längre efter stormarna. Nästan all skog föll och det ser bra tråkigt ut. Annars bor jag 2 mil nordost om Växjö, så så långt från O-hamn är det ju inte.
Nej, här är ju påsken lite längre men pynta ihjäl mig tänker jag inte.
Ha det så gott.
Kram Elzie
