Winners...And Some Other Things...

First...I guess you probably want to know the winners from my giveaway...it sure took a long time to tally everything up; I spent the better part of Saturday afternoon beginning the tally and then didn't have time to finish everything up until this afternoon. There ended up being 688 entries after I tallied all of the extra points for adding the blog button and being a follower. I also visited every blog...and that was a lot of fun! If the winners would please e-mail me your mailing addresses and which prize you'd like (the first place winner can send one choice, the second should send two choices, the third three and so on...hopefully that will save a lot of e-mailing so I can get everything out sooner. Oh, so here they are...... first was Jane followed by Lisa, Kritta 22, Julia, and Carol...congratulations ladies...Random Generator picked your numbers!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks at two things going in the mail this week...across the pond as they say for the Christmas in July swap!

I made a Sweet Treat bag for myself....I'd made several for others, including one for the giveawy and was really wanting one myself! I used some of my favorite Patisserie honey bun strips!

And I'm working hard on my stitchery...I really want to finish my challenge for July for the Charming Girls' Quilt club...I finished the windmill home and started and finished the Birdhouse and the Beehive home!



Hope you have a wonderful day!

Cute little Sweet Treat bag! And I love the stitchery blocks. You're REALLY good at putting fabrics together. The stitching is awfully nice, but the pieced borders surrounding the blocks really make them spectacular.
