Gifts and ‘Gives’

I have been blessed to receive pretty things from friends and to win giveaways. I appreciate the wonderful friendships I’ve made on my blog and am very thankful.

My girlfriend, Sam sent me something special for my birthday. It’s a quilt top for a doll quilt! Isn’t it pretty? I love the beautiful card, too! Thanks Sam! Visit her at Farm Girl Sam to see what she’s making now! She finishes more projects in a week that I do in a…well, never mind! lol

And another sweet quilting friend is Di at Quilting is Blissful. I won her giveaway and look at all the pretty things she sent me. I have some of them in my Valentine decorations now. (and I was sweet and gave the Hershey bar to my sweetheart) Thanks so much Di! You are so talented my friend!

Another exciting giveaway I won is from our friend Judy at Cranberry morning. She makes the BEST soaps and I’ve used them now for a few years. My favorite is Vanilla Bean and Cocoa! OH MY! It is pure luxury in the bath! If you haven’t tried her soaps click HERE to visit her shop. Buy FIVE and get one FREE! That way you can try several scents. They are all wonderful! Thanks Judy!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Thanks to everyone that visits me and takes time to leave sweet comments, too. They are priceless!
