I've had quite a streak of good luck these past couple of weeks. First of all, Susan of Studio Adventures blog notified me that I'd won the drawing for this cute drawstring bag on her blog. Not only that, but Susan has a great tutorial on her blog for making your own (or my own) version. The bag has a handy interior pocket, is just a nice size, and the string is made from tee-shirt material, so it's soft and flexible. I love the fabrics and small pieced blocks Susan used in this bag. I'm going to have to try making at least one of these.
Then, on Insights from Sew Cal Gal blog, I won this book from Cheryl Lynch and That Patchwork Place. I follow Cheryl's blog... she has some great adventures. And now I can try out some of her delightful small projects. She combines sewing with stitch and embellishments in so many fun ways. I've picked out my first project, and it will be coming soon!
Cheryl even put in the makings for one of her
So I've received some really nice gifts of late. I'm enjoying every one of them.
