Did you think I forgot to draw a name for PIF?

I didn't forget. I just got this idea since there were only six names. I don't know anything about random counters, etc., but I do know about the honor system :) I had a little fun with it since this is Easter month so just bear with me. Only one person won the draw, but I would love to have the addresses of the other five if you don't mind. If you do mind, that's ok, but why not send me your address just in case?I wanted to hide the names in eggs...all colors, then I realized I better have the eggs all the same color so no cheating going on :) Here are the eggs in the basket:





Look real close and you'll see all six eggs in the grass:


And the winner is Maria!!!!!




And then, the other five names folded in their eggs...not going to call you losers :)


Maria, I will get to know you a little better and see what your tastes are, but now you have to pay it forward on your blog.


I had the nicest surprise recently. I picked up this magazine that I'd never bought before called Create & Decorate...




and I found this..... a design by Terry Loewen.




and had to do this. I cut a piece of autumn blush 32ct fabric and picked one of the newest Gast threads called faded rose and got this far


but really want to finish this before anything else. I love the faded, look of the thread and blotchy look of the fabric. Together with the chenille trim planned for it, I'm hoping to have my very own brand new "antique".


and by the way, picked up the latest copy of Create & Decorate a little while ago. I do love this magazine!

bye for now!

hugs,

Babs
