TUSAL for September and my wonderful giveaway wins!

September moon...sounds beautiful, doesn't it? Here is the contribution from me. I've come to realize that most of my "orts" are from frogging. I just haven't been having an easy time of it and it shows.  I'm going to have to make public apologies to some of the sal's I joined this year because I've proven myself absolutely untrustworthy when signing up for something. Still three months left in the year...who knows?
Next up are two very special wins for me. I never win...never. But it was well worth the wait :)

From Gillie at Random Thoughts from Abroad. I had been seeing ads for the new Mollie designs books but had never seen a copy over here. She had one to giveaway and BABS WON!  She did! She did!  I've looked at this book so many times.
But Wait! That's not all! Look at this from Nancy over at Victorian Sampler Shoppe. I love all her stuff and wish I could order something every week, but you know how that goes, huh? Just look at the ric-rac, the chenille trim and ribbons and buttons! It's like this package was handpicked for me :) Thank you so much, Nancy...I'll definitely be seeing you soon.

Well, that's my wonderful week. I'm reminded of something I stitched my daughter some years ago "Good things come to those who wait". I waited and good things came.
Thanks so much ladies!
hugs,
Babs
