Winter Exchange and Sarah's giveaway

It arrived...my Winter Exchange piece...from Jan and it is lovely pin keep.
It is a CCN design, Snowflake Serenade...isn't it so soft and pretty. Jan has a nice blog...and I am happy to have her as a new friend.

Sarah is having a giveaway....craftymoo-sarah.blogspot.com/ stop by and check it out.

It is a cloudy day with the smell of rain in the air....but the question is...will it finally rain? When rain is forecast here in the Valley, being such a large area, it does not mean well all get it. But it would be nice. I will be working today...so limited stitching...and I was just too tired after a busy day at work to stitch last night. That means I have no update on Bella...that is unless I so some stitching this morning. I was able to pick up my stash for a penny rug or two...


It is beautiful wool felt and the cotton print will be the backing...I can be a very stubborn crafter...I often will teach myself how to do something....I am sure I will figure this one out. As for the pattern, A Gardener's Journal, I think I may have a source...The Home Patch in Australia. I am not sure what  the shipping is...but it may be as much as the book! But I want it and I will order it...because, just because.
Well, I am getting hungry...so I will close for now. Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful day....

Fred is adorable! Love your Winter Exchange piece - so peaceful! The fabric is gorgeous. Guess it helps working where you do -- or is that a hinderance? lol

Have a good day at work!
