Giveaway Winner and More Giveaways!

Hello Everyone, most people seemed ready for Spring
And I ended up making 2 cute bee cushions.
I also made this table runner for a swap package and I love it so much, it can be used for half of the year, one side is Spring and in her favorite colors
And the other side is perfect for summer.
So cute right, my kids wanted to run off with the bitten Popsicle ice-cream I had to chase after them several times because they kept taking the applique piece away and pretending to eat it, before I got it sewed down.

I also got in some FMQ this last month, I think my favorite type of FMQ is matchstick, it doesn't have to be perfect and it always looks so cool.

The winner of the first bee pincushion and extra goodies of 2 pins (flower pin and snowman pin), 3 Fat Eighths that go with the Sunflower palette, a bundle of mini charms from Notting Hill Joel Dewberry (that I used for the above Spring table runner) and a spool of Thread made in Greece.

Well Fenna I hope this brings a little warm weather your way :)

  15. Aww! Thanks for mentioning The Giveaway Roundup! I really appreciate it. Your giveaways is fantastic. I love bee stuff because my name means honey bee -- in Greek, by the way! I'm in the middle of a Bee My Honey quilt. I just haven't taken the time to figure out the layout for the blocks. I can't get enough of that fabric line. Thanks again for the plug and also for spreading the good giveaway karma!
