I'm the Winner!

This is my first ever blog contest winning!!! Thanks to Kandra over at Sibling Craftery I received this lovely basket full of goodies! (And may I add, the winning annoucement was on my Birthday! How cool is that!)

Fabric, embroidery floss, a hoop, needles, a pin cushion, a tea towel, and of course the basket.
1/2 yard cuts of each of these...aren't they pretty. I love all of them, but my fav is the butterflies with the cream background.

And all my embroidery supplies. Now I have never really embroidered before, so this set is great to get me started. I'm sure this will turn out to be another crafting obsession. Go check out Sibling Craftery's blog for great tutorials and free patterns...I personally like the birds of a feather embroidery patterns...perhaps my first attempt at this fine art?

When I was trying to explain to my husband about my winnings, he was all confused..."so these ladies that you don't know just sent you a package for nothing?" was his response. It got me thinking how the Internet has provided the crafting community with an avenue to connect, and how generous everyone is. There are thousands of crafting blogs out there, hundreds of which I follow, in an effort to connect with those that share your passion about crafts. People host giveaways and take supplies from their favourite stash to hand over to someone for free to share their passion. From here in my sun-room where I type away, I feel connected with those thousands of km's away...and I think that's something special. There. My little sentimental moment.
