A Giveaway, Initial Valentine Swap, OFW, and FNwF

WOW!  Look what Martha my partner for the Initial Valentine Swap sent me.



 What fun!  I'll love carrying this gorgeous tote to sewing classes and everywhere else.  Thank you so much for the wonderful bag and of course for the delicious chocolates.  You can visit Martha's blog  sew what's new here to see what else she's been doing.  Come to find out she used to live near me and we might meet when she visits, sounds like fun!

Thank you Cheryll for hosting this wonderful swap.  Visit Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' and join others in a sew along this Friday night.




 It's been cold and snowy here and my garden is still growing slowly.  Just prepared another flower to add to my garden. Visit One Flower Wednesday to see what's blooming!





 And now onto WOOL......

I completed my Winter wool banner (you've seen Spring and Fall in 2013.)




I love the patterns and kits this designer makes so I thought I'd have a GIVEAWAY! The designer is my friend Kathy Wall and her website, Woolkeeper, opened in December. She has so many gorgeous kits and patterns for sale (so of course I've been there a few times!)

Thanks to my DD for editing my post and fixing the wool photos.  I'm very tired tonight and made many mistakes.

Choosing a favorite from Kathy's kits is HARD! I love the Hearts for You, but Sweethearts is so adorable, too. I think I'd have to toss a coin between the two.
