As promised, here are the Give-Away details, so that you can all celebrate with me the birth of my first grandchild, Alexandra! I'll bet Allie Bug is excited too!

Heartstring Primitives 'With My Needle'; also converted Belle Soie Silks to stitch it with, and an 1/8 yard cut of PTP Relic 32 ct fabric to stitch it on!! Also had to include a package of needles, since the design is about using our needles!LOL Also one of Kelmscott Designs Mother of Pearl Threadkeeps in the heart shape, from my heart to yours!!

All readers are welcome to join in the celebration giveaway, even if you don't have a blog, please do make sure that you leave email contact information in your comment though, so that I can contact you, if you win!

Feel free to post on your blog, the link for this giveaway, the more the merrier!! You can even rob the pic and post that on your blog, in fact I encourage it! You will receive an extra entry by doing so! Good luck! I will close the entries late Wednesday evening, and will post a winner on Thursday, July 30, 2009!

Sunday Blessings!

I want to thank Christina for her wonderful award to me a few weeks ago. With the grandbaby's arrival and things being so hectic, I almost forgot! Anyway, I just want to extend this honor to all that follow my blog. I have so many favorites, there are way too many to list, and I would love for you all to have it! You are all so special and great, following, commenting and even just reading my blog. I appreciate each and everyone of you!

Because of this and the exciting summer I have had, with the birth of my first grandbaby, I am going to be offering a giveaway within the next week. I think that you will like the chance to win what I am offering, so be sure and check back often! There are some great giveaways going on now, I know that Paulette has one that you don't want to miss, so head on over to her blog and be sure and post and let her know you are reading!

I am going share a snippet of what I have been working on. This is a design I have created and hope to publish soon. It isn't quite finished yet, but getting there. I won't be sharing the complete piece until it is finished, framed and formatted for publishing, so just please patient. I hope that you like what you see so far!

You all show such lovely flowers from your garden, I am not so gifted with a green thumb as many of you, but I do have this potted hanging basket on my front porch that I love:

I just moved into my present home last September, so this was a surprise when it came up and produced blooms this year. Can anyone identify it for me?

And last but certainly not least of my blessings, is a pic of my Allie Bug, Nana's lil angel, before I came back home, last weekend! Miss this sweet one!

Thanks again, for all of your sweet comments and also for visiting my blog! Don't forget to check back this week, for details of the giveaway, to celebrate the birth of my precious granddaughter!

I pray your blessings are in abundance!

Love, Jan
