~ a gift in the mail and 2 bloggy friends giveaways ~

My bloggy friend Kathy from 'From My Heart of Love!' very kindly sent me a sweet gift in the mail.  A chubby pen, a note-pad (to write my grocery list so I don't forget anything), a journal (to keep notes when I'm crocheting), and a set of 6 'Hello' note cards. 

As I was taking them out of the envelope, my husband was looking over my shoulder.  When I was finished, he looks and says "is the envelope empty?  there's no tools?"  and then he made a sad face.  He's so funny.

Thanks so much for thinking of me Kathy.  :)


Two bloggy friends are having great giveaways:

Shari from 'Kashmere Kisses' is giving away the sweetest fabric bunny that she has sewed herself.  She comes with a crocheted bow in her 'hair' and a pair of crocheted ballet slippers.  Shari is also including a couple of her crocheted pin cushions.  Hop on over and enter for your chance to win.


Alessandra from 'homemade@my place' is giving away 2 prizes.  Each prize includes a Japanese pattern book and either a set of glass covers or a set of coasters crocheted by Ale.  Hop on over to her blog too, and enter for your chance to win.

Good luck to everyone!  :)
