Make my day!

After a week of rain which resulted in some flooding in our basement over the weekend (now we know why our landlords provided a wet vac and a huge fan with the house rental...), you can't imagine how it made my day to receive a lovely parcel in my mailbox.
Somehow, I happened to be the lucky winner in Chase's blog anniversary giveaway.  I was practically dancing when I opened the parcel to see she sent me a charm pack of Denyse Schmidt's Picnic and Fairgrounds, a beautiful patchwork and linen bag (made by the talented Chase) and some lovely sewing notions.  Wow. Even though I should finish sorting out the mess from the flooding we had, I couldn't resist starting to make something from those charms.  Thank you so much for a wonderful giveaway, Chase!  You truly made my day.


  1. Sorry about the flooding! Chase is such a sweetheart, she makes the most beautiful stuff and has a grweat taste in fabrics!

  2. What a fantastic parcel to receive! And commiserations over the flooding - that can't be much fun.

  3. Hallo,

  4. Oh Katherine, I hope nothing really special to you got wet in the flooding. What a frustration! I hope the clean up goes quickly and there isn't too much to deal with. Thinking of you.

  5. Oh sorry to hear about the soggy basement. Our house in Millrise use to flood often!!! great win you received. Have fun playing with them.

  6. Oh dear, I'm so sorry about the flooding, but you sure did get a lovely little package in the mail - I'm not familiar with Chase's blog so I'll go have a peek (and I see she has flickr too, so that's always great for eye candy purposes!) :) I happened to find a link today on how to shorten zippers with metal teeth - I've always avoided using them because I was so worried about stitching over them, but now I won't worry as much knowing I can just remove the teeth, lol. If you need the link let me know!

  7. Rats about the flooding.... but what a rainbow treat to help compensate... how's that for perfect timing!

    Have fun with your new stuff!

  8. I am glad the package arrived! Enjoy!


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
