Mail Call

I finally stopped at the mailbox on the way home yesterday, to find a parcel notice there.  This wasn’t unexpected, but still exciting, because I wasn’t completely sure what I was getting.
A few weeks ago, I entered a giveaway draw hosted by Jill.  She started with celebrating her 1000th post, with giveaways for US and International followers, and followed with a series of mini giveaways celebrating all kinds of events and milestones for several days.  I entered a few of them – not sure for which one my name was drawn, but my winnings arrived yesterday:
This bag and book were in the package – as you can see Tobin likes fabric almost as much as I do!

The bag opens up completely – fun fabrics!

And the ends can be closed with drawstring ties.  This will come in handy for sure, if I can get it away from Tobin.

Here’s a close-up of the book – A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick.  This was actually one of my favorite library reads this past year, so happy to own my own copy, so I can share with friends.

Thanks, Jill, for the chance to share in your celebrations!
Blessings, Peg

  2. I'm so glad that you got it!! Did your kitty smell the pups on it? The pups love to get boxes from others because there are usually animal smells on everything! lol
