Giveaway Goodies

Last month, Lisa of Pursuing Art ... Life and Dreams! had a giveaway to celebrate a belated blogiversary. (Lisa had a most unique way of choosing and sharing the giveaway winners -- a video post of the entire process!) I was one of the winners! Now that I've completed my BFAC project, and have a little time on my hands, I thought I'd share what she sent.

Lisa asked each winner choose from these six options: two different packs of Princess Mirah's Batik Fabric Fat Quarters from Bali; three different doll forms made by Monica (Girl Gone Thread Wild) each with a face cabochon from either Dottie or Jen; or a 41mm Czech glass light blue/aqua dragonfly button.

I chose one of the Bali batik fabric packs:

But, wait, that's not all that Lisa sent! She sent three more fabric pieces ...

... and she sent two beautiful photos (a poppy and a sunrise), a package of ball cover button blanks (because I once mentioned that I would like to try some bead embroidery on a button form!), and several packs of lovely transparent green nailhead beads! ...

... all wrapped up a wonderful assortment of colorful tissue papers, ribbon and yarn, with lovely little tags with heartfelt greetings ...

and another shot of those beautiful nailheads!

Lisa, even though I've already told you how much I appreciate your generous giveaway, thank you, thank you again. It was such a delight to receive your package -- almost like Christmas and birthday all rolled into one. I can't wait to use these goodies!


  1. Oh how yummie! I am somewhat of a fabric slut myself LOL
    What do you have planned for them? Or are you like me & wait for the idea to hit later ~ grin

  2. LOL, Ellen! I have collected fabrics in the past when I thought I 'might' make quilts. Finally donated that stash to a friend before a major move. Now here I am with more! (sssshhhh, don't tell anyone ;-D ) I'm sure I'll use some of them for the AAB BATCies.

  3. Smiling and feeling like a deer caught in the headlights! :)

    You are too sweet! I'm so glad you enjoyed your package. Can't wait to see what you stitch up...I know they will be beautiful.

    Thought I'd swing by to see if you had posted your BFAC piece. I'm working on an email to you *FINALLY*!

    If you are making the drive to Newport, this weekend, would you do me a big favor? If you get to see and meet Bobbi, give her a *big* hug just from me! You will just adore her...she is the salt of the earth!!! And, have a great time...*SO* wishing I could go!!!

    Sending you a heartfelt hug from me...~Lisa
