I'm a Winner!


Hola amigas!

Several weeks ago, I entered a giveaway on a lovely blog, Blueberry Heart Quilts, and I won! (I was the 13th to comment - how cool is that?)

And this is what I won.

It's a beautiful little quilted bag - with a side pocket for my cellphone, a hook to hold my keys, and a zippered pocket on the front flap (just above the flower) and one on the front of the bag. There's a lovely long handle as well, for carrying over my shoulder. Here's another picture, showing the inside and the pocket:

Isn't her work lovely?

She also sent me two beautiful postcards - one of which has a picture of a stained glass window that would make a lovely quilt pattern.

Please check out Ale's blog - she has tutorials for making small quilts, bags, and many other beautiful quilty items. (And in Ale's honour, I purchased my first needlework and crochet magazine in Spanish! Wish me luck. :)

Tomorrow - photos of the postcards, and some pretty fabric.

Adiós para ahora!

Hola amiga!
Im so glad the little bag did all the way to your home safe, its great to know you have it now,

Muchas gracias, you describe the bag so well, I really thank you for it. I have one just like yours for myself, just in browns, I found this bag so nice to use, and with the little bags with the zipper useful to keep everything in its place, hope you also find it useful.

When you say such nice things about my work, YOU MADE MY DAY..... MY WEEK. You made a smile brought in my face when I was reading your post,

Thank you so much.

Its also so nice to know you got a spanish magazine, thats great.

Qué tengan todos una gran semana,
Gracias.
Ale.
