Prizes in my Mailbox
First photo shows the wonderful gift I received from Meagan. I had won a contest on her blog Snippets & Yarns from Turtle Bottom. She had made her son some neat fabric luggage tags and she was offering to make one for one of her readers. I was quite surprised to learn I had won. The luggage tag was specifically made to match the tote bags I made to carry my fencing equipment. Knowing that I am always reading and reviewing recipes, Meagan included a book, Glazed Murder: A Donut Shop Mystery by Jessica Beck. This is going to be a wonderful holiday read. There is also a luscious piece of orange quilt cotton. I will definitely be including that in my orange version of the Dear Jane Quilt.
Pocket Posh Books, a brand of Andrews McMeel Publishing. These are an assortment of pocket size ( 4 x 6 inch) books with gorgeous covers. My prize included three sudoku books, a crossword puzzle book and a jumble crossword book. Did I tell you that they are gorgeous? These are definitely gift quality books. I have seen them locally in shops and will be purchasing more of them. I would feel bad keeping all these to myself, and will be adding them to a few Christmas stockings. Oh it will be sad to let go of them, but I know the future recipients will enjoy them.
