One of my favorite blogs to visit is Prairie’s Edge Farm. Cindy’s handcrafted quilts and embroidery are something to admire. She inspires me to improve my own skills.
In celebration of the opening of her Etsy shop, Cindy held a giveaway on her blog. To be honest, I had not intended to enter the contest – I only commented to praise her flawless work.
But guess what? I won!
The best kind of surprise is the surprise you’re not expecting! Wait – does that make sense? You know what I mean.
Thank you, Cindy, for gifting me with this most amazing piece of quilted artistry. I shall treasure it forever. (As thanks, I’ve sent her a piece of my own work….I hope she likes it!)
Congratulations for winning! I’ve won some prizes in the blogosphere, too, and have been always delighted when they arrived by mail. Come to think of it, I remember being pleased*as*punch when a certain book arrived!
Anything to spread joy, Kathy! 😉
I just received your book yesterday. Thank you so much! It looks very interesting and I plan to start it now because I just finished the book I was reading. (Always have to have a book to read!) Thank you also for the kind words in your note and here on your blog. We bloggers can really help lift each other up, can’t we?
Take care, Cindy
You’re welcome, Cindy! I hope you like it. 🙂
Lovely, lovely work! Not only the quilting; the embroidery is delightful!! I’m so glad it has found a loving home with you. What a treasure; and so sweet of you to send a thank-you gift, too. ~ Linne
I’m quite taken by the embroidery as well, Linne. Cindy is quite talented. ❤
The best kind of surprise is definitely the surprise you’re not expecting, Stacy! And what a beautiful surprise for you to receive as well, I love quilted items and I will be visiting Cindy’s site to have a look around. 🙂
Awesome – you have a lot in common with her! ❤
Ah, enjoy this unexpected surprise and you did reciprocate nicely!
Hugs to you,
I’ll certainly enjoy it! ❤
Lucky both of you! I’m so pleased you got a lovely surprise.
It is a beauty, isn’t it? ❤
