I had never won anything in a blog giveaway in all the years that I have been reading blogs. Then WHAMO ! I won something terrific from Cathy at orangesink.blogspot.com ......one of her terrific rug patterns titled Autumn Trio.....and it has birdies !......my favorites.....and I am beyond tickled ! She even included a photo of her finished rug...such a SWEEITE PIE !
I was first amazed by her blog (and her photos) a few months back when I stumbled upon it quite by accident and even forwarded a note to my sister, georgiapeachez, about it. On the right hand side bar of orangesink.blogspot.com, about midway down, is a terrific wool cabinet painted the most wonderful tone of chartreuse, standing wide open, with wool overflowing....a rug hooker's dream !
In addition, Cathy had a recent post about a trip to Bayfield , Wisconsin that included some of the most beautiful pieces of yard art and statues throughout the town...just gorgeous !
Here in Phoenix, it is still over a hundred degrees and we have been wondering if summer will ever be over....this week at the Quilted Apple we are having Anita White for a special 3-day rug hooking class and I can't wait......plus I will have my terrific new pattern from Cathy for show and tell to all the rug hookers there ! It will be a fun week ! Thanks again to Cathy for being such a SWEETIE PIE!
