Mail love and embroidered treasures

Look what I received in the mail today! It's a lovely Monique Dalton Boys Toys Kit that I won from Janelle and Kylie of Threads of Friendship! They recently had a Celebration Giveaway and I was so lucky to win these awesome patterns. Visit Janelle and Kylie's super cozy blog and enjoy their lovely handmade quilts and sewing creations. Please drop by and say hi!


The pattern kits and a lovely handwritten card were prettily wrapped in a beautiful mint blue and chocolate heart fabric. Thank you Janelle and Kylie! I will post the projects as soon as I complete them.


I've also been reading a sweet sewing/embroidery book this week. It's called Embroidered Treasures for Children by Claire Garland. There are a lot of inspiring photos and darling projects in it including a vintage embroidered doll, a pocket mermaid and a dreamy fairies pillowcase and unicorn quilt. I hope to post a few projects from this book soon.

Have a great middle of the week everybody!
