Generosity of Bloggers & New Magazine

Happy Saturday my blogging friends.

 I want to tell you about a wonderfully talented & generous lady in blogland. Many of you probably know who Madalynne is, but this is for those of you that are not familiar with her. Her blog is named Pineapple Primitives & I guarantee you will love it. She recently had an Early Bird gets the Worm giveaway & I was one of the lucky girls who won a piece of her work.

Meet Miss Sparrow~one of 10 she gave away.  Sorry about the poor picture quality. It dark & dreary here today & no matter how hard I tried, I was unable to get a decent picture.

Miss Sparrow is just beautiful. Madalynne's attention to detail is amazing. She made her home on my little shelf with my pinkeeps & little spools where I can enjoy her every day.
Thank you Madalynne~I will cherish Miss Sparrow always.

And look what showed up in my mailbox today~my issue of PRIMITIVE QUILTS & PROJECTS magazine. I haven't paged through it yet, but the designers that are featured are many of my favorites. To get your own subscription, visit primitive quilts & projects here.

Well~I'm off to page through my new magazine & pick up the house. I heard the H (hoarder) word again this morning & I'm on a mission to hide all my stuff.

I'll also be completing my giveaway project today. Be on the lookout tomorrow for the picture & the details.

Have a great Saturday friends!!

Hi, Becky ~ I love your sparrow, looks perfect. I'm debating whether to order a subscription to the new magazine. I do alot of cross stitch, a little needlepunch but no quilting. Is there much cross stitch in it? thanks ~

No FAIR! My magazine didn't come in the mail today - I'll cross my fingers and hope it arrives on Monday. Your little birdie looks right at home in her new surroundings - isn't it fun to win a giveaway?

Becky ~
Miss Sparrow is absolutely adorable. You've displayed her perfectly!
As for the magazine ~ ~ ~ I'm not a quilter so I am disappointed how little else there is. Yes, I realize that some of the quilt/appliques can be hooked or punched, but I was hoping for more ~ and there was no cross stitch. Just MHO.
Hugs :)
