My Swaps & Win!

I was in 2 swaps and I won Jan's giveaway from My Primitive Nest. Well yesterday I got the mail in and all three arrived at once! Well I was in hog heaven.LOL
Jan gave away three of her punch needle projects and since I was the first winner, I got two!! Pictures do not do these punch needles justice. I have swapped with Jan before and her work is fabulous!! If you haven't seen her blog head over and check out her work at http://myprimitivenest.blogspot.com/ Here's a pic of what I won and I absolutely LOVE the sheep punch needle!!!! And the rabbit punch needle is soooo adorable. I am still deciding if I want to frame the sheep or make a pillow out of it.

And here is the rabbit punch needle. Jan, I love both punch needle projects and sooo happy that I won your spring giveaway!!! Thank you so much.

I was also in a 4th of July swap on Prim Pals and got Sharon Posey. I opened the box and she had everything wrapped in crow paper. I love the paper but I really loved all the goodies. She sent an Uncle Sam, electric candle, an adorable embroidered hand towel and so much more. She even etched 1776 in the small candle! Here's pics of all the goodies I got. Thanks Sharon for such a great swap package!!!!!



And last but not least, I was in a supply swap at Old Farmhouse Gahtering and got Mary Thompson as my partner and she sent me the neatest items. She read that I have a hard time finding linen and sent me several pieces of linen for stitcheries! She also sent some flowers, lace buttons and a lot of amish pattern. Thank you so much for such a great swap Mary!!1 Here's pics of her swap.

So now you can see why I was doing the happy dance yesterday. I got three great packages in one day! How lucky can one girl be?
