Pin It Now!
Courtesy of Random Generator the winner is:

Janet From A Hug Delights!! 

She said: I love purple! I would love to win your little hexie. I pinned the tutorial already. I'm so slow making things for myself.

Congratulations Janet!! I will hopefully have an email out to you today! I am just looking for your comment in my inbox so I can message you. 

In other news I won a contest ages ago from Judith Tetley from Creative Studio @

I was so excited to find it in the mail box yesterday!! It can take forever to get things through customs here, as it can take a week + to get mail from here in Calgary to my parents in Ontario. SO to come from overseas it has been just under 3 weeks. 
Here are the pictures!

What a super sweet tag!!

My cat Kalesh was super interested and had to investigate the package as well!

Can you guess what it is yet??

Its a gorgeous little journal!

Its alot pinkier than this. My camera just did not want to pick up  colours but I was waaay too eager to wait until morning!
Inside cover- you can see the pinkiness better now

Back of Journal

I took this picture just now and you can see how antique pink it is. I just love it!!

Thank you so much Judith!!! I just love it and am madly debating to write in it or have it out on display as it is such a gorgeous piece of work!

On a random note:

 This is what I saw as I was on the bus from my LQS to work on Tuesday. I was highly entertained as this is in a very busy city. Now I am normally a country girl from a small town so this was just hilarious to see!

More sewing updates later. I am fighting with my machine at the moment regarding tension and I still need to quilt that baby blanket! Hopefully I will post again tonight or tomorrow :)

Have a fabulous day!!


  1. Thank you so much, Kallie!!! I'm looking forward to having my own hexie needle case!! What a gorgeous journal--amazing!!! Love the photo of the police/horse. Have fun quilting the quilt.

  2. Congratulations to the winner of your giveaway! And what a lovely little parcel too, the journal cover is just beautiful, so many pretty details!!!!

  3. Hopefully your tension problems are a thing of the past by now. Few quilting problems can top the frustration of tension that doesn't behave.

    Your beautiful journal was quite a win. It's almost too pretty to use. I'd be tempted to just have it on display too.
