New Bag and I Won a Giveaway

It has been nearly a week since I posted.  I don't know where the week went.  I have adjusted to the time change ... I hope.
Here is my new Christmas bag I made this week.  It was a very simple pattern and easy to make.  I will definitely use this pattern again.  The fabrics I used are by Nancy Halvorsen.  It's just as cute on the inside with green fabric.  I can't wait to carry it.  Christmas will be here before we know it!

It felt like Christmas when I received a giveaway I won recently from Marilyn at Heart Songs.

I opened the box ... look at all the goodies!  Everything was wrapped in bright colors :)

So many packages!

Marilyn sent me teacups, Colorado teas, notecards, owl napkins, Colorado flower seeds, magnets and a memo pad with some bling!

There's more ...
Oops!  I can't take a picture around here without Flip wanting in the pic!

Let's try this again without Flip!
I have a beautiful new bracelet and earrings, a little teapot keyring with a measuring tape in the spout (so cute), Pass It On Cards and more.  Marilyn was very generous!
I just finished reading the book "Promise Me" this afternoon ... I couldn't put it down. 
And here is the Mary Engelbreit socks!  Love me some ME!  I have been looking for some of these but could not find my size.  They make my feet happy :)
Thank you so much Marilyn!

I am busy working on Christmas projects so I need to go back to the sewing room.  I have "stuff" everywhere!

Thanks for visiting and God Bless!

Congrats on the giveaway!

The bag is so cute-it would entice me to shop for lots of small things for our Christmas stockings. I love to find treasures for the whole family. If you have something stuck on the bottom of a pan, you will be able to use the pink pot scraper to get it off. And now you will be able to sample some hot tea on a chilly day. ;D

Have a lovely week. ♥♫

Hi Donna - your new bag is beautiful, you are so talented! I've been making little zipper bags all weekend, I need to make myself a big one! What great gifts you won...I think my favorite is the teapot tape measurer. :-) I hear you about the "sewing room" dining room) looks like a bomb hit it! LOL

It looks like you hit the Mother Lode, Donna. Flip was just inspecting it for you.
