Sewing and a Giveaway I Won!

I was busy outside last week enjoying the beautiful weather and working  in the yard.  Today we are expecting rain and storms.  I forget that winter is not over yet!  We will have more cold weather.  I can't believe this is the last day of February!
I did do some sewing on some blocks of the month I am working on this year.  This one is from Aunt Grace - Circle of Friends.  I love the vintage look of the fabrics.
This pastel one is from my local quilt shop's BOM.  I love the pinks, greens and paisley fabric. 

I have another block of the month I am hand appliqueing and working on too.  I will show it later.  Those hand projects take more time for me!

=============================

I also won a giveaway from Jen over at Jen's Fun Things.
She had this package wrapped so cute I didn't want to open it.  Love the paper and card!

Inside were these heart placemats!  They are even quilted with hearts.
Adorable!
The backing fabric is as cute as the front with the striped fabric. 
I love anything hearts and these are the cutest!
  Thank you Jen for the giveaway!

Well gotta go ... I need to make a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to pick up some items I need before the storm and rain comes through this afternoon.
Have a good day!

Hugs,
Donna
