Michelle over at http://www.quiltinggallery.com hosted a blog hop in honor of her sites 5th birthday. I always enjoy blog hopping and seeing what everyone is doing and meeting new friends too.
I am thankful for the giveaways I won from Kari here, RoseMary here and Annie here
Kari www.freshcutquilts.com package arrived just as she described in her blog post and is truly a $125.00 value. Yikes! And included a autographed copy of her book “Tidbits from Triangles” Yikes!
Two bundles of Buggy Barn Basics fat quarters from Henry Glass, one Olfa Circle Cutter (awesome tool), these fine patterns from me, one of my books signed, and an out of print 100 Blocks magazine, and possibly some other surprise goodies. Opening this package will be a bit like Christmas morning for a quilter. It's well over a $125.00 value!
RoseMary www.artrageousquilter.blogspot.com shared her handmade tussie mussie.
I love all things Victorian and this was a welcome surprise. RoseMary included a note in her package that said “ Angela I hope you enjoy your tussie mussie, you can add anything you like.
My plan is to add a inspirational messages for each week of the 2013 year. One of three resolutions/goals I will make! This is what I placed in the tussie mussie for the 1st week of January.

Annie at www.bohemiannieart.blogspot.com offered blog hoppers who made a comment to her post a copy of her bohemiannie handbag pattern. I have not made the bag yet but below is a finished bag. If you would like this pattern I am sure Annie will be pleased to send you a copy.
I happen to be the winner of Annie’s giveaway and won her Peace, Love, and all things groovy necklace, made by Annie. No picture available since Annie will be mailing the necklace later.
Thank you Michelle for hosting the blog hops, and thank you Kari, RoseMary, and Annie for sharing your lovely gifts.
To all my friends in blogland I hope you make the New Year a good one. Everyday is a gift and we can choose what we do with it.
Peace, love, and art,
