Still Thankful

"Cornucopia Wool Applique Mat"
design by Maggie Bonanomi
One final autumn finish before I turn my sights towards Christmas...
I wish that autumn lasted longer! I have at least three other autumn designs that were waiting in the wings.
I just have to share my good luck/blessings!
I was oh so fortunate to win not just one, but two giveaways recently!
First, I won this fabulous collection of vintage postage stamps from Joan at "Anything Goes Here" - you can see her blog here and her awesome etsy shop here. I just love her photographs! Thanks Joan! I'm thinking these will be perfect for some type of Valentine crafting...
Next I won a half yard of the most wonderful wool from Wendy at Simple Folk. Stop by her blog here. Wendy has a great online shop for your wool & crafting needs here. I'm a happy customer and won her giveaway by suggesting that she kit Maggie Bonanomi's Tropicals Under Glass from her book, "Nature's Offerings". I'll be watching for it ;)
Well, now that I am moving on to the Christmas holiday season, I've started decorating and had to share the new home I found for the Angel Wings that we made with Maggie Bonanomi at Boxwood & Berries:

I probably shouldn't admit this, but I garbage picked this incredible window from an old Victorian house down the street. I love the monochrome look :) I'll be sharing more decorations, just as soon as we get a little sunshine ~ the better for picture taking!

That mat is absolutely gorgeous Patti!! Wish I had more patience for applique. And your wings are adorable - they're displayed perfectly in that awesome window. (Gee - you seem to have amazingly good luck with your pickings and bargains!!) Congratulations on the wins too - that wool is gorgeous! Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Fantastic applique! You picked a beautiful piece from the curb. Think of all the things you can hang from it without putting all those holes in the wall. What a great idea.

Your wings turned out wonderful! Good for you rescuing that window from the landfill. I know you'll put it to good use throughout the year. What nice prizes! I just picked up Maggie's Buttonwood Farm book and saw her design out of old stamps so I know you'll come up with something amazing with those stamps. ~Roberta
