Before I get to the giveaway I just wanted to show some pictures of my Christmas cactus. It has a little bloom on nearly every branch! I can't wait for it to bloom! It is going to beautiful!
Here is a close up of the little blooms.
Now to the giveaway. Well, I see my pictures are backwards again! Sorry about that. I quickly uploaded these before I left for work this morning. This is the back of two of my giveaway items. First is a candy twist bag and second is a good luck doll called Village Girl.
Here is the front of the candy twist bag and good luck doll. She is a little bag, also. I made these from a book by Kumiko Sudo called Omiyage. I have made several of things she designed and love her work. The candy twist bag is a nice little bag to carry just about anything in. I like to use them to carry my ball of yarn in when I am crocheting with #20 crochet cotton. The Village Girl is suppose to be a good luck charm, bringing goodwill and happiness to whoever receives her as a gift. I believe people would place little candies or such and in her and give her as a gift. I just love the way she looks and keep several little items in mine.
I choose these two bags fabrics for the season. The candy twist bag is in Christmas colors and the Village Doll is for Thanksgiving. To win these two bags and some surprise sewing items please leave a comment on this post. If you link my giveaway to your blog I will enter your name twice! I am really excited about this giveaway as it is my very first! I will draw a winner on Friday, November 21st.
Now let me tell you about something that happened at work yesterday! My boss came in to replace some fluorescent light bulbs for me that had burned out. They are the really long ones in the ceiling light fixtures. He had replaced two and had two more to go. The last two new bulbs were laying partly on a chair and along the floor right in the walkway. I was rushing back over to my desk to lay some things down so I would be able to hand him the last two bulbs and since these bulbs were laying down so low and not in my eyesight I ran right into them. I guess I was concentrating so on putting the stuff down on my desk that I totally forgot the bulbs were there! One of the bulbs hit the floor and exploded! My boss said it sounded like a gun going off. Little tiny pieces of glass shot everywhere! You would not believe how far that glass traveled! It was a mess to clean up! I am still finding little tiny pieces of glass here and there! I sure hope that never happens again! I felt so bad because this was a brand new bulb, but my boss said not to worry, it was OK. He wasn't upset at all. He is suppose to come back today and get another bulb and replace the one I broke. I think I will just sit at my desk while he does!
