I'M the Winner

Thank you all for commenting on my latest post.
I have closed the little give-away and am pleased to announce
that Karen of Quilts...etc. is the winner.
I hope you enjoy your cards, Karen.
Watch for the mailman!!
I'm actually the winner
because I have so many wonderful bloggers to visit each day
while I have my morning coffee,
who leave sweet comments on my posts,
and who inspire me endlessly.
Last evening, I finished the pillow I was making
for my wee one year old friend
and I am so excited at how nicely it turned out.
The stitchery pattern is from an earlier issue
and was so much fun to do. 
It held a special attraction for me
because it has that old-fashioned appeal.
In lieu of a ruffle, I tried putting binding around it
and I WILL be doing that again. 
I got the idea from THIS post on Sew Mama Sew.
I'll be traveling to Houston to visit my little friend
this weekend and I can't wait!
I hope everyone is having a glorious day.
