Hazel Goes to Indiana

Thank you for visiting my blog
and entering the give away
for the PiNS pattern.

The random number generator
chose Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.
Congratulations, Carol!
I've forwarded your email address to Karen.

PiNS can be purchased at
Karen's Etsy shop,
as an instant digital downloadable PDF.
She has crushed walnut shells for sale, too.

I know that several of MY quilty friends
will be happy to receive a pincushion 
made from the PiNS pattern for Christmas.
Yours will, too!

On a quilty note,
not only did I find Dog Gone Cute
irresistible, the same was true for Hazel Hedgehog.

When Little Sister told me the story
of how my niece woke from her afternoon nap one day
and said to her mom, "Mummy, I was imagining I was a hedgehog..."
I had no choice, did I?
Especially since she was only days away from turning three?

It's almost bigger than my sweet girl!!

Hope you have a wonderful, funderful day.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.

Congratulations Carol :) I know she is going to love her gift. What a sweet and precious child your little niece is and what a fabulous smile. The story of her dream was a delight and oh my goodness, look at that wonderful pillow you made for her, one for her to lay her head on and have many more beautiful dreams. Lucky little girl :)

Is that a bow in Hazel's hair? That's awesome. Hazel is on my to-do list.

Congratulations to Carol! And I agree ... you had no choice. And look how thrilled she is with that pillow, which is adorable (but not as adorable as the sweetie holding it).

Quilter Kathy said...

What a little cutie!!!! She looks much cuddlier than a hedgehog, but she seems pretty darn happy with that cute pillow :-) I have that pattern and have plans for a granddaughter - she's grown and turns 20 in a few weeks :-) Love Elizabeth's animal patterns!!!
