To Give and To Receive


Sweetgrass Prairie dresden candle mat off to it's new owner, Margaret.  

Thank you to Carol and Penguin Books for my winning copy of Sonoma Rose.  I started reading it last night and couldn't put it down.

Lucky you, I was happy when I saw that you had won that last week. I'm #62 on the wait list at the library. The candle mat is so pretty. I love the background. What size plates did you use? After I'm finished my current dresden plate I want to try doing a smaller one.

Carol said...

How do you like the book so far? Your Dresden candle mat is so cute.

Lovely quilting around your DP.
I love it, when reading a book and not being able to stop.. Have fun finishing the book.

Wow! My heart skipped a beat when I saw how beautiful the candle mat turned out and hugged the thought to myself that it is going to be mine :)
Congrats on winning the book. It looks like a great read.
I have one Jennifer Chiaverini book but it is a hardback three volumes in one and it weighs a ton.
I think I will have to donate it as I am used to my Kindle now.

I just love that candle mat. It´s so pretty!
I´m listening to a book when I´m sewing, and reading the same book when I just sit in my sofa!!!
I´ts so good so I just have to know how it will turn out!
It´s a Norwegian writer (crime novel) and its heavy like a brick!!!
Have a nice day!

Love those spring colors and Margaret will too! I haven't ready any of the Elm Creek novels yet - sounds like I should!
Cheers!

I can't wait to read Sonoma Rose. I've read all of Jennifer's other books in the Elm Creek series...and in order too!

I must check with our library to see if they have this one in yet.

Love your dresden block. The colors are very apropos.
