when i returned from my travels and travails throughout chile and argentina, a package was awaiting from canada, a bundle of pure joy i had won on a blog giveaway at the grower's daughter, a blog i have been following regularly for about a year now. i never win anything at roulette, bingo or 21, never won a dime at the slot machines, never a single raffle but boy did i win BIG when i signed up for this one. thank you so much maria for such a generous bundle. i must now find little corners around the house to display the pillow and bag and use the ephemera and fabric to incorporate into one of my future fabrications. much love.
