“You’ve Got Mail!”

Don’t you LOVE hearing those words…especially when you see that the ‘mail’ is in the form of a parcel! 

Yahoo, I’ve got mail!!

A few weeks back I won Anne’s (Cottons ‘n Wool) Give Away!  And what a Give Away it was!  Anne had gone to Market…and in short order, had us drooling over JoAnn Mullaly’s new book… “Folk Branches”!  image As you can see…JoAnn’s Market Booth was crammed with all of the projects found in her new book…You can read about it HERE

Anyway, I was all hyped up about this book…the projects and the Folk Branch Quilt ALL look amazing, so of course I wanted to win..badly!!

Did you hear the “YAHOO!!!” coming all the way down the western coastline of Canada?!  Yup, THAT was me…I won!  I WON!!!


Here’s my win!!  Isn’t she purdy!  Tomorrow comes my Book Review…

Look what else Anne sent!! HOMESPUNS!! I am always AMAZED at the generosity of bloggers!!  Anne knew that I was having a hard time finding homespuns for my Homespun Houses…I LOVE these!!   Looks like Anne is going to have a Homespun House on my quilt!


Thanks again, Anne!!  That was SEW SWEET of you!!

If you have never read ‘Cottons ‘n Wool’ Blog then for goodness sakes…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  Anne has got SEW much eye candy on her blog…you’re going to need to wear sunglasses!  Plus she hangs with some VERY cool Woolie Ladies who are always up to something fun!  HURRY over NOW and tell her Sweet P sent you!!

Have a Wild and Woolie Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. Congratulations Paulette. Looks fabulous!

  2. How fun! I've held giveaways (even have one going now) and entered tons but never won. You must have magnetic vibes going out to the Random Number Generator heh heh. I can't wait to see what you make! It's funny cause I have tons of homespun that I bought for the shop but no-one bought it. Do you think I should re-list it? I'm sitting here staring at the bolts of homespun right now. hummm... Well, have fun with that new book! Cheery wave from Bev

  3. I can't wait to see your review, love what I have seen of the book.


  4. Congratulations on your win Paulette! I just love reading your posts, you have such a way with words and I wondered what that "YAHOO" sound was and where it was coming from, now I know!

  5. Lots of creativity in that book, and so very nice of Anne to include those blue homespuns, great shades of blue. n

  6. Paulette,

    You are going to love this book, I got it on my visit to the Country Loft in May and adore it.

    I also got her Wool Crazy project book. I'm planning on working on them both when things cool off in the Fall.

    Enjoy the homespun.

    I also enjoy reading Anne's blog.

  7. Yep, I heard your "yahoo" from Nova Scotia! What a lovely book...and how generous of her to send you homespuns. Enjoy!

  8. Congratulations...They are both great. ENJOY!

  9. Congratulations you winner you!! Can't wait to see what you make from it.
