Gnomes and Winners!

The weekend before last, we had an after Christmas,
Christmas brunch celebration for the kids who couldn't be
home for the holiday's.
It was right after Epiphany, so still within the holidays, right?
one of the gifts, for Jill, was a little apron I made out of a dish towel and I used the
panel from the Happy Zombie.
I turned one of the little gnomes into a pot holder and the other one is a pocket on the apron.

Then... I finally released the "wedding quilt" to the kids-
all quilted and bound! Did I mention king size???

( I think I'm ready for more Dresden's!)

I wanted to thank everyone again who shared a funny story or a joke for the hubs!
And thank you all for entering the giveaway too!
Before I announce the winner I wanted to share something funny with you too!
(well, I think it's funny)

and now,
the winner of the
Victory Garden embroidery kit is:

#81,who is non other than: Kelly at Charming Chatter!!!
and the winner of the Henrietta Turtle kit is:

#33 which is: Jen at Miss Punkie Pie!!!

but wait!
I have to tell you that I was talking with one of the owners of Quilter's Paradise,
where I purchased the kit, and I was telling her how many people loved the turtle pattern and kit...
and she said that she would be happy to offer my blog readers a 10% discount on
Henrietta Turtle... just mention Pink Pincushion!
They are really fun to make- you could even make a herd of turtles!
