Exciting Friday

For over a month now I have had this adorable vintage grain/feed sack that I have wanted to do something special with. My days have been so chaotic that I have not had the time to just sit down and decide what I wanted to do with this sack. It is one of my very favorites as it is so incredibly soft and has the cutest muted checkerboard around the top, sides and bottom. Fortunately I was able to get two pillows out of this sack.

They are both huge 27" x 21". One has a large crown and the other a sweet Dragonfly with the French words "small Dragonfly". These pillows are so hard to part with, but I just can't keep everything. It was very exciting to finally use this sack and share it with all of you.

My next excitement on this Friday is to announce the winner of the Gothenburg pillow. My dear friend Karen was appointed the difficult task of selecting a name from the hat. ~Drum Roll~ The winner is, Jackie from Jackie's Journey Blog. Congratulations! This is the pillow that you have just won.

Thank you to everyone who has left a post. Please check back often, as I love having giveaways.

Have a wonderful and exciting weekend.

Love the photo Michelle. You look so happy and content.

I'm glad you are taking the day off. I took some of the day off. I had a few projects to finish this morning, then I threw my hands up and said, I'm going out to the garden and play. And that's just what I did.

xo Cathy
