Sweet Teen Won!

Sweet Teen won her first give away over at Marydon's blog!
You can go here to see the give away drawing!
When she opened the box she immediately saw the quilting magazines!
She could not look at all the stuff because she was so excited about the magazines.

She kept showing me quilts and she got so excited. I do believe that it is in her blood.

Oh Gran.....look at this!

And look at this! She looked at each one.

Then she organized them in stacks.

She loved them all but she did have her favorites.

She was already telling me plans that she has for all of these goodies.

She recognized the hexagons! We worked on some not too long ago.

She looked at each little square and she talked about making a postage stamp quilt.
It thrilled me to see her so happy about all of this. I will be showing what all she makes with all of these goodies. There was even some vintage soak wash in this package. There was a card with some breakfast tea for me! The day I took this box over to her house, Sweet Teen was organizing her room. When I got there she had most of her sewing area all organized. Once she opened this box she could not wait to get upstairs and add all this to her stash. Sweet Teen says thank you! I say thank you!

What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

Awesome! That seems like a great giveaway prize, lots involved! Sweet Teen seems to really have her head on straight. A teen that organizes? We should clone that.

G'morn Val & Sweet Teen ~ I am so tickled with these darling happy pics ... it is so nice to know a 'teen'/young person would be interested in creating/sewing as is Sweet Teen ...

Will be anxious to see where she put all these items in her work area, & her creations as she goes along.
