I Won!

I was so lucky to win a giveaway from Miranda at the Tatting Fool blog. This package arrived very quickly, and my first thought was why was, it so big and heavy? It turned out there was an extra surprise inside--a package of Biscochitos, the official cookie of New Mexico, flavored with cinnamon and anise. I do love cinnamon. I had enough will power to wait until I charged the camera battery and took the picture. But since then, I've been eating quite a lot of them. Will power only goes so far, you know ;)

There were three thread samples, and not just any thread, but HDT by Lady Shuttlemaker and Yarnplayer. Plus, a snowflake made with each thread so I can see how they work up. The snowflakes are all Miranda's designs, and I especially like the one in the middle. My picture is pretty poor, but I can tell you these are very nicely done.

There are Delica beads and Gingher scissors with a leather point protector in a little tin. Three crochet hooks, two of them the tiny sizes great for pulling beads onto picots, and one with a comfort handle. And everything in a pretty re-usable fabric bag.

Thank you Miranda, for being so generous!


  1. Wowie!!!! That is so neat! Fun stuff to brighten the day!!! Love to see what you do with those threads, Martha!

  2. Wow! That is a lovely giveaway win. Lucky you!

  3. I'm so glad you like everything!

    Biscochitos are highly addictive-- that's why I only buy them for other people.;)

  4. Congratulations! I'm not sure I'd have had your will power with the cookies. Enjoy your new goodies!

  5. Lucky you! Congratulations! I love Miranda's blog and her comments! She makes me chuckle! She's awesome! ♥
