Lyn Giveaway Should You Ever Come to

This little book is to acquaint me with Yorkshire.  Short little articles/comments about the place and the people.
One comment that particularly caught my attention was this one regarding Yorkshire Pudding
- - - - - - -

I made and served this dish for years before I learned it’s name. 
Now some of you Yorkshire Pudding lovers may cringe when I tell you we usually served it with yogurt and syrup. 
I told you you’d cringe.
Everything I know about it is summed up here
Lyn Giveaway Should You Ever Com to Yorkshire

Some weeks ago I was reading Lyn’s posts when she posted about making Button Hearts 
Oh, my heart skipped a beat or so. 
I fell in Love with them. 
So Dainty, so Cheerful.
You can imagine my surprize when I opened the next gift to find  .  .  .

I’m in love

The caption on the next gift ‘In bloom all year . . . . ‘
caught my attention. 
Gee, if it was in bloom all year long I’m sure hoping it made it through the mails .

Ohhh, my!  It’s a Gerbera Flower just like the one I saw on
Lyn's Everyday Life Emporium

How did you know, Lyn?
You made mine

Thoughtful Lyn even included a neat book to inspire me to do more needlework. 
A great book with instructions for stitch after stitch and idea upon idea. 
Right now it’s bedside so that it’ll be the last I read before dreaming.

The illustrations are gorgeous.

To make certain I’d not forget my nightly inspirations,
Lyn sent along this jazzy journal and pen so 
I can record them.

You’re correct, there is one more goodie.
I kept this one for last, not only because it was the largest in size - remember I opened them according to size from little to BIG.

Hmm, whatever could this be???????

  8. Betty,

    You've described Lyn's portrait of Renee to a T.
    It is Priceless.


  9. Wow! What a treasure of a giveaway!! I think the careful thought and kindness that went into it are just as delightful as the actual gifts themselves!!

  10. What a lovely give-away to win! I liked the way you posted how you opened each gift--lots of anticipation for us to enjoy also!

  11. Hugs to Lyn you made beautiful things for Gerry, especially Renee. And Gerry I know you squealed with delight at those wonderful presents and beamed through the tears at Renee. HUGGIES. Will see those next month at show and tell, right!!!

  12. Sorry to Nancy C, who makes BEAUTIFUL quilts by the way, I didn't mean to leave you off my first comment. I LOVED the convert-a-tote out of the black and white sewing prints, wonderfully handy idea.
    ps now that your snail mail addy is "OUT" there maybe you'll get more goodies in the mail!

  13. What a stunning giveaway you won. I have missed so much over the last week of family. What a great treat for you. So much fun stuff to look at here. Pictures are never too much at making a posting long.

    Off to catch up on others, so far behind on all my reading,
    Kate - The Garden Bell

  14. What lovely goodies, Gerry! :-)

    I'm a yorkshire "pudden" fan myself! My family recently visited me from England and I asked them to bring only one thing... a new yorkshire pudding baking tin, for me!

    What a wonderful painting and ribbon brooch! Lucky girl! :-)

    Warm regards! Vikki x
