Is She a Winner?

(Click on the photo for a larger view.)

YES! Look what I won. (Sorry if you thought I won Tatting Chic's fabulous 50,000 Visitors Celebration Giveaway...but I kind of did.)

Back on July 5th I posted about receiving a super-duper awesome gift in the mail from JB. It was my prize for winning the Pay It Forward Giveaway on her blog. The workmanship and thought that went into this gift are jaw-droppin' awesome and I'm thrilled to be able to show them to you now.

Isn't this the prettiest heart-shaped bookmark? Be sure to click on the image because it is even more beautiful close up. I have to tell you that I cannot tell where she made her final thread joins! It looks completely seamless. And yes, this bookmark is my new favorite.

But that's not all! Check out this splendid, embroidered linen hand towel she made for me. Linen! Aren't the colors vibrant? The flowers cheery? Just look at the details. I just LOVE IT! Here is a close up of the monogram.

It looks so pretty hanging in my powder room. I wish I had another one for my other powder room. Maybe I'll proffer a trade or offer to pay her on commission. But a trade would be more fun.

JB, if you're reading this, would you be interested in making one more of these lovely hand towels? Let's chat about what I can make for you (that is, if you are interested). :-)

Thank you for all the nice comments. I am glad that you like them. I will be glad to make you another tea towel. Please let me know if you want the same colors or different ones.
