One-Flower Wednesday & My Wins

Encouraging words of the day:
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. ~ Psalm 23:6, NLT
 
My husband and I were busy all day yesterday about the house and catching up with the mail, unpacking, watering the lawn, etc. etc.  Sounds boring but we were quite content with our puttering around.  I also opened my interesting packages that were in the mail.  

First I opened a package from  Anita at "The Other Side of Me." I won her giveaway which included the book, “Lots of Scraps,” a beautiful table mat called “Autumn Blessings,” and a set of coasters.  Thanks so much, Anita. What a wonderful giveaway.  Look!

Next was another giveaway I was lucky to win from Roberta at "Taking the Scenic Route." This was a gorgeous fall mat with appliquéd acorns and braided edging.  It is just gorgeous and much more beautiful in “real life” than in my My little wooden duck loves it too. Thank you so much., Roberta.  I will enjoy this for many years.

Today is One Flower Wednesday!  Good thing these hexie flowers can be sewn up while watching tv.   Here’s what I did last night watching “Dancing With the Stars.”

That is all for my 4th day of blogging for the  "Blogtoberfest"

There is nothing wrong with a day of puttering around the house, getting some of those 'little things' done. Your new table topper and mat are gorgeous! You're very lucky to have won them.

You are certainly lucky this week.
I also watched Dancing and did hexies. Never waste a moment.
The small pumpkin quilt is sweet.
Have a great week. Blessings, Brook

Love the acorns on the Autumn mat. I'm getting all Autumn inspired but it's Spring here in Australia! Love you hexagon patchwork. Very pretty!

Beautiful hexie flowers this week! I've neglected my garden far too long. I'm hoping to have something to post next week.

Also loved the translation of the verse you have posted today. The word "pursue" really makes one think:)

You were lucky with your giveaways. Lovely flowers, that's when I do most of my handwork too.

I love your autumn winnings, especially the acorn placemat for your duck! Maybe your lost bear will like sitting on your other winning. How many hexies do you have now? Love the one in peach tones, and especially like the paisley looking fabric with the 4 long red petals. I am at second job now and I brought my Americana tablecloth and my seam ripper.....(check my last blog post)......
