Giveaway gift from down under

A little while back, Vicki from Sew Useful Designs  hosted the most wonderful giveaway.  She was giving away 2 hearts she designed for HOMESPUN magazine, a great crafting, sewing, quilting, stitching magazine from Australia.  She also included a copy of the Homespun issue her project was in, 2 fat qaurters and the most special little personalized fabric name tag that she made just for me.  That's right ME, the winner of such a wonderful collection.  I was flabbergasted.  I never am "winner" when it comes to contests.  Thank you Vicki, I love it all!!!!! And my mom loved it and the girls in my quiltin' chicks group loved it all too.  I had to pry the stuff away from them, lol.  You are a wonderful person and very creative artist.   Here's what she sent.  It's so great, so feminine and pretty!! 

Here's a picture of the hearts by the article, the are sooooo cute, who doesn't love pretty fabrics, buttons and hearts!!!!

Vicki, I'm sorry about the next photo the color is WAY off.  I think I forget the flash!  But  look at the backs of these special little hearts.....................

Can you see it?  One them has a special little pocket to tuck secret little notes or small surprises.  She added  such fun little details.  Love it! 
GO VISIT HER, YOU CAN VISIT AUSTRALIA AND ALL HER CRAFTINESS.  BE SURE TO TELL HER HI!  But be quiet, she may be sleeping at this time??  It's about midnight!
Vicki, SEW USEFUL DESIGNS , her own version craftiness from down under!!
