  1. Funny you should ask where we're from as the reason I was drawn to your post is the cardinals on the fabric, which is the state bird of Virginia. Which is, incidentally, where I'm from! To continue the theme I wish I could be "home" right now, back in VA with my family.

  3. I am originally from MN, but find myself in a not-very-festive southern california. It's hard to get in the holiday mood when it is so darn nice out! Right now I'm a bit chilly, and I would love to be in a nice steamy sauna some where.

  4. Oh, what lovely cardinals, against Gold! I'm from Syracuse, NY, where there are plenty of cardinals. None in Sweden though, but there are other nice red breasted birds with a mournful whistle. I would love to be walking in the forest, crunching in the snow, but it's time to sleep!

  8. I am resident in Fredericton, New Brunswick. ;) I would love anything you make. It's so sweet to have things all around my house that you've made and given to us. I don't have festive pillowcases, and I think those would look great on our bed this winter. Right now I wish Tyler were home with us and I could be sewing. Love you.

    I'm in Texas and wish I was sleeping!! The cardinal pillowcases are cute and they remind me of a story. One winter day I found my two cats looking out the window and talking to each other like they were planning something. That was strange so I looked outside and saw a cardinal sitting on the gas grill. The cats were "planning" how they were going to get him. Unfortunately for the cats they weren't allowed outside!! Lucky cardinal!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!
