A few days ago Sheila of Seasons Of Thy Heart blog
had an impromptu giveaway. She gave away three
Gooseberry Patch books to the first three bloggers
who left comments on her post. I was number two.
I won "Gooseberry Patch Christmas" copyright
from 1999 (great year). It's a beautiful Leisure Arts
Publication hardcover book. It's chock full of Winter and Christmas crafts, ideas, decorating tips, handmade cards and ideas for gift wrapping. There's a section for handmade gifts, gifts from the kitchen and gift baskets.
There is a large section devoted to Festive Foods &
Glorious Feasts. There are recipes for candies and
sweets, cakes and pies. Grand feasts for Christmas
morning, a Holiday Open House, Pork Crown Roast, and much more. I'd like to share some photos:

There is so much more, beautiful photos abound.
Thank you, Sheila. It was very generous of you to
think of your blogger friends and to mail these
three hardcover books out to us.
I'll be back later today with some stitching progress on the Polly Daggett sampler and also a sampler I finished for Ashley, the Safrona Ager sampler.
