I won AGAIN.....YAHOO!!

OMY Goodness......I can't believe it!! I won The Perfect Caddy!! Remember I told you, when I went to Wisconsin, my aunt and cousin wanted me to go to a quilt show in Madison with them? I put my name in for a lot of give-aways and I was called today by Hinterberg Design
that my name was drawn to recieve The Perfect Caddy. I had put my name in for the drawing also when I was in Nashville. I guess the second time is the charm. lol Anyone want to rub elbows with me...hee hee
It will be shipped out to me in about a week. Make sure you check out the Hinterberg Design sight. Maybe you'll want to design your own Perfect Caddy.

I'm back from Wisconsin

It is always nice when your plans work out. I was going to be in Wisconsin for only 4 days and had lots to do, so it was nice that I got all in and then some. I hadn't planned on my brother having open heart surgery, but he did and I was able to see him twice. He is doing GREAT!

Now to accomplish what I did was a challenge because there is a lot of distance between EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING that was on my list. Think farm country. I wish I could have spent more time with one friend and that I had seen a couple more friends..Geri & Diane, we will get time I hope. I live 6 hours from there.

My aunt and cousin wanted me to go to a quilt show in Madison, WI with them. (Friday) That's about 1.5 hours from them. I really enjoyed spending the day with them and saw a great show.....even though I didn't win anything. Lots of drawings going on. I'm sure that Mystery Basket will be the last for a long The quilt above caught my eye. There were lots of beautiful quilts.

Ever see and taste a chocolate (covered) cherry tomato? Darn, I forgot to taste it.....well, I was going to bring it home and left it at my sisters:-( At least I got a picture. lol Above is a picture of it ....
Hope you all had a nice weekend.

MY Wonderful Mystery Basket Arrived!!

The Mystery Basket that I won from A Legacy of Stitches arrived today! What fun it has been going through all the cool fabric and patterns. Sandi did a great job of "stuffing" the basket. I love the basket too. Thanks Sandi!! Check out her sight......she has another Give-Away. She is having too much fun with these Give-Aways. Good thing she has Brown Bear and friends to help her out.

Puppy Love

Being a quilter and animal lover, I found this video too cute and can relate since my furry friends like to help too. Enjoy Puppy Love!

4000 Member block

This is what I've been working on.....the 4000 member block that Carol Doak designed for our Yahoo Quilting Group. I used three shades of my favorite color plus the brown. The color is Aqua, not blue as it appears. I'm pleased with it. Thank you Carol for yet another wonderful design.
