wonderful week and a winner

How can one top the miracle of the Chilean Rescue this week? The weather here was nice and I had a phone call from a dear friend....



The wonderful gifts I received this week
 But on the quilting side of things I was so happy to receive packages from two previous giveaways that I had won.

The first was an assortment of Halloween fabrics cut with a GO cutter die that I do not have from Darlene at SewCalGal. She even included three lovely notecards in the package!Her site is wonderful and I was so happy to be a winner in her giveaway.
The second was several beautiful crocheted items from Jeannie at Jeannie's Place. This was exciting because it was her very first giveaway.

Then this morning, I was notified by Linda at  Living4Quilting that I won her Fall into Fall giveaway. What a great way to start a new week.


I do have 82 of the 90 blocks I need for my star quilt done. I was reminded something about myself. I do not like to make so many of the same blocks.At least the fabrics are all different and that provides variety.

In the beginning, my blocks look great but as I go along, I get complacent and I am not so careful about my 1/4 inch seams....thank goodness the GO cutter makes the pieces accurate! But I just remind myself to slow down and take care then the blocks turn out fine.

I have really enjoyed the giveaway. I have met so many new bloggers and have enjoyed the inspiration that I got from reading their blogs. I was so busy that I didn't have much time to comment or even post this week during my "computer time" but I did find so many blogs that I am going to follow!


Now for the great announcement about the winner of my Fall into Fall giveaway. I used a random number generator and the winner is Tonya. Be sure to check out her blog and her Project Linus blog.

I think I will plan a new giveaway....watch for upcoming details



Special Update:  I just heard from Cathy at Pine Freckled Blog that I won her giveaway too...a selection of fat quarters....this has been a great day indeed!

Wow.. a big win. Even a die for the GO. Everyone seems to just love the accuracy the GO cutters give them. I have yet to give one a try. Have fun with your winnings!
