I'm a Lucky Lady!

I used to think I was unlucky, but this summer I have won several blog giveaways. The generosity of quilt bloggers never ceases to amaze me. This is a great community to be a member of. (By the way, I know I am not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition, but this is how I talk. What can I say? LOL) A couple of weeks ago I won Debi's giveaway. I received it last week. This was a great giveaway. I won some great Gutermann threads and ribbon.
There were also these three wonderful charm packs. All three are colors I love. Looking forward to using these.
This all came packed inside this cute tote bag with the sweet card. I can use this tote to carry projects with me when I have appointments.
Thank you so much Debi. This was a great giveaway and I love everything.
I also received these in the mail from my friend Cyndi. These were a 'just because' gift. Aren't they cute?  Cyndi knows how much I love kitties. We have that in common. Now I need to decide on a project to use them in. Also, check out Cyndi's new button over on the right side of my blog. She makes awesome bags.

I spent some time quilting on Bob's quilt this weekend. I am now half-way done on the blocks. Hmmm, tomorrow is the last day of August. So much for my goal of having it quilted by the end of the month. LOL Oh well, I'll extend the goal a bit. Last night, I just needed to play. I was going through some scraps and found 5 leftover blocks from a quilt I did a couple of years ago. I drug out some stash and started playing . I haven't taken any pictures of it yet, but I am liking it. It will be a baby girl quilt, since it is pink. LOL I have never done a flying geese border, so why not try it? I just looked and found Callie laying on all my flying geese blocks. Now why did she have to pick the only place I had blocks laid out on the ironing board? I guess my hair remover roller will get some more workout. (sigh)  I also finished block 2 of the Raggedy Annie and Friends BOM. I'll try to show pictures of it tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting. Please come again and have a wonderful day!

NICE things you have gotten in the mail. I'll look forward to seeing this baby girl quilt once Callie gets off your "stuff" so you can proceed with the border. LOL

Such a cute photo of buddy on the side there. :) You have been lucky this month! Lovely gifties. I like writing how I talk and not always worrying about my English, but I wonder if people judge because of that. lol
Cats like ironing boards don't they.

Good for you, Winona!! I used to think I would never win anything either, but I was the lucky recipient of a couple of wonderful blog giveaways too a while back and it makes you feel kinda special!! *grin*
Love the Gutermann threads- I have a pack I bought last year with my birthday money and it has some gorgeous colors in it.
