Still Lucky!

I decided to pop in here and do a little post. We are down to less that a week of vacation left. We have got lots of things accomplished in the past 2 weeks. I think we will soon be ready for winter. (Not really! I am never ready for cold, snow, wind, and ice! Makes me cold just typing it.) We had hoped to go visit each of the grandbabies while Kevin was off, but that hasn't worked out so far. Makes a difference when their parents work and the grandkids are in school. Noah's birthday is coming up. Maybe we can all get together for that.

I am still lucky. A couple of weeks ago I won a giveaway over on Pat's blog. It was a good one. I received it last Saturday. Haven't had time to do anything with any of it yet, but plan to do some playing soon. Here is everything.
Here are a few closeups of my goodies. This is the layer cake. It is called Winter Song by Deb Strain for Moda. I love it. I already know what I am going to do with it. Debi sent me a PDF file of how she makes log cabin quilts from a layer cake. I am anxious to try it.
Also these three rulers: flying geese, pineapple, and kaleido. I love different rulers.
There was a journal, triangles on a roll, a cute little cupcake plate, and a cotton picker. (grin)
I felt like it was Christmas morning, opening this box. (grin) Thanks so much Pat.
I won another giveaway back in August from Jill. I neglected to post about that. Here are the two books I won on Jill's big giveaway.  There are some cute quilts in these. Sorry Jill, for taking so long to post about this, but I love them.
I made a trip to JoAnn's during their Labor Day sale and picked up these fabrics. Most are Debbie Mumm.
I have already started a Bow Tucks bag with the cute polka dot, striped, and coffee cup fabrics.
After I got this bag cut out, I realized that I had enough fabric for another bag if I changed things around a bit. So I cut out another one.
These are all ready for machine quilting. I'll do my usual diagonal crosshatch. (grin) Cyndi, recognize the front pocket fabrics? I cannot tell you how many times I have gone through that box of scraps. Every time I find just the perfect piece. LOL

Thank you all for the kind comments on my Pink Dreams quilt. It was a lot of fun, but now my sewing area is a disaster again. When will I ever learn to put things away after each project? Or for that matter, when will I learn to finish a project before starting another? LOL

Before I leave, I want to tell you about a giveaway that Lana is having. I don't usually post about giveaways, but she is so sweet, I decided to post about it. She is giving away a honey bun of...well, you will just have to go to her blog and check it out because my brain just went blank. Happens a lot any more. LOL So go check out Lana's blog and enter her giveaway. Thanks for visiting and please come again. My vacation is almost over, so I hope to be back regularly again. Have a great day.

What a treasure chest of fun you have there!

Goodness, Winona- you need to run out and buy a lottery ticket!! Hurry before your winning streak is over! *giggle*
That is a wonderful prize- the fabric is gorgeous... I can't wait to see what you're going to do with it.
Hope you're not working too hard on your "vacation"... whenever my hubby takes a day off, we work ourselves silly then he says, "I'm going back to work to get some rest!" (har har he is such a clown. *LOL*)

Debi said...

You are lucky in the giveaways..congrats. I love the fabrics for the bag!

Granny J said...

Congratulations on the win. I love the fabric colors.

Cyndi said...

Very nice wins, Winona! There are so many generous bloggers out there! And I am happy that that box of scraps has come in handy and you're finding pieces that you can use! :o)

So sorry your vacation is about to end, but glad you and Kevin got a lot accomplished. I'm with you - I am definitely not looking forward to winter - yuck!

I am happy that you'll be posting regularly again, though!



Beth said...

Gorgeous fabric! And I love your Rooster header!!

Teresa said...

Congratulations on all your wins Winona! I couldn't win anything if it was handed to me, lol! You and Kevin should spend the rest of his vacation relaxing or doing something fun! Hope you get to see the grandkids soon.

love you,

Libby said...

Oh, you were lucky! What a wonderful bunch of things. I love that layer cake. Your bags are so bright and pretty. Sorry you didn't get to do any visiting, but it's nice to have extra things get done around the place.

Stray Stitches said...

Your received some great wins! Your bags are wonderful :)

~JoAnn~ said...

winona~ Love all your winnings, very pretty fabric from Joann's of course you already have something partially made from the fabric. You are such a good worker. When I buy fabric I like to let it season for at least 6 months or so preferably sitting in a stack in the most inconvenient place :) You are so lucky you get a vacation, we are waiting for roger's job to end so we might be able to go somewhere any where!!
Love ya treasured friend
Blessings to you both, Joann

Pat said...

You got some gorgeous winnings.......and...why should YOU be any different from the rest of us who rarely clean up between projects AND also don't finish every project before starting a new one?? LOL

Crispy said...

Oooo great wins always makes me smile when I see a friend's name in the winner column :0) I tried cleaning up my quilting mess in the guest bedroom.....the process is over rated LOL.


Cathi said...

What fabulous wins!! Congratulations! That layer cake looks like it contains some gorgeous fabrics.

jillquilts said...

Granny J said...

So did you buy a lottery ticket since you've had such a run of good luck? :)

I was given a Sunshine Award for my blog! (Who knew!? :-D) It's a kinda "networking" recognition that I'm passing along to you! There more information here on this site:
