One Very Lucky Lady!

   My studioQ group met last Monday...had a great time...and great inspiration from all.  I am lucky to be with such a talented group of ladies.  Our recipe word for the month was "Magical"; I thought about doing an optical illusion (also suggested by my quilter daughter) but couldn't find a simple one, so I chose to do a take off of Carol Bryer Fallert's Flying Geese, something I have been wanting to try anyway.


I also have a couple of other reasons to fee lucky...on the trip to Houston, our bus guide held several drawings to keep us entertained.  One of my two buddies and I both won the drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate from a local Fort Worth quilt shop, Berry Patch.

And my last "lucky" the show I had put my name and "blog" about the show in a drawing at the Quilting Arts booth.  I wasn't there for the drawing on Saturday night and as I hadn't heard anything from them, I just assumed someone else had won so thought no more about it.  Then when I got home from my studioQ meeting Monday, I had an email congratulating me on the fact that my name had been drawn!  Was I ever excited!  Yesterday this big box from Cloth, Paper, Scissors came UPS...and inside were so many marvelous things!  There was for starts a large "craft" bag with many pockets, etc.  Inside were: two calendars from the perspective magazines, misty fuse, steam a seam, warm and natural batting, three magazines, and a package of fat quarters from Moda fabrics!  Forty-four fat quarters in all!!

I am still on cloud nine!!!  Now, I really have a reason to get busy and use all these wonderful gifts!!
